5th Annual Upper Hudson Heroes Chili Cook-Off 4/16, 2PM-6PM

Post by timdef » Thu Mar 10, 2016 8:14 pm

DisCap has been asked to participate in the 5th annual David Fisher Upper Hudson Heroes Chili Cook-Off. This event is the groups main fund raiser for 2016. The event will be held on April 16th 2016 from 2:00 P.M. thru 6:00 P.M. at the Watervliet "dome" located at the corner of 2nd Ave. and 13th St. in Watervliet.

We just show the sport, share the enthusiasm, tell them where/how to start playing. Are there any DisCappers who don't like Chili?!

They would give us the 60' batting cage for the event! If we can get a speed gun.... THAT would be fun (moreso for us :) ) but we could at least do the putting thing similar to what we did at the ADK Expo

I'm "in" because we like spreading disc golf and I am happy to support Veterans. I lost my dad last year who was a Veteran and he suffered in his own way after Vietnam. He spent good amount of time in his later life doing what he could for others and I take some pride in doing the same.

Event includes:
Chili
rock wall
bounce house
face painting
LIVE MUSIC
Chinese Auction
Door Prizes
food... :obscene-drinkingbeer:... water...



Anyone else have April 16th afternoon free? It's only 4 hours!

I think I'll be able to help, but probably not for all four hours.

this thing is in 6 days... anyone else willing to spend some time? I'd love to not have to stay the whole time (but I will)

I thought there'd be a little more support for something like this...?

grow the sport!

If you'd like to you can. I have no way to get them to you. You'd have to come by my place to grab them.

Jaimen H and I survived. I ate too much Chili. Not a single veggie chili. The best chili there in my opinion was chock full o' veggies (#8) but it also had pork n beef. anywho...

we had kids putting ALL DAY LONG. we never didn't have someone playing disc golf so that was very cool but it kept us pretty busy. We started out in the batting cage, which was pretty much putting in a netted hallway. fun for us to let it rip but not useful for teaching beginners. We quickly moved it so the batting cage was our "back stop".

I had a moment of kid management! :lol: in a moment of chaos I kinda asserted myself and set up an impromptu 120-degree ring-of-fire, pointed to kid 1, "throw", kid 2, "now you can throw", etc down the line. They followed my direction and I was proud of myself so whatever 8-)

met a wide array of folks. Only one person actually took the time to reject the printed information that Jaimen took the time to walk over to hand-deliver to her... her kids (grand kids?) both ended up putting for 20-30 minutes. oh well.... we met some people who have 125+ acres of land in Washington county, they joked "we should build a disc golf course on the trails"... we would have been prying to push too hard on it. They have our information at this point.

that's that. on to the next one

THANK YOU Jaimen H!
