I just volunteered to put on 2 sessions (possibly 3) of a clinic for 40+ teenage kids for the "After 5 Program" and need some help. Don't have firm dates yet, but it will be on Tues or Thus ... their program runs from June 21st - July 16th, so two dates in that range. More info on that soon.
Location = Atlanta Metropolitan College ... the school on Metropolitan 1/2 mile from Perkerson Park. Would be approximately 7pm-9pm. They got nice big fields; i'll supply all the baskets.
This is the same thing we ran two years ago for those of you that helped with that.
Also looking for any old discs we could use at the clinic -- if you have any really old, crappy, super beat plastic you never throw please consider donating it.
PM me if you would like to help or have old plastic. I'd like to have a crew of 6-7 people for this.
They have us down for two dates. Both will be on Thursdays and I'm waiting to get an email with the 2nd date ... 1st one will be Thursday June 24th. And then one of the following 3 thursdays, TBD soon.
Please let me know if you can make it or have extra discs. I ordered 30 discs from Gateway so am just a few short.
I think in disc golf it is more that they get the false expectation that they should equal or better you right of the bat. I guess because most only play with their boyfriends or whatever but that is who they compare their scores to and get discouraged and never attempt tournaments.
Once they see another woman play they either realize that they are better or only so much worse and actually get a goal to shoot for.
For non disc golf...I am just as clueless as the rest of us.
Update -- the person running this JUST called to let me know that they need to reschedule to July 8th. That's right, a whole 4 hours of lead time....sorry if anyone is inconvenienced by this, its coming from them not me.
