2021-08-22 Horton Grove Results

We enjoyed a small but fun event at Horton Grove on Sunday in the late-August heat. To make up for the heat, humidity, and occasionally thick vegetation, courses were slightly shorter than usual.

Preliminary note about February events at the coast

We have been approved for events on Saturday, 06 February and Sunday, 07 February at Shackleford Banks and Ft. Macon, respectively. At this point, we feel that the only thing that would disrupt these plans would be severe weather that causes cancellation of the ferry to Shackleford. Details about these events should be available soon […]
