The Camp Fortune disc golf course needs your help!

Is there a particular hole at Camp Fortune that speaks to you? Is there one that you feel needs some special attention with regards to clean up?

Now’s your chance to take matters into your own hands!

Adopt a hole and give it the personal touches you think it needs.

Please post here or PM me to discuss which hole would be best suited to you.


Adopted holes to date:
Claus - Hole 1
Dawn - Hole 2
Twirly – Hole 9
Julz - Hole 10
Paul and Robyne – Hole 11
BBP - Hole 12
Rolly – Hole 13
Arthur - Hole 15
Ben - Hole 16

Awesome!

what are some examples of things we can do?

put patio stones in? Another type of tee pad adjustment?

weed whacking? shrub/small tree removal?

tee signs/post with something on it?

Put Arthur down for hole 15,

and Dawn would like to adopt number 2, she thinks it's cute. Wink



This is a very timely post from Chuck. As TD I received the official word from the PDGA today that the Capital Classic 2006 is approved for July 8/9 at Camp Fortune.

More details will be posted tomorrow in the Capital Classic thread, but I would like to encourage you all to grab a hole, help make it special, and have your efforts shown off to the Ontario disc golf community when they arrive in July.

Any little bit you can do to help get this course ready for our annual summer tournament would be greatly appreciated.

I had an idea for the CF course, which I think is needed. What we need is tee-pad markers. I think the best way to make them would be to make cylinder shaped objects about 6-10 in high. Im thinking using a tree (one thats already fallen over) and cutting its trunk into little cylinder shapped objects about 6-10in tall. Paint them 2 colours for each hole, and have 2 pair on each hole. What you all think,

Something along the lines of this shape,

I dont own a chainsaw as I live in the Glebe, nor do I have many trees in my lot,
With these markers, tee pads would be locatable, and easily movable for our on the fly adjustments to the course,

Also Kiwi I can help out on the CC days no prob, and all day for various stuff, just let me know, its not a prob.

Hey Rolly/Chuck, I have a plenty'o cedar (which last forever outside) and a chainsaw. Let me know how many are needed and I will make it so. I'm assuming 36?

Hey, Roxie, want to show up at the course some day with that chainsaw?
Hole 11 has lots of deadfall worth cutting...

Sweet!

Good on you, Kiwi, for taking this on.

You want pet urn tee markers? That's different.

Those are all excellent examples of things you can do. As well, pin placement, in some cases, will also be within your control.

Tree removal will be subject to approval.

Rolly's idea for tee markers is great. There is enough deadfall at CF to use.

True story:

I dated a girl who, when I first went to her house, asked if I wanted to see her dog. I agreed. She pulled down an urn not unlike those. I was stunned and totally at a loss. I finally came up with, "He's not very energetic."

It didn't go over as well as I'd hoped...

I dated a girl whose last boyfriend died while climbing in Canmore. She wore a little "urn" around her neck that had his ashes in it. She told me she used to have two of these "urns" but she ate the contents of the other one, so she could always "have him in her". I fought the urge to explain grade 5 Science and the wonders of the digestive system.

You could have asked her if it's name was "Dusty". laughing

Or mentioned that it didn't look like a dog that was too difficult to clean-up after. laughing Unless it's windy. laughing laughing

...back on topic, I wouldn't change the "type" of tee pads at your adopted hole at CF. Having to go from concrete/patio stones to dirt would really suck.
