HENRY PFAU CALLAHAN DISC GOLF COURSE
Location: From 294 or Rt. 41, take Grand Ave. East to Green Bay Rd. Turn left (north) on Green Bay. Turn right on Yorkhouse to McAree Rd. Go 1/2 block past McAree. Entrance on right.
|In 1997, with funds donated by the Callahan Family in memory of their son (a disc golfer), the Waukegan Park District installed a nice little nine-holer in a beautiful park setting. Bevier Park is located on the north side of Waukegan. It’s a beautiful well kept park with a small pond in the center of it. The Henry Pfau Callahan Disc Golf Course circles the pond and has a wide variety of holes. Many stereotype the course as short and easy. With the addition of two alternate tee pads for every hole, this course suits a wide variety of skilled players. As each year passes, trees are maturing and routes to baskets get tighter. In 2003, DISContinuum Disc Golf Club installed 3 holes in the woods to make it a 12 hole course. With 3 tees for every basket, it’s a virtual 36 hole course.|

maybe a little flat, but hey - there's nothing wrong with a course where every hole is aceable!
mirth February 12th, 2002 - 10:35 PM
The reason why you can't post large image attachments is because the BB is designed with people who are still stuck on slow-ass connections (like yours truely) in mind.
A larger image would take a long time to download, especially multiple large ones....
mirth May 15th, 2002 - 7:57 AM
Well, thats interesting news...
I'm a little curious, tho.. last time I was at leagues, two weeks ago, there was a cop sitting in the lot the entire time... I wonder if
a) the police are aware of this rule from the parks
b) if we could get them to actually do anything about it within a reasonable amount of time (meaning, while there is still daylight)
mirth May 15th, 2002 - 10:02 AM
I agree, this is a good idea... After all, if we didn't have something it would be our word against theirs....
mirth May 15th, 2002 - 10:21 AM
So, the soccer players are there every day?
mirth May 16th, 2002 - 10:22 AM
Yay! Too bad they won't get 'em out in time for mud-rasslin in the woods this afternoon...
Oh well, at least the soccer players (hopefully) won't be out there due to conditions.
Anyone want beer? I'm thinking of picking up a six on my way to the course....
mirth May 16th, 2002 - 10:40 AM
Thats how I feel! I'm actually hoping to come across some Spotted Cow... I dunno what that stuff is made of, but its like crack to me!

This was originally posted by CE-Valkyrie under a different topic:
I was seeing if Jim wanted to meet me Saturday after Junior Leagues to start chain upgrades. I guess I should explain a little more. This discussion basically revolves around Junior Leagues. Jim, I thought we were doing the chain upgrades ourselves & seeing then if the park district would repair baskets in the winter. Also, I think the upgrades would be nice to have before the tournament.
...damn those moderators....
mirth August 29th, 2002 - 9:07 PM
Sucky. Are they bees or wasps?
Regardless, I will try to remember my wasp & hornet killer spray on the 8th and we can dispatch them proper.

I agree about getting club members active in helping to do improvements. May I make a couple suggestions, however?
- Schedule the work days at minumum two weeks in advance. I probably would have helped yesterday had I had the opportunity to juggle my schedule around.
- Nobody really wants to do any kind of work before league play... Why expend the energy that could provide you with a great round picking up trash? I suggest doing the cleanup/improvement work after league. With weekly turnout at almost 20 if we got even half that number to help we'd be able to get some stuff done.
mirth April 28th, 2003 - 8:07 AM
Oh, I'm excited as hell about the three new baskets! Do we have a target date for their installation?
mirth April 30th, 2003 - 3:07 PM
I assume that 'a bead of chalk' is really a bead of caulk?
mirth May 6th, 2003 - 8:30 PM
Just curious if the upgrades happened or if they got delayed...
mirth May 7th, 2003 - 9:06 AM
Do you have the supplies for the chain upgrades already, or have they yet to be purchased?
I know Brett has bolt cutters, and I'd be willing to install the new chain...
Guess I'm just a little eager to get the upgrades done.
mirth May 8th, 2003 - 8:52 AM
Uh yeah, if I get the chain Brett or whomever can get it any time. I will not be at league on Sunday so don't count on getting it then....
mirth May 8th, 2003 - 9:10 AM
I guess thats up to you. I (apparently incorrectly) mistook your postponed indefinately post to mean exactly that. I thought when you said Tuesday you meant the 20th and not the 13th.
...Communication breakdown its always the same. I'm havin' a nervous breakdown .. drive me insane...
Its all good. [img="http://www.rafansrule.org/ubb/graemlins/rainfro.gif"]
mirth May 8th, 2003 - 12:08 PM
Wait, so you are leaving the chain with me, or are you going to deposit it at Shawn's? You're so confusing!!!!
mirth May 8th, 2003 - 3:01 PM
Heh, well this relates to Bevier so the topic police won't come out this time...
mirth May 14th, 2003 - 12:16 PM
Yeah! Practice basket!
mirth May 19th, 2003 - 9:56 AM
I plan on helping out next Saturday morning to do whatever is needed. What tools/supplies do we need?
