Help Bring a Disc Golf Course to the Gorgeous Coopers Rock State Forest in West Virginia
By Nick Buysse, Greg Hackett and Josh Woods ~
Here are three ways to help:
1) Attend the public tour at Coopers Rock State Forest on March 2, 2019 at 10 am. The tour involves a short walk in the woods where the proposed disc golf course may be located. The more people who attend the event and voice their support, the better our chances of gaining permission to build the course. Please write a short email to Mr. Travis Miller at Travis.M.Miller@wv.gov and let him know that you will be attending the walk through.
For driving directions and further instructions, see the public notice below.
2) If you are not available for the walk through on March 2, please write an email to Mr. Miller anyway (Travis.M.Miller@wv.gov). Let him know that you support the project but cannot attend the event.
Here’s a letter template:
Dear Mr. Travis Miller,
I am a member of the [INSERT THE NAME OF YOUR DISC GOLF CLUB AND/OR CREDENTIALS]. Although I cannot attend the public walk through on March 2, I am writing to let you know that I fully support a new disc golf course being installed at Coopers Rock State Forest.
[INSERT YOUR NAME]
[INSERT YOUR CITY AND STATE]
OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL STATEMENTS:
- I am enthusiastic about the project.
- A disc golf course at Coopers Rock would increase my visitation to the park.
- I would volunteer my time to build and maintain a disc golf course at Coopers Rock.
- I would help raise funding for the construction of the course.
- I do not live near Coopers Rock, but I would be more likely to visit if the park featured a disc golf course.
3) Please post the link to this article on your social media.
It takes a community to grow the sport of disc golf. Here’s a chance for you to help strengthen our community.
Thank you for helping us.
