KALAMAZOO, Mich.-The Air Zoo is seeking a name for its disc golf course and asking visitors for their suggestions! Fans are welcome to submit their ideas by entering the museum's disc golf course naming contest.
To enter, contestants must fill out and submit the naming contest form found on the Air Zoo's website at www.airzoo.org/discgolf. Entries will be judged on their creativity and suitability. Contestants must be at least 18 years old.
Submissions are due by March 28. The winning suggestion and contestant will be announced at the disc golf course's grand opening the weekend of April 2. The winner will receive a prize, compliments of the Air Zoo.
The Air Zoo's disc golf course, designed by professional disc golfer Larry LaBond, opened last January with nine holes. The Air Zoo will add another nine holes in the spring, making it an 18-hole course.
For more information about the Air Zoo and its disc golf course, call 269.382.6555 or visit www.airzoo.org.
