KINGSTON CITY CLASSIC WRAP

The 2016 Kingston City Classic has come to a close. Thanks to all who attended and helped to make this a fantastic success. We ended up with 29 people contesting across 10 divisions. The largest division by far was Novice which is exactly what we were aiming for.

Much thanks to many people.

First of all, I have to thank the wife and family for putting up with another tournament and helping out so much with everything. Merrilee Brunsting helped make the additional sponsor signs and Tee Markers and Danielle helped make snacks, run the BBQ and convinced about a half a dozen players to give it a go. This leads on to thanks the Outright Plumbing crew and the Rayner family for all their help and support. Hope to see you on a course again soon.

It was great to have the City of Kingston Mayor, Cr Tamsin Bearsley, there in the morning to officially open the event. I think we will get some great support from her if we keep up the momentum. I will send her a letter of thanks and we will b meeting with her.

Big Shout out to Racim, Allen and Darren who helped design, set up and break down the course. We were very happy with the final layout in general but would like to know what you thought about it as we will be doing it again next year. Thanks to Darren’s wife Amy who was the media coordinator for the event. Also thanks to Gail Lynch for the work that she did to help promote and run the tournament.

Thanks to Simon Feasey and RPM Discs for donating some discs for prizes.

Thanks JAB Project Design & Management for putting up $75 for an ace on the Island hole which unfortunately did not go off.

Thanks to Ray White Mordialloc for providing the event sign and Parks Victoria for allowing the event to be held at Braeside Park.

I am tired and may have forgotten some important people. If I have, we certainly did appreciate all you did for the tournament.

The unofficial results have been posted and can be found here.

Congrats to Racim for his first win as an Open player and Jarrath for coming in a close second. I was very happy to be playing in the top card in the last round for the first time.

Unfortunately, we were not able to hold the Anne Marie Bottomly event at this time. The interest was not high and it would have been just too much after a very long day. It will be rescheduled for another time soon. Probably at Ruffey Lake on Oct 21 at night.

Results – September 2016 League Day

We had 20 players for the September league day – held a week early since a significant number of members will be attending the Gold Coast Classic this coming weekend.

Some VERY hot rounds were seen – well done to Kaspar for a brilliant 50.

…and the Heath kids both beat their parents (dammit!).  Having cracked 90 for the first time in her (very short) career, Evelyn Heath again wins the league day with her brother coming second.

Results – August 2016 League day

On a rather windy day, which generally didn’t seem to affect scoring, 18 players braved the cool and the occasional showers for the August league day.  Evelyn Heath was a clear winner, but places 2 to 7 were very close, being separated by less than a stroke – slight variations in handicap were all that decided it.  That’s probably the closest outcome we’ve ever seen.

Results – July 2016 League Day

The 2016 league continued on a wonderful spring-like day with 19 players, including a few new competitors.

Of interest – every player with a handicap recorded a net under-par score!  Well done to everyone.

But special congratulations to Addison for winning two months in a row (and a second the month before).

Results – June 2016 League Day

This month we again played on the ‘normal’ course and although played under cloudy cool skies, the June league produced some very hot rounds with both Mat and Racim throwing a raw score under par.  Playing in the same group, Mat eventually shaded Racim by 3 and captured the No. 1 bag tag.

We had 19 players, including 3 making the trip from Geelong and seven new people coming along.  It was also great to see another junior come along – well done, Archie.

On handicap scores, Addison Heath managed to make it a double, having won the Geelong league day earlier this month. Congratulations.

2016 Year-To-Date Results

After five league days, we were down to just one player who has competed every month, and Tarron already had a clear lead on the field.  But now after eight he’s being challenged by a couple of juniors taking advantage of a significant improvement in their ability – Addison has won two and Evelyn three of the past five league days!

Roll on the final two events in 2016 – the October league day and the Melbourne Cup in November.  Note that (as was done previously) the Melbourne Cup afternoon round will count to the league results, the morning round will only score for the actual Melbourne Cup event.

May 2016 Results

With many of our members away at the SA Open (where I hear the VICs executed a clean sweep!), we always expected a low turn-out.  Over-all we were pleased to have 11 attend, including 3 first-timers.

Congratulations to Evelyn Heath who beat her previous best score by 15 throws to win this month’s handicap – let’s see the top players achieve that!  Her brother Addison also shaved a large amount from his previous best.

…and here are the results for the April 2016 league day.  This was played on the full championship course as a warm-up for the Vic Open.

On the strength of his win here, Racim elected to move up to the Open category in the Vic Open.  Let’s call it a “learning experience!”

VicOpen 2016 is closed ;) until next year

Hey DiscGolfers,

I want to thank everybody who came to the VicOpen 2016 and made this event an amazing experience. It was great to see people from all around Australia travel to Victoria and compete in the tournament. Special thanks to our interstate travelers Brook Pitzer (Thailand) and Simon Feasey (New Zealand) to make the journey. All of you made this event really special.

Watching the final 9 yesterday was a real pleasure. It came to a showdown between Simon Feasey (NZ) and Jarreth Sweeten (Geelong) who showed some fantastic golf. Jarreth played a very solid tournament with a 59, 56, 59. Simon was able to go into the final 9 with a 2 stroke lead after playing an unbelievable 3rd round shooting 52.

Congratulations to Simon Feasey for winning the Men’s Open devision, followed by Jarreth Sweeten, Patrick Robinsons and Rhys Kruger. Well done guys.

Congratulations to the winners of all the other devisions. The amount of junior and female players was fantastic and I hope we can continue to grow the sport here in Australia. The results of the event will be uploaded shortly.

Thanks to Gail Lynch a Frisbee sport legend who donated a $100 to the womens devision and came out on the last day to shoot some very nice pictures and support the game.

Great work by TD Jeff Brunsting and his family, the Heath family and all the other helpers who put a lot of time and effort into this event. I hope everybody had a great time and we are looking forward to seeing you all next year for the 10 year anniversary of the VicOpen.
