Our time has come!
Disc golf in Wichita and around the world is swelling in popularity, being called by many the fastest growing "new" sport. And, relatively speaking, this forty something sport is still very new.
And that is what makes it exciting as more people finally discover what we already know; this game is a fun, challenging and rewarding sport! It i s far more than a leisurely stroll in the park and tossing a "Frisbee" around. (Not to disparage a fun past time enjoyed by millions over the years).
This is the time the Air Capital Disc Golf Club has been working towards. Our prime directive has been to promote and support the sport we all love to play so much. And we, along with other local clubs, state associations and the international PDGA are now seeing the blossoming of the fruits of our labor. But, this is only the beginning of the best of times for disc golf.
To build disc golf into a self-sustaining sport with a lasting place in the annals of professional and amateur sports we must become clear on what we need to do to feed the swell and ride this wave of popularity into the future. We must be dedicated and willing to put forth the effort to do what is needed to accomplish this lofty long term goal and the short term goals that are necessary to get us there.
This is what is at stake. This is our opportunity.
The excitement and energy that has kept so many of us playing for decades now and has caused so many more of us to join the ranks of the disc golf community is now spreading. And it is this energy that we can harness to light a fire under the powers that be to get with the program and provide more opportunities for more people to discover and enjoy playing disc golf in Wichita and South-central Kansas.
It is this energy that we can direct to bring more people into the club to join us in accomplishing great things for disc golf and building the sport for future generations. And, in coming together as a community of disc golf enthusiast who love to have a good time - competing with, learning from and just spending time together.
Most importantly, it is our privilege to fuel the movement with more
· Exhibitions to introduce disc golf to others
· Clinics/Workshops to help disc golfers from the novice to the pro to improve their game
· Events, large and small, to feed disc golfer’s hunger for competition and camaraderie
· New ideas to inspire and encourage others to join our cause
