Please come on out and help. The parks dept is behind us in our efforts.   We are making great progress.  The park looks amazing.  the fairways are clear of ivy because they tilled up the soil.  However, off the fairways we are waging war and making tremendous progress.  The fairways are growing very nicely, we just want to make sure that when you shank one, you land in safe area.  there will be plenty of shanks and plinko ricochets to be had, so help yourself out now by cleaning up the park.  I got plenty of chemicals folks, i just need more bodies to help.  the ivy will not  go away by itself.  it will only get stronger as the warm weather approaches.  We got the good chemicals to apply, we just need more applications, especially from those of you living in EJC.  This week we are doing our second round of spraying the park.  if we missed you last week, please come out this week.  if you can't make it out this week, i will be working next week for round three of application.  if you can't make next week, i will be out the week of the tournament getting it ready.  After the tournament i am considering retiring.   ;D

Count me in for Thursday again. I am HIGHLY allergic and even after running the pole saw, not one single spot on me. Rally disc golfers, as a collective its time to repay the ivy for many itchy days.

if anyone can or would help, we will be out at young park again tonight, TONIGHT the 4th, spraying ivy.  please come if you can, the tourney is less than three weeks away and there is plenty of tree line.

bring a sprayer if you have it.  10 bucks at home depot if you don't have it.  Mike Keizer now's your chance.


it will give you a great chance to see all the work that's been done.  you won't be sorry.

Alright, I'll be there. Perhaps we can get a group buy on some Tec-Nu...

When do you want to help?  i might be back out tonight.  Are you good with power tools?   ;D


Also, thanks to  Eric Minton, Will Love, Mike Keizer, and Bill Shinoski who came out yesterday and brings the total to 155 hours of volunteer   service.  This is just in the last two weeks.  We hit one area heavily (that i missed on Round One) and then spot sprayed on the holes that were hit last week in round one.  Even after focusing a great deal of time in one area yesterday, we still got four to five holes sprayed.  The areas that were sprayed from Round One are improving greatly and it is becoming more difficult to locate ivy.  We got some really good chemicals from the P&R.

Cant wait for this course to open!!!! Number one it is very close to my home. Number two it looks like it will be very technical course and very fun.
1)Your mother doesn't play disc golf so pick up your trash!

2)Mike Keizer knows all the badass places to eat.

3)John Theiss has plastic and chains running through his blood.

4)Barton knows whats up!

It's a wooded course with grassy fairways-- that's why it reminds me of the wooded holes at Yates. However, that's where the similarities end. If you think Young Park is anything near as small as Yates you've got another think coming. I would guess the holes are on average much longer than Down Under, more like the length of the short pins at Swope, but that doesn't play so easily when the course is wooded and you don't have an open fairway to bomb. All I know Caleb is if you go there and try to drive those fairways 100% with a grunt, those trees are gonna break one off in yo ass! ;D

Caleb, play in the tournament and we will see how you shoot.  this is no walk in the park.  Not too many over the top shots.  Any course in town is bettter than no course in my opinion, whether kiddie course or not. Go play yates long pads and see if you shoot -10.   Then you can call it a kiddie course. ;D
