All unaproved work must stop :-(
So life in the disc golf community of Spokane took a dramatic shift today. There is no course work allowed or any alterations allowed to any course in the city of Spokane until 3 things happen..
1) The Club in charge of their park has to have an MOU agreement signed and approved to do anything to an existing disc golf course. This MOU is to be approved by the Park board. 2) The club has to have a business license or a non profit status.
3) The club must carry $2,000,000 worth of insurance on it's property at all times also covering the land holder.
These are all major changes for the way things have operated here in the past. We are scrambling to have every major hurdle cleared and to have our proposal to the Park board meeting on January 10th. We will have our end done. We are already a non profit group, we have 7/8ths of the MOU done and we have already begun shopping for insurance. If/when the park board approves our whole entire project the baskets will go in the ground. Until that point our hands are tied. There was talk within the city about bulldozing all completed work because none of the disc golf courses in Spokane have been actually approved via the Park board voting. Luckily the Parks people working on our side talked them down a bit with the assurance that the groups involved will take every necessary step involved to come into compliance with the city's needs. I hear that a similar thing happened at Steilly.. Lawsuit happy people seems to be the reason for this shift.
