Been there, done that my friend. Have been following this thread for months as a casual observer. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know that there is another dysfunctional situation with great disc golf out there.

Nothing is set in stone but I can tell you guys what has been discussed. As far as baskets are concerned, the idea was to represent the major equipment makers in one place as a showcase for their style of basket. We have talked about adding a second basket to most holes.Chestnut may be sacrificed for a campground and festival grounds. We have talked about a pitch and putt practice course to replace Chestnut. Yes, there will be festivals but no one will be allowed to camp on any of the courses. We talked about a modern campground with water and electric hookups, a dump station, monthly and seasonal sites, a canteen with snacks and drinks, maybe a lounge with a limited bar type menu (pizza, burgers etc.). We talked about half pipes and tube runs, xc ski trails, a groomed winter dg course. And we talked about maybe someday getting a liquor license, which probably has some of you drooling right now lol.

Some of this stuff can be done right away, some will take years to complete, some plans will be abandoned. Nothing quite like this has been done before, and I'm sure we'll stumble and fall a few times, and sacrifices will have to be made. It's gonna be hard work but we think it's worth the effort, and input from the dg community will be essential. I think everyone knows it's now or never for HH.

While it's an interesting idea to have multiple manufactures represented, I would think you could get a significant quantity discount if you went with just one. This would also be more conducive to holding large top tier tournaments (if I were a pro I wouldn't want to be playing a different Target each round. Mach Xs would get my vote, followed by veterans and then discatchers.

More marketing benefit when representing multiple manufacturers on the site than putting all eggs in one basket even if those eggs might be somewhat cheaper. For example, when we ran Pro Worlds, each course had a manufacturer sponsor. It's even more important now with so many more Championship target manufacturers with pro teams than 2004 when the baskets were first acquired. If the revival plan is seen as solid, you may even see some manufacturers lobbying HBH with very attractive deals to place their targets on the hill. Note that manufacturers donated the baskets for building the multiple course complex at the International Disc Golf Center in Georgia.

This is exactly what we had in mind, having each course sponsored by a different manufacturer. If this project draws the attention I think it will, it could be a boon to all dg companies who are willing to get involved. And I do know that an effort will be made to reimburse everyone who was originally screwed by JJ in the first place. Again, no promises at this time, but we will strive to do our best.

What about a set of bullseye targets for this pitch and putt like the one at Pyramids?

How much traffic did these courses get at their peak?

I was just looking at the Big Top Chautauqua lineup from last year, lots of national talent performing up there all summer long. If Highbridge was set up for music festivals with a proper stage, it shouldn't be too hard convincing some of those artists to take a side gig at HH maybe once a month on top of any festivals we may have.
