Discgolf is coming to Revelstoke this September, this time to raise money for community charities.
On September 11th and 12th, the Revelstoke Community Foundation is holding a charity disk golf championship to raise money for the Youth Endowment Fund. Scorecards must be submitted electronically by 10pm on September 12th to qualify for prizes and team scores.
All ages are welcome to take part in this easy-to-play fundraiser. Since the place is only guarded to a limited extent, the players are asked to use the “honor system” for fair competition.
At $ 25 per player, teams of four have an entry fee of $ 100. This money goes directly to the Youth Foundation Fund, which creates grants for organizations that support young people in the community.
The points for each team are counted cumulatively per player and prizes are awarded to the top three teams. If your disc golf skills are rusty, there is also a category for the best-dressed team.
In addition to the structure of the honor system, there are a few basic rules teams must follow:
- The players must shoot from the red tee.
- Shots cannot be repeated.
- Discs must hit the orange hydrants.
- Throws are made from the location where you can find the floppy disk.
- Don’t leave any traces, just footprints.
This socially distant event uses online submissions. An Eventbrite link is available for registrations and payments. Please visit the official Facebook event for more information.
