We are doing 2 weeks again this year June and July. Amazing what parents will pay to get rid of their kids for 4 hrs for a week :-). I hope this turns into more local courses.
I asked them to add Bailey Rd (nevin and bradford too) to the list of courses. Bailey should be the destination for the northern beginners.

I also asked them to remove Veterans and to use spell check.

Back in the mid 90s I was asked to spend one week teaching 'Frisbee' sport to a summer sports camp in Union, SC. We taught DDC, Ultimate, Discathon, Self Caught Flight, Accuracy, Distance and Disc Golf. I had 6 hours a day for one week.

I've thought about getting with my local park & rec to do this but I know that I'd be the lead person and don't know if I can afford the time. I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing more.

I played in the 16-18 division this morning. It went really well. I kinda regret not signing up for advanced, though...

My daughter played in this league at Reedy Creek this morning. She absolutely loved it and played really well for her first time ever playing all her shots and playing all 18 holes. She can't wait till next week! Props to Mecklenburg Parks and Rec and much thanks to Mark aka Skinnylimbs for the extra time he spent teaching her after the round. She will be much improved next week.

This will grow our sport in a positive way!

Elon had about 16-18 total kids show up I think -- with my daughter being the only girl. I think there were more registered but with some no-shows.

I think this was a great beginning for the park's youth league. I hope this will grow to where we have the need for more beginner courses. That could push the park department to let us put more beginner courses in town.
