October has come and gone but we still don't have the course in the ground. It appears things are pushed back until the spring when the eagle scout candidate is done with football and has time to seek funding for the signage and concrete.
PM me if you're interested in sponsoring a hole. We think it'll be about $125 when all is said and done. If you own a small business it's a cool write-off and you get a sponsorship sign!
Steve Werner, long time friend and charter member of Disc Golf Outlaws passed away on March 13, 2009. Spirit Ridge is the disc golf course designed in his honor by his brother Ron and sister-in-law Wendy. Located just outside Carnation Washington, Spirit Ridge boasts challenging terrain, beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife (other than Ron Werner).
That "basket" is a design that was put together by the Hilo Castaways, the local club on the Island of Hawaii. It is called a bunkajin, they were the primary target employed at the McKenzie course in Pahoa until the club recently received baskets.
Getty has prety much washed his hands of the Eagle candidate. Easy for him but the communiuty loses. Maybe a different point man
Maybe you have no idea what you're talking about, Jub. I will tell y'all that fundraising has begun, but Joe wants to keep it in the local business community. This is his project, not mine and not anyone elses. This is a project that the eagle scout candidate must spearhead from beginning to end. I am simply the course architect and was also enlisted to help sell the idea to the city council by presenting useful facts and potential numbers.
The project was almost totally scrapped when the benefactor made a surprise visit to the park and decided the park wasn't worthy. I managed to save it by asking a few questions and sending him a detailed map...turns out he never got out of his car to walk around and thought the whole course was going to be in the trees by the parking lot.
Joe does have a deadline approaching. If he doesn't meet it he will not get his rank. I believe it's in July. He's a great kid and I believe we'll be playing golf by summer.
