Well, first off, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend.
Now, as some of you know, the Boulder Woods Country Club Llamas of Gifford Pinochet State Park have been doing these crazy things called Trifectas. We're taking that idea a little farther and turning it into a monthly event. We may not get through all three (3) courses the first time, but we'll have a blast trying.
These events came out of a desire to see how much disc we could play in the limited amount of daylight that winter provides us. Now we are not going to push like crazy on the first one to finish in daylight. We are going to see what its like with a crowd. We are going to be playing Seneca Creek State Park, Heritage Farm Park and Woodsboro Park if time allots. Seneca Creek is a 27 hole layout. There are short and long tees along with multiple basket locations. We will be playing all 27 holes from the Short Tee's. There will be a score card provided which shows the proper Tee and Basket location for Sunday.
Then we are off to Heritage Farm Park. We will be doing lunch in the parking lot of Heritage Farm Park. This way those who brought there lunch can sit down and enjoy everyone's company and those who did not bring a lunch will have the chance to grab something on there way and eat with us all if they choose. We will then promptly Tee off once everyone is ready, this is the part that is flexible. 3pm is the rough tee time, this time is not set in stone and depends on the length of time it takes to play Seneca. There is 18 holes of disc golf at Heritage Farm Park. This course should go a bit faster than Seneca Creek.
Now depending on the amount of daylight left we are going to try to squeeze in 9 holes at Woodsboro Park. This is another flexible part of the day.
As far as schedule goes, I know its flexible but this is the best guess and what we are sticking to.
We are going to be meeting at McDonalds in Dillsburg, PA. We need to be on the road by 7:45am. So if people could be there 15 mins or so early that would be a huge help. We will then be making a stop at the Sheetz, just outsideGettysburg, where 15 and 30 cross. From there we will be heading south to Seneca.
We are asking everyone to print off there own directions and know how to get to the courses and from course to course. We have provided links to all maps and information you will need. This is in effort to make travel easier for us all on Sunday. We will provide a Scorecard and Map for each course.
Also, anyone who has a camera please feel free to bring and take as many pictures and videos as you want. We can post them on Facebook and on Disc Golf Scene for the world to see what they are missing out on.
Again, I look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday for the kick off event.
