Your support is greatly appreciated. You can prove it playing the course next time you're in town.
Baby steps and patience, please. I realize this has some similarities to a few projects over in Eugene, we just don't want to push too hard until it's time. Much of the work is already completed and just waiting to flip the switch. The parks are aware of our interest and need. This project has been planned since 2001 and layout and park phasing plans have been modified many times in the last 10 years due to budget restrictions, etc. There isn't even a bathroom installed on the site yet (porta-john village for the tournament) and many other access/egress issues that need addressed before we can even consider approval.
So, we're not quite to the stage where a barrage of emails will benefit our cause. But, if you have a financial contribution or some other helpful info it couldn't hurt to send it our way. There are many folks involved at BMPRD, here is the contact info: http://www.bendparksandrec.org/info/About_Us/Contact_Us/
The Disc Go Ball
is planned to showcase the course and demonstrate how our sport is played and that is what we are asking for help with right now. With that in mind, please everybody be on your best behavior this weekend.
