I just wanted to let everyone know that the NIRDGC is trying to organize a work party at Corbin Park DGC on Tuesday April 20th (spare me the 4:20 jokes please - they really aren't that funny) at 5pm. The deal we have with the city of PF is that if we get at least 6 volunteers they will donated the use of a tractor and chainsaw that will be run by a city worker, if we don't get at least 6 signed up in advance we don't get the city's help. The plan is to place log barriers on holes 11, 12, and new hole 5 to block cars and to get any other work done that needs to be. We have a new basket for the hole that will be located between holes 8 and 9 and 2 sleeves have been installed for that hole. I also believe the sleeves for the 2 seasonal holes on the west side of the park may also be ready to go we just need to raise money to pay for the baskets so donations would be much appreciated. Also, the rubber mats that we will be using for the 3 (or 4) new teeboxes should be in tomorrow so we need to get those ready and installed. There will be a small group out there working on some stuff on Sunday so if you are not playing the DRO I am sure they would appreciate your help. If you have any questions or want to sign up for the work party call Jack at (208) 691-1126 or stop in at Rapid Fire Plastics and make a donation please.
Old hole 5 no longer plays from its original teepad so DO NOT THROW FROM THAT TEEPAD - PERIOD. Dave Fair (PF Park and Rec. Director) was adament about not having the road be the fairway for that hole so do not throw that anymore. There are 2 new holes to the west of the road being played with buckets until the club can get enough $$$$ to buy 2 new baskets. There is a new rubber teepad for new hole 5, new hole 6 throws off the big cement slab that was there previously, and you back track to the same pad to throw new hole 7 (old 5 basket). There will be congestion for the new holes 6 and 7 and I hope we can remedy that soon but remember to not play from the old teepad for hole 5, it will probably be removed soon anyway. There is a new hole between old holes 8 and 9 that is new hole 11, it throws from the new rubber pad to the new basket. Old hole 12 (new hole 15) has been move as well. There is a rubber pad up by the old short pin position that plays to a new basket nearish to hole 2, pretty cool hole so far. When that basket gets moved to its original position then you will tee off from the old dirt pad. Corbin is still a work in progress and the NIRDGC is working to raise funds to pay for 2 new baskets (and to pay for the rubber teepads that have already been installed). Thanks to all the disc golfers who have helped make that new work possible and hopefully we get a strong turnout tonight to get more work done. IF we get enough volunteers out tonight we have plans to move rocks to block cars from parking in bad areas on the course. Corbin is still a work in progress. Hopefully in the near future we can make some changes to Cherry Hill as well to try and make it a better more challenging course as well but we have no plans (just ideas) yet.
