Since moving to Michigan, I have gotten to know many of the regulars at my new home course. I heard one of the coolest stories last week. We have a guy that walks his dog daily on our course. He’s very aware of the disc golfers, and always waits while we throw before continuing on with his walk. If he is ahead of us, he’ll usually spot. He always collects cans and bottles when he walks (in Michigan, we have 10 cent refunds). I found out the other day that he is collecting the cans to help send a kid to college. He even wants to sponsor a tourney this fall with the leftover can cash, to give back to the disc golfers that leave behind the cans. It’s awesome to hear that this guy is using it for good. I’ve heard stories that this park used to be so bad (drugs, violence, needles) that the cops didn’t even want to come into it. People have said that installing the disc golf course really helped turn things around, and it’s cool to see people respect our sport, even when they don’t play it.
