    The baskets are in Portland now! We'll be setting anchors on Saturday and doing some minor brush clearing. Feel free to join us at 9 a.m. for work assignments!

      Just a Reminder...

      Don't forget this Saturday at Leverich Park in Vancouver. We will be setting anchors, installing posts for tee signs and doing some minor fairway clearing. Tim the Sausage guy will be providing lunch and Stumptown and Vancouver-Clark Disc Golf will be picking up the tab.

      Bring with you, wheelbarrows, shovels, post hole diggers, gloves, buckets to haul water, rain gear, levels, and brush clearing tools. We'll provide an auger, cement, gravel, bark dust, and lunch! Don't have any tools, don't sweat it, we'll have tools you can borrow.

      Leverich park is located off exit #2 off I-5 in Vancouver. That means it is only 2 miles from the border of Oregon. Take the 39th Street off ramp and then turn right (east) on 39th Street. Then turn left on Leverich Park Way. There are three parking lots at the park. We'll be meeting closest to the middle lot in the picnic shelter. Feel free to park in any lot where there is parking.

      We will have a couple practice baskets in place so you can throw a disc or two between work assignments.

      Thanks for considering coming out and helping build Vancouver's first public disc golf course!

        Distance wheel works great on smooth flat ground. I'll bring a field tape to cross-reference with. I can bring wheelbarrow, rake, shovels, gloves, buckets, inverter, etc.

          I don't have any concrete-related tools, but I can bring shovels and rakes and implements of destruction. (My experience from Woodmansee was that probably the most effective tool is a good pair of leather gloves.)

              I've got a truck load of 4"x4"s and cement ready for tomorrow. I also have hot cocoa, granola bars, and water to get everyone moving in the morning. See everyone at 9 a.m.

                See you in the morning!
                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

                  That was the best work party I have ever been to. What were there - 30 people? We got 12 tee signs in and I believe there were 12 sleeves set. This is going to be a great course - close to I-5 and a lot of good topography for some fun holes.

                  Well done, Steve and to all who made it happen!

                    THANK YOU!

                    A huge THANK YOU to everyone that came out to set anchors and tee signs at Leverich Park today! There were a little over 30 people that showed up including two from the Parks Department, a half dozen from the college group at Compass church, Vancouver Disc Golfers and, of course, the Stumptown faithful.

                    We all braved the pouring rain and got our work down in a little over three hours!

                    We will be installing the baskets and signs for each tee on November 22nd, followed by the a course christening and the first round of golf. RSVP me if you are interested in coming out on the 22nd.

                      Sam beat me to the punch. Thanks to everyone involved in putting it together. It was a great work party - and fast.

                      Count me in for the 22nd. I can't wait to play it.

                        14 sleeves, actually. #10 and #1 have dual placements.

                            It was a blast to see so many people out to help Vancouver's 1st disc golf course. I can't wait to play the course. Thanks to all that came out.
