So when the boys up at the Landfill posted about their Vibram Birdie Bash they also had this Z Tier listed as happening this month. It was a doubles tourney fundraiser for the Harford County Humane Society in memory of one of their locals Tyler who died last year. I didn’t know Tyler but I’m a big animal lover so I figured I’d scrounge up a partner and mosey up for this tourney. I was trying to figure out who to partner with when the idea of El Tie Dye popped into my head. He’s the King of Charity Bowls, so I figured he wouldn’t pass up the chance to participate in this fundraiser. I send him a PM. He replies with:
Let me check with my wife.
The next day I get:
During the days prior to the tourney the Landfill club is promoting the tourney on the local message board, and one day post that they got a big contribution from a type of company you don’t usually find sponsoring a disc tourney:
“Wanted to give a shout out to our major sponsor for Let’s Throw for Tyler Together, Evans Funeral Chapel. In the unfortunate time you may need their services, please give them a visit. Wonderful people to deal with and a big supporter of this event and cause.”
On Thursday and Friday El Tie Dye and I haggle out our getting to the Landfill. El Tie Dye decides to drive to my place and ride up with me. He mentions that he needs to be at the Rockville Unitarian Church by 5:30 since he is a youth group leader there and the kids are having a fundraiser he needs to help oversee. Apparently they are serving mocktails and having some type of casino night.
We decide to arrive a little stupid early since the Landfill locals have posted that in the event the course parking area fills there will be overflow parking nearby, and they will be running a shuttle. Since El Tie Dye is on the clock we decide to be sure to get into the regular parking lot. The locals are expecting a lot of spectators and beginners at this event.
