Fort Morgan Times HPC Articles

We got good responses from the press releases I sent to the Fort Morgan Times newspaper. They published 2 articles for the event. One as a promo for the event on Monday 6/13/11 that was pretty much word for word from my CDSA press release. The other one was a full article with pictures from the event, dated Tuesday, 6/21/11.

 

Here is the first article from 6/13/11

Course Changes at Badlands South / Lighthouse / David Lorenz Park

Some of you may have noticed some stakes and painting on the ground at the Badlands South / Lighthouse course. Well the fact is, the South Suburban Parks Department has purchased the old boat storage/Lighthouse building area. They will be using the existing road, where the picnic table now sits by tee 1. The course had to change because they are going to have to take out existing holes 2 and 3. There will be a pond constructed where the bowl of hole 3 is now.

 

So a couple…

9 Hole Challenge Series Cancelled

I'm sorry to say that we have decided to cancel the 9 Hole Challenge Series. It was a lot of work for not much gain or benefit. We didn't have very many people show up. In fact, the most people we had come to any of the NC9HC events last year was 9. I'm grateful to those who did play the inaugural series last year. It was indeed a lot of fun! But the fact remains, as long as I am doing all the work to keep the CDSA running, I can't do two different series of events again this…

2011 is Going to be a Busy Year

Well the ball is rolling with full steam. I have gotten our 2010 champions mini's ordered, setup the 2011 PayPal memberships button and added 99% percent of all the disc events into our calendar.

I've reworked the CDSA Thin Air Tour Sanctioning Agreement and am working on the 2011 Press Release so I can get it out for Grateful Disc, now a little more than a month away.

NC9HC#4 -Denver#1 CANCELED

I have finished the 2010 CDSA Highlights Document. This is what I'm hoping people will learn, concerning everything we're doing to revive the CDSA this year.
