    Doubles will be canceled this Saturday due to Ice Bowl. Also, I have been donating all of my winnings back to Camp Sekani.
    There will be a work party on Sunday at 10 am It will last approximately 4 hours ending in plenty of time to head to any Super Bowl party. Anybody who is really interested in being a part of this, would be at the fore front showing up. Bring rakes, shovels and gloves and your good back! Hope to see lots of faces out there!

    Disc Golf Uprising - Sekani Winter Jam - Historic Update and Changes...

    Golfers,

    Disc Golf Uprising is established!

    We'll be hosting weekly Pro-Am Doubles events at Camp Sekani on Saturdays at 11:30am.

    Please Note: Since there is only one area for parking and no snow plowing available at this time - and due to the fact that some don't have 4 wheel drive, Check to see if this event is on before arriving. Should there be a lot of snow, we will have to cancel. Call Jeff at 509-4755378 or Jeremy at 220-6552 if you're not sure.

    When you arrive and park, please walk up to the meadow area north of Upriver Drive. We'll usually have a fire going unless it's banned on that day. So, get warm and get ready play the newest course in the area.

    We know you'll enjoy the ever changing Camp Sakani Jamboree tempoary 18 hole Course.

    Since our initial benifit on November 6th, 10 holes have been improved.

    High Bridge is 5,666 ft. and Downriver is about 5,516 ft, but the Jam is about 6,200 ft. .That's over 500ft longer, and some consider it to be tougher than the courses in town.

    There are 2 par 4's, one in the front 9 that is 625ft. called "The Big Whoopty Doo, and another on the back 9 that is about 550ft known as "Heartbreak".

    Historic Update!

    On January 10th the SDGA voted to establish a new "Disc Golf Service Organization". A vote was taken of club members present and all 28 seated raised their hands in support of Jeff Crum and Jeremy Thornton beginning a new organization. This new DGSO is called Disc Golf Uprising.

    On January 12th the SDGA board and Jeremy Thronton met with the City Parks Operations Manager - Taylor Bressler, and the Sekani Operations Manager, Mike Aho and discussed our reasons for beginning a new organization. Taylor and Mike were in full support of the new venture.

    Also at that same meeting a letter from the North Idaho Disc Golf Club was presented to the City showing unanimous support of the new group by the full Board of that Club.

    So, with unanamous support, Disc Golf Uprising has begun!

    The SDGA gave us a check at the election on January 17th in the amount of $345.00. This was the money raised so far from our initial event which was the 1st Annual Jamboree Tournament held on November 6th 2011. This check also included the money raised by the those who have attended our weekly doubles play. In addition, when we are ready to buy baskets for the course(s) the SDGA has pledged to give us $1,800.00 toward that purchase.

    Many thanks to the SDGA for their support!



    Some comments from players about Disc Golf Uprising's Jamboree course:

    Joshua - "This is the only place I play!"

    Jeremy - "I haven't played anywhere else for over a month!"

    Ron - "I like what you've done. I even like it more than the last time I played it!"



    Other comments:

    "This place is awesome!"

    "Thanks for doing this!"


    Please note! Buy in has changed:

    Cost is now only $7.00. per player

    $4 goes to the payout and $3 goes to Disc Golf Uprising to help establish a course at Sekani.

    I'll bring some turkey dogs to roast after the play....

    bring something to share if you want.



    See you there on Saturdays

    What I said

    What I said arose from the fact that the SDGA holds in it's bank account $1750 from the goodwill of those who attended the People's Park Benefits. My statements were questions; Should we continue to hold these funds in trust for People's Park? and, asking that if it would be up to the Club to decide to use the money otherwise, including using it for installations at Sekani. Gordy.

    by would, I mean could.. It was a suggestion that he made during his treasurer's report.

    There will also be doubles this weekend on the 11th at 11:30. It is random, except that it is pro/am.
    From what I understand Peoples is dead. The Parks department is getting no where with the talks about getting permission from the Native Americans. Last I heard was a suggestion from Gordy that those monies would be used towards Camp Sekani.

    As of right now, the money that was raised for People's Park is on hold in case we get permission to actually install a course there.

    I'd imagine it will remain that way unless People's Park becomes a definite impossibility or until the SDGA is running so low on funds that dipping into the fund is required. I'd also imagine that if the second case happens, the PP fund would be refilled as soon as possible.

    Since the topic of money has come up, what has happened to the money that was raised for People's Park? Now that the course sounds like it is on hold indefinitely could that money be diverted towards Sekani?

    $40 more

    The $40 from the last two 4-mound Sundays went into the Club account today in addition to a big wad of renewal money. This $40 added to the $214 from the first Benefit at Sekani brings this dedicated Fund up to $254.

    Sekani $

    On Dec. 4th we had four carloads of players. Van Soest brought beer and brats and beer balls. The stove in the Clubhouse wouldn't boil the big pot of water for the dumplings so we didn't eat those. We did collect $20 for the Sekani Benefit. Last week we made $20 also. This will go into the SDGA Account when I get together with Bob and Jeff on renewal monies they have collected.
