Black & White was founded in November 2010 by two members, Randy Gallagher II & Tim Burton. Originally both players lived in the Kalamazoo area and played with a local club regularly until Tim moved to the east side of Michigan. At that point wanting to keep the rivalry and golfing alive Black & White Interactive was brought into existence. Since the beginning the club has seen members come and go but overall it has grown slowly over time creating a quality disc golf community rather than one of quantity, one might refer to it as a family more so than a community. We don't stop at disc golf but like to contribute in positive ways to each of our lives.
In addition to golfing we also specialize in dying custom discs with simple designs to even the most complex designs. Over time we have worked to perfect the process and offer a great piece of functional art at a decent price. All designs can be sent over for consideration, just use the EmailBW link.
Rolling Hills in Ypsilanti marked the end to Bracket #1. Two matches were played and very close matches for both.
First Place Match:
Mike vs. Tyler C
3rd Place Match:
Randy G vs. Tim Burton
In the first place match Mike W turned out the lights a little bit early making the match dormie and the third place match dragged on for a couple of extra holes until Tim B was able to finish the job on hole 18.
The fifth place match is still out will be finished at a later date.
Thank you to those that came out for a round Saturday and the thoughts and well wishes for PJ Jean. It meant a lot to us and thank you for the support.
Tim B launched the finalflight to honor PJ’s wicked forehand shot. We watched that skill develop over time and eventually surpass our best of forehands. PJ’s skill will be deeply missed as it was second to none. He would have been with the club 4+ years now and was lost far too soon. We wish you the best and hope to see you again.
Family and friends , it is with a heavy heart that we announce to you all that we have lost one of our little brothers this week. PJ Jean is no longer with us. PJ was a young yet very talented member of the crew, talented beyond belief in areas that far surpassed even the top of our ranks.
PJ was well known for his passion of the sport, “pirate” like antics and laser cannon of a forehand. Yes, laser cannon. PJ could make any disc soar with ease with the accuracy of a laser and velocity of a cannon. Our band of brothers have watched him grow over the years and we will feel the sting of his loss for many years to come.
“Right?! PJ has got an amazing forehand shot. I’m a little bit jealous.” -Tim Burton
PJ has traveled many a mile with us and conquered many courses through our disc golf adventures and will continue to as he will be forever in our thoughts. We love you little brother.
Surviving PJ is his father Jim Jean. Jimmy is an longstanding member of our ranks and we should remember him as well in this time. Jimmy always lightens the mood and brings the fun to each of our events, lets help him up in this time of sorrow as he has helped us in our times of need.
In the spring time please make some time for the PJ Jean Memorial Tournament. Black & White intends on helping in the success of this family event held by a collection of Michigan disc golf clubs. More details to come.
