Just an FYI for yawl. The Cotton laying around the course is very flammable. A kid playing disc golf Tuesday lit some on hole 7, you will see it. Had to call the fire department. They sent two small trucks, and got it out pretty quick, but I guess that stuff goes up fast. The firemen said if that would have happened next month it would have been allot worse. We will need to be extra careful with open flames, and smoking this year. With all of the people playing now, and the amount of weeds out there we will be lucky if we get thru the summer without another incident. Just be careful.



As for the kids they stayed and faced the consequences/didn’t run away. I think they called the fire dept too. Good on them for that. I think the fire dept. just called their parents and that was it. They were stupid for lighting the cotton, but they stood up and took responsibility for their own actions. That’s awesome!! As far as the damage goes we will benefit from it by not having to search for our discs very hard in that spot now.
