Twin Lakes Charity Disc Golf and Music Festival 2017 ... supporting The Royal/DIFD and The Ottawa Food Bank
The Ottawa Disc Golf Club has been active since 1998. One of their charities has always been the Ottawa Food Bank. As I am lucky to live in and own access to a private parkland setting with two lakes, an ideal setting for a pop-up disc golf course, I saw an opportunity to create an event that combined my passion for Mental Health and Disc Golf, a sport that I have enjoyed for 20 years. So with that and the help of avid disc golfer Don Lane, Twin Lakes began on October 29, 2016. Year 2 featured a new twist, a stage was set up and an open mic music festival was added to entertain the participants. It was well received. In 2018, the plan is to bring more music and Ultimate frisbee to the event so we can raise even more funds and create awareness for these important charities. Join us.

We've already met to discuss this year's event and we're working great ideas for making next year even bigger and better including an expanded music festival component with fun new holes. Here are the results and pics from 2017:
