    Greenfest - Leverich Park - May 7th, 2011

    Stumptown Disc Golf is partnering with the Vancouver Watershed Council to introduce the sport of Disc Golf to an expected crowd of over 500 people coming to Leverich Park on Saturday, May 7th, 2011. We will be setting up a 3 hole demonstration course on in the field near hole 6 incorporating holes 6 and 7 along with a portable basket so families can try out our sport. We need about a dozen volunteers to come out as disc golf guides to help people learn how simple our sport is to start playing. Lunch will be provided by the event.

    Following the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. I'll be hosting a Stumptown Bag Tag Challenge for all bag tag holders. We may even have some discs to give away or other swag.


    The artwork will be available on exclusive "Green" discs (Innova Rubberwood discs). We will ONLY have 25 Rocs and 25 Aviars available.

    If you are available to help out as a Disc Golf guide, please contact me and let me know you'll be there so I can assign you a job. We'll need guides to go with groups as they play, a couple people to sit at the Stumptown and Firefly booths to talk to people and sell the discs, a couple people to run a putting skills station and a couple people to do an introductory etiquitte talk to small groups. You do NOT need to be an professional or advanced player to volunteer for this event.

    Thanks to those that came out and volunteered. Steve, Nate, Randy, Karen & Ross

    The organizers estimate that approximately 400 people braved the weather to attend the event. We had about 50 people play our 3 hole challenge course with borrowed discs and guides. It was great to see the young kids throwing discs and then running up to keep throwing till they made it the 165' to the basket. The Watershed Council was very happy with our involvement and is making plans for next year already.

    There are still a few of the Commemorative RubberWood Greenfest discs available. You can contact me directly or purchase online if you would like to help out with these fundraiser discs for the Vancouver Watershed.

    We'll be in the Hole 10 area of the course. The best parking will be found in the far north parking lot.

    We do still need help. They are expecting 500 people at this thing and I don't think we can have too many people helping out.

    I would love to have you there! It is awesome to know that we will be able to communicate with future players that may be deaf. It is also good for other people to see how popular disc golf is with the deaf community. See you there!

    How about volunteering to assist other deaf disc golfers? Wog, can you help this player out?

    Correction: After meeting with the folks from the Watershed council we are going to be doing the disc golf exploration on the north side of the creek. We'll drop baskets in all three anchors on the "island" for hole 10 and set up three short holes for families to play. The Stumptown Booth will be on that side of the creek also. Most guests will be parking in the far north parking lot anyway so this will work out well for them to walk right past the booth and have a chance to play on their way to the main event/band/food and booths on the south side of the creek.

    BTW: Hole 6 and 7 will be closed during this event as they will have booths set up throughout the field area.

    I still need a few volunteers to help out.
