North Side Chain Gang Mission

The North Side Chain Gang is a club of Houston area disc golfers who feel that the way to improving disc golf is to donate time and resources in the effort to earn more public acknowledgment of the sport and its wealth of talent on the North Side of Houston. Home to some of the state's most talented players, and some of the best courses in the state, the game is little more than a vastly popular underground sport to the community.
Through restoration and improvement projects using funds that are properly managed by the club and its officers, and raised through charitable events, minis, and leagues, the sport will grow within the area, and gain popularity and credibility through the good public relations built by donations on behalf of the club.
Equally, the club also believes that the future of the sport is its youth, and that there is a growing need to bring credible communtiy programs to recruit future stars of tommorow.
Meetings will be held on the first Thursday of every month, and wll have a location announced on this site. The first Saturday of every month will be a work day on one of our area courses that fall under our charter.
Membership Dues are $20 a year. All monies collected by the club are spent on projects that benefit disc golf in North Houston and beyond.
Club President: Matt Stillwagon "Mr. Blue"
Club Vice President: "Infamous" Seth Johnson
Club Treasurer and IT Support: Mark "Dutch" Olden

If you have not checked out the HFDS message board lately, you should. Recently, the Chase has posted that he will be starting a disc golf club @ the College Park High School. He posted it, and I told him we would be glad to help in any way shape or form.
A couple of posts later, JAY READING left him a post to see if he could get the guy started on the EDGE program! Pretty cool. I'm going to Conall's school Sports Day. He is meeting this author who writes about kids and different sports. Conall's teacher wants the author to meet C and learn about disc golf. I'm tellin' ya, if we can get together as a group and get kids involved, this area can start to get the draw and support it has desperately needed!

Jim, Thanks for all the work at SV. Can't wait to see it at the mini. Give me a call next time. I'll bring some tools and whatnot Sunday if you want to do some more clean up. Again, Thanks.

Jim Kelly called me up today. He informed me of some great news regarding Spring Valley. Jim spent the day taking down some of the invisible branches, added a significant amount of trash cans, and reinstalled a bench on one of the holes.
He also seems to have made significant headway with the SV workers and they gave him permission to do all of this including the tools, a cart, and pretty much anything he could get his hands on!
Jim has really stepped up and taken his home course to heart here. Honestly, I think this is the kind of stuff we have been looking for. I hope this example along with Justin's example at Bear Branch, in addition to the minis, and other hard work that has been done to date stokes some people for the up coming year for NSCG! Everybody give a thanks to Jim when you see him next time.

Also, I went out to oak Meadows today. It still is closed to the public. I pulled up and there were two cops with horses about to walk around the course.The course looked to be very maintained and looked beautiful. Its ashame that we can't play it. There was not even one car in the parking lot and that was around noon. A whole lot of BS.

Thanks to all the players that came out in support of the NSCG. Was a nice turn out of people. Sorry to Matt and his dad for screwing up the score. They Finished -6, tied with CJ and Jim. I promise it will not happen again. It was a sweet day.

A HUGE thank you to the guys who came out and supported the mini yesterday. We raised $200 for the improvements fund. This takes the fund to $400 thus far. Particular thanks to Dutch and Justin who helped me with all the dirty work that goes into making an event like this work smoothly.
Even more special than the event was the follow up round @ Bear Branch. Most of the Southies stayed for a round of flip doubles. We had 25 people show for that event. The payout was $50 between two teams. What a blast! We had to shotgun start at the Branch! Not often you get to do that. Thanks again guys, you all did the club proud.

If you're an Int player, no one should have a problem with you playing Int, regardless of where you "normally" play.

On the kid & adult topic: since the adult skill level can be all over the map I think many of them might end up being essentially singles rounds. But I still think you need to make the team play in the highest rated players division.

However, the topic of a kid & adult team division is interesting. I wonder if it would even the playing field if you played that division as alternate-shot instead of best-shot. That definitely keeps it from being a singles round.
Comment by Mr. Blue on January 9, 2009 at 11:18pm
so take that instance, should conall and I play up or not? I'd love to have all the kids/adult teams together in the same division. In your opinion, is that a good idea? I think therefore we should. I got a call from a few people, and the reviews were split. Again, I'm rated to Intermediate, but usually play advanced. For me, this could very possibly be a singles round, against a bunch of doubles. Honestly Erik, what do you think? I love these kinds of discussions.
