So what are your dg related goals for this year? I meant to ask this before the new year but it slipped my mind.

Here are mine in no particular order:

1) Play 3-5 new courses
2) Devote more time to putting and field work
3) Play atleast 5 sanctioned events
4) End the year with a rating of 860 or better
5) Get 3-5 new people into the sport and help them learn

Win my first PDGA event.
Cash in Advanced
rated higher then 900
Shoot a 1000 rated round.
Win the lottery and become a touring Pro

I am sure only a few will come true. I am most hopeful about the last.

Most hopeful about the last, but you should have more focus set on the other ones. The one you should start with is obviously you're first goal. Obviously, winning your first PDGA event is very fun, but then again every win is fun. I have 2 intermediate wins and 1 rec win, and they all feel equally as great. Looking for my first Advanced win this year. BTW, shout out to the All-Stars who gave out actual trophies to first place winners in the 2011 Pumpkin Bowl. I like that more than any amount of discs I have won. Having a trophy to be able to display for people to see is awesome. You can't really showcase a stack of discs.

That's awesome news! I haven't played the Henderson course either so that's on my to do list this spring.

Let us know if there's anything we can do to help you guys out.

Five?! You're joking, right?

Five?! You're joking, right?

Three in Evansville, one in Mt. Vernon, one in Petersburg.

The State Hospital and Petersburg courses may both be in by June, Hospital earlier.
A northside church camp (Camp Reveal) has had a course laid out by Doug Miller and Paul Oman. It's going to be a true wooded course. Their summer camp is in July and they want the course ready for it.

The Petersburg course has been laid out by Nick and Dane (they designed Mesker). It's going to be around a par 58-60 Championship caliber course with a lake coming into play on half the holes.

If everything works out, Evansville Open will be played at Mesker, Woodmere (state hospital) & Reveal.

Once Woodmere goes in the ground, our next club project will probably be to expand Mesker to a 27 or 36 hole complex.

Big things are happening in Evansville.

The other two courses aren't as far along in the process, but that could change soon.

Mesker is great how it is! Why change a great course? I've never understood why people do this...

Billy, the plan isn't to change Mesker. The plan is to go into the woods and carve out an ADDITIONAL 9 or 18 holes.

Essentially there would be the current course (Mesker "Meadows") and a new, Mesker "Woods" course.

Not sure what church you're talking about, but from what I remember about the north side that could be a hillier monster than Mesker.

I never listed any of my goals, but I can tell you this much: I have regressed on all of them.

In the interest of being positive, I have adjusted goals to appear as if I have achieved them.

1. Develop a nagging knee injury - check!
2. Throw a bunch of sub 850 rounds - check!
3. Throw 50' less and gain a lack of confidence in backhand - check!
4. Miss 10-15' on the regular - check!

What a year of achieving goals!

I guess I've made my progress on more of the administrative end of things.

Make an ace
Play more courses for sure
Get a 1st place finish in my division at a tourny
Check out a league night somewhere( which is hard for me since they are all at least an hour drive)
And for sure to get more players in my area organized so we can get something going down in central ky
