Hitting The Rakes

Students spent an extra day out on the disc golf course to take advantage of the great weather. They raked, prepped, and seeded the surface. Just...about...there! 



Drone Flyover

James Cope used a drone to complete a video overview of the CFHS disc golf course. Pretty cool! Here we see the Great Outdoors Track students at work improving the course. And the work is coming along nicely. Good work people and thanks James!
(Warning: the video ends with a crash!)
