The Saturday weekly has been changed to a 9 am sign-up and 9:30 start time. As always, current information for the Jam at Sekani can be found on the Disc Golf Uprising page on Facebook.
Thanks for the gratitude, Sean! There was a core group of us that worked hard to bring this course to fruition and we hope everyone enjoys it and respects it as much as we do. There are no garbage cans up there, so hopefully everyone will pack out their cans, bottles, and cigarette butts to keep the land clean.

You guys are awesome and I really appreciate all the hard work that went into getting Spokane not just another course, but a first-rate one at that.
On February 6th I called Al Vorderbruggen, our Parks contact to ask him If I should attend the Lands Committee meeting that was scheduled for today. Al replied that we weren't even on the agenda! Whoa! I was taken aback. He said that the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was only in a draft form at this time but the committee wants to see a finished document. I think I said something like, Oh, wow! Then Al said something that completely surprised me to say the least. He said, We're going to go ahead and let you guys start playing. We don't want to hold you up any more. Go out there and have fun!
Disc Golf Uprising is extremely happy about how much favor we have received from God, and from the entire community. Many businesses have sponsored our Club, and many people have contributed labor and support in various ways, encouraging our efforts to get our first course going. We are thankful for everyone!
Having said that, as the summer heated up with many work parties we began to notice that the core construction crew was made up of just 7 guys. These guys were there for a minimum of 3 work parties and some were there for many more.
So, today we enacted our plan. You see we've been planning to have something we call the Lock & Load round. This would be the day that the our faithful crew of 7 guys would drop the baskets, lock 'em up and play the very 1st round at the Jam. So, that's what we did today. We had special shirts made up and enjoyed the fruits of our labors.
We'll post some photos.
Al said that were not allowed to have any big events just yet but the schedule of weeklies that they approved is okay to go ahead with. So with that in mind join us for Pro/Am or Random Draw Doubles this Saturday February 16th at 10:00am. We'll meet at the entry way just above the parking lot. The round will start promptly at 10:30am. $7.00 per person. $5.00 to payout. $1.00 to the club and $1.00 to the ace pot (optional). There will be a $100.00 ace pot and an additional special prize for the 1st Ace in a weekly at the Jam. At the end of the round there will be a CTP Prize with our Vortex practice basket throwing across the meadow on the way back to the parking lot. We'll conclude the round at the fire pit at the edge of the meadow. See you there. - Weeklies are run by Curt McGeorge and Justin Toney.
I'm surprised you've read this far. Don't forget Saturday! Get out there and play!"
