It is now official...the inaugural event at Willmore Park WILL be happening for certain! We are 99% sure that we should have all of the agreements with the City of St. Louis finalized by this date and the course 100% installed. If not, the event will proceed as planned with temporary baskets instead. Rest assured that this is only the backup plan and should not need to be utilized. This will be the grand opening of St. Louis' first city DGC! The field will be limited to 90 players, so please let your intentions be known ASAP! ALL participants will receive a commemorative disc, courtesy of Gateway Disc Sports and the St. Louis Disc Golf Club. I will post the flyer VERY soon! Amazing stuff for disc golf in the Gateway to the West!
BTW, Matt Augustin is the one that did all of the work on the tee pad marker stones and next hole arrow stones. Awesome job! Matt and our resident graphics guru, Daniel Doss, will be working together on the hot stamp design for the commemorative disc. I am sure that it will be brilliant!
We just need to say this clearly right now, so there is no question, confusion or debate at the time of the event.
NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED IN ST. LOUIS CITY PARKS.
The St. Louis Disc Golf Club has a permit which allows consumption of alcohol that we provide. That alcohol can only be consumed at the shelter. Period.
So, do not bring your own alcohol to this event and do not, for any reason, leave the shelter with the beer that will be provided at the event. The club is held responsible for any player caught outside of the shelter area with beer that we provided and could result in the loss of our permit with the city. For this reason, any player caught breaking this rule, will be ejected from the tournament without a refund.
Sorry to be the "heavy hand", but it is a necessity for ensuring the future of our relationship with the outstanding City of St. Louis and showing them respect for opening the opportunity for this (and hopefully other) disc golf in the city limits.
Thank you in advance.
