George Costanza called it ‘frolf’. For most, the activity that involves a casual walk in the park accompanied by throwing a frisbee towards a basket of hanging chains is known as frisbee golf or disc golf. It’s fun, it’s affordable, it’s exercise outdoors, and it can be casual or competitive. And for two Minot residents, it’s the opportunity to get involved with local government and help make Minot better.
Vince Azzarello and Jordon Lakoduk are the guys in charge of Minot’s informally organized disc golf community, and they’ve taken it upon themselves to advocate for improvements to Minot’s existing course at Polaris Park and possibly even a new, more challenging course — it all depends on what everyone tells them Minot needs via an online survey they’ve put together.
And here’s the story in their words.
