A Junior Disc Golf Weekend!
What a weekend it was for Eagles Wings Disc Golf. This past Saturday we had 95 junior disc golfers competing in Eagles Wings events held in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Junior only disc golf events are few and far between and it is such an enjoyable experience to see kids come together and get to compete with their peers in events that are all about them! Below you will find a recap of both events along with some pictures. For more pictures and videos check out our Facebook page!
Eagles Wings Midwest Junior Regional
69 juniors ages 5-18 traveled to Earl Brewer Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan for our 2nd Annual Midwest Junior Regional last Saturday. Despite the weather forecast of a 50-70% chance of thunderstorms and lightning, we were blessed with a rain-free day that allowed us to get not only the round, but all the extra games in as well! Many local disc golfers and parents gave up their day to serve the kids, and it was awesome to see it all come together.
All ages played an 18 hole round with different layouts for the different divisions. We had a wide range of ability and experience levels on the course, but it seemed that fun was had by all. There were some great shots throughout the day, highlighted by an ace hit by one of our 5 year old players! In addition to the round we had a mini course, pyramid toss, speed putting, ring of fire, and clinics for the players. On top of all that, thanks to Upper Park Designs and Zuca we were able to give away a bag and cart in the raffle!
We had many sponsors who contributed to this day to make it extra special for the kids, and for that we are grateful! A special thank you to Jacob Stahl of Disc Baron who directed the event and was our title sponsor. We also want to thank our other primary sponsors who helped make the day great for the kids including Innova, Dynamic Discs, Paragon Disc Golf, and Upper Park Designs, and Zuca. We’re already looking forward to next year!
Kenilworth Summer Break Bash
This was our second year running this event at Kenilworth and we are excited to say that it was a success. This event is a smaller, non-sanctioned event we run to give players the chance to play in an event before the big regional event at Sellersville. We had 26 kids come out to compete despite the forecast of rain. We got hit with some rain during the clinic, but the rain cleared and the round was completely dry!
Again this event could not have happened with volunteers and sponsors and we are thankful for all who contributed to the day. This event would not have been what it was without Shawn Overturf of D-Town Disc Golf. D-Town contributed an additional disc per player in the players pack and handled awards for the day. We also had Berean Bible Church come out and provide lunch for all the players AND their families. The Walking Tacos were a big hit!
Next up in the region will be the Mid-Atlantic Junior Regional which we encourage everyone to join us for. You can find more details about the event HERE.
