Grand Rapids Disc Golf Club
Dogs of Disc
Dogs of Disc would like to welcome you to the 31st year of the Grand Rapids Disc Golf Club. There have been many things taking shape since we last met in September. We would like to update you on these events.
1. West Michigan Sports Commission
We have been working closely with the West Michigan Sports Commission to add disc golf to the Meijer Olympic Games. A reminder to all that this event is an amateur event that will be focused on getting younger players involved in the sport. This event will be held at Brewer Park in June. We are going to need others help to make this event a success. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to help disc golf grow in West Michigan!
2. Kent County Parks and Rec Department/Brewer Park Renovation
Dogs of Disc has also been working with the Parks and Recreation Department to develop a new format for Brewer Park. The new layout has been sent for review. We are in the process of setting up a meeting to discuss the changes. Again, if this is approved we will need a lot of help to get things ready this spring!
3. Tournament Schedule
The meetings have been a success with the MDGO this year! We presented our tournament schedule and all was approved! We will again have berths for the state finals this year. A reminder to all that Dog Daze will be held at the Blue Gill Lost Disc Course, in Wayland. A huge thanks again goes out to Joe Gill for making this happen. We are also proud to be hosting this event as part of the J-Bird Players series. This is the first time we have been a part of this series. It was an honor to be approached to host this event!
All tournament information is posted at www.discgolfscene.com . Look for the Grand Rapids Dogs of Disc page. You can pre-reg for all tournaments for the year underneath the talk section.
4. Continued Renovations & Course Improvement
There are some additional Renovations planned for the future, but until more details have been hammered down we will keep that a mystery!
