NDG in the I&M
Hello NDG Friends!
If you haven't already seen it, I wanted to let you know that there was a great article on the front page of today's I&M sports section about Nantucket Disc Golf!
I think Peter did a great job summing up what we have accomplished so far and describing exactly what it is that we're bringing to the Island. Most importantly, he communicated quite well how the environmentally-sensitive, inexpensive, year-round, family-friendly sport of disc golf is a sport that fits in so well with exactly what Nantucket needs.
If you haven't read the article yet, check it out!

Hello NDG Friends!
Are you ready for some disc golf? If so, I've got good news for you...it's go time.
Yes, indeed, after a false start last fall, NDG just this past week completed and signed our MOU with the State and it's time, finally, after two and a half years of preparation, to begin work on the course in the South Pasture! Check out the Massachusetts DCR Press Release here .
The plan right now is to begin actual work on the course mid-April and have all the mowing done by April 30. At that point, we will most likely be bringing in heavy equipment to remove dead trees and clear debris from the course. Then later in the summer, we'll be fine tuning everything and installing the baskets and teepads. At least that's the plan. Throughout this process, we'll need all the volunteers and equipment we can get, as this is going to be a big project.
Please do let me know when you all think would be good days and times to work and I'll do my best to develop a work plan that will accommodate the schedules of as many of you as possible. Will get back with you all here in a week or so with a preliminary plan and by hopefully by then I will have more details as to when specifically we'll be getting out there to begin the work.
I want to thank everyone for their support over the last couple of years. I really am excited that we finally have completed all the required paperwork and I am looking forward to joining everyone out in the South Pasture soon to begin work on this exciting project to bring disc golf to Nantucket!

Just wanted to give you all a quick NDG update and pass along a special invite.
Nantucket Disc Golf lept over yet another legal hurdle this past Wednesday when the BOS approved the newly revised MOU between the Massachusetts DCR and Nantucket. Now, we just have to finish up and sign the NDG/DCR MOU and pass that along to the Building Department for approval. Once we get that, we'll be all set to begin clearing. Cross your fingers!
Also, wanted to let everyone know that John Houck, our course designer, is in town this weekend putting his finishing touches on his design of our course. By Monday night, he should have everything completed and he's expressed interest in having an informal get together then to meet everyone and discuss the project. Here are the details...
Hangin' with Houck
Mon Dec 6 from 5-6:30pm
Drinks and appetizers
No dress code
Come one, come all
Hope to see you guys then...it should be a fun and informative early evening discussing OUR new disc golf course on Nantucket with the legendary Houck himself.

Hello NDG Supporters,
It looks like we've encountered a little legal issue that's going to delay the start of our "Big Clearing" just a bit.
Nantucket Disc Golf is currently working to finish up our Memorandum of Understanding with the State and we expect this to be completed and signed within the next couple of weeks. This is our final obstacle and once we get this out of the way, we'll be ready to roll.
In other news, NDG has just hired a graphic design firm to redesign the nantucketdiscgolf.org website. A lot of very cool things are planned for the site and we expect it to be up and running within a month or so.
Stay tuned for more information regarding the "Big Clearing" and thank you to everyone for your patience and support!
