Congrats to Dan and Dick for having gotten at least this far! Shooting for folk hero status by the sound of things!  ;D

A couple of mistakes in the article but this does get us off to a great start. I will be posting a link for volunteer signup later this week.

I have yet to read a journalistic piece on disc golf (excluding disc golf-specific media) that doesn't contain at least a few errors. Scares me to think what's going on when I read a piece concerning something I know nothing about.

 Very exciting, good looking out Dan, I'm sure Mr. Parkers design will be more than interesting.

On Woodhenge, we basically start and finish at Castaways!!! Several holes on this side of the park...kinda scary with water everywhere!

Don't worry...there is always a safe way too go if you're to scared to go for it!!

It will be good great...I promise!

I've taken a couple of reporters with me during a round.  Have them play the easiest hole you can to start, then find a tough one as well, then after about 3 holes they are done....
