Thanks to everyone who came out - over 120 people came through during the day (about 20-30 non disc golfers) including about 30-40 that were there for the first time or hadn't been in over 5 years.
We gave plaques to the City Recreation and Parks Department, Alpharetta Visitor and Convention Bureau (accepted by David Cox of the Natural Resource Committee),
Craig Dickerson of Decksource.com and Metro Building Products. We also have one for Eagle Scout Bobby Cookson that we'll give to him when he is available.
There were pictures taken by Wade Cauthen from Earth Visions Photography of the awards presentation as well as of the principal players involved in the course changes coming about.
As soon as he sends me the link I will post them here.
There was also a story in the Alpharetta paper about the Open House, and there will be follow up stories both in the paper and online about today's festivities.
Everyone loved the outstanding cold food appetizers (Monster Shrimp, pizza, rum cake, homemade potato salad, and veggies) as well as the food (Chicken and Hangar steak) cooked by Moose - all of which was donated by Jeff Gomez from Anis to go along with burgers and dogs that were slipped inside some gourmet rolls and buns also donated by Anis to keep everyone well fed before or after their round of golf.
The course and new tee signs were well received and were enjoyed by several people in the neighborhood including a couple who came out to see the sport for the first time and they ended up playing a few holes and followed some other groups around while learning about the sport.
There was also photos taken of them and others as well as an interview with Chris Foley and myself which will appear online at Patch.com soon.
Thanks again to everyone involved and thanks to a great start to the new year weather wise and Disc Golf wise to make today a success!
