American Bison In Ann Arbor, Michigan

American Bison In Ann Arbor

Today, I visited Domino’s Farms in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I observed a herd of approximately 50 American Bison. Here, three bison are walking from a low area to an open hilltop, where bails of hay have been served for lunch.

Disc Golf Stories, No. 2

It was the summer of 2000 when Hudson Mills Metro Park hosted the PDGA World Disc Golf Championships near Ann Arbor, Michigan. To accommodate a deep field of competitors traveling to the area, six different courses were utilized, including Cass Benton Hills (Northville) and Kensington Metro Park (Milford).

Various side activities were also available during that week, where players and spectators alike could participate. One such event included a disc golf basket to be given away on the last day. To qualify for a chance to win the basket (worth several hundred dollars), preliminaries were held each day at every course, where people were charged $1 per shot. With any luck, their name would be added to a final list.

I thought I’d give it a try, but realized that day that I’d already spent my money on lunch. However, after rummaging through my car for a while, I found $1 in change and handed it over to the person in charge. He chuckled as I counted out the coins, informing me that many people where paying $20 at a time for a chance to qualify.

Nevertheless. Starring at the basket roughly 80’ away, I tossed my one and only shot…and made it! It was a moral victory of sorts, though I never did win the basket in the end.
