The tournament season is finally coming to an end- it's been a busy year for us at Sweet Hat! This year saw us operate three tournaments and dye over 1,500 discs. So what do we have coming up in the near future?
-We're currently working on getting approval for our first course design at Green Hill Park in Worcester. The plan is to install two courses along the same route, taking advantage of some of the incredible views which are off the beaten trails of the park. One course will be a course geared towards recreational and intermediate players, while the other will challenge the best arms in the game. There's still quite a bit to go in the approval process, but we're hoping to break ground in the spring of 2015.
-We had a very positive conversation recently with a subcontractor for producing tee signs a couple of days ago. This is a project that's been long delayed, but it's one we're very excited about. Raising money for a course is always a challenge, and by being able to sell advertising on signs to local business, course operators will be able to raise the funds to help support their design.
-We're planning two new tournaments for next year. Those of you who have attended a Sweet Hat! event know that we either go big, or don't bother. The rapid growth of disc golf amongst the junior set has encouraged us to put on the first ever New England Juniors tournament next year, tentatively scheduled for June. In addition to that, we're planning a bit of a road trip next year, the details of which will be coming shortly.
-Of course, we're keeping up with our disc dye operations! We're always looking to add new retailers, and based on volume we may be bringing another person into the operation to help us keep up. If your shop is interested in carrying Sweet Hat! discs, we offer bulk pricing- get in touch with us on our contact page for more information.
As always, thank you for your support, and letting us do what we love to do. We're planning big things for 2015, and hope to see you there for them!
