Disc Golf tournament at Hardin Valley

By Cassidy Steadman

 

A Disc Golf Tournament is currently in progress until Friday, Oct. 9. It will be held throughout each day until sundown.

 

The tournament will be held around the pond directly behind the J.L. Goins Administration Building, according to Phillip Elms, the director of the Student Recreational Center. It will consist of nine holes.

 

People who want to participate can sign up by the picnic tables located next to the course and also pick up their scorecard. There will be no rain delays because it is held throughout every day of the week.

 

A champion t-shirt is given to the person with the lowest score out of all the participants during the entire week. Players are able to report score’s back to the SRC, or they may tweet their score to @psccrecreation. Later on, they can check back with the SRC to see if they won.

 

Elms said, “The numbers of participants vary due to the forecast. Around 50 to 100 people participated in the last Disc Golf Tournament the SRC held at the Hardin Valley campus.” He also said there would be a permanent Disc Golf course in the spring located in the same place.

“Connect the Pieces”

By: Chance Collins

Student Life and Recreation will be sponsoring its annual “Connect the Pieces” Contest at the end of the fall semester.

“Connect the Pieces”, which was once the passport program of years ago, is designed to keep students connected and promote campus activity,” said Gwen Miller of SLR. Miller went on to say, “It’s an incentive program that promotes the use of resources here on campus and gets students to participate in activities.

Students who wish to join the program should stop by the Student Life and Recreation office and pick up their “Connect the Pieces” booklet. Once you have your booklet, you are ready to get started and start receiving signatures, said Miller.

Miller said, when the student attends any activity or uses any resources available on campus, they will receive a signature in their booklet and after the first three signatures, a choice of either a USB flash-drive or a t-shirt is the prize given away. After you first three signatures, all signatures after that will equate for points as entries for more prizes. The Grand Prize will be a new laptop along with a new GPS navigational system.

Miller said, the stipulations for the grand prizes are as follows; the student must be attending classes for the min of 6 hours per week, and maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher. For more information on the “Connect the Pieces” program or any other Student Life and Recreation events, contact Gwen Miller with Student Life (865) 694-655 and also you can check out the website from the Pellissippi homepage.
