Hello NDG Friends!

Almost done with the chipping...just a couple of holes left.  A big thanks to Sam and the crew for their hard work over the past week.

Went out with my family and installed eight of the basket sheaths in concrete earlier this week, so all that's left is assembling the baskets, dropping them in the sheaths and locking them up.  Then we'll have eight baskets fully installed on the north side.  The final hole on the north side is yet to be cleared but we hope to get that done within a month.

In other news, we've awaiting the arrival of a sample of a rubber from a company called Fly18.  Fly18 is the premier maker of rubber teepads and pending our being satisfied with the quality of the sample, it looks like we will be purchasing 18 of these teepads for installation on the north 9 holes of the course.

Finally, I wanted to let everyone that if you haven't seen it yet, Nantucket Disc Golf was featured in this month's N Magazine.  A great article that sums up well what we're bringing to the island...a fun, free, family-friendly recreational alternative that can be enjoyed any time of year. 

Check it out HERE...

It turns out I'm headed off island for business for a couple of weeks.  Looking forward to returning in early October and to installing the rubber teepads, and to mowing and getting the north nine holes open by the end of the month.

Hello NDG Friends!

A great week with John.  We marked the final locations for the teepads and baskets on the north nine holes and took a tour of the south half and discussed NDG's future work there.  John also drew maps of the north nine holes to use in creating the individual teepad maps we have commissioned.

NDG is bringing in Sam Myers and Nantucket Yard Guard tomorrow and Friday to do the chipping of the felled trees and limbs.  It's going to be great finally removing all the piles of debris.

Oh, and we also received delivery of our Ben Moore-built bicycle rack today and it looks great...check it out!

No official NDG workdays this week, but come on out tomorrow and/or Friday and lend a hand with the chipping if you can...we'd love to have you!
