Big news this week
The biggest news this week is probably the weather. For the second time in two weeks the South and East have been hit by a big storm that has dropped several inches of snow and ice along the Southern and East coast of the United States. The problems are so bad that the PDGA offices are closed for a while. Here is the official statement.
“Due to the extreme weather affecting the southeastern United States over the past 48 hours, the PDGA headquarters at the International Disc Golf Center will be closed until further notice. Fallen trees have caused widespread power outages in the area and our phone system is inoperable at this time. Please use the contact page for all communication until further notice.”
