Grow the Sport 2015

I really get annoyed by people always saying "grow the sport". Especially when they are allergic to physical labor. Post pics of how you actually grew the sport, not just talked about it.

Today I removed many stumps from our local disc golf course.

There are kinds of ways "to grow the sport," that don't necessarily involve physical labor. I am grateful for any work anyone does for the betterment of of our game.

Do whatever you can to prevent growth....discourage as many people as you can from playing.....tournaments fill too fast as it is.

You will have to start a new thread for the other stuff. This is a thread for physical labor only.

I like your thinking. Weekday, cold weather, course work; I had the whole damn course to myself. It was great!

Absolutely.

Which is not to dismiss the wonderful folks who do bend their backs for course maintenance and improvement.

Let's just not forget the TDs, and folks who negotiate with parks departments, and who give demonstrations at elementary schools, and run clubs, and do all the behind-the-scenes stuff.

Come visit sometimes. We're a day's drive away and, for half of the year, about 20 degrees warmer.
