The 3rd Annual 2011 OkthrowberFest Disc Golf Tournament in support of the Dusan Nedelko Foundation

What is it Okthrowberfest?

Okthrowberfest is an amateur and family friendly disc golf tournament and family day event being held at the Chicopee Ski and Summer Resort. We have a full day of fun filled activities available to your entire family and to participants of all ages.

What is Disc Golf?

Disc golf is a low impact, inclusive game of skill. Imagine playing “ball” golf and instead of hitting a ball with a club, you’re throwing a disc (or frisbee) at a basket instead of a hole. Age, athletic ability, size and stamina are all equalized in this incredibly fun and inclusive game of skill.

This game has an excellent social component and we definitely do not require you to have ever played! We have discs for first timers. We want to introduce you to the amazing world of disc golf. Get out in our beautiful natural surroundings and get healthy.
