Of course everybody knows who is the current World Champion, and maybe even what kind of discs he or she uses.
But do you ever stop to think who that volunteer was who rescued your favourite driver from that treacherous pond? Who the people are that turn around 90 scorecards and scores in 60 minutes? Who are the unsung heroes that get out at 5am in the morning to set up the course for this weekend’s tournament? Or who are the persons who tirelessly and selflessly take care of furthering the sport in general in your country?
As PDGA Europe, we decided to place our volunteers in the spotlight.
There’s obviously no way to know all volunteers, and thank them personally, but we actually should.
Instead, we’ve decided to, as a thank you to all volunteers at once, hand the award to one volunteer in particular who has gone above and beyond for disc golf on a European level.
