Happy New Year, everyone.

Now here is the answer to a question no one specifically asked: our first two projects of 2014 will be at Lake Abilene -- the first Texas state park to get a championship course -- and in Carrollton, Georgia. The course at what's known as the "Hobbs Farm Property" will be our first municipal course in beautiful Georgia.

Thanks,
John

Through your experience (and I'm not 100 percent sure you have dealt with many different state parks) what is your take on how exactly to sell a course in a state park? Does it vary from state to state? Do local clubs plant the initial seed? Visitors Bureaus? Local residents? What works?........Thanks

John,

Would you be able to comment on your thoughts about forest mitigation in an extremely fire prone area, and if its worth the sacrifice to the course. Here's a video resembling, almost to the T, the course.

Now a quick commercial announcement:

It's short notice, but we have about 250 GStar Destroyers available as a fundraiser for the 2014 PDGA Amateur World Doubles championships.

We made them available yesterday to players registered for the tournament, and we sold about 200 in a few hours. We are now making the remainder available to YOU. They won't last long.

GStar is Innova's new Star blend that adds extra grip and flexibility to the famous Star plastic. All the profits from this sale will go directly into the event. The discs are $18 each plus shipping and handling. Texas and Kansas residents will also have to pay sales tax.

The sale will open at 3:00 Central today (Sunday) . Once they're gone, they're gone.

Here is the link: http://www.circularproductions.com/w...tar_destroyer/ You can see the information now. If you refresh the page at 3:00, you'll be able to order.

Thanks for your support, thanks to Innova for making this offer possible, and thanks to Discs Unlimited for fulfillment help. Happy shopping.

http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums...d.php?t=102032 your take on this situation? You design better and safer courses than this obviously, but it's still something you have to consider. Do you think the course should be pulled, redesigned or what?

Obviously, this is very sad to hear. I'm not going to tell anyone what they should do with their course, and it would not be wise for me to comment on an ongoing trail. You can see from the 12th post in that thread that several reviewers felt that the course had problems. At this point, I just hope that, assuming the lawyer is giving us an accurate assessment of the situation, this woman will eventually find a way to regain her sight.
