"Remembering Dale" Through The 5th Annual Dale Roberts Memorial Update - Sep 5th, 2011
The 5th Annual Dale Roberts Memorial is less than a week away. On Saturday September 10th we will come together in Nixa to remember a man who was a true ambassador to the sport by playing disc golf on the course that he was passionate about. If you had the pleasure of knowing Dale, you would know that he worked hard at everything he did, and this course was no exception. Dale was a major part in getting Disc Golf into McCulley Park. After putting in the initial 9 holes, he was determined to complete the 18 hole course, as he added 3 holes at a time. After 15 were in the ground, he designed the final 3 holes that included his favorite hole number 6 (which is the favorite of many who play). His plan was to install the final 3 holes on a Monday, just before he was to be the Tournament Director of Nixa's first PDGA event. Sadly and very unfortunately, Dale was unable to to see the course complete or TD that event, as he passed away the Sunday before. The Nixa Center was quick to complete the course and name the McCulley disc golf course after him in his honor and memory. Each year we all have an opportunity to remember or pay our respects to the man and family who was instrumental in establishing this challenging and fun course. It is my pleasure and honor to be a part, and hope that you will be able to attend this 5th Annual Dale Roberts Memorial and the ones to come.
