What do you think?

Re: April meeting and events

Hi Richard,

Carefully now since this is going out to the entire group of over 100 people...


From a club president perspective
I've heard this idea mentioned before. The problem is that we don't have poles for every hole. Maybe half. It would be easy and cheap enough to make some more temporaries out of PVC pipe (would that hold up?) if we wanted to go that route. I do want to be careful with club funds since we already lost our club fundraiser tournament date and aren't running leagues, and who knows for how long. The club will not be taking in nearly as much this year but still have all the expenses such as the insurance.

My understanding of the situation at Dexter is that people were parking at and blocking the entrance gate and subsequently blocked access to the plant. Although, since it is a state park, the park was officially closed, the gate closed, and a notice posted. The disc golfers should not have been there at all, so that situation was bound to get shut down sooner or later.

For Willamette, the city parks department was contacted and they said they are not shutting it down. I have been out there almost daily. Yes, I play alone and sanitize the whole time and before I leave... I hardly ever see more than a couple other people on the course when I am around. I am not seeing groups of people out there except for very rare occasion, and they are generally spaced out. So, I don't think we're giving off as bad of an impression as some places have with loaded courses and/or in groups of more than a couple people who aren't even spaced out.

I have heard of parks in Portland and saw pictures of folks still out in groups, and not even just 2 or 3 people and standing tightly together. That is noticeable from a long distance and a bad look. I heard about the baskets at Pier. I do think it most likely that it was someone who specifically wanted to stop disc golfers from playing and it is not the slightest bit of a surprise to me that something like that would happen around Portland. Luckily, so far that is a one time occurrence that we know of and this is not Portland, so I think we can reasonably hope for the best.



My personal perspective
I will risk sharing my opinion. I do not support pulling the baskets. For me, the sound of the chains is sweet, sweet music. No tone pole or post and can setup (played both) can ever match the feeling I get from the sound of a good putt solidly hitting chains. I am a wacko - I full well understand this - but I dream of that sound. I know not everyone takes this virus seriously. I know not everyone is intelligent. Therefore, I know that we can't control everyone and some won't use preventative measures. As usual, the few could ruin it for all, which could be used to make a case to pull the baskets.

Anyone that knows me or sees my Facebook posts knows that I am absolutely taking this pandemic seriously, but I also fully believe that there is a middle ground between the group of folks that think it is all a hoax and don't want to take any precautions and the group of people that thinks we should all be locked in our homes. Disc golf is the only thing I really care about besides things like career and family and most of my exercise comes from it. It is an integral part of my life and my wellness plan. Can I live without it? Sure, if I have to, but in my opinion there is no reason that with the smallest amount of concern and common sense that we cannot throw and be safe. One could argue that, if it is safe enough for the authorities to allow all kinds of businesses to stay open, then it is safe enough to go outside and throw. I am back to work to run testing in order to meet manufacturing dates - a purely monetary decision. I noticed today that a shoe repair store was open. Essential is apparently totally subjective, and in my world disc golf and the sound of banging chains is essential to both my mental and physical wellness.

Another thought is that this is an opportunity for the disc golf community to be leaders. This is a non-contact sport and we don't share gear - except the basket. We have an opportunity show people that it is possible to be a conscious and concerned citizen and still enjoy at least some of our favorite things - just by being a little bit sensible. Like I said before, don't go out in groups, maintain spacing, sanitize after every hole and before you leave the course, and don't touch your face in between. That is really all it should take to be safe and stay healthy and not spread the virus.



This is an open discussion since it was sent to the group . All may feel free to respectfully chime in with well thought out comments that add to the discussion. We can vote on it if we get enough feedback that the group thinks we should remove the baskets.


Best regards,

Rob

Dear disc golf family,

The Willamette Disc Golf Club (WDGC) is proactively addressing the rapidly developing issues related to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who's been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. WDGC cares about the health and well being of our members and community and in consideration will be using an abundance of caution going forward.

In keeping with the directives handed down by State and Federal leaders to not gather in groups, WDGC tournaments will be postponed until further notice. We plan to reschedule if this doesn’t go on for too long. If it does, then we will carefully select what to cancel in order to reschedule the more important events.

WDGC Leagues will also be canceled until at least April 1, including Sunday doubles. I thought long and hard about trying to schedule groups and tee times and using PayPal and all that, but it just isn’t worth it for me to jump through all those hoops when we don’t even get to hang out together – which is most of the fun of it! We can still play disc golf; it just will not be disc golf organized by WDGC for the time being.

I think disc golf is one of the few things that can still be positive in these times and may be an integral part of many people's coping as we get through this. Schedule yourselves to get together in small groups, use fist bumps or foot taps instead of shaking hands, don’t touch each other’s discs for a while (clear your own putts and before the next disc touches yours), don’t pass the smokes, frequently use hand sanitizer and wash your hands, as some examples.

I am not a medical professional and those are only a couple things I thought of specific to disc golf, but will help in any case. More information on how to protect yourself (and others!) can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html.

