Club officers had never intended for baskets to be referred to by a color however many people saw them as white (short) and blue (long) pins. We are getting ready to update teesigns and look to have a clearer naming scheme for the course. With that we all agreed the pins should be named Pin A, Pin B, and so on moving forward. Max will change this on Udisc now and the new signs will reflect the change.

GVDG Kids: Oakwood is planning another clinic and looking at running a fundraiser event to raise money for additional baskets for their campus course. Thank you Pat Mallette for donating your DEPC winnings to get new discs for GVDG Kids. Eastern Elementary recently got some disc golf equipment and GVDG Kids may be able to assist them with teaching a class. Beth Payne has an idea of combining a kids class/clinic with the Friday Flex or similar event next summer.
