Killer B gets it done! Takes 2nd in Adv Masters at AM Worlds!

Second in the World! Killer B!
What a week I had at the 2014 Amateur World Championships in Minneapolis! I still can't believe I came in second in Advanced Masters!

Thank you to everyone who supported me with likes, comments, and texts. It may sound cliche but it was great seeing the love from my friends in NEFA, the CSRA, and other parts of the country.

If you ever have a chance to go to Worlds or any other multi-day event, do it! The memories and friendships you make will last a lifetime!

Look for details on a small party at the store later this week! Old Dudes Rock!

Final 9, hole 2. Gained two strokes on this hole to tie it up for second.

Final 9, hole 7 I think. Made this putt to save my one-stroke lead.

My Final 9 competitors: Billy Ray, me, Bill, and the Champ Ken.

We are hiring at the Hive

We are looking for a friendly, trustworthy, and responsible person to work part-time at our disc golf shop. You should play disc golf but don't have to be an expert. Weekends are a must, plus 1-2 afternoons a week.

Who we are looking for
You will be a cashier, stock person, janitor, and disc golf advocate. You will love to help new players find just the right disc. You will be dependable, show up on time, have a good eye for detail, know how to use a computer, and help create a positive and welcoming environment for everyone who visits. You will be willing to learn about everything we carry and maybe even want to learn how to run leagues and tournaments the Killer B way.

You will be proactive and help keep the store and the areas around the store clean and tidy. That means you will clean bathrooms, take out the trash, sweep the store, sort recyclables, and be on the constant lookout for litter and cigarette butts.

Surprisingly, you will not play disc golf all day, practice your putting all day, or stare at your phone all day. This is a job. You will be able to keep busy when there are no customers and take pride in your store and the Hippo. You will be able to be given a project and complete it with minimal supervision.

You will be over 18, responsible, trustworthy, and friendly. You will have retail and/or customer service experience and be comfortable handling money. We are a very small business and finding the right person to grow with us is very important.

Email a short resume and cover letter to Killer B Headquarters. Grammar and proper use of the English language is important to us. Phone calls, texts, and Facebook messages will be ignored and deleted.

Thank you!

Seven days, six aces!

What a week of disc golf it was here at the Hippodrome at the end of June. Over the span of seven days, we had six aces, with three being first-career aces! I've never been around so many aces in such a short period of time!

Things are hot at the Hippo and Killer B!

  • Wed. June 25 - Jerry 'Swami' Swain aces Gobbler's Knob on Hogback with a Tern. His shrieks of joy are heard throughout North Augusta. It was his first ace ever.
  • Fri. June 27 - Dave Donaldson aces Treasure Island blues with a Roc3 during the pre-tournament Killer B Doubles. Due to some communication problems, he didn't get in the Ace pot! It was his first ace ever.
  • Sat. June 28 - John Marcus squeezes in a round with his wife after round 1 of the Spike Hyzer tournament and aces Snake Oil.
  • Sun. June 29 - During the Spike Hyzer tourney, Killer B John hits basket on Totem Pole, aces Lover's Lane red with a Challenger, and splashes out of Dead End!
  • Sun. June 29 - Killer B employee Aaron Doyle aces Dead End and splits the ace pot with John. John promptly fires him. 
  • Tue. July 1 - Zak Hoisington aces Old Glory red with a Firebird (I think) during league for his first ever ace.
