Chester offers disc golf in conjunction with winter carnival

Saturday, Feb. 18, 11 a.m.—CHESTER—On Saturday, Feb. 18, the Chester Disc Golf Club (CDGC) will host two outdoor events in conjunction with the 2017 Chester Winter Carnival.  Children and families are welcome at both events.
At 11 a.m. the CDGC will host the first annual Winter Carnival Disc Golf outing for all players interested in playing a round of winter disc golf. Winter is a really fun time to play disc golf and all players—including those who have never played before—are encouraged to participate. The CDGC will have extra discs on hand for those who need to borrow one.
On Saturday evening, the CDGC will host a tiki-torch and glow stick snowshoe hike around the nine-hole course from 6-8 pm. The self-guided, one-mile loop trail starts at the course kiosk and traverses through woods and fields with moderate elevation changes. Depending upon the snow conditions, snowshoes or boots with traction cleats will be appropriate to navigate the illuminated trail. A headlamp or flashlight is also recommended but not required.
The Chester Disc Golf Course is located at the Pinnacle Recreation Area, directly behind the skating rink on Lover’s Lane, where all winter carnival activities will be taking place throughout the day and evening. Although both events are free and open to the public, the CDGC will be accepting donations in support of the disc golf course’s ongoing improvement fund. Check out Chester Disc Golf Club’s Facebook page for more information about the course and events.
