I'm bringing my portable and Matt might bring his so we can play the first few of the back in succession.

We have a work day on Saturday May 21, from 8:30 to 12:00, with a round of golf afterward. If you haven't seen the back nine, I think you will be impressed by the potential, especially #14 through #18. These are going to be 5 great closing holes!



Areas that still need work include: Move brush piles to widen #16. Take down marked trees on #9 through #15. Cut up fallen tree on #18. Dig basket holes on #15 and #16.

It's really amazing, just what the few volenteers have accomplished with the amount of work done at Portage Lakes DGc. Only the people who has done the work can really understand. I'm so proud and blessed to be working with these people. We're so close. I can't wait to play the whole course insterad of working in the morning and playing a round afterwards. There's a lot of good people in this area that all mean well that are getting slammed. Unless your part of the movement, stand aside and let the movers and shakers do their thing. And then peace and harmony will surround us all.

Thanks erock216 for asking the moderator to delete the thread, thanks EW for backing up erock216. I'm not going to even open up the thread because it doesn't matter. I know we're in good graces with the State park dept with the work that we've accomplished so far, because that's what Bill and Steve reconfirmed with us the last time those two talked to the volenteers of the installation of this DGc). Are we going to upset an individual (s) with the installation of this DGC, we might. Is that ... more

No feelings hurt. Just sayin. I did read the thread erock referred to and it wasn't very pleasant. The thread essentially we t on to accuse the dgers of trashing the place and "clear cutting" the fairways. I am glad to hear that both Steve and Bill have said things are good with the park. I know how much work is going on down there, we are all blessed for the efforts. Sorry I missed you in Wooster also, it like you would have handed me my booty yet again. Congrats on the hot round and the PR .

OHHHHH, I hope I didn't hurt anyones fragile feelings, again. That wasn't my intention. all I know is what I see and what I know. We're (the Disc golfers of the world) not going to make everyone happy with what we try to do, even though everyone I know that is busting their respective tails are trying they're hardest to do whats best in what they feel they're doing to promote DISC GOLF. Maybe I'm blind or something, but I can't recall the last time I saw a disc golfer at any disc golf course ... more

Dan - You really need to lay off erock on this. There WAS a thread that he was referring to that was very damning towards the course installation from an outside source (an upset park goer), not a disc golfer. The thread has been deleted from its original position. I believe he was simply wondering what the view point was from a DISC GOLFER'S point of view, not the complaining citizen. Please don't assume every time someone asks for additional information it is an attempt to slam anyone.

we still need some more volenteering to make the back 9 playable. we're really close to opening up the back 9, but we'll always have the need for volenteers. So erock216, will we see you out there in an upcomming saturday work day?? Anyone else feel like helping us out, your more than welcome. Our club welcomes everyone who wants to help. Saturday mornings are our normal working day. We start early and play a round afterwards. Look forward to seeing you all out there soon.

erock216 wrote "not sure of the who", well you must of read or heard it from someone. but you remember all the slamming but not the person (s) doing the slamming of PLDGc. And since there's no proof of this slamming, just your heresay. I'd suggest you just mind your own buisness and let everything play out. I personally thank you for your concern but ......The club president, Mr. Steve Godar and park liason Mr. Bill Griffith said everything is fine. That's all I need to hear. As for the beer ... more

Everything's fine I talked to Steve who is in charge of the club he said, "I have had a meeting with concerned parties and the state park managers. PLDGA is all good to go"

not sure of the who. they basically accused you guys of trashing the park (beer cans) and clear cutting without permission. they said that the mayor or the park director was pissed. meetings were scheduled and the course could get pulled.

The forecast is for no rain this Saturday morning (May 7) so clearing is scheduled at the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course from 8:30 to 12:00. As usual, we'll play a round afterward. We will be working on hole 14, clearing brush to the alternate tee site. Clearing is also needed on the 16th fairway and the path between 15 and 16.
