The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

This small charter school in Riddle, Oregon, ran by a Southwest Oregon disc golfer, Al Springer, is on the verge of having its doors shut, leaving special needs students in Southern Douglas County with no external support to graduate and/or succeed!!
We need to band together as disc golfers with a cause and support this small cause! The district has threatened to shut down the alternative education program en lieu of a $50,000 deficit to the state for less students in regular classes for Riddle School District.
Honestly, in a small community such as Riddle, as many other small communities in Southern Oregon, students have nothing better to do for excitement than drink, smoke pot, or have sex, sometimes all three at the same time . . . all these activities are easier done without school to worry about . . .
REC is there as an alternative to encourage these would be drop-outs or social deviants, or just students who cannot handle the added stress of the obvious hurdles in attending Junior High or High School in a small town.
Some of these students are finding a new, exciting community besides the little town of Riddle, in Disc Golfing . . .
Let's show them what disc golfers have to offer!
Watch the video on my page or in videos (REC); post what you have to say here!

You are right with your desire of more info, and you are right, the school needs a lot more than discs, (but discs are sweet, used or not). The school needs to come up with about $ 25,000 this year to stay open.
There are a number of ways to help us towards this goal.

The man to contact would be Al Springer (Executive Director/Coolest Teacher in the World)
Riddle Education Center
PO Box 300
