I'm with the Ford Leadership Institute class planning a disc golf course for the Astoria area, with the goal of providing more all-ages outdoor and fitness activities in our area. You can check us out at:
. On a personal note, it's a bummer to only get to play on trips to Portland. So, we welcome anyone who wants to help us get a course built out here. Besides, it's another great excuse to come visit the beautiful North Coast.
I'm currently doing outreach to recruit a course designer(s), plus folks interested in helping fund-raise or construct. We have a goal of building at least 9 holes in summer 2010. There's a lot of momentum -- local schools and parks and rec programs have been purchasing portable disc golf units so we know there is interest.
Let me know if you'd like to get involved, have some pointers, or want to know more about our potential locations. You can contact our group through the website, or contact me directly at:
Thanks very much!
