I just got a new DiscCatcher pro permanent basket for Francis Scott Key :)

I know this means nothing in the world of disc golf, but I am super excited.

My county sent out an email that they had some money left in their budget in a special account designated for "expensive physical education equipment" and the first person to request for something over $500 gets it.

I just happen to have a catalog infront of me that sold DiscCatcher Pros for $599.99 (I know that is expensive, but remember it HAD to be over $500)
I had the paperwork filled out in under 3 minutes and waited.
15 minutes later I got an email saying Congratulations your request for a new DiscCatcher in Ground Permanent basket has been approved!

We also got a grant and will be buying 3 DGA Mach2s. We will have quite a mix match course once we add those to the current old baskets we have.

Nice work rube. It's nice to hear that your job keeps getting easier for you to introduce youngsters to the game.

Do you have a way or are you interested in installing a portable basket and making it more permanent?

The course is permanent and has been for about a year.
There are currently 3 holes each with 3 pads. There are also 2 baskets for holes 1 and 2, we are working on finding and installing a second location for basket 3.

We have 5 baskets up at all times. the property does not lend itself to producing a high caliber course. I have 3 more baskets, but I am not sure if they will go up at this location or if we will start another tiny school course. This is a small fun course for the kids, a nice place for shooting for aces and practicing your approaches. Leave the drivers in the car.

Congrats and good work! I'm local to DC, as well, and love hearing about improvements to the area's disc golf courses. Keep us posted on progress!

Are there any new courses in the works for the DC/Baltimore area?

Great!!! So another public entity paid too much for something. Brilliant.

But congrats on getting a basket at least.
