Thats where we are at. Don't get me wrong, we are doing ok, the support we have gotten is amazing. We have gotten small donations, business sponsors, folks handing me a 20$. We have had friends offer to give us radio time, do an article in The Sentinel. Local disc golf clubs have stepped up…yes I am talking about you Top of The Hill and the gang at Devens. My Mom threw us a donation , and my son who does not play donated to help support the cause. My ex dropped some ching!
And so now we want to wrap this up. I WANT to wrap this up. Our goal was 5000.00$ and we have raised about half that. And while I have been pestering the disc golf world to chip a few bucks, the locals have been putting in the time and sweat cutting and clearing the back 9. These guys see a fairway where most just see trees. They imagine killer drives where none now exist. They have already seen that big putt you will hit next year on Hole 12! And they have also seen that nasty roll away…The locals at Otter Brook are putting in the time, the effort and their own money to make this happen. And for selfish reasons. Very selfish reasons
We want one of the best courses in New England in our back yard.
And as selfish as that may be, we also want to share it with the rest of New England. For free. Any time you want. And not free with purchase…Free Free. And then you can go from Otter Brook and check out Tully, or Pinnacle. Throw down the hill at Sunappe, hit Wilton, or go check out the new Eric McCabe course in Manchester. Wednesday?…Play league at Top of The Hill (tell Marty I said Hi!). There is a 9 hole over in Brattleboro and if you are feeling adventerous head over to Willmington to play with the guys at Beaver Lanes. All this is within an hour or so of Otter Brook.
So back to Jerry Maguire…
If you are part of this disc golf community…Show us the money. You know you and your friends are going to come play when we are an 18 hole course. Show us the money! Seriously… think about what we are asking! Please give us money to buy baskets so we can bust our ass to give you an exceptional course to play. For Free.
And I have to to think that is worth a couple bucks!
