I moved to the Charlotte area in 2017, specifically, for the Disc Golf scene. I took my retirement and have thoroughly enjoyed becoming part of the Charlotte Disc Golf Club. I currently spend much of my time coordinating with Tournament Directors for future events/Tournaments in our area, or getting volunteers to assist on bigger projects and maintaining various courses as needed. I was very much involved, with helping our Operations Director, prepare Hornets Nest Gold for the 2019 DGPT finals.

I see a very bright future ahead for the CDGC, and I enjoy making our presence known better on social media and through my contacts in the sport. I want to see us develop a more robust campaign to attract and keep our members/future members informed of current and future events in a broader method.
