How the Throwdown was thrown

Posted by Grant on 4/7/2010 to Disc Golf Courses

Last Saturday, 85 players met at Boerne City Lake Park for the 2nd Annual Hill Country Throwdown in Boerne, TX.  This was the 2nd event in the Alamo Disc Series, hosted by the San Antonio Disc Club and sponsored by Disc Golf Station.  A gorgeous day, clean fairways, 9 killer temp holes, triathletes, casual lake-goers, and a fair amount of wind (okay a lot of wind) gives you an idea of the gameplay.  Aside from that, EZs graciously donated burgers for the players as part of the players pack.  Local Ernie “One Shot” held down the grill (and the smack talking) all day.  Complete with CTP, ring of fire, and Kan Jam, the fun factor for the tournament was really high.

Jayson Houston came out with top honors in Open, besting Pete Lopez, Nick Rowton, and Joe Rotan who came in a three-way tie for 2nd place.  Houston also moves into 1st place in the series point totals.  Sherman Griffin won the Advanced Men after a short playoff with Marcos Castillo although Castillo maintained a solid lead in the point totals.  Other winners include Charlie Chittum (Intermediate Men), Mike Morales (Recreational Men), and Andi Griffin (Recreational Women).

We had a flymart set up selling some new gear just in from Gateway Disc Sports.  Check back on our site soon as we will have lots of Gateway products up for you to get your paws on.  All in all the day was a blast.  Hey all you whities out there, put on some sun screen!!!!  Unless you wanna be a lobster like me.

A great day of competitive disc golf was made complete at Chachos in San Antonio.  The Disc Golf Station Crew devoured a plate of Monster Kong Nachos over a few beverages.  The pictures are from a phone and do no justice to the horrific amount of food that we consumed.
