  • Attention: Feb. 21 Disc Golfers-

Due to an unforeseen production circumstance tonight, we have to reschedule your tee time tomorrow (Sunday, February 21) to a future date. You will be fully refunded for your tee time as well as offered an opportunity to reserve a tee time in the future. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We were excited to host this event, and even though we covered a majority of the fragile areas, some were exposed through our play on Saturday night. Until we can properly secure these areas, we are unable to hold the event tomorrow. We look forward to hosting you for Downtown Indoor Disc Golf in the near future. Thank you for your understanding on the matter.

  • Following up on yesterday's post-

February is a month long celebration of the history and achievements of Black individuals who have made an influence and impact throughout our country's history.

This month is dedicated to learning and remembering all the impactful individuals and events that have left their mark in history, but it should not end there. Every day we should strive to celebrate the contributions Black individuals continue to make in our community. We encourage you to buy from Black owned businesses, support Black creatives and donate to Black organizations this month and every month. 

🎤 Drop your fav #blackownedmaine org in the comments and visit @blackownedmaine. They currently have 270 businesses, nonprofits, artists, musicians, podcasts, blogs, etc. listed in their directory.

The 2021 Black History Month theme is       
  • Every breath from my bronze-pounded chest,
we will raise this wounded world into a wondrous one
We will rise from the gold-limbed hills of the west,
we will rise from the windswept northeast
where our forefathers first realized revolution
We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the midwestern states,
we will rise from the sunbaked south
We will rebuild, reconcile and recover
and every known nook of our nation and
every corner called our country,
our people diverse and beautiful will emerge,
battered and beautiful
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it
If only we're brave enough to be it
