Little Big Show Recap - Aug 20th, 2012
Forty-two players showed up in Neosho for the 5th Annual Little Big Show. Despite a lower attendance, there was no less challenge or fun experienced by the players. All were treated to a players pack that included a high end custom Innova disc, a custom stash mini from Gateway, and an awesome lunch provided by Sam's Cellar. It was a near perfect day for golf with temperatures starting off almost cold and gradually warming up. Almost the entire tournament was played with overcast and little to know wind. I kind of want to order a few more days like that for tournaments!
The talk of the event was for sure the 3 new pin positions. These 3 holes raised the par 55 course to a tough par 57. For those familiar with the course: holes 14, 17 & 18 were all extended and brought thick woods and OB in to play. Great job Chris and John Scheafer for sinking the new pin placements! The OB's and Tee Pads were all marked very well courtesy of the Davison family and the Joplin Disc Golf Club's use of their paint. Thanks Michael, Isaac, and JDGC!

A true high light was when Romeo Hayner one the basket in the drawing. His son was so excited and gave several fist pumps unable to hide his excitement! Great Stuff!!
Congratulations to all winners and those of you who cashed. A especially big congratulations to Chris for his repeat win. You played solid bud! Looking forward to the next 2012 Lucky Monkey Tour stop that will be in Nixa, MO. We will again be remembering Dale Robert's (the man responsible for installing the course in McCulley Park). The DRM will be Saturday September 8. I hope to see you all there!
