Maybe what the Spokane disc golf scene needs is some new blood to start running some events. People willing to take the challenges head on with a breathe of fresh air. People who are knowledgeable about tournament play, talk to a lot of other disc golfers, and can please them by taking their comments, thoughts, and plentiful opinions into consideration. Players who have the creativity to stamp their own ideas into such novel events. Imo, bringing the tradition back, probably in the form of a new event, would be a step in the right direction, and a huge service done for disc golfers. Can anyone think of someone to take on such a "prospect"?
Cory, the tradition is not lost, just taking a year off for the project at Highbridge. Originally in November I was hoping to use Downriver, Highbridge and Camp Sekani for the three course venue. Unfortunately that wish was to go unfulfilled.
As for new TD's Deron Van Soest is cutting his teeth on this years DRO and Nancy Morgan is working on the Women's Global. I'd like to get Simmeltron on the TD training wagon.
Next year the LCO will assume the tradition that has made it a great tournament.
