EMC wrap up 

Tuesday, May 4, 2010  by John Borelli

Submitted by TD Bill Stewart:

The fifth (in 6 years) Eastern Massachusetts Championships started like all the others: How will we fill this without 2X status? Co-TDs Mark Arnold and Bill Stewart went the only route they knew: give so much stuff away, that they'll be crawling back for more in 2011.

Well, another nail-biter, but the weather cooperated to get the field to 70 golfers (out of 76 max). The bounty was plentiful with discs, minis and lunch provided for both pros and ams.

There was a great logo this year (thank you PBR!) and combining with the 14th Amesbury Pines Open on Sunday, shirts were given to players who ponied up for both tournaments. May Madness Weekend 3 had 48 dual-tourney players this year!

10 Down sponsored a Ring of Fire at lunch and Innova, Discraft and Vibram supplied a slew of great CTP prizes.



In Pro Open, there was a logjam at the 53-54 level (19 hole, 58 par) with 6 of the 12-player field after one round. Joe Yaskis put up the hot pro round of the day with a 50 in the second to take it with a 104 (-12). Matt Deangelis (107) and last year's champ Brian Harrington (110) rounded out the top 3.

In AM 1, Team NASA local Jason Powers had a the hot first round (50) that put him 5 strokes ahead of the field and coasted to a first place 106. Mark "Nice Job On the Tee Shirts" Valis was second with a 109, and Greg Aucoin took 3rd with a 111.

Bill Dunne played Pro for the first time (Masters) and now may not be going back having carded a red-hot 110, putting him three strokes ahead of runner-up Doug DeSalvo.

Ed Hovestadt put a whipping on the Am masters with a 116 (8 strokes better than runner-up Mike Saimond), and Seth McQuade took a very tight AM 2 division with a 121. Paul Sullivan took down the Old Pros (Grand Masters) with a 120, with his first pro tournament win.

Pro Open winner Joe Yaskis took home $200 and a free entry to the North Shore Classic for the low round of the day. Joe also had the low score of May Madness weekend (total EMC + APO score, a 203) which also netted him a free entry to the Bennett Disc Farm Championships and a second handsome trophy disc for the wall. Brian Harrington was 2nd for the May Madness overall score (205), and Steve Solbo was 3rd with a 210.

TDs H.A. and Stewie wish to thank all the players for a great time, and all of team NASA for help in pulling off another successful EMC. We have one request for 2011: "Sign up early and help us fill the tourney!"

May Madness starts this weekend! 

Wednesday, April 28, 2010  by John Borelli

May Madness is back for its third year at Pye Brook Park and Amesbury Town Park as they play host to the Eastern MA Championships (EMC) and Amesbury Pines Open (APO) this weekend. The two courses are less than 15 miles apart and together make for a great weekend of competition.



As usual, TDs Bill Stewart and Mark Arnold will be serving up some Lady Pye at Saturday's EMC in Topsfield, MA. Pyebrook is one of the few open (and often windy) courses in the area where you can let it rip on most of the holes.

Veteran TD Dan Ouellet has handed over the APO reigns to first-time TD John Mucciarone this year. Amesbury is one of the oldest courses in New England and was recently damaged by the nasty wind and snow storms that hit us in February. According to John, though, the course is looking great with a new basket on 15, spruced up tee pads, and nice new Green Jackets to give to the winners.

A few spots are still available in these two fun tournaments. Don't miss out!

Check your mailbox. NEFA bagtags on their way! 

Monday, April 26, 2010  by John Borelli

After a few technical difficulties, the new NEFA member bagtags are ready and on their way to disc golf bags around New England. They've gone out in a few batches, so keep an eye out for yours. They're also sporting a new design, so we hope they were worth the wait.



Thank you NEFA volunteers Steve Hartwell and Dave McHale for working out the kinks and getting the tags out.

TIP: The tags are going to take a beating hanging from your bag, so you may want to wrap a few pieces of clear packing tape around yours to give it a little extra protection from the elements.

If you'd like one of your own tags and want to help support disc golf in New England, then please join NEFA today!
