the thing that kills me is that apd knows underage drinking is going on there yet its to expensive to have some cops on bikes go through there on a regular basis ,im sure MAD and SAD would be outraged that the APD lets this happens. I guess i will carry a big can of bear spray with me when i play there ,so if we correct a group and they out number us we can deliver some manners via pepperspray...cant be unruly when snot is running from your nose and you wanna dig your eyes out

Biggest topic in Anchorage Daily News these days: Disc golf at Westchester Lagoon. Deep down inside I really feel like this is a bit of free advertising, haha!

Sorry Louie, I misread your post. Yes, we are outnumbered so we need to come up with creative solutions (with Parks and hopefully APD) to help bring the park back away from those who want to remove it.

For those that have paid the $10 non-pdga member fee at sanctioned tournaments- if you go to the pdga website under membership you are eligible for a "supporting" member- I believe you will be issued a pdga number and a rulebook, on your way to becoming a full paid PDGA member with full benefits including your lifetime PDGA number, ratings, PDGA membership disc etc. PDGA memberships are for the calendar year, keep your eye out for their end of the summer special where they usually give you the remainder of this year and next year with a full paid membership!

Another reason why we need more pay to play courses.

Louie, The problem is it isn't a small percentage. Unfortunately, our club is the small percentage. Yes, the club worked hard (thanks Anchorage guys) to install the baskets, re-work the course, and when our members are there they play with decorum and even pick up after the slackers. But just like in Kenai, it is hard for 8 players to pick up after 50 day after day. I think what Julia needed to write (and this is what I told her) is that the players who she has a hard time with are not ... more

It is sad when such a small portion of the population makes the rest of us look bad.

Thanks for posting this Dale. I was about to but you beat me to it. I read the article and it's JUNK! I understand Julia's concern but I feel like she's throwing us, paid members of the ADGA, under the bus. I'd be willing on betting that it's 3 / 97%. That's the good apples of the sport vs. the bad apples. I realize that not every person who uses WCL is a bad apple but there are so few of us who will put the sport aside for a few hours / days to help better it ... more

Looking to ride down with some other folks to Kenai for the Open this weekend. My wife says I can play. I'd just rather not drive down by myself.

I thought I would check and see if anyone is trying to get rid of a basket, sell a basket, etc. before I decide to buy a new one.

If you have one for sale, let me know and lets see if we can work out a fair deal. please contact me via disc golf scene email

Cheers,
