Ladies and gentlemen, I am disappointed to say that between work and COVID, and their far-reaching consequential effects on my time, I will not be hosting a sanctioned Thanksgiving Throwdown this year in Danville. It has simply been too much to plan this fall, and for that, I apologize to all of you who have supported the event and my efforts in the past. I look forward to picking the mantle back up in 2021 for TT7: The Course Awakens (only a working title).

That being said, I *WILL* be home in Danville for Thanksgiving week, and would be delighted to throw with anyone during the week or on that Friday. Keep in touch, keep throwing, and if I don't see you this coming Black Friday or at another tournament elsewhere, I will see you on Friday, November 26, 2021!

All amateur payouts have been sent to D-Town Disc Golf and vouchers/redemption codes have been sent out via email. Check your junk mail if you don't see your payout message, and contact me if you don't receive anything. Remember that you can hold on to your balance - it doesn't expire! If you continue to participate in Danville Disc Golf events, you can combine your various payouts and get something awesome!

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks to Chris Dahm and Kickback Jack's for his support of the Black Friday Throwdown! Cash sponsorship, appetizer vouchers, and players pack bags. Thank you, sir!

All sponsors will be recognized Friday at the event, but disc golf events benefit greatly from on the generosity of local businesses, and many of us love KBJ!

The amateur side of Black Friday: Thanksgiving Throwdown IV is full. That is, I have no more players packs available. I had to order them weeks ago, and I only ordered 50.

I encourage any amateur players still interested in playing to contact me. You are still welcome to play, and I may be able to put together an informal players pack for you, or to get you something at a later date. I won't turn anyone away if I can make it work. Please be in touch.

Players packs waiting to be assembled!

The Black Friday custom discs came out AMAZING! Thank you to Discraft for their awesome work and great turnaround time with this order. Bob and the gang in Wixom are the best! Can't wait for Friday! There are still spaces available, but I only got 50 amateur players packs. Hurry up and preregister!

Tee assignments for Black Friday:

Round 1:
All divisions play all white (short) tees. Get your birdies now.

Round 2:
Pro and Advanced play all blue (long) tees with alternate long basket locations on holes 4, 12, and 15.
All other divisions play all white (short) tees except blue (long) on holes 2, 6, and 18, and playing from the white (short) tees to the three alternate basket locations on 4, 12, and 15.

These assignments will be color-coded on your scorecards. The alternate long baskets will be out during the entire day so you can be attentive to their locations.

Changes may be made the day of the event to accommodate daylight and interest level by division. For example, last year, I think the Advanced Grandmasters and Recreational divisions played all white tees in round 2.

Let us know if you have questions.

Tell your friends! And we need professionals! Come on, Masters guys - if nobody else signs up, I have to obey my own rules and move Mike DeCellis up to Open, because there aren't 4 people in his division. Sign up today!

Ballou Park Disc Golf Course #2 - White Tees

If you are playing the course blind for Black Friday, don't worry! It's pretty straightforward, yet heavily wooded in some places. There are two good videos showing locals playing the course from the white tees (Round 1 for all divisions), and the blue tees (included in Round 2 for Pro and Advanced divisions).

2. Part I of the players pack is on the way... Jawbreaker Challenger SS's and Challenger OS's!
3. Stay tuned for more updates! This is a one-day B-Tier! At least $500 added cash! Players packs are going to have a great value! Sign up, and spread the word!

I will repeat the process for every additional 10 registrants!

Come on, everybody... THROW DOWN!

10/05/2017

We're on! The fourth installment of the Thanksgiving Throwdown has been sanctioned! Stay tuned for more details, but be ready... One-day B-Tier event, so at least $500 in added cash with more in the wind. Great players pack being put together. Sweet trophies. You'll want to be there! Black Friday, November 24th!

09/02/2017

Kevin and I have been working on the details for this year's Black Friday Throwdown event. Sponsorships for added cash are coming through, sweet players packs are being determined, and registration will open in the near future. We'd love some help for the event, with course work days, players pack assembly, and other details beforehand, and scoring and side games on tourney day. Let us know if you're interested, and stay tuned!

05/31/2017

Kevin Tyburski and I have been talking about this year's Throwdown. We want your thoughts...

1. Still Friday.
2. Maybe a one day B-Tier event instead.
3. Maybe trophy only for amateurs with a high-value players pack instead (like, 2X your entry fee).

11/23/2016

Tee assignments!

First round:
All divisions play white/short tees.

Second round:
All Pro divisions and Advanced Men play all blue/long tees, including 1 and 15 alternate basket locations.
All other divisions play white tees again, but with 1 (alternate basket), 2, 9, 12, 15 (alternate basket), 18 from blue tees.

The swag is here! Custom-stamped Z Glo Buzzzes for the amateur players packs. Bazinga.

Thanks to everyone who has recently expressed interest in the Throwdown! In order to try to increase entries as we compete with the DUO in Cary, this year's event is tentatively scheduled for FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2016. Disc golf on black Friday; what could be better?

We're expecting to have Discraft sponsor again, but may also have a Trilogy vendor to help with additional payout options. Stay tuned, and let us know if you have questions!

11/29/2015

Thanks to the 31 people that came out and enjoyed the best late November disc golf weather I can ever remember. Scores are posted (at http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/22226), if you want to check your unofficial round ratings!

11/27/2015

We've done the Thanksgiving. We've eaten the turkey and the trimmings. We've napped while watching football. We've given thanks for our blessings.

Now let's Throwdown! T-minus 36 hours until we get to the park to start setting up. Be there.

11/24/2015

Ballou Park DGC #2 looks great. A few leaves in some places, a little mud or swampy grass in others, and leaf piles behind the 17 white tee, but looking good for Saturday. Getting ready for a great day!

A few more tidbits!

1. Strong probability of a food truck on site to help with lunch travel! Bam.

2. A 44-lb. package was shipped from Discraft today! Tournament-stamped discs and other swag should be here on Monday! BAM!

3. Sponsor a hole for $20! Promote yourself or your business and help contribute to charity. 50% of cash sponsorships go to pro cash, 50% to charity. BOOM!

4. Creative sponsorship available! $10 to sponsor anything on course: your favorite tree that you always hit, that hole in the ground that sprained your ankle, that general location you lost your disc. Contact us with your offers! OH YEAH!

5. 9 days left until the tourney. A 9-under round from the white tees (46) is approximately 1000-rated!!

$100 ADDED PRO CASH. It's not much, but every little bit counts! Thank you to Kevin Tyburski for his fundraising efforts. Hope more will be coming!
