Coronavirus- Where We Stand

A place for everything else... Talk smack, talk plastic, talk about when you're going to be at the course, and talk about that time you chained out!

Coronavirus- Where We Stand

Postby Ramsfan1 » Sat Mar 28, 2020 8:04 am

We hope everyone is safely dealing with the very difficult situation we're facing with the Corona Virus. It has impacted all of us. I wanted to reach out to all our area players to touch base on where we're currently at with all area events and disc golf happenings.

First, the PDGA has put a hold on all sanctioned events thru April 30th. Follow their website to view periodic updates to this position.

Secondly, Central Jersey's planned tag round on April 4th is cancelled. We hope to be able to have one in the near future.

Thirdly, The start of the OCP Spring League scheduled to begin Thursday, April 16th will be delayed. We are currently looking at available options. One might be to delay its start by 3-4 weeks; another option might be to run two summer Leagues- one at OCP and the other at Thompson. Decisions will be made based on when we are encouraged to relax the social distancing guidelines currently in place. We will keep players informed as we move forward.

Fourth, If you are playing casually at a course still open, make intelligent decisions. The PDGA is discouraging even casual play at this time. Playing in groups and disregarding the social distancing guidelines currently in place is selfish and irresponsible. Further, it draws unwanted scrutiny from others. Everyone is accountable to everyone else within the sport.

Lastly- A status list of area parks is provided for you under the "Happenings" Thread. Please read.

We will get thru this! In the meantime, be safe, be smart and reach out to a trusted someone if you are having difficulty adjusting to this very stressful time. Hope to see everyone out there back in our normal routines very soon!
