The day may have been moist, but that didn’t stop Chris Scofield from giving some hot tips to all the would-be  disc golfers on Sherwood Island’s very own Disc Golf Course!

Saturday, April 22

10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Earth Day Disc Golf Clinic/Demo with Chris Scofield (2015 Park City Open Champion) at Sherwood Island State Park

Saturday, April 22nd from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. 


Join professional disc golfer and FOSI board member Chris Scofield at the newly installed disc golf course at Sherwood Island Sate Park, as he teaches the basics of the exciting and rapidly growing sport of disc golf.  You will learn proper techniques, as well as the fundamentals of the game. There will be live demos by Chris himself, and an opportunity to play! All ages and skill levels are welcome.  The clinic is free of charge and a limited number of discs will be provided to participants for use at the clinic only.  The clinic will start at the pavilion and then move to the course.

What is disc golf?

Disc golf, also known as frisbee golf, is a flying disc game, as well as a precision and accuracy sport, in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target. The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc. The game is played in about 40 countries around the world.

THANKS to all our Fundraisers and suppliers!


Westfair’s lobsters, salmon, tenderloin, mussels, clams–and even one much-appreciated serving  of veggie lasagna–were great! REALLY great! I mean, those lobsters were the BEST EVER! Good job, Westfair!








Muscles n’ Clams, Clams n’ Muscles–YUM!


MANY THANKS to T. Palmer Landscaping and Anthony’s Nursery and Garden Center for their work cleaning and tidying up before the event. And MORE THANKS to Oliver Nurseries and Weston Gardens for and providing grass and ground-cover plantings attendees could purchase for the park’s 100 Trees program!



(The above is only a small portion of the donations; and the 2 large trees were too big to bring inside(!))
