2014 Educational Disc Golf Experience (EDGE) Recap - Feb 19th, 2015
EDGE TCP Review-2014
The Educational Disc Golf Experience would like to thank you for your involvement with the 2014 EDGE Tournament Charity Program.
If you have not done so yet, please take a quick moment and "LIKE" the EDGE Facebook page to get all of the latest updates and awesome EDGE stories throughout this year.
Please share the numbers and EDGE Facebook stories with the folks that attend and support your events. It is important that we all keep the players informed of the great work getting accomplished with their contributions. 2015 will see EDGE release its 3rd edition to the Getting the EDGE Curriculum and Activity Guide that will include updated standards, an expanded technique section and at least ten new disc golf related activities!
Whether you are a player/contributor or a tournament director making things happen, our EDGE hats are off to you! We at EDGE hope you enjoy seeing this program grow and produce solid results. We are all making a difference and the sport is growing right before our eyes.
Cheers, Jay Reading
(EDGE TCP Coordinator)
