Following in the footsteps of the Trilogy Challenge, Veterans for Vets is a new event designed to meet three goals. First, it gives disc golfers a chance to play in an organized event during the winter months. Second, it provides an awesome environment for a disc golfer without any tournament experience to play in an organized event. Finally, it provides an opportunity for a local disc golf community to raise money that gets returned to that same community to organizations tasked with serving veterans!
The 20th Annual Veterans Honor Parade, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019, will allow all local vets the chance to walk or ride along the parade route, which will begin at the War Memorial Building (1202 South Virginia Street) at 10 a.m. Veterans don’t need to register in advance to participate, but are asked to check in at War Memorial by 9:30 a.m. the morning of the event.
We also hope that thousands of “sidewalk saluters” will line the streets to honor these brave men and women. The route will go from South Virginia Street to 9th Street, ending at the Christian County Justice Center. For more information, please call 270-887-4290.
