Details: Disc golf enthusiasts of all playing levels will soon converge in Brainerd - and all in the name of Scouting. The Boy Scouts of America's Pine Tree District, which covers the Brainerd Lakes Area, will be hosting a public disc golf fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at Brainerd's Lum Park.
The event on May 3, sponsored by disc golf manufacturer Discraft, will be divided into two distinct components: a disc golf tutorial from 10 to 11 a.m. and a tournament from noon to 4 p.m.
To help ease new players into this low-cost outdoor activity, those who register and pay online by the end of March will receive two Discraft discs popular with beginners.
The second half of the event, the tournament, will commence after an hour-long "free play" session around Lum Park's disc golf course. This hour was designed as both an opportunity for new players to test out everything they've learned and for tournament participants to warm up before they start competing for prizes.
Those who register for the tournament portion and pay online by the end of March will receive a special-edition Discraft disc that is only available at special events such as this.
