The 11th annual Hab/Rec disc golf tournament was held last weekend on a beautiful day at Milo McIver State Park in Estacada.

Long known as one of the final tournaments of what has become an extremely busy disc golf season, the Hab/Rec has become a favorite of many seasoned veterans as well as new up-and-coming players. I hear so many players tell the story of the Hab/Rec being the first tournament they ever played, including myself back in 2007. Year after year, Patrick Buckley has done a great job introducing new players to tournament play.

This year was no different and Patrick did another stellar job! With help from many supportive staff who come out yearly, Patrick ran another great event for all who played This year saw 150 players, playing in 9 different divisions. Everything moved along smoothly and included some of the best weather I can ever remember for the Hab/Rec--which usually has players donning their rain gear and huddling up for warmth at the end of the evening during the raffle and awards ceremony.
