SFDGC Work Party Wrap Up!
June 22, 2010
First of all – Thank you to all the people who came down on Saturday to help with the Golden Gate Park work party. We got almost 40 people volunteering out there, and the course looks great because of it. There was a ton that was done. Here is the quick version of what we accomplished:
* Wood chips, wood chips, wood chips! The course need some ground cover love. The newly chipped paths and pin locations look pro!
* Nets! There were a few nets in disrepair due to vandals. We replaced these, as well as redid almost all of the netting with plastic poles to hopefully avoid more vandalism.
* Paths! We bolstered quite a few of the paths around the course as well as built a new one coming off of the tee box for #8:

Our next work party is Saturday July 17th at 8am! Please RSVP on the Facebook event here:
Looking forward to seeing you all again, on the 17th!

There is much work to be done with our efforts to build a second SF course in McLaren Park. The opposition, Save McLaren Park, is out-organizing us. We need to step it up on showing exactly how much support there is in SF for disc golf. One of the biggest ways we can show our support is by writing letters to Rec and Park Department. Please take the time to send a postcard or letter to the General Manager of the Recs and Park Department, Phil Ginsburg, here:
Phil Ginsburg, General Manager of the Rec and Park Department
McLaren Lodge & Annex
501 Stanyan Street
San Francisco, CA 94117
or send his office an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, remember to BCC email@example.com on any email you send on behalf of the SFDGC.
Here is a sample letter, but we encourage you to send your own thoughts on why a course in McLaren would be a good thing.
Dear Phil Ginsburg,
I want to express my strong support for the disc golf course in McLaren park. Disc Golf is a great free activity that is popular with a wide variety of park users. I ask that you continue your support for this exciting addition to McLaren Park.

Additionally, we encourage you to send a similar email to the Recs and Parks Commission here: firstname.lastname@example.org and Supervisor John Avalos here: John.Avalos@sfgov.org
Golden Gate Park Work Party – Saturday, June 19th
June 11, 2010
It’s PARTY time again.
Work party that is! Our beloved course needs work, and the time is upon us. We are going to be doing work parties on a more regular basis, and this coming week brings the first of many to be had in the near future. Please join us from 9am to 4pm to put some love back into the course. There are nets to be replaced, tanbark to put down around pins, and much much more to do! The future of the Golden Gate course, as well as our chances at getting more courses built in SF, depends on making Golden Gate look GREAT!
