Today the team got up early and headed out to the city right after breakfast. With a lot of work to do the team split up with half going to the course site, and half going to a school near the course. At the course the team was able to work together to create a great 9 hole layout. The goal is for the layout to be beginner friendly, but also be challenging for the players who eventually take their game to the next level. Tee pads and basket locations are marked out, and we are ready to start digging holes tomorrow!
In the afternoon the course crew finished up building the tee signs, and went out to buy some bricks and other supplies. The decision was made that natural teepads are the way to go, so we are painting bricks for markers. We also plan to install two sets of teepads on each hole. The kids are so excited about disc golf at our clinics, so we are hopeful many of them will make it out to the course. We are planning a course unveiling for Friday and are looking forward to a great turnout.
The other half of the team went to the school to lead clinics. We worked with about 30 kids for their Phys. Ed. program during the morning, and in the afternoon we worked with another 30 kids who came as part of an after school program that is in place there. The staff who typically run the program told us that normally if they try any other sports the kids just complain that they are not playing soccer, but today they did not mention soccer once! We had the opportunity to share testimonies with them, and hope to see them all on Friday.
All in all it was a great day and we look forward to spending time worshiping and studying the Bible together this evening. If you want to check out pictures and video from the trip check out our facebook page and be sure to like the page while you are there!
