It brings a huge smile to my face to finally announce that we are soon hosting the first ever PDGA event inside the city limits of Bend. It's been over 8 years since we first sketched the layout (been revised a handful of times) and now in one month from today, discs will fly all over the 165 acre park site at the Bend Pine Nursery. 18 of the 27 holes are expected to become a permanent layout following the event. We've been prepping the course site for the last few months with the help and support of the Bend Metro Park and Recreation District.
The course is a combination of turf and natural areas with mature ponderosa pines and old growth juniper, a large pond, elevation changes, rock outcroppings and canyon walls. This low cost event is part fundraiser and part celebration. We will compete in just one round of 27 holes each day.
The event will also include an ultimate Frisbee tournament with 16 teams (250+ players), a freestyle exhibition, distance contest, MTA, K-9 King's Dog show, putting contest, etc. There is a "carnival" themed player's party at the Century Center on Saturday night that includes food and drink (7 breweries supporting this event) with live music, $10 optional.
Let's disc go. Event details
