    They're here in the US too. They were announced a few weeks ago by Innova.

    3rd round update
    It's a little after a 11am and I just finished my 3rd round. The top 64 played 18 holes. Everyone after that only played 9. Sylvia Vokes beat me by 4 strokes. We have been joking all week on who is going to win. She played it safe today and held her lead. I tried to make up ground on the 2 people in front of me and that and the severe wind today caused a lot of my already bad shots to be worse.

    I will give an update later today. I'm getting ready to go back to the course to get lunch and to watch a disc dog expo and a long distance comp. before the final round starts at 2.

    Martin, I got the discs that you requested.

    Until later,
    Jason Van Over

    Final Update
    As a lot of you know, Dave Feldberg won the open division by 11 strokes and Val Jenkins won the womens division by I think 10. I watched as much of both final 9s as possible and I might appear on the DVD in both galleries. They were happening simulataneously so I ended up watching the women mostly and watched about 4 holes of the men. The women were more entertaining to watch in my opinion. It was really windy. The wind was gusting about 50 miles an hour or more. Hats were flying everywhere. 150g and wind are not a good match.

    This was an experience of a lifetime for sure.

    See you guys in a couple of days.

    Well I'm back! I hope to be at leagues tomorrow night back to throwing max weight discs. I might have a 150 or 2 in my bag to help me transition back until I can get the discs replaced with their max weight counter part.

    I have a star roc with archer stamp for Sam
    I have a pig and monarch for Martin
    I have a couple of discs for Michael to choose from that I bought while I was there. Wraith or QJLS. His choice.

    The player package was UNBELIEVABLE.
    We got a:
    Innova bag XT. It is a disc bag/roll cart/travel bag.
    CampTime stool with special Japan Open print from HukLab
    T-Shirt
    Metal Mini with JO stamp
    set of 3 flippee discs (small disc about the size of a mini that you can snap fingers to make fly)
    Toss around disc almost the size of an ultimate disc by Hero
    Hero 235 disc in 131g - It is the mold that the Sonic is made from
    A Dodgebee 200 disc - Dodgeball with a disc

    The players package was worth the same or more than the entry fee.

    Thanks to everyone that responded with well wishes and just read the updates. It was good to communicate back with the homeland. I met a lot of cool people, had dinner and drinks with The Champ and a lot of other stories best not shared on the message board.

    By the way. Climo beat me in ping pong. One thing on my list that I didn't accomplish. I blaim it on the paddles. No padding house paddles stink!
