Unofficial results have been posted for Dutchland Doubles. The format that they have been uploaded is how the PDGA requests that doubles results are posted. I will be sending the official results to the PDGA, which breaks everything down by individual person so that you will each be awarded points for the tournament. Thanks again for being a part of Lancaster’s first sanctioned doubles event.
AM player packs and CTP prizes arrived today! Moonshine Witnesses and Black Sparkle Lucid Enforcers. Sweet flag and transition stamps!!! Tons of coozies, 2 Dyemax Suspects, 2 DD hats, 2 DD Drifits, and a DD bag for CTPs. We plan to have a couple in round CTPs, and a big CTP during lunch/after 2nd round. Don’t miss out! Get yourself a partner and sign up!!
Announcement: The next three Thursdays (6/26, 7/3, & 7/10) we will be playing doubles at Roland instead of at Ship Rock as posted on the schedule. We will still play Overlook on 7/19. After that, the rest of the Thursdays this season will be singles at Roland.
I know a lot of you were looking forward to the Rock, but the club has not had enough time to get the weeds whacked. We will be out there over the next couple of weeks getting it done. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Bill Geibel.
Results of the Trilogy Challenge have been posted. Congratulations to Mark Spang and Elfriede Sf Eberly for their wins today. We payed out top male and female players. Nate Lariviere, Mike Resnick, and Jeremy DeGregario won CTPs. Big thank you to everyone who came out and William Geibel for all his help. The tournament was sold out!!!!!

Buchmiller Super Thriller - PDGA B-Tier
The Buchmiller super Thriller (BST) is a Winthrop Gold USDGC-inspired course format! D.F. Buchmiller Park is normally a beginner friendly par 54 course. The course will be lengthened with some alternate tee and pin positions, two temp holes, 2 island greens and O.B. rope on every hole. The BST layout is a challenging par 62. A rules variance has been granted by the PDGA Tour Manager. All discs landing OB will be re-thrown from previous lie without a penalty. Exception! If a player fails to land on any of the two Island greens after three(3) attempts, the fourth shot must be from a designated Drop Zone! Long arms have no advantage here, shot makers do!
Check in from 7:30 to 8:45
All Amateur competitors will recieve a disc and Loud Mouth Disc Sports mini with entry.
Entry Fees: *All pro men $60.00 *Pro women $50.00 *Most Men Ams $45.00 *Women Am $40.00 *Jrs $25.00 Additional $10.00 fee to PDGA for all Non-PDGA members

We held our annual winter meeting on Sunday and made some progress on numerous fronts.
- First off, LAFS took a big step towards becoming a more organized club by creating a Club Council. The five-member Council will meet throughout the year to discuss and vote on club matters.The Council for 2014 will be made up of Bill Geibel, Linc Morgan, Jon McDowell, Jerry Dyson, and Kurt Demarra. We plan to have a method in place by the end of the year to choose representatives for 2015. Anyone who may like to serve next year should speak to a current council member so we can gauge the level of interest and put together a system for voting. The five Council members are meant to represent the Club, so we encourage any and all LAFS members to bring their concerns, comments, and questions to any of the five.
- Jon McDowell was named Treasurer. He will be responsible for club funds and will track all incoming and outgoing transactions. Any member who is interested in the financial side of things should feel free to speak with Jon. He will be able to tell you how much money we are bringing in and where it’s going. He hopes to increase transparency so that everyone knows where the money goes and all concerns are considered.
- Speaking of money…the club currently has $915 in the checking account and $400 in the ace pots (we have an ace pot for each of the four courses).
- Stats! We had 54 members in 2013, up from 46 in 2012. That’s a 17% increase! We also had a total of 950 non-unique players at all 2013 LAFS events. We already have 25 members signed up for this year.
- We spent a good amount of time discussing this growth and how to handle future growth. Kevin and Brian, who were both new to LAFS last year, offered us some insight on what it’s like for a new guy and ways we may be able to get better at welcoming the newcomers. We discussed using a charity event to raise awareness of the club and draw new people. We are also looking for volunteers who would be willing to take an active role at club events by playing in groups with newbies and acting as a kind of “guide” - explaining how we do things, offering tips on the rules and etiquette of organized play, and making them feel welcome.
- On the business side, we established guidelines for anyone who wishes to run events on LAFS courses. This includes, but is not limited to, Bill and Linc. Out of every entry fee, $1 will be set aside for the club. Half of that will go to the park, half to the club to pay for course maintenance. Additionally, $1 from every disc sold or given away as a prize will go to the club. Anyone wishing to hold an event in Lancaster can get the club’s support, but will have to comply with this rule. Speak to one of the Council members if you wish to host an event or series.
- The weekly schedule and all confirmed tournaments have been posted on this site - click on the appropriate link to see details.
There were a lot of other good conversations and there will be more to work on as time goes on. Thanks to everyone who came and offered their ideas and support!
LAFS Annual Club meeting will be held Sunday, February 23rd at The Fridge in Lancaster. Please be there by 7:45pm for an 8pm sharp start time. The Fridge (a LAFS sponsor) closes at 8pm but is allowing us to hold our meeting there after-hours. All members (or prospective members) are invited.
