Congratulations Sam and Stan. They now join Bill Jacobson as CDGC members who
have won the coveted Golden Rake award.
The Golden Rake is awarded annually at the USDGC to recognize the spirit of volunteerism
and those who stand out as going beyond expectations.
Stan has been designing and building disc golf courses for us to enjoy for over 20 years.
He is a former World Champion, is in the Disc Golf Hall of Fame has been either playing in
or volunteering at the USDGC since its inception, and is one of the primary forces behind
the CDGC. Thank-you Mule #1, for making Charlotte disc golf the best.
Sam is an integral part of our disc golf community. TD for the 2012 World Championships, he
has been a tireless promoter of disc golf throughout his career. His stewardship of the CDGC
treasury plus course work coupled with his efforts at the USDGC earned him the title Mule #2.
We owe more to these gentlemen than can ever be repaid. They have helped give Charlotte a
disc golf legacy without equal. Thank-you Harold Duvall, for recognizing their efforts.
