Am Worlds 2010 in Mid-Ohio - five smaller towns within half hour of each other north of Columbus.
Pro Wolds 2010 near Hammond, IN - bid being presented for Board approval at upcoming Summit end of April.

Is that bid for Lemon Lake?

That's what it sounds like and the only place I can think of in that area. I hear it is great disc golf there. I've never been there though.

Lemon Lake it is. I talked with Jay Svitko yesterday and he said almost all of the baskets have been installed on their fourth course on the same site - the White Course. Crown Point is southeast of Chicago about 15 minutes south of Hammond, IN. They are hosting the first Super Class Nationals this summer on Aug 22-23. Those who want a sneak peek at the four courses for Worlds next year might want to check this out.

I heard the White Course was going in and a rumor that they were hosting the Super Class Nationals a few weeks ago, but I had not heard any more about it. I was waiting for it to show up on the PDGA schedule before I repeated the rumor, but I guess you would be the guy who would know if the Super Class Nationals is legit. The folks in Chicago seem to know about it at any rate.

Jay told me he was sending in the Super Class Nationals sanctioning form today. Hopefully, it will show up on the calendar next week.

Lemon Lake - Sweet. I played Homies for a couple of years there.

The only drawback is Hotel /Camping are miles and many more miles away. That didnt stop Highbridge from succeeding.

4 courses in one location. The Park District will reap the daily fee from cars entering the park. Nice!

I hope Bart gets the bid! He and his committee deserves it for the work put in.

Mid Ohio - can you be more specific? If you can. I would like to start contacting my deaf guys out there and generate some interest. I'm thinkin Delaware, Ohio as a starting reference.

Delaware State Park (maybe best of the courses) is the south end. Marion and its course will be the center of activities. Courses in Tiffin, Upper Sandusky and Bucyrus will also be used.

Merrillville is within 20 minutes and is a convention town with lots of facilities and amenities (maybe not camping though). With Chicago and its airports nearby, it will be easy access for the World.

Thanks for the heads up.

Tiffin to Delaware is almost a 2 hour drive during daylight. I look forward to the powers that be plan around that.

Amateur 2010 will be neat in terms of tying together multiple little cities to show support for the competitors!

The schedule will be designed to only require movement between two adjacent cities on any day and some smaller divisions may stay at the same course all day on some days. Should be challenging to make that all work.

They have Camping at the dunes lakeshore which is within a half hour away if they get the interstate construction done by then.
