Shane’s Cookout and Disc Golf Tournament – 9/10/11 2-6pm

Join me for a cookout and disc golf tournament on Saturday, September 10, from 2-6pm at Seneca Creek State Park. It’s going to be a fun event with activities for all ages, so bring the whole family!  Click here for a downloadable flyer

Disc Golf Tournament 2-4pm
The disc golf tournament will be held at Seneca Creek’s scenic 27-hole disc golf course from 2-4pm. The tournament itself will only cover holes 1-9 (the Orange Loop), and participants will be divided into categories based upon age and experience. Also during the tournament, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the park, the course, and invasive plant species by taking part in Park Quest 2011. Everything you need to participate in Park Quest will be available at the tournament. Park Quest information and worksheets can be downloaded here. If you don’t have a disc we will have them available for you to borrow or purchase. See you at the tournament!

Cookout 4-6pm
After the disc golf tournament there will be a cookout and awards ceremony at the Pheasant Run Picnic Area. The special guest will be Delegate Maggie McIntosh, the Chairman of the House Environmental Matters Committee. You don’t have to participate in the tournament to attend the cookout, so if disc golf isn’t your thing please come to the cookout anyway!

Please RSVP by email to, or by phone to 240-429-2330.
