First, let me say that I have no problem with someone promoting a drug free, safe environment for our citizen's to enjoy our local courses. I'm all for it. I'm working to get more youth golfers to show up for events I run, and I think that we need to be a good example for younger folks in our sport. Having said that, I'm not very happy about the Oregon State Sheriffs Association stickers that are being placed on the Tee Signs at Adair.

First, let me say that I have no problem with someone promoting a drug free, safe environment for our citizen's to enjoy our local courses. I'm all for it. I'm working to get more youth golfers to show up for events I run, and I think that we need to be a good example for younger folks in our sport.
Having said that, I'm not very happy about the Oregon State Sheriffs Association stickers that are being placed on the Tee Signs at Adair. They have an 800 number on them to call to "report marijuana" use. Some (well meaning?) individual has taken it upon him or herself to plaster these right in the middle of our beautiful Adair tee signs.
This is not cool. It's irresponsible, ignorant, and annoying behavior. Marijuana users in the park have not caused me any problems, EVER. They don't affect my use of the park. I take my 3 kids to the park all the time and I've never felt like I needed to shelter them from rogue pot smokers dangerously running about in a state of "reefer madness".
The stickers annoy the hell out of me, and I suspect that the person littering the course with them has too much time on his hands and needs to find a hobby. Hey, how about disc golf?!
I doubt very much that I am reaching the individual responsible for this by posting here. If I am, please stop being such a self-righteous douche bag, and find something better to do with your time. Also, please get permission from Benton County Parks and/or the WDGC (Willamette Disc Golf Club) before posting ANYTHING on our tee signs.

Anybody know if the course has an event this weekend? I'm hoping to head down from Portland for a couple of rounds on Saturday the 22nd and I want to make sure the course is open and ready for action. Thanks!

assistance needed for this sunday to load the t-pads on a trailer.10AM I will be at the park and ride off I-5 and Delaney <enchanted forest exit> to swoop anyone who wants a ride with me. we plan to play adair doubles at 11am then maybe a singles round <SO I CAN SHOOT EVEN> then load the t-pads... anyone welcome to help

I'd like to put a call of assistance to a project I am involved with. I have permission and am trying to find a way to move 2 of the old framed Adair tee pads to Canyonview Camp in Silverton. They are large and heavy and would mostly require trailer or flatbed setup. Also very heavy since 1 large framed piece, would require 3-4 healthy bodies to load and unload. Hope we figure out as a disc golf community how to get this project done. Thank you in advance.

I got the day off tomorrow anybody wanna maybe meet up and play? Let me know I'm free all day
Billy Gaskill November 23 at 1:17pm
Doubles @ Adair tomorrow! 11am, $4 buy in, $1 Mulligans (up to 2), $1 Ace pool. (So, $7 "all in")
Normally this is a random draw event. In honor of old Gibson and Banner, we're going to be playing it Pro/Am style, or "uphill/downhill".
Come on out and play dubs on the BRAND NEW CONCRETE TEE PADS!!!!

Hey all, Nate and Jay Sexton, Doug Ulfers and some others are going to be out at Adair tomorrow spreading gravel. I've heard they are shooting for 10am or so. They will have Doug's Kubota to haul the dirt and gravel, but I'm sure they could use as many arms with attached shovels and rakes as possible. Many hands, light work and all. If you can make it out, that would be awesome. This time, you can play a round after working!!
Billy Gaskill November 19 at 10:28pm
WOOHOO!!! Adair is open for play! The forms have been removed and the baskets have been replaced. Thanks to Nate Sexton and Dave Pittman for their work today. Thanks again to everyone involved in making this a reality! BE CAREFUL: Nate says there are some significant drop-offs at the ends of pads. We need to move some gravel in the next few days to make them more safe. Watch those ankles! Anyone who has time to move some gravel/remove the old fill dirt piles at the ends of the pads wo ... more

Anyone who has time to move some gravel/remove the old fill dirt piles at the ends of the pads would be greatly appreciated. If you have questions about what needs to be done or how to do it, post them on this thread and I'll get you an answer. It should be pretty straight forward.
I'll be out next week playing every day I can! Hope to see some of you out there.

We're wanting to open the course tomorrow, but Nate Sexton reports that we need some gravel spread , especially on the ends of tee pads to take care of drop offs, to make it safe. I wish I could make it out, but I'm slammed all week. If any of you can come out and move gravel tomorrow, I think we could open the course!
let nate know if you can make it out.

BASKETS ARE REMOVED so don't get the notion to throw off to the side of the T-pads, THIS COURSE IS NOT PLAYABLE AT THIS TIME.
Steve Moore November 15 at 10:39pm
And the course will be closed to play until the 20th is posted date at this time
Steve Moore November 15 at 10:08pm
What a great day and here are some photos to show it, the weather held and the work got done. Great Job All!!
Hopefully link works for you, if not Steve Moore photos
Again Big Thanks All involved in this whole project from those that dug and prepped, frame work, and now today the pour.
Billy Gaskill November 14 at 7:32pm
Let me know if you are coming out tomorrow to help with the concrete pour. Also, let us know what you are bringing (shovels, wheelbarrows, trowels etc)
Billy Gaskill November 14 at 10:53am
The course closure will extend through the weekend. Unfortunately, we couldn't get the concrete poured until Friday for the new tee pads. I suspect we'll put the baskets back in place on Monday, 11/18/13.
Billy Gaskill November 11 at 6:50pm
The course is closed until 11/16/13 (estimated). We are putting in concrete tee pads!!! yay
