This week: Stockholm Disc Golf Open 2012!
This week it’s time for the 34th edition of Stockholm Disc Golf Open. Personally, this is my 7th time. I first played it in 2004 after two years of disc golfing. This year’s PDGA Major event will probably host the strongest player field ever on Europe’s soil. However, to me disc golf is not about just the score card. To me it involves all the experiences from travelling, hanging out with friends from all around the world to playing itself.
This time I’ll concentrate blogging on the experience side and I’ll bring to light many details that matter when creating one of the best disc golf events in the world. I have no doubts that the arrangements will once again be of top quality.
These are some of the great people who prepare the table for us the players to enjoy:
- Jonas Löf
- Peter Bygde
- Andreas Winkelbauer
- Mats Löf
- Fredrik Granåsen
- Alf-Göran Arneholm
- Andrea Löf
- Sandra Winkelbauer
- Linda Bygde
- Birgitta Lagerholm
This year we unfortunately lack the club house and the restaurant – Villa Albastro – as it was burnt down just months ago. I want to express my condolences to the whole Järva community.
There’s also a threat that the city of Järva wants to replace the legendary Järva DiscGolfPark with a cemetary. I very seldom take any political sides, but this time I encourage you all to join forces and show Järva city what the disc golfing world thinks about their plans.
You can sign a petition started by Kent Karlsson if you want to protect disc golf in Järva on the internet.
You can also join the Järva DiscGolfPark – for the Future Facebook group here.
We’ll arrive in Stockholm on Wednesday morning. If you want to see what kind of beauty awaits us, check out this course introduction video by Victor Nyhuus and Martin Kemani.
The beautiful city of Stockholm, Lidingö, Järva and Kista Galleria, here we come!
