Hi all Uncle Bob Thurmon here.
We have been doing a couple of ebay auctions to memoralize Hall of Famer Darrell E. Lynn PDGA #0784. He passed on June 18th 2008. The Lynn family and I are asking all the clubs to chip in to help us buy a large solid bronze plaque which costs $3000.00 +or- but its close to that amount. We are only just above one third of the way and thats great. The not so great is that we are out of items to auction. If every club would just donate $25.00 and if they can 5 discs, that would help so much to reach our goal. Darrell deserves this honor. Go to ebay store Darrell Lynn Memorial Store to find out more or my ebay name discmanbob51. Read about the store and click the me part as well. We need help with artwork design for the plaque so if any of you are interested in volunteerig suggestions we are open. My cell 870-650-1332
We owe so much to Darrell so much. Please donate generously

OK, LISTEN UP LADIES. I am trying to help here. I am beginning to wonder if the ladies of disc golf really want to promote this sport or just gripe about the low numbers of women players. I have issued a challenge on other threads to help those who want to help themselves. RESULTS, the board went quiet. My wife and I are trying to build a disc golf resort near tulsa, oklahoma. We are not disc golfers but we love the sport and the disc golf community as a whole. We are absolutely putting our money where our mouth is. We have had the honor of having our course played by some very good women players, including Courtney Peavey and Valerie Jenkins. As newcomers to the sport, I do my research by surfing other clubs discussion boards and try to ascertain needs of the sport where we might be able to fill a niche. To that end, we are willing to host an all women's tournament with some substantial added money (depending on the number of entries). All I hear from women is their concern about the lack of competition or female competitors. It is obvious to me that we need to raise the bar for women in this sport. If there is genuine concern for this sport by enough ladies, then we are here to help you, ladies, raise the bar. If it is just a venue for negative comments then, count us out. Any ladies want to do something positive and good for ladies disc golf. The ball is now in your court. Jim Taylor, owner, The Lodge in Pawhuska, Ok. 918-724-3121.
