2018 Frolf Classic

September 19, 2018 marked the 5th annual GCA Frolf Classic.  As has been the case too often this autumn, rain was in the forecast.  But that didn’t deter 70 plus players from taking on the beautifully maintained Disc Golf course at Estabrook Park.  Rain was kept at bay, as were the mosquitos, with the help of some nicely scented insect repellent.  After players selected their favorite color disc, grabbed a beverage, compliments of Town Bank, they teed off for some friendly competition.
The returning champions from Halquist Stone chipped away at the course all afternoon, but couldn’t hold off the team from Advanced Disposal, who picked up the win with a score of 47.
As players wrapped up their round, a brief rain shower ushered them inside the tent just in time to enjoy a spread of Rupena’s chicken and bbq pork, sponsored by K. Singh Engineering.
Earning special recognition as the awards ceremony began, were the 6 players who have attended all 5 Frolf outings.  (Chris Adams, Bob Gross, Jeff Loss, Jerry Merz, Erv Stern, and Aaron Winkler).

Other award winners were:

Longest Drive: Joe Keckiesen, Johnson Controls
Closest to Pin: Joe Haider, The Redmond Company.
Most Smiles: Jimmy Keiper

We thank all our sponsors and the wonderful people who took time from their busy schedules to enjoy an afternoon with GCA to hone their disc golf skills and build a few new contacts.
Be sure to save the date for our event next year, September 18, 2019.
