It will be for runnin' through the mud...not with vehicles.

The property that is owned by the city is more than 50 acres. The course sits on 12 of those so it doesn't make sense.

I thought about protesting those plans but I would be walking a fine line. The city has given me sponsorship to events and has awarded me grants to expand the sport to the tune of close to $15,000 over the past four or five years. I want to keep that money coming un every year.

My biggest issue is with all the other undeveloped land...the run should go through that area. One the plus side we might get access to part of the undeveloped property. Its thick woods and could cause problems with getting a couse built and installed in those thick woods.

Ah, this story is all-too-familiar with parks departments. Not necessarily a mud run---that may be a first---but the respect the courses get.

They're pulling out trees so people can run in mud?

Sounds like typical ****ting all over disc golf. What a horrible reason.

Have you asked why they chose this area? Go speak with the parks department and present them with an alternative. Explain how this will adversely affect the course, bring up safety issues, etc. Show them all the negative results and then present them with an alternative. When I say present an alternative, I am saying to design a mud run in a different location.

Be proactive!

I would bring up the soil erosion issue, unless they plan to re-sod after the mud run, those areas are going to be washed out pretty good. There are building codes all over the place required for keep soil erosion to a minimum, perhaps that might help you some?

When I called and asked what the flags were for the first thing he said was 'this won't effect the course' like he knew we would protest. I live 10 miles away and work in another state. This course has always been looked after by other club members.

I'll keep on talking with them and see what can be done. We've always been second class citizens but presistent...maybe we can get more funding for other projects as compensation.

I would get the local players and media involved. Once outraged people start sending some calls the parks department's way, they might reconsider.

I'm sorry, I'm a confused Yankee.

What the **** is a "mud run?"

A trail of mud that you run through? Why?

Jukeshoe: <---Totally baffled.
