Hello disc golfers! - Apr 23rd, 2009
Welcome to the Home of the Disc Golf Monkey. This site is relatively new, and we will be adding things all the time. I would like to start by saying a special thanks to my brother Gerald (the head monkey known as cwm) for all his work on the web site and the countless hours he has put into the designing of logos for my disc golf gear. You are the Ultimate Monkey bro! I would also like to say thanks for all my supporters through the years. Thanks for continuing to "Monkey Around".
As many of you know, I am now doing the Disc Golf thing full-time. This has allowed me more time to focus my efforts on tournaments, inventory, and many other things I have wanted to do for a long time. We will have our discs and gear for sale on the website soon. As for the tournaments, the 2009 Monkey Tour is on it's way.
The Lucky 13 Open was the official kick off event of the year. The opener was held in Republic, MO on a course I designed and installed back in December. This event was nothing short of awesome thanks to the Republic Parks & Recreation Department (director Jared Keiling), local sponsors, sponsors from outside the area, the Monkey Team, and all the players who came out to play. Sixty nine players from four different states took part in the event.
On May 23rd, the Monkey Tour will take us to Miami, OK for it's first PDGA event. The 1st Riverview Open will be held at Riverview park. The Ottawa County Disc Golf Club (OCDGC) has been diligently raising money for the event. The following weekend on May 30th, we will be headed south to Bentonville, AR for the 2nd Annual Lake Bella VistOpen. Randal Reisner (part of Team Monkey) has started the ball rolling and has come up with quite a few sponsors. We will be adding $500 cash to the Pro payout and the same amount will be divided in the Amateur fields! Both events will be well worth the trip. Hope to see you there.