I really am sorry to do this, and am aware some folks do not agree, but it is the right thing for the club to do with our current knowledge. We will reevaluate at the end of these 2 weeks.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and healthy.

Ice Bowl, other news

Robert Voss
 

Hey disc golf fam,

Final reminder about the Ice Bowl charity benefit tournament for Linn Benton Food Share this weekend. You can register online at https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/Wild_Willy_Ice_Bowl_2020, or just come on down to Willamette Saturday morning. Registration is 8 AM to 8:45 and we want to get the first round going by 9 AM. For $25 you get a disc of choice, a nested mini set, and a chili and cornbread lunch. We will also have a free raffle for all players featuring a Latitude 64 bag donated by Play It Again Sports Corvallis. We will also have an apparel vendor out there, CrackerJack Apparel. Not this time, but I'm hoping to get Tim to come out to a couple of the PDGA tournaments and custom print shirts on site for us.

In other news, I am moving the President's Cup this year. Tomorrow I am talking with the City of Albany about Bryant Park. And a piece of really exciting news, I received a commitment from Block 15 today for the title sponsorship of the President's Cup! Their contribution has increased the minimum added cash to $300!

We had a good turnout and some interesting discussion at the meeting Monday night. Among the regular topics we talked about looking for property for a new course, and about making a push to get paving done at Willamette Park. It's great to see some new faces and fresh ideas.

No Saturday league this weekend due to the tournament. Hope to see a bunch of people out there! Sunday dubs is still on, though - 11 AM at Adair.

Best regards,

Robert Voss

Re: Upcoming WDGC Meeting - Do you have any agenda items to include for discussion?

Kelly Christiansen
 

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was part of the stewart pond course and they have a recreation area out on the South Fork Alsea. They worked with the cycle community to put in some MTB trails  there, so who knows what they might be interested in.

 

Logging Companies: The local motorcycle club has an interesting agreement with Starker Forests that allows them to maintain a set of trails on Flat mountain. This said, when a unit comes up for harvest, the trail gets nuked until they can re-establish it. This isn’t as easy with a disc golf course.

Does anyone have connections to local logging companies?  In addition to Richard's excellent ideas for pursuing city and county land,  we should perhaps also consider private land for a new course ala Newport's Wilder.

 

We could put together a presentation/prospectus for the logging companies.   It might be helpful to get feedback from the company out in Newport to see what they think about the partnership and ideas for how to make it more attractive.  I'd like to know the legal framework behind their permit system. 

 

It's a good time to talk up positive PR to the logging companies.  We could frame a disc golf course as an excellent showcase for selective harvest and multi-use benefits.

Bill,

 

I have a couple of thoughts on the topic of new courses and/or extensions of Willy - from the inside-the-City with City-Support framework.  Clearly there are lots of other options outside the City.

 

1) Talk to the guys who got Willy off of the ground.  Things may have changed in the intervening years, but probably not that much.

2) Review the Corvallis Parks and Rec Master Plan, to refresh our memories of where our goals and purposes align with the City.  Likewise, review our agreement with the City that states what we say we are about - and work to embellish our resume in those areas that align with the Master Plan.

3) Brainstorm some ideas to pitch to the City.

4) Get our data together on course usage, especially families.

4) Pitch the ideas to Jude and Karen, so as to get a read of where we stand, and to get on the agenda for the Parks and Rec board.

5) Pitch the ideas to Parks and Rec board, ask for what would be a path forward.  (My sense is that City owned open spaces are pretty much earmarked as natural areas - so switching to disc golf may actually require a vote of Corvallis residents.  Unless the City is about to get some new open space that hasn't yet been assigned a function.)

 

Richard

P.S. -  my memory is that most of the alignment between the City and us revolves around growing the sport and providing recreational opportunities for community members.  Also being able to close Willy for tournaments is a concession by the City to us, not something that they are particularly interested in.  Thus, if we are wanting a new course to better position us for holding higher tier tournaments, we may want to work with Visit Corvallis and the Chamber of Commerce to build up the economic benefit argument.

P.P.S. - my other sense is that the club leans heavily on only a very few people to do the physical work at Willy and Adair.  Finding out where the additional energy will come from might be another good initial step.

Wild Willy Ice Bowl February 8

Robert Voss
 

Hello all!

We made it past Festivus, and what a grand event that was! The weather turned out amazing and it was a fun layout and fun day. Yet another great job by Greg Johnson! Thank you. I am looking forward to April, as well.

Now our attention turns to the Wild Willy Ice Bowl for Linn Benton Food Share on February 8. Player packs are a disc of choice and nested mini set, as well as a free lunch! We will also have CTP or putting prizes for each division, and a free raffle that all players are entered into that features a Latitude 64 Easy Go Backpack Bag among many other things! We're playing a couple rounds at Willamette in an easier layout, having free lunch between rounds, and having a good time.

All proceed go to Linn Benton Food Share. Let's do our part and make sure Everybody Eats!


If you are not familiar with an Ice Bowl, here is some history of the events:
