Fun day today.

We had 52 non-ODGC members out playing today, and this isn't counting the wives and kids escorted by ODGC members, which there were several.

Some of the highlights of attendees:
- Kauffmann brought out his work buddies and some of their girlfriends. They seemed to have had a good time. They were smiling.
- The owner of Alcove's son was out there today and he had Mike Adams nephew with him.
- A bachelor party came out with their Ultie skills.
- Bridget Mallon Tweetted us https://twitter.com/OttawaDGC

Mike Seaby, of Daredevil Discs, dropped off a whack of golf discs that we are going to use as our demo disc box. We now have a full line of putters, mids and drivers. This was awesome today. They also left us 50 misprint putters to use as wish (I've been giving them out).

Twirly, of the Ultimate Disc Golf Store, dropped off the newest and latest plastic for us to give a throw. This was really fun. Liking the Latitude line. The Blizzards are a blast as well.

The grass is long out there and for most of the day it was wet. If you're coming out tomorrow I'd recommend long pants at least.

A round of 9 is taking 45-60 minutes to play.

Good round fellas. That was fun

Good design for what you are working with Ben E & Geoff. Really like #1 and 3 longs. Drop in birdie on 1 longs was my best hole of the day

We had another 53 non-club members pick up a disc and give'em a toss. We met some non-member DGers who can throw already. It was a good.

I'll put out a full report/story in the next couple of days.

I think I can speak for everyone in saying:

Thank you Ben and Geoff for your efforts and for sacrificing your weekend to promote disc golf in Hog's Back Park. A bunch of people got some really good exposure to disc golf and lots of kids (big and small) walked away with a disc in their hands.

Well done.
