Atlantic Course

Postby ghstinshll » Sun Apr 22, 2007 9:14 pm

Hey guys, I ran into a guy from Atlantic today who has done a "Norwalk-caliber job of fund raising". Actually, I was j ealous of his donors! :shock:

:D Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing more in the future.... I just wanted to share what I heard. Sounds like this summer it might get done!

No reason to be jealous, Norwalk compared to Atlantic is like compairing apples to oranges, look at how many busness they have verses Norwalk. We did one hell of a job

$1,000.00 :o woooooo, Now that would have been nice. Atlantic has alot of busness. They by far sould be able to put in one hell of a course. If Norwalk has 30 buseness, Atlantic has atleast 300 (counting all the small ones too).

They have a beautiful City Park that is pretty big with a lot of mature trees. If my memory serves me I also remember a big hill. I'll bet they can put in a real nice course.

I haven't been there for a long time. When I used to go on RAGBRAI we stayed there once or twice.

Atlantic is a pretty nice town. It's probably close to Indianola in size. I don't remember the park, but the golf course is beautiful.

First you have to find the lost city to play it... :lol:
Here is a brief history of fundraising in Atlantic;
Kiwanis, Rotary Club, Lions, YMCA have each pledged $1000.
Cass County Endowment grant at $2000.
Wal-mart grant at $500.
And between hole sponsorships ($200 ea.), smaller donations and
individual donations another 1500+ has been added.
Over $8000 has been raised and I need about $2600 more.

My biggest deterrent right now is to much overtime at work. It keeps me away from the primetime fundraising hours. I can't do much some days when I don't get home til 6. But I have a goal and will get it done.

Does anyone know if this course is done or if it ever got off the ground? Doing a road trip this weekend and would be driving by.

Atlantic's disc golf course is now ready for play, although only from rec tees on grass with temporary signs. Concrete tees,rec and advanced, should be done in 4 to 6 weeks. We have elevation, mature hardwoods and water. BRING all your shots. http://www.mapquest.com/maps/l=41.39646 ... 1193:0::/e
