Registration by September 13th – Text Steve Scheuring at (734) 660-0304 with the following information (Of course we will accept late sign up but early registration will assist with set up!):

  • Name of Participant (please send a separate text with each participant)
  • Best guess of your bagger level based on the following guidelines
  • 1 Bagger – This player has limited to no experience with the game. There is little control over where the bag is going, and the bag often misses the board.
  • 2 Bagger – This player has a feel for the distance needed to toss the bag but is erratic in getting the bag to consistently hit and stay on the board. Typically, this level of player is in the beginning stages of developing a consistent throwing motion that can be repeated.
  • 3 Bagger – This player has started to develop some consistency when tossing the bag. They have a basic understanding of game strategy but have yet to master all the different types of throws including the airmail shot needed to excel and compete at the higher levels.
  • 4 Bagger – This player fully understands game strategy but may struggle with consistency. At times, this player looks like they can beat anyone, but then in a subsequent game (or frame) can struggle.
  • Premier – This player can and wants to compete against anyone. This player can execute sliding the bag and airmailing the bag as needed. Player fully understands game strategy and likely plays and practices on a regular basis.

Donation will be accepted at the park prior to the beginning of this fun filled event.

Side games will be available for additional donations.

Additional donations are welcome and encouraged!

Fall Clean-up at the Park – November 2nd @ 11:00am

The JAC will be hosting a Fall Clean-up at our park access to prepare the park for this winter. Items we are hoping to accomplish are as follows:

  1. Dock removal
  2. Picnic table stacking
  3. Moving park assets to the Porta-potty enclosure
  4. Leaf and stick removal

If you have pontoon boat in a slip or a boat/kayak/float-able on the boat rack please remove it asap. This year it is especially important to remove your belongings because a new seawall is in the works to be installed. During construction the shoreline needs to be fully accessable and the boat rack will be moved. Everything on it must be removed before shoreline repair can happen. This is what is currently on the rack.

Thank you!
