Disc golf is coming to Port Alberni. The Sunshine Club is planning work bees to clear some of the brush in the area next to Echo Centre for the disc golf course. Please call the Sunshine Club office at 250-720-2505 to leave your name and phone number if you can help with this project.

You do not even need to be a club member. People with their own tools (and a pickup truck or two) are especially welcome.
