 The UPCOMING EVENTS section is getting BIG!
I am thinking about moving the UPCOMING EVENTS section to the website, with a link in the newsletter.  Let me know your feedback on this.  This section is dedicated to the weekly and monthly events at YOUR local course.  When you are traveling and want to play draw-doubles at a new course you can find what's happening in this section.

 Make other athletes aware of disc golf!

We moved up 20 places to 130th, keep the site activity up.  By just doubling this activity would place us in the TOP 50!

If we finish the month in the TOP 10, disc golf will be noticed by 914,776 other sports teams (as of today) and millions of players who are on those teams. 

Each week give back 10 seconds by visiting PAR-TWO and clicking on the "Tips and Drills" section.  Then feel free to visit the rest of the site.

eTeamz also awards three prizes each month. If we are a winners PAR-TWO will contribute more to the growth of disc golf.  We could:

  • Hand out discs at the course to new players.
  • Sponsor/host an event.
  • Buy a basket or two for a park to to introduce disc golf
  • Giveaway discs to the users that got us there.  If we win the 60,000 ePointz category I will order 100 PAR-TWO discs in the Elite-Z or CE editions and the first 100 registered members that request one will get it, and shipped free.
