UPDATE: Due to the possibility of inclement weather, the Pocatello/Chubbuck Mayors’ Youth Advisory Council’s Fall Disc Golf Scramble has been cancelled. The council plans to reschedule the event for Spring 2018.
ORIGINAL RELEASE: Any day you can find discs flying at the Upper Ross Park Disc Golf Course. On October 14, the golfers will be taking to the links for a good cause.
With a shotgun start at 1 p.m., the Pocatello/Chubbuck Mayors’ Youth Advisory Council, will be kicking off the group’s Fall Disc Golf Scramble. Local high school students are invited to be a part of the two-player team scramble with best ball format. The event is organized into guy, girl, and mixed divisions. Golfers will also be entered into drawings to win raffle prizes.
The entry fee is $20 and discs can be rented for a $5, refundable deposit. The money raised will help to offset the cost of council members attending leadership conferences as well as fund the group’s service projects in the community. Previously, council has performed a clean-up of the City Creek Trail system, made and donated blankets to Portneuf Medical Center cancer patients on behalf of Joey’s Blankets of Love, Hope and Courage, and conducted a pet supply drive for the Pocatello and Chubbuck animal shelters.
Interested disc golfers can register in person at Infinite Discs, 2445 South 5th Ave B, Monday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Payment will be accepted by cash only. The registration deadline is Thursday, October 12. Golfers under 18-years-old must have a parent’s signature on the registration form.
