the years almost over

As of January 1, 2011, I'll no longer be the 1st President of Pinconning Disc Golf Club, but instead be retired from duty.

rate the course, please

anyone that has played Blizzard Hills would be doing the course a great favor by going to http://www.pdga.com/course_directory/course/blizzard-hills-dgc
and posting a favorable and honest rating. Remember, the course is the only non publicly funded public course in the Saginaw Valley and has been cut out of the woods by hand and all signage, baskets and upkeep comes from donated funds.
