**Pending Town Board Approval on 9/14**
As many of you know I have been working on bringing a course to my home town for the last two years. October 24th will finally mark the first Disc Golf event at Fortin Park in the town of Oneonta. The goal of the weekend to is showcase the sport to the Oneonta area and raise money for the permanent installation of the course. Thank you to our Title Sponsor the Oneonta Rotary Club for making this event possible. Here is the plan for the weekend:
Sunday, October 24rd, 2010 - Full service tournament utilizing temporary baskets. The tournament will include two rounds of 18, players packs to both pros and ams, CTP prizes, Ace Pot, distance and ring of fire contests. For the most part we will be using the proposed layout of the permanent course although two of three of the wooded holes will have to be altered since we won't carve new fairways until the funding is in place for the new course.
Saturday, October 23RD, 2010 - New players clinic - Saturday we show the community how to do it, Sunday we show them how it's done. This is the opportunity for experienced players to sell their passion for the sport to an entire new population of players. Custom stamped starter sets will be available for sale and new players will be taught the basics of the game we all love.
I am hoping to get a nice contingent from CNY to help fill a huge void in New York's disc golf map. The course is just an hour and a half drive from Oxbow Falls. The majority of the baskets will be on loan from DisCap, however I am still looking for 5-7 more. I am also looking for 3-6 experienced players that may want to help on Sunday. I will put clinic volunteers up at my place on Saturday night and my basement bar will be free flowing. it will not be a boring night
I will also be selling some nice CFR plastic including Champion Katanas and Champion Makos. Hole sponsorships will also be available.
More details to come in the next two weeks.
