The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

The other day, my friend John and I were shooting a round when he mentioned the idea of a clean up your course/park day. A bunch a people, disc golfers and non players would descend on their local park to give it a good going over. Spend the morning cleaning up, have a lunch, then play in the afternoon. It would be a great way to get your local park looking good and get others to play disc golf.
What do you think? Can we do something like this?

At league, offer a disc/discs to whoever brings in the most trash during league round.

BY weight, volume or cigarette butt count.

A3 has done that a lot, just add it to the weekly doubles and give out bags. Everyone will pick up trash as they play. Payout with club Merch. If you have a club and a league.
Great ideas. Do you think we could get enough people to commit to a single where it happens all across the country? I know that's thinking big, but with the power of the internet and this site, here's hoping!
I always carry a plastic shopping bag in my golf bag to collect trash along the way. I cannot stand seeing trash on the course or anywhere for that matter.
We have had clean up the park days in the past. Some things to think about are, to be careful. Wear thick rubber gloves when cleaning up parks. You have no idea (or maybe you do) on what people leave behind. The last park we cleaned up was in the bad part of town. Trash included used syringes, used condoms, and other dangerous materials.
Also, let the parks department know that your group is cleaning up the park so they may make arrangements to remove the trash as soon as it is collected or it will make it's way back onto the ground.
Dude,
post this over at "the Herd" and some of your other clubs....Let's get the word out to some of our fellow huckers!
Do not throw your alluminum cans in the recycle bin. Save them and take them to the recycle center yourself. They pay cash in Pa. by the pound. Last year I made ober $800.00 when I turned in my cans. I had a box truck full. It took 2 years to collect that many cans, but if you get the word out to family and friends to save them for you, it does not take long. So far this year I probably have 500 pounds. That is a couple of baskets for your course or a good donation to you or a charity of your choice. I have my son on the band wagon now at his college. He is amazed at the amount of cans that he has collected in his first semester. For him, it is money for more beer at the Frat house. LOL

Great idea. Imagine what we could do for the courses!
