DemoGrid Indoor Putting League, Week 5; Holiday Putting, Fall 2023

Christmas treeIt Was A Success!

The goals I had for the putting league were these:

  1. Have fun.
  2. All the players improve at putting.

The additional goal was to give away prizes to as many people as possible; sometimes completely randomly and sometimes for playing well.

We were successful!

Week 5 – Holiday Putting

Our sponsors
* Royce Racinowski’s Flying Disc Pro Shop
* The Greater Rochester Disc Golf Club.  

And donations for the Putting Challenge by
John Kelly, Jim Palmeri, Nick Stewart, DemoGrid 

… Allowed us to give away 17 prizes including 7 on Holiday Putting, week 5. 

Royce kicked in 14 more discs!
In addition to the initial sponsorship of a box of discs, for the last day of the league, Royce Racinowski added 14 more discs on Tuesday afternoon so the prize selection was top shelf for the final night.

Week 5 prize winners.

Flying Disc Pro Shop Chip Draw Disc Winner.
Royce Racinowski of The Flying Disc Pro Shop provided discs available for the chip draw winner each week.

  • Week 1: Ron Shamp won the chip draw and chose a yellow Innova Star Sidewinder.
  • Week 2: Kevin Schlegel won the chip draw and instead of choosing a disc, he chose a DemoGrid UV flashlight.
  • Week 3: Ken Crumpler won the chip draw and chose an orange Athena.
  • Week 4: Dan Palvina won the chip draw and chose a red Ape.

Besides the donations, everyone helped with the equipment transport, assembly, design of holes (with wonderfully creative layouts this year!), and tear down each night.

I could not have run this league without your help. Thank you!

I hope all of you had as much fun as I did.
