A link to a story about Camp Joy, the amputee camp for kids that went on last week.  They mention the disc golf lessons that were provided for the kids.  Also a link to photos and a video that was produced.

Those that provided baskets, plastic, and helped out I think can consider it a success.

All, here is an email that I got from Randy Mecca...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brad,

Attached are video links on some local coverage of the Amputee Youth Camp last week.

If you know the names and contact info of Newspapers in the area, please let me know so I can add to my info.

 

The baskets and discs that you guys provided all were put to good use. Combined with what I brought with me, every kid who wanted a disc, got to take one home.

Pass this along to all involved in your group, especially Liz and Pete.

Next year I'll have to come up early and play some golf and get to know you guys..

 

I have heard that the Amputee Coalition is planning the same camp location for next 5 years.Next year I'll be in touch well in advance. It will be great if we can get 5-9 baskets, and instead of having my plastic flown in with me, I'll have shipped in UPS and pick up from you if that is cool.

 

Be prepaired to be proud.....and have some klenex handy. You'll see one little girl with no hands throw the disc, and lots of kids pushing their limits and having a blast.
 

These are all links to Cincinatti area News stories about Camp. One has lot's of Disc Golf in it. The stars are once again..... the kids! You do get to see a shot of my legs, and 3 others at the beginning of the fishing segment but only from the waste down so it's hard to spot me. The Yellow blurr that you see as they say "Arts and Crafts to Frisbee Golf" is me launching a drive.......my nano-second of fame.... Hope that you enjoy them.

The video is moving. And you definitely need Kleenexes handy!
