    Hi all.

    I'm with the Ford Leadership Institute class planning a disc golf course for the Astoria area, with the goal of providing more all-ages outdoor and fitness activities in our area. You can check us out at:
    http://www.lowercolumbiadiscgolf.info/. On a personal note, it's a bummer to only get to play on trips to Portland. So, we welcome anyone who wants to help us get a course built out here. Besides, it's another great excuse to come visit the beautiful North Coast.

    I'm currently doing outreach to recruit a course designer(s), plus folks interested in helping fund-raise or construct. We have a goal of building at least 9 holes in summer 2010. There's a lot of momentum -- local schools and parks and rec programs have been purchasing portable disc golf units so we know there is interest.

    Let me know if you'd like to get involved, have some pointers, or want to know more about our potential locations. You can contact our group through the website, or contact me directly at:

    Thanks very much!

    Fort Stevens State Park would be a great place for a course. Oregon State Parks Dept. is becoming more and more supportive.

    Keep us updated on how things are going or if you need any help from this side of the Coast Range. When you have 18 holes in the ground, I'll throw a little "Bash at the Beach", PDGA B Tier.

      Whatever you do, DO get a course designer with experience. Learn from the mistakes of those who have gone before you, and do not make them again. There's a LOT of course design info and tips out there.

        Those tamales made a pit stop at my place, the logistics made it a must. Stern set me up with a couple for a handlers fee and boy were they good!! I didn't think of steaming them... just nuked em' with some cheese. MMMMMMMM

              I missed out last year, but I want in this year!

              Hath this whole world been mired in madness?
              Remain ye men of faculty complete,
              Of full arithmetic and prudence fair,
              Attending to our noble bond and contract?
              Or does here stand the last remaining man
              To give a fig for rules and order yet,
              No noble savage, but a stave unbroken
              Who loves the law and bids it no misdeed.
              Iíll not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.
