Title: Spreading the love of this great game!
Post by: kev on June 19, 2013, 06:05:24 AM
On Friday, I will be representing disc golf to a group of ball golfers at the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing at Nettle Creek Country Club in Morris.  The golfers will have an opportunity to putt at a basket at one of the tee pads while waiting to tee off on a hole.  I will be raising money for the Chamber's Scholarship fund for area high school seniors.  The golfers will donate $1 per putt, if they make a 40' putt I pay them $5.  I'm hoping to raise around $200 toward the scholarship fund!

Oughta be a great way to expose disc golf to those who are not familiar with the game!

Do you need any help? What time will you be there? Perhaps I could give tips on how to putt. Good cause with helping others.

It will be fun Kev. Do you need any putters?

Awesome!  I think I'm good for putters, I've got quite a few for the golfers to choose from. But of course if you want to bring yours to demonstrate with, by all means feel free!

See you Friday!  You're right, should be fun!

It was a fun day! I forgot my sunglasses, Kev had shorts on that hurt most peoples eyes. :)  Grundy County Chamber of Commerce ran the event. We were on hole #2 & our station raised $440.00. Maybe Kev has more details, I had to mention the shorts. In fact, I called on the way & asked if he had some goofy clothes on. Yep!
