I spent some time after getting food in the belly looking over future dates for Aloha.
We will not move to before the Windy River Open
Third weekend of April- Windy River Open
4th weekend of April (last full weekend)- Ren Faire at Whitman which brings alot of people to the area. Pros to it is that some hotel space is available. The big con is people would have to choose between WRO and ASC for two weekends in a row of travel is too much for most of us. It is also the wone big dog show that WW does...and there is something else going on.
Also to maintain the course we need the weekend before ASC to work work work...this would make it so we locals could not support our big brothers up in Tri Cities.
Second weekend in May...mothers day (not going to tread there) and then to top it off it is Balloon Stampede Weekend....hotels are even harder to find.
Third weekend of may usually the weekend before Memorial Day is well in the same boat as WRO and ASC would be...having to make a choice between two events. I am sure LCO likes the weekend event before the event to make sure that everything is ready...maintenance wise. Oh and its the graduation week for the two big colleges in town.
Memorial Day weekend (lco) and even if it was open....we would not take it for we feel as a club it is a family weekend and opening of true camping season.
June is out of the question due to the number of disc events and club member commitments.
July and August...nope don't wish to kill you in the heat...disc golf is suppose to be fun.
Of course things change (two new hotels are in the planning/final city approval stages...but the best thing is to reserve a hotel early
or find a yard to camp in. I will work with the city about getting us something in the future...hopefully at FWW.
Oh moving before Windy is not on the table due to the course...spring just has not had its time on the trees, flowers, grass, etc.
Thank you again to all you players who make Aloha such a blast to be a TD of.
