  • 1 Year!!!

    Today 1/26/11 it has been 1 year since we started people's park!!!

    People are still down play the course, also all buckets are still in place and out there. I want to give a special thanks Jeremy Thortan for designing/helping me set up the course!!! I also would like to thank all my sponsors you have supported the course and all the players who have came out and gave me money to help make this a better course and to get baskets in.
    We have raised around 1,700 so far!
    Also would like to give a special thanks to Bob who helped me run the tournaments, as well as Lyle who helped run one of the tournaments and all my volunteers!!! There will be more tournaments this year starting in March. Hope to see more people out at the tournaments and playing the course.
    I know it has been a long drawn out year in trying to get the course put in permanently, but please do not give up hope on getting the course completed.

    Please come out and support the course.

    If any comments or concern please leave on this thread.

    Has it really been a year? Wow! A lot of stuff has happened in the year since the course was put into action.

    Played there about a dozen times. Last time I went there, Kevin was chasing down buckets that had been thrown into the water. We helped him locate a couple but alas, we couldn't complete the course due to missing buckets. It's been so long since I've been down there, I am not sure of what the layout is.

    I cant wait for it to have baskets. It could be just as much fun as Corbin is. Plus, it would be sweet to see tournaments that featured Highbridge, People's and Downriver in one weekend. Kudos to all who have busted their butts making sure the course is kept playable.

    Is there anyway to get an updated pic to show the current layout? I would love to play it on Sunday when I head down to Highbridge.

      Happy Birthday

      Thank you Kevin. Keeping the buckets in place for a whole year has been a job all by itself.

      May it be easier this year and let's hope the Spokane Tribe works with us.

        Right on, Kevin. Maintaining this course has been your labor of love, and it shows.

          I regret to say that someone went down and destroyed the course. It will be unplayable for right now. I am in the process of making more buckets. I need more plywood to help put them back together. also screws, liquid nails, & 4X4 post. if you have some of these materials and are willing to donate them to the park please call me at 509-216-4929 i am hoping to get the course up and running again and benefit tournaments up and running.

            Someone should notify the press (and the police, obviously).

              Beat Feet

              I have a set of 48 newly cut 'feet' for your new set of posts. That's enough to take care of 12 buckets. I think your resolve to keep our project at People's Park in place is the main ingredient in the recipe for our eventual success. A place in our pantheon of legends awaits you.

                  Huh?!?
                  I think 6am might be a little early for you... or is that your southern accent in text form?

                        Went down today and found Pripyat DGC. Looks like the creeps are winning...only 5 buckets left on the course (12 thru 16) and no signs of recent play.

                          Yeah, it's hard to get inspired to play when you've been playing half a course the entire time. It get's old trying to locate the buckets that some asshole has thrown into the creek a thousand times. It must be killing Kevin to have to maintain that everyday. I really hope the baskets go in the ground (or cement blocks) soon. Then I'd play it every time I went to Highbridge instead of going there every 3 months or so.
