Discin In The Dark 2013   August 23, 2013 at 9:21am

Glow season is approaching quickly.

Wrapping up one of my leagues next week and the other in just two weeks seems like an incredibly good decision . . . since it is virtually dark by 8:00 PM right now. We lose 2 minutes of daylight per day right now and it will soon be upon us that it is dark by 7:00.

While the first couple holes that we play might end up in "dusk' like conditions for the first few holes. . . the rest of the round will be dark and the lights or glow sticks will be necessary. I have plans to permanently attach solar landscape lights to the baskets at Valley View. I just need to ensure that the lights cannot be damaged or stolen without good effort. Why anyone would try to steal one of these lights (when they are there for the greater good of the Valley View disc golf community) would be beyond me but I cannot put it past anyone at this point. I just need to figure out the best way to protect these lights. Scott Slauson found these lights on clearance last fall and we used them a couple of times on a couple holes. I would like to have them permanently installed each fall so that people can enjoy VV in the dark from the months of September, October, and November.

See you soon . . . or at least your shadow from the moonlight!
