Duncan Doubles, Oct 8th and 9th!
It's time for Duncan Doubles at the Duncan Lake course! This is an opportunity to enjoy the rigors and rewards unique to the Duncan Lake course, and in a doubles format. Although we were rained out last year, the fall season course maintenance made a remarkable difference when it came time to prepare for the Hillclimber, so we're doing it again this year!
Hotels are available in Duncan--but camping is where it's at, so bring your gear and load up those coolers!
Pro: $80 per team
Adv: $70 per team
Am: $60 per team
Nov: $50 per team
Mixed teams are always welcome!!

DUNCAN WORKDAY - Grab your work gloves and join us at the Duncan course this Saturday, October 1st, at 9:00am, when we'll be clearing tee pads and sharpening throwing lines. At noon we'll light some coals and grill up burgers and dogs for all volunteers. And yes, we plan to end workday early enough so that we can put down the weed eaters and loppers and pick up some discs for an afternoon of Duncan golf.
We will be renting some of the larger equipment to help us clear the course.
Working on this course in the fall makes it much easier to prep for the Hillclimber, so please come and help if you are able!
See you at Duncan!!

Second First Annual Duncan Doubles Report and Results
"It's deja vu all over again." - Yogi Berra
Sooner Disc Golf brought the rain to Duncan once again for our second First Annual Duncan Doubles Tournament effort. And despite scheduling conflicts (read: OU/Texas weekend, October Friz) that no doubt contributed to low turnout, and the challenging weather conditions, the tournament was a success! Every team bested the rain, mud, and wind to complete the three round format--and Sooner Disc Golf rewarded them for their tenacity, paying out discs and merchandise to every participant. Sooner Disc Golf has also used tournament proceeds to donate a basket to Duncan Lake's second course!
With only 5 teams playing Advanced and 2 teams playing Rec, it was anyone's game! The three round tournament consisted of two rounds of best shot and one round of combined score. Results:
1st: James "BCB" Kuhn and James Bierman
2nd: Mike Lightner and Sam Hazewinkel
3rd: Mikey Hooper and Billy Engel
4th: Marty Dayhoff and Steve "Dig" King
5th: Joshua Smith and Bobby Thomas
1st: Mike McCoy and Sam
2nd: Stan Herman and Larry New
The pouring rain and unsure footing made the formidable Duncan Lake course all the more challenging, as the winning score was a very modest 228 (+12):
Round 1, Best Shot: 53
Round 2, Combined Score: 60 and 66
Round 3, Best Shot: 49
James "BCB" Kuhn hit an ace on Hole #18 during Round 2, smashing chains with a low-line thumber!
I would like to thank everyone who came out for the Second First Annual Duncan Doubles. You made the tournament an incredible success, and more importantly, you made it a lot of fun! With improved scheduling and fortuitous weather, we plan to make Duncan Doubles bigger and better in '12!
