Board of Directors Update
Maria Montano has had to step down as PFDS President, we appreciate Maria's service and what she has done for the club and hope to see her at all the local event. Last night, August 3rd, 2016, the board has motioned that for the remainder of Maria's tenure, to have Pat Graziani fill the open Presidents chair on the board.
Pat Graziani is a great fit for this position as he has shown his willingness to help make this club better. He has recently run the PFDO - Pro side, Double Dahn events, Winter is Coming, as well as volunteered countless hours doing course maintenance at all the courses, especially Knob Hill last year prior to the PDGA World Championships. So everyone give Pat a huge welcome as the new President of the PFDS!

Ironwood Open Recap
Our local disc golf picture/video man extraordinaire Brian Keenan pieced together some action from the final round at slippery rock university from this year's Ironwood Open. Congrats to the winners of all divisions and watch this awesome video to find out who won this battle! We had 101 competitors come out this past weekend and brave the elements from wind and rain to sleet to snow!
Thanks to North Country Brewery, Dynamic Discs, and Grip it and Rip It for being sponsors of this year's event!
