We have just been informed of the following per Cincinnati Parks:
To Disc Golf Course Users:
Yesterday we received some very discouraging news regarding budget from City Managers Office. The proposed reduction of parks budget is severe if not catastrophic. It will include closing of Mt Airy Forest on July 1, 2013 including the disc golf course. If you or any other disc golf course users want to speak on the park boards behalf please plan on attending the Public Budget Hearings at Duke Energy Center 6pm on Monday 5/13/13. Myself and the other Club Officers will be attending to speak on our side of things but please feel free to attend for a show of support. There are many other parks that will be closing, like Caldwell and Seymour, plus all restrooms will be closed, all floral beds, and mowing cycles cut in half with other definite cuts I don`t know of yet. What this means is, if something drastic doesn`t change in the budget very soon, No more Mt.Airy DGC for at least a year and probably more. Baskets, signs and other course materials will be removed and stored until the park reopens sometime in the future. Please help us spread the word, we will be planning for the worst and hoping for the best.
