The Friends welcome members of the Delaware Disc Golf and its local chapter Cape Henlopen Disc Golf, as well as the Schumaker Pond Disc Golf Group. They participated in the past two year’s events and are volunteering for this year’s event as well. They have agreed to demonstrate, assist and play a round with attendees.
The event is open to everyone ages 6 and up, and a $10 registration fee applies. Registration begins at 8 a.m. The first 30 participants will receive a free golf disc from INNOVA Disc Golf. The demonstration session starts at 8:30, followed by a practice session, a closest-to-the-pin contest at 9:30, and a 9-hole round with a professional starting at 10. Awards presentation is planned for noon or as soon as everyone has finished their round.
Parking will be at the basketball courts. For more information, call 302-858-6127.
