Arrow World Record! Help us and the Parks department w/ costs and improvement in Illinois

Since starting the sport over 2 years ago, I've been amazed by everyone I've met. I was so inspired that I joined up with some other golfers and we've had a club going for almost a year now. Our club focuses on improving parks, working on new disc golf course installations, and giving back to the disc golf community. The world record part?

We are making an attempt at a Guinness World Record "Most disc golf holes played in 24 hours"! We are hoping to increase awareness of the sport, help the local parks department, and get more people interested. We are doing more than just the attempt, we have disc golf education booths setup with a huge list of volunteers. To help our club with it's objective of spreading the sport as well as the Coloma Park District and costs associated with the attempt, please see our indiegogo link below, it's a short video describing a little about us.

Thanks for your time, may the course be with you! (And no more snow)

DISC GOLF!!

Thank you for viewing. Please share our indiegogo link to support our mission. We truly believe we will get out there and establish a new record to be beat. We want people to take notice of the sport and wonderful community that comes with it. We feel the exposure can offer an opportunity to raise financial support for Coloma Township Parks Dept and for park improvements and growth of the sport in our local area of Chicago.

Or...
Joe could move his to one day before Cody's. That way he'll stay in the record book longer... for Shortest stint as a World's Record Holder.

I had heard about this! It's a great feat. We are doing in at Nim's Park in Rock Falls, IL. It's listed here, so you can check it out. What course are you attempting at? It's a big feat, and both of us should raise some awareness around the sport!

DISC GOLF!!

It will be a great time and I personally am looking forward to it along with Joe. I am sure Cody will do great and will possibly take down what ever record we are lucky enough to post. Mike Sale already has a very impressive record laid out that will be insanely tough for anyone to beat. I think the most important thing is we raise awareness and do this great sport justice by showing people why it is we care so much to even do something like this in the first place. Our old asses are going to give it hell!

LOL 1978, that is hilarious. It would sure be fun and motivating to do that. It took almost a year of planning for us to get permission from town, plan events, etc, so we couldn't move ours even if we wanted to.
