This isn't a tourney, hence the thread location, although i'm not opposed to including some sort of competition.

The neighborhoods of Sylvan Hills & Capitol View are putting together the 1st annual Spring Forward Festival @ Perkerson Park on Saturday March 27th, 2010.
This is a city festival, like every neighborhood in the city of Atlanta has ... think Inman Park Fest, Cabbagetown's Stomp N' Chomp, Midtown's Dogwood Festival, etc... but, this is the 1st year for the festival so it will be on a smaller scale. No vending is the key so the arts & crafts booths will be absent.
This festival will feature beer, concerts (@ the pavillion), several booths, pies....and most importantly, disc golf. This is the 1st year so it's starting small, they are expecting a few hundred people. I'm planning on having a disc golf booth with info about disc golf in general, the ADGO and the course @ Perkerson. I want to setup holes 8-17, complete with baskets (looking to borrow some metal if possible) and signage. I want to run clinics throughout the day. And any other ideas on things to include are appreciated -- we have free reign on what to include in the festival, which will run from 12pm - 7pm.
So -- i'm looking for everyone that's available to come hang out @ the park that day. This is potentially huge exposure to hundreds of people who've never seen DG. And we can stake our claim to playing a core part in what could evolve into a major city festival in the next few years.
I'm looking for friendly people that are interested in helping with clinics or working a booth to talk about the sport. Or just come out and play. And you can drink beer and listen to free music.
More info soon as its still in the planning stages.
