So I met with the new director of Parks and Recreation with the City of Kalamazoo and we have come to agreements on several issues. First, they will be providing support via trash bags and implements to help keep our garbage cans from being dumped. Next, we have a green light to begin an actual fundraising campaign to provide park improvements and renovations, these improvements will be overseen and managed by the city, however, we will have our say in what improvements are made and we will have ... more

Help us clean Knollwood!

Hey everyone! We here at Knollwood are trying to raise money for merchandise to sell for our cleanup and improvement efforts. Follow the link at the bottom of this message for a full description, a short video presentation, and the opportunity to either donate, or share my message with others.

I have just heard that the director of the City of Kalamazoo Parks department has resigned, so we have a new opportunity to truly change the image of Knollwood.

Next year's Tourneys

If anyone is interested, I already have the tournament pages put together for the 2013 Worst Shot Dubs http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/3rd_Annual_Worst_Shot_Doubles_2013

and the 2013 Spinlab Backwoods Open

It's always nice to sign up early, I will be activating early pay a few months prior to the tournaments, also, for those interested, I will be running a large fundraiser that will hopefully also be a Discraft Ace Race.

Tournament Season Ends With Grand Prix Action!

First, I must thank our sponsors, without whom we would not have had those sweet player packs for everyone!

We were also generously sponsored by Innova Champion Discs, Millenium Golf Discs, and Gateway Disc Sports.

I would like to give special thanks to each and ... more

Disc Golf Element Discovered!

Thanks to the professors down at the Spinlab, we now have synthesized and cataloged and now has a name. The element that causes our discs to smack into trees is now number 31 on our table of elements and is aptly named "Treesmackonium". Treesmackonium is the disc stamp for our 2013 Worst Shot Doubles and will grace the front of the discs made for that tournament. Due to this year's results, I will be separating this one into two divisions, open and recreational.

Welcome to our disc golf laboratory!

The purpose of the new Knollwood Spinlab is simple, to maintain regular games on a weekly basis and to develop new formats and keep this ever-growing sport evolving!

The Spinlab is a sister organization to the K'wood Chiefs, which is now mainly a staging group for our volunteer cleanup efforts. On Monday evenings we will continue to host our random partner doubles event for $5 per person and there will be a regular match play event every week on a day to be determined.
