A big thanks to all who helped out, either with their labor, encouragement, positive vibes or moral support. I'll be quite proud to go back to the next Parks Department meeting to let the city know about the generosity of the disc golf community and your willingness to improve this city park for the benefit of all. This is how you grow the sport!!!
