 Volunteer to be a PAR-TWO Hometown Rep.
This is an unofficial position.  I am looking for one or two people from each city or general area to help promote disc golf.  A major city like Columbus could possibly have 4 reps within it.  A PAR-TWO rep would be responsible for organizing local publicity events.  It should take only a few hours a week and half of that time should be near recreational.  Let me know if you are interested and we will exchange emails. jimm@par-two.com
 

 

 Make other athletes aware of disc golf!

We are in 622nd place with 520 points!  That makes our pace to finish the month with 5373 points. 

Visit our site each week when you receive the newsletter.  If we get to the 60,000 point mark we will be in the top category for eTeamz monthly contest!  Even if we don't win, we do win, disc golf will be recognized by millions of athletes!


Each week when you receive this newsletter take 10 seconds and visit PAR-TWO and then click on the "Tips and Drills" section.  Then feel free to visit the rest of the site. 

If everyone receiving this newsletter would just visit the site we would have over 35,000 points each month. Add visiting the "Tips and Drills" section and our total would skyrocket to over 182,000 points per month which would DEFINITELY get disc golf noticed by the millions of athletes at eTeamz.

eTeamz also awards three monthly prizes.

  • One for sites between 20K and 40K points.
  • One for sites between 40K and 60K points.
  • One for sites over 60K points.

Any prize won will help the growth of disc golf.

"Sometimes when I throw everything works out right and other times the disc goes off in a wrong direction. What's going wrong?"

You are probably having trouble keeping focused.  After you get the basics down your mental game is  the biggest factor to a good round.
