On July 28, 2011, Mark Kewley and I found out that we had been nominated for, and have been selected to receive, a Community Service Award from the City of Manhattan, KS. We will be receiving this award because of all the volunteer work we put into proposing, fund raising, designing, installing, maintaining, etc. the Warner Park disc golf course.
Mark and I are looking at this award in a broader sense. More specifically, we're looking at it as an indication that the Warner Park Disc Golf Course, and it's users (YOU), are effecting the the community in a positive way... and maybe most appealing to you, we think it's now time to start a move toward getting the "next nine" holes approved at Warner Park.
Here's where it gets interesting.
It is my understanding that he and I will be recognized at the next Manhattan City Commission meeting, which is scheduled for Tuesday evening, August 2nd. I will post the specific time ASAP. So, what we would like to do is have as many disc golfers in the audience as possible in order to display the public interest in our beloved sport of Disc Golf! This is the sort of public display that makes impressions in meetings (on decision makers)... which should help our goal of eventually expanding Warner Park to an 18 hole course.
So, please consider coming to City Hall (at 1101 Poyntz Ave.) on Tuesday evening August 2nd to set through this brief presentation. By doing so, you'll help get the ball (or disc) rolling for the "next nine" at Warner Park.
Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns.
