This Sunday, November 8 at 10am We are having a huge random doubles event at our new course at Grand Vue Park in Moundsville West Virginia. It is a championship length course that plays 9000ft!!!!!! If you have any questions you can text me at 843-696-1599. Please pass on the word to anyone you think might be interested.
Yo Christina, did you get the chance to play anywhere in the area yet? It's starting to warm up outside. Feel free to get in touch with me when you're free to play anytime. You're more than welcome to play in our weekly doubles at Forked Run on Sundays.
On behalf of Juliana Korver, I am honored to announce her inaugural ladies-only disc golf event: Juliana Korver Presents La Vie en Rose.
This unique event will take place February 14-15, 2009
at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL.
In Juliana’s words:
"Are you curious why this disc golf adventure has the name that it does? Literally La Vie en Rose translates to “the life in rose”. The English equivalent to this is “life through rose-tinted glasses” or even “life is rosy”.
If someone looks at something through rose-tinted glasses, they see only the pleasant parts of it. It is a way of life. It is an attitude that I aspire to maintain.
La Vie en Rose is a disc golf event that intends to combine many of the pleasant tournament aspects that we have experienced over the years as well as present new ones that will create a wonderful, memorable and rosy weekend.
This event is about warm fuzzies, feeling good and friendship. I hope that you all can experience the weekend through rose-tinted glasses and perhaps even take the attitude home with you to help you appreciate all that is good in life.
This will truly be a unique weekend that I hope and expect you will love."
Juliana has made the initial event announcement in person at the U.S. Women’s Disc Golf Championships and on the PDGA discussion board. For lots more information visit the tournament website:

Unfortunately you won't have much luck buying discs around Parkersburg. Your best bet would be at Reedsville Country store/gas station. Some of my friends have boxes of discs to sell when they're at Forked Run playing the weekly doubles on Sundays. It starts at 2-2:30pm. Closest places to buy your discs would be Dunahm's in Clarksburg and a few places in Columbus, OH. I usually order mine online from Disc n' Dat or Disc Golf Center.
Looks like you need a new home course in Parkersburg! I'd suggest Forked Run State Park in Reedsville OH if you haven't played there yet. The Mountwood Park in P'burg and Broughton Nature Preserve in Marietta OH are both great if you want courses that are a bit lesser demanding since most of the baskets placements at Forked Run are set up at the longest pin placements right now.
