What a beautiful weekend for Disc Golf, at least until the rain
came in Sunday afternoon. I knew it was going to be a good day for
Sunday League because everyone was "on time" and once again seven
of the top 10 players were here to play. We had some new members
anxious to play in league day and hoping to win a lower tag for
their bag but as they would find out this is not an easy task.
The battle was on for the prestigious #1 tag. Earlier in the
week one of the members posted on his FB page that he was going to
"take it down and bring the one tag back to New Hampshire." That
created a bit of a stir with the other members and even a few
laughs but low and behold Spencer threw his best round of the year
and easily scooped up the coveted #1 tag for the first time.
Unfortunately for many of the members they will not have the
opportunity to win it back next week because Spencer will be in
Randolph playing in the next Green Mountain Disc Golf Tournament.

DFL did not come out and play this week so nothing happening
there. The outstanding story of the day was how important it is to
hold a low tag number. To win a lower tag from a player, you must

In the top ten this Sunday there was a four-way tie for second
place and a two-way tie for third and two other ties outside top
ten. The importance of being just one place better than the next
guy, shows just how competitive this group is! Things will get even
hotter when Tundji and Wes return.
Sunday league days have been great and the attendance
impressive. For anyone interested in playing disc or seeing how it
is played, this is a great opportunity to get involved. You do not
have to be a member or hold a tag to play. Chances are you will be
teamed up with an experienced player and most likely you will love
the camaraderie above all.
