Chain Cutting Ceremony - Thurs July 29 @ 6pm

Post by jZip » Tue Jul 27, 2010 9:05 am

This Thursday (7/29) the Mayor and press will be joining us at CPS for the official Chain Cutting Cermony. The ceremony will begin at 6 (sorry for the conflict with dubz but that was when the mayor was available). Please join us and show support for the sport and the city which allowed this course to happen.

Here's a copy and paste of the Press Release:

July 27, 2010

PRESS RELEASE

CHAIN CUTTING CEREMONY

Schenectady’s Central Park Disc Golf Course is open and fully operational. We will have an official “Chain Cutting Ceremony” on Thursday July 29th, 6:00pm at the Disc Golf Kiosk, corner of Ptl Arthur Chaires Lane and Central Parkway. Hon. Brian U. Stratton, Mayor of Schenectady, will conduct the official opening of the course.

The 18 hole course, the first of its kind in the immediate Capital District, was installed as joint effort of the City and County of Schenectady, the Schenectady Disc Golf Club, Inc. and several local businesses and individuals who contributed the funds necessary. The course is open to the public and there is no charge to play.

There will be a disc golf demonstration immediately after the ceremony. For additional information about the ceremony, please contact Bob Hoffman at 370-3743. And for additional information about the sport of Disc Golf go to http://www.pdga.com

"There will be a disc golf demonstration immediately after the ceremony."

So are they just going to follow the dubs groups around? :)

Sounds like a good plan... we demonstrate plenty.

I'll be there, and early this time, unless there's an even worse accident on Rte 7 that delays me an hour and a half this time :-P

Sounds like a good plan... from what I've seen the two times I've been to the Thursday Dubz, you guys demonstrate plenty :mrgreen:

I'll be there, and unless there's an even worse accident on Rte. 7 during rush hour, I'll be early this time :roll: .

Modified Layout

1-5, 10-18

Still flows pretty well and it eliminates 4 holes.

Sound Good?

Good idea Kenji. Maybe even a no money dubs, if a lot of people want to try it it could get confusing.

It's not hard to let those that want to play for $$ to do so. You only get paid out if you pay in but don't have to play for $$ if you don't want to. So everyone encourage some new person to come to dubs thursday. One of Peter and mine's coworker is planning on coming for HER 1st time to play with us. If anyone see those 3 girls that were out playing last thursday tell them to come play no $$ dubs with us tomorrow. They were really into it. I heard them yell at the disc which way to go. It made me laugh.

A couple of newbies will be there. Greg Gibbons and his buddy plan on coming. I've been in contact with Greg as I have one of his lost disc. Yay our local disc golfer base is growing pretty well.
