Escape the heat and head for the Border! 

Wednesday, July 7, 2010  by John Borelli

Leave the heat behind this weekend and head up to Montgomery, VT (just south of the Canadian border) and play in the two-day Run for the Border PDGA B-tier and NEFA points event.

TD Johnny Betts is ready to show off his new course at Cherry Hill and his beautiful Black Falls course, so pack your tent, swimsuit, and bag and head North for the weekend! To further entice you, he has added $4000 to the Pro purse and created a killer AM player pack! 

Run for the Border
July 10-11
PDGA B tier and NEFA points

Camping and swimming are available on site and other accommodations are only minutes from the course.

NEFA tears it up at AM Worlds! 

Saturday, July 3, 2010  by John Borelli

One word can describe NEFA's performance at this year's AM Worlds -- outstanding!

Congratulations to Nick Connell and Sandy Redd for tearing up the AM1 field and finishing tied for 8th and 21st, respectively. Nick shot a blazing 47 in the semi finals (tying teen superstar and eventual winner David Wiggins, Jr for the hot round) to finish -25 for the tournament, while Sandy finished an equally impressive -14. There were 194 golfers in their division. Amazing job, guys!

Advanced Master Bill Dunne also made the cut and finished a not-too-shabby 28th and +3 for the week. Way to go, Bill!

Several others of us played well enough to finish in the top half of our division and ended up cashing too. Nice.

> Complete results

Congrats to all who played and more importantly, finished with smiles on your faces. Next year, NEFA's going to rock Rochester!

(Thanks for letting me steal your Twitter photos, Nick. If anyone else has photos, please send them to me.)

NEFA updates at AM Worlds 

Tuesday, June 29, 2010  by John Borelli

Day 1 of AM Worlds in Ohio is over and NEFA is kicking butt! Sandy Redd is riding high atop his pool in the #1 spot, while Bill Dunne is tied for 4th in his pool. Nick Connell, Mike Sperow, and I also had a good day and are sitting at 7th, 11th, and 19th in our respective divisions/pools. Let's keep it going, guys!

> Current standings

A few of us are sharing our adventures through blogs, tweets, and posts to the NEFA board. Please help keep us going by sending or posting comments. We love reading them and knowing that NEFA is supporting us! Believe me, a simple "atta boy" really goes a long way, especially after your fifth round in three days!

Here's who's doing what:

> Main NEFA Worlds thread: Updates from all of us at Worlds

> Borelli Blog: Updates and photos from me

> Nick Connell: Twitter updates

This will probably be the last post here on NEFA until after Worlds. Time for some sleep.

Workday -- new course in Rindge, NH 

Saturday, June 26, 2010  by John Borelli

There's a new course being built by John Britton in Rindge, NH. There is a workday day scheduled for this Sunday at 10:30.

> More info

From John:

First work day -- Please show up and help if you can...I really need HELP from some local Disc Golfers right now to make this Rindge course actually be ready to open & play full-time later this Summer. Most of the work involves chain saws, pruning limbs & small trees, and removing downed Lumber off the fairways. Please bring some Tree Tools (plus Beer & whatever else) with you if it's possible...

The first 12 Holes are set up to go right now -- All Baskets are in place -- But there are several more trees to still be cut & relocated for "Opening Up" the fairways. Lots of variety, some creek holes, terrain changes, etc. Shooting to become the Best course in New Hampshire soon --> Bring It ON...!!!

The entire 18 hole course layout is pretty challenging and mostly laid out -- Just need to start cuttin' some more trees & such to make the last 6 DG holes become more open & realistic.(Starting soon after the first 12 holes are closer to their substantial completion -- Hopefully by late July).
