In By The Bottle's recent support of Leverich Park, and in recognition of their many Disc Golf customers, they are hosting "The First Annual By the Bottle Opener 2009 Disc Golf Challenge." This is a charity event to support the maintenance of Leverich Park.
Sorry disc pros, this isn't a PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) tournament, in fact, beginners, newbies, and all ages are encouraged to come out and learn how to play.
They have an awesome day planned of disc golf with beervana prizes for longest drive, closest to the basket, and the winning foursome. After disc play, there will be lunch and a huge raffle with a guaranteed win for each player included in your green fee. Any additional purchased tickets will also benefit Leverich Park. The awards ceremony will wrap things up.
Even if you don't want to disc golf, you can still plan your own BBQ or picnic! The park is quite beautiful with a woodsy feel in some places, and open play areas in others. If you are golfing, other enjoyable amenities for family members while you're playing the field include playground equipment, a very large covered shelter with two fireplaces, picnic tables, rest rooms, and safe extensive hiking & biking trails.
Vancouver Parks & Recreation did an amazing job renovating this area. What was once a park in question is now a beautiful, flourishing center of activity. The introduction of disc golf to the community also provides the many positive things that also define this up and coming sport: fun, family recreation, fitness, nature, affiliation, and friendship.
