Usually I try to stay out of these types of threads but I feel like some response is needed in this case. I do share some of the frustration about the late notice - I'm new to the area and so don't know about these as early as some but I always post here when I do know.
You may or may not be aware but several people are currently working with Seattle Disc Golf Club to try and increase the level of organization etc. but this is still in the very very very early stages (i.e. like less than a month old) so we're hoping to ramp things up for next year. Lowell can't do it all on his own and until now, it looks like he pretty much has had to. The website I just created hopefully will help to keep people better informed about club and other Seattle area events but its less than a few weeks old and so likely doesn't have everything on it yet (please let me know if there is anything missing - I need the help of all TD's and players to keep the info up to date
I'm hoping that you will reconsider the more personal comments about Lowell. In case you have not noticed, North Park is continually in great condition (new woodchips, repainted pins and basket numbers) and Terrace has all concrete tee pads due to some of this $$$ with plenty in reserve for new projects and to cover insurance for any disc golf related mishap. Sorry to get a little hot in this reply but I think it is ridiculous to criticize someone who has volunteered so much time to our sport over the years. Constructive ideas and criticism is definitely cool, but this type of baseless bashing isn't.
IMO - North Park and Terrace are the perfect courses for this year as neither of them have a PDGA event due to the Terrace redesign and North Park just being too small for a true PDGA event. Perhaps in the future, new ideas will develop.
Hopefully this can be the start of new development and improvement for the club and I do hope it is; but it definitely will require us all working together
on it and not all the fragmentation and ish that currently in my limited perception seems to be out there.
Positive thoughts for a more united Seattle
