Speaking of WSU-V...I have a meeting next week to talk with the Office of Student Involvment about their future plans to expand their course to an 18 hole course. I'm going armed with the recent survey numbers from Leverich Park and going to encourage them to work with the local disc golf community to build a tournament level 18 hole course that could draw collegiate championships to the West Coast and encourage students to come to their Vancouver Campus.
I'll let you all know how that goes after I meet with them.
We could put an 18 hole (or more) course in Arnold Park if we had the money. Unfortunately we are not talking tens but hundreds of thousands of dollars to do this. However, I'm cautiously optimistic that we could raise that kind of money if we get the right people excited about the sport. The reason for the huge cost is because of the need for parking, restrooms and a bridge to access the park. Anyone have an in with Paul Allen, Bill Gates, Nike, the Firstenburgs or the Probstra families?
Finally, I am looking to share the load and plan to have a meeting of the minds in September. My goal is to assemble a team of dedicated behind the scene workers that will help us raise money and establish a pool of volunteers for the future.
