Here is my two cents about Lakewood weekly dubs,as of late,and other courses for that matter, by: Keith Lionetti.
If numbers dont start picking up in the next two weeks sadly a tradition that has been going on for well over 10 years will have to be put to rest.
I tried to come up with some truly unique features to Lakewood dubs.I think the birdie pot has been received well,and the CTP is always a great asset. I am pretty sure a good amount of you appreciate it,because some of the things that are offered and that were started at Lakewood are now being offered at other course weekly doubles in the area. Allot of you that have continually supported Lakewood Thursday night dubs will be sad about this and I truly am sorry as well.I have tried to do as much as possible to keep it going..even as far as passing out shirts with Lakewood dubs logo on it for the past two years,adding cash out of pocket,or from shop,offered special food items,discounted food items for all players, free coffee... I know that may not sound like much,but the bottom line is...if its not working and if your working too hard at something thats not improving then its time to stop. No sense in re inventing the wheel,if one course hosts allot of players than why try to have 3 courses with a handful on the same day? We all know for the past couple of years on Wed. that Lake Fenwick is the place to go. So why not harness that and expand on it if it works? Run them two days a week... start a sanctioned league...run a monthly series,add a bagtag to it.... if it works expand on it.
At first when carnation switched to Thursday nights some thoughts were "are there enough players?" Or "Will there be 10 people there 10 people at Lakewood and 10 people at Steilly on Thursdays?" Funny how those thoughts havn't changed much. Does it make more sense to have one course host 30+ and not compete with another? For the greater good,are we there yet? Are we seeing 30+ at all three courses on Thursdays, or any other day during the week that courses share dates with? My thoughts are no we are not.Especially every course switching to Saturdays in the fall and winter,who thought of that as a good idea? Are there more than enough recreational players than there are new players interested in playing doubles? Are we doing our part to offer new players a chance? Has the doubles just become more of a tradition than a thriving and growing activity? If its become a tradition for the sake of a tradition, thats a little too stagnant for any true growth..IMO. Is that the message as a disc golf community that I want to send out? The answer is NO it is not. Is it the message that you the players want to send out? I would hope the answer is no. So.. for the greater good,it only makes sense to do away with the dubs at Lakewood. Until there is a demand for it and or we as a disc golf community stop trying to compete with one another and work together towards a common goal. It pretty childish to brag about how many more players showed up to one course instead of another. Its disrespectful to even try to host on the same night. I thought for sure we are all ready to try and grow the sport,and create something positive for the area. Honestly I thought there were enough players,and interest to allow for mutilpe courses on the same day with great tournouts.. I was wrong. Its ok, I think once again that if something isn't working ,why continue to do it?
HUGE shouts out to all who have supported Lakewood Thursday night dubs. Sorry once again for the long time supporters. If it is meant to continue than I am sure something will be done about it. If not in the next couple of weeks,,, it sure has been pretty awesome while it lasted. CHEERS!!
2014 Format is as follows:We start with 20 cards first, the previous CTP winners from the week before(if they show) get to pick a card each to decide the CTP holes.If they don't show 2 random players pick 2 cards. Then poker chips are picked to determine who your partner is. At the end of the round there will be 5 cards randomly picked to determine the 5 BBC(blind birdie cash) holes. If you or your partner get all 5 holes birdied you get the BBC.If no one hits the BBC or the ACE it carries over.
Price is $7 or $10
$1 goes to POT
$1 goes to club
$5 goes to payout
$1 goes to POT
$1 goes to club
$5 goes to payout
$2 goes to two CTP holes
$1 goes to BBC

Great Job William on your ACE!!! One of the higher amounts this year. Cheers!
playing on the same card I was lucky enough to see this perfect shot.
Didn't even hit the chains, nuthin but basket..
A couple weeks back the ace was hit so the pot was pretty low. Bjorn earned himself 20,000 yen...
Great Job Bjorn..
as seen here he was pretty stoked to get $140 cold hard cash.
And in chainbanger fashion, the big check is pretty cool as well.
Cheers Doug! great job!!!
Here is something completely new and maybe a little overkill, but oh well.
Online prepay: Pay online for the week prior, or even up to 6 weeks in advance, if you wish. Then all you gotta do is just show up and throw down.
The format is random doubles and there are three holes that you have an opportunity to get CTP skrilla for.
The cost is $10 with a break down as such: $5 goes towards payout $1 goes to the ace pot $1 goes to the chainbangers disc golf club $3 goes to the three rotaing CTP holes. Now with the pro shop on site there have been some bonus hot dogs,candy bars, and the occasional Lakewood Dubs t-shirt given out as a token of appreciation to those who support the weekly dubs and sometimes get discouraged by not winning anything. We hope to expand on these incentive packages so that you feel the love that the club as well as the players feel for the participation.
14 players, 7 teams tonight.
no aces but an amazing 14 down shot by chainbanger team member Bjorn Pinney and Ming Vang.
Out of 18 players tonight there was tie for first place with a 7 down.
Winners decided to split it four ways instead of a play off.
Thanks everyone for the support, hope to see you next week.
I think a new course record was set with Mings 5 year old son and Ming as partners shooting a -5.
Also very happy to have WORLD CHAMP JIM MYERS show up for a round of dubs.
This was actually his second time showing up a year ago, almost to the date. Its always great to have a player of this caliber grace Lakewood with their presence. I was honored to share the pad and play a round wih Jim. He is a great guy and I was thankful to be one the same card. These days I'm just thankful to play 18 holes,but this was quite a treat. Thanks again Jim for stopping by and for hanging out and playing a round. Stop by anytime and we'll get you a tee time.
The game of golf,especially disc,is a game of integrity,honor & respect. Disc golf is also a priveledge for us all,and should not be taken for granted. This long running tradition needs to be passed on to all the new players so that it is understood and also passed on to the next generation. If you enjoy the sport and are as passionate about it as I am as well as a huge number of players are, please do your part and pass it on.
lucky 6 players this week.
no aces hit, but good times were had.. i know your jealous,and wondering who won.
Well you'll just have to show up next week to find out.

First Sunday Dubs results:
3 groups went out today
Ming Vang/ Steve Paulus shot and amazing -12
Ming also got all 3 CTP's.
Congratulations Bjorn Pinney on a great ACE #79 to date, and 2 new course records WOW!!!! what a day , see highlights below.
November 20th results...This day was a great day for a few people, but mainly Bjorn Pinney. Not only did he shoot an AMAZING round of disc golf for the 3rd Sunday Lakewood Acepot with a new course record -15 !!!!!! holy shit! no way......But after the singles round decided to also play in the weekly doubles. He teamed up with Ming and had Aaron Holley and Rob "Ace" Berg to compete against. Keep in mind they just got done playing a 27 hole format, for the singles. They all four played a great round,both doubles teams went into the 18th hole TIED,at beating the current weekly doubles low (-13) at an unheardof -15 SO to break the tie they needed to have a hole off. On hole #1 Bjorn nailed an ACE to not only make the new course history low (-17) but also win the match and make for his 79th ACE..... Truly a pretty bad ass day of events...
Needless to say we are very proud to have Bjorn join team chainbangerz recently. This is something we have been wanting for quite some time, and are very glad to have him as part of our team. Thanks Bjorn your an inspiration to allot of disc golfers out there.
Great Job today, and KEEP THE CHAINS BANGIN!!!!
