A NEW ADVENTURE – DISK GOLF!!
This was something new for us!! Stasia decided recently that since her younger son will soon be “leaving the nest”; she and Gene need some new hobbies. They decided to try Disk Golf and love it! She said Disk Golf is becoming the hot new thing with courses are being developed all over the country for the game; and tournaments being organized, etc. They took us to the course that is currently being developed in Goldsboro. It is only half finished at this time, but will be the longest course on the East coast!
There are nine goals of large steel baskets with chains on a pole placed at various points throughout the park (there will be 18 goals). The idea is to throw disks, like freezbees, toward the baskets, usually taking two tosses to reach the basket with the last disk going in. We all had a great time playing on Sunday morning. Unfortunately, I was a retard and had not a clue how to throw the disks and usually took about seven tosses, but it was fun anyway!!
Maybe we can get a course going at some of the Thousand Trails Parks!! Actually, the goals could be set up as a bush, a tree, a fireplace, a stump, or anything around the campground. What do you say, Ru and Terry? How about setting up a course at Peace River, Stan??
