Bluebell Woods at ReBoot Disc Golf Course is a challenging round in the best conditions, we didn't really need driving rain in 38mph winds but that is exactly what 20 hearty souls had to contend with in the first round of this years Rubber Biscuit. But like most days in Scotland we experienced a "summer event" at just the right point in our day and it was pleasant conditions for the last few holes of the second round and during our awards ceremony.
The most impressive performances were made by two of our Junior competitors Cole H. and Abel C. who bravely played two rounds on the Red Course in worst of the days weather. Cole then joined three more Jr players in the second round of action which earned him the Novice trophy. All our junior players received a disc, mini marker and medal of participation which they can use as a token of membership to play on 9 participating disc private disc golf courses. Thanks again to our volunteers for chaperoning the Junior players through the rain.
During lunch we hosted the "chip for rubber" which saw all the participants take 3 attempts at chipping a golf ball into a disc laying upside down. This was no ordinary disc, it was a 2009 Vibram Open Summit, A collectors item in certain circles. On his first attempt Keith A. chipped the ball straight in and took the prize.
Thanks again to the players and people who assisted in this years event. We hope to see everyone at The Hermitage on October 3rd for the Doubles tournament. Also there is a Vibram Birdie Bash at Ace Adventures on 27th September.
