Spring 2015 Tournament Results
Former tournament champs Brenden Hardy and Raymond Schreffler came back on Sunday for another win with a 52, earning them the $100 top prize donated by Dugan Funeral Home & Crematory.
Brad and Greg Lescalleet, with multiple past victories of their own, took second place this time with a 53, and took home a card good for a large pizza "any way" and a 2-liter soda from Shippensburg Pizza Hut, along with $15 in gift certificates from our new sponsor, Cabin on King.
Brad Lescalleet also nabbed another large pizza and 2-liter from Shippensburg Pizza Hut for his win in the accuracy contest, as did Brenden Hardy, for his win in the distance contest.
We thank all 20 participants for joining us for the afternoon in Shippensburg Township Park, and hope to see everyone back in the fall.

There’s no better way to welcome the new year than having fun with friends and family. That’s why downtown Shippensburg will be the site of Drop the Anchor festivities again Dec. 31.
The celebration, now in its 15th year, begins at 8 p.m. on King Street between Penn and Fayette. Phantom Shadow will provide entertainment, including a DJ and inflatables for the youngsters. A performance by White Like Fire and big screen TV will also be part of the event, along with carriage rides by Cromer Carriages.
Fun continues until the anchor is dropped and 2015 is officially welcomed at midnight. Cumberland Valley Hose Company has the task of raising and dropping the anchor. The anchor was created by Steve Dolbin, local artist and Shippensburg University faculty member. Sponsors for this year’s holiday tradition include the Rotary Club of Shippensburg, Minnequa Social Club, Hub City Club, Orrstown Bank, Signs Signs, Dr. Gary Davis Family Dentistry, and Knute’s Pub and Grill.
There is no admission charge and hats and noisemakers will be distributed to celebrate the arrival of the New Year.
Drop the Anchor was developed by Shippensburg’s Rotary Club with community partners in 2000 to provide a safe, family oriented celebration for New Year’s Eve.

The Rotary Club of Shippensburg congratulates the winners of the Fall 2014 Shippensburg Community Disc Golf Tournament held Sunday, October 26.
Two teams tied for first place, splitting the $100 first place prize, sponsored by Dugan Funeral Home and Crematory, and the $50 second place prize, sponsored by Modern Artisan Consulting.
Father and son team Greg and Brad Lescalleet, who took first prize a year ago and again last April, shared this event's prizes with rival team Glen Miller and Chris Gwillim. Both teams scored a 54 on two rounds of the 9-hole Papa Jack's Disc Golf Course, in Shippensburg Township Park. The first round was played "best toss," where the play advances from the best position after both teammates throw. The second round was played "alternate toss" where teammates take alternate turns throwing throughout the course.
The accuracy contest was won by Brett Boyd, and the distance contest was won by Brad Lescalleet, who threw for a new tournament record. Shippensburg Pizza Hut provided a prize of a large pizza and 2-liter soda for the winners of both of these contests.
The Shippensburg Rotary Community Disc Golf Tournament is held semi-annually in April and October, and is open to players of all skill levels.
