Well as far as ideas go our club has met with city of Richland for a new course as well as Kennewick for a course! My suggestion for you to get sponsors is to go talk to the rotary of Yakima. My brother who was really involved with them said they love to give out donations to organizations especially those that Benicia children so that is my goal here is to talk to them about a 5000 dollar sponsorship. Before going into that though I will be talking to the local YMCA as well as local community centers to have myself or other club members donate time to help local kids in the community with learning disc golf! I know that sounds like a lot but 8 Thursday afternoons in the summer for 2 hours isn't that much considering that by donating that time before you ask for money will go a long way in a big donation! Just formulate a well thought out plan and have more than yourself show up! Look on innovas website and they have a pre made brochure on there on how to take things to your city p and r! Great information! I like the idea on the eagle scouts! Also if your doing signs go talk to the local college art department for help! Ask them to draw up some art for holes and ask them for sponsorships that don't involve money but involve time consuming work! Tell them that the college logo will be on every sign! Go talk to local business. Local businesses donate money much more! Also try and find a local Minot Matt that might be willing to have discs for sale in there store. Get them all the contact info and have them be the local place to go to buy discs! A store would love that! Money obviously is and will be the hardest thing. Just go for the big donar, cause all you will need is that one to get it all paid for!
Respectfully Kyle smart

Next step is to get together with the director of yakima county parks and work out which park would be best suited for a course. Again, any suggestions on how to gather sponsors for the course? Best way to present this opportunity to businesses? Everyone involved is super excited about disc golf coming back to yakima. Any help would be appreciated.
