Here's a little story about a Boys and Girls club, and other community partners, installing a local disc golf course.

The Thursday Rec League made it in the Real Deal section of the August 11th Citizen Real Deal Section. It was listed as one of the 14 things you can do in Ottawa for $5 or less.

Item 12. Flying High, Learn to play disc golf - you walk around a course throwing special discs at targets - at the Kanata Disc Golf Club. Thursday recreational league costs just $5 a night, including basic skills clinic and a round of disc golf with discs supplied. At 6pm until Aug. 30. odgc.ca

There's a plan in the works to have a bunch of letters printed on core-plast (just the same as the current letters) allowing us to post new messages every week (keepin' it fresh, yo.). Watch that space!
