  • Discatchers Spotted along I-90!!

    We were coming back from the Windy River in Tri-Cities yesterday when at about 7:45 disccatchers were spotted on the north side of I-90 somewhere between Cle Elum and Easton. At the time we did not make note of the e location because we thought it was a new course. However I can not find it on any Course Directory. Does anyone have any info on it. Looks like it will be a nice course off the Interstate to stop at when traveling between tournaments!

    (If you click on the "photos" link, you'll see some pictures of DISCatchers.)

        What happened? The link is dead, and I can't find anything. I want to add this to the new Washington disc golf map at www.wadiscgolf.com !

          I know, it looks like their domain might have expired and got taken over by a squatter. On the other hand, the "whois" info still shows Michael Kidder of Cle Elum as the owner; his e-mail address is visible here: http://whois.domaintools.com/ratpactrail.com

          By the way, Gawain, I'd like to put your name on that map instead of mine. What URL or e-mail address should I link your name to?

                  This actually sounds like good news. The guy putting the course in could have soured the city council on the idea of a DG course but they agree with him that it is needed in the community. Plus, going from 5 acres to 10 acres should make for a better course. Win-win, really - thought it might seem like a temporary loss.
                  ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

                    Now that's initiative! To buy 18 brand new Discatchers and put them on city property without asking! BALLSY!
                    A bad day on the golf course is better than a good day at work!

                      To bad you guys missed out on this course while it lasted....it was a riot...except for the occasional train driving past blowing its horn. The baskets were pulled a few weeks back for anyone who was driving past.....but the good news is Mike has all the baskets and the city has approved a new peice of land. He is in the process of designing the new course on land around one of the local ponds. The old 18 was on 5 acres with a bit of cross traffice, the new one will be on a 75 acre stretch of the same type of land....not a bad upgrade if I do say so myself. If you have questions or would like to help plant the course contact Mike cleelumbike@hotmail.com

                          I read the Article, and the posts to go with it. They "Can't wait for some Frisbee teams to start." The local towns will each have a Frisbee team! Reminds me of the people at W.O.U. and how they thought "Ultimate Frisbee" and "Disc Golf" were the same thing. It was a girl's college, so I just played along. "Cool, thanks, I like your Frisbee too!"

                            What about the land behind the elementary school? There is an existing 'rinky-dink' course with posts as targets and wooden pallets for teepads, that was set up for a senior 'fling' or something-- the course is super short and not worth playing in my opinion, but I think that the woods back there would be ideal for a dgc. There is some elevation change, meandering trails and dirt roads that carve through a heavy to moderately wooded area.
                            Paging Adam Schneider, can we get a aerial photo stat?

                              I can post a link if you can tell me exactly where you're talking about, map-wise.
