THUNDER BAY – Events – The First Ever, Right Deadly, Birch Point Disc Golf tournament will be held on Saturday (September 15th) at 11AM at Birch Point at Boulevard Lake. Karen Saunders shares, “In the summer of 2010, Thunder Bay had its first public disc golf course built, with the support of the City of Thunder Bay. The course is located at Birch Point Park at Boulevard Lake and by all accounts, the 18-hole, par three course is stellar”.
“If you’re not familiar with the game, drop by the course to take a look – it is basically a flying disc (aka frisbee) game in which players throw a disc at a target (basket). Similar to golf, the person to hit the targets in the least number of throws wins”.
It promises to be fun for spectators and players of all ages and abilities. $25 will get you a custom tournament disc, lunch, prizes for winners, tears for losers and an after party at the Hodder Tavern. To register, stop by the Loop at the corner of Red River Rd. and Court St.
Tee off is 11 am. Registration will also be open on event day starting at 10 am.
