It’s nearly spring and those who want to put a spring in their step should get out their flying discs and start practicing for the 2nd Chance Disc Golf Tournament, a fundraiser for 3 Girls Animal Rescue of Shady Point.
The tournament will be held at Sallisaw’s new Disc Golf Course at Jay Reynolds Park at 8:30 a.m. April 9, in conjunction with the Western Arkansas Flying Disc Association.
The tournament offers three divisions – Big Dogs for advanced and open players; Little Dogs for recreational and intermediate players; and Lassies for ladies.
It also offers prizes, trophies, raffles, mulligans and a Second Chance Round if you don’t like your first score.
The entry fee is $20 per person for the first round. Second chance round is $5 more. Mulligans can be purchased on the day of the event. By buying into the second chance round, a player gets a second attempt at bettering his or her score.
Signup is at 8 a.m. and a players’ meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m. before tournament play begins.
Players may sign up for the tournament at www.facebook.com/secondchancediscgolf, and may also pay the entry fee through Pay Pal. Remember to register your division on the memo line.
If you don't have a PayPal account you may send a personal check to 3 Girls Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 1001, Shady Point, Okla. 74959. Remember to show your division on your check memo!

3 Girls Animal Rescue is a group of women and men who pull animals from local pounds and animal control facilities and foster rescued animals as homes are sought for them. All animals are neutered or spayed, given appropriate veterinary care and all vaccinations. The group uses funds raised to adopt out the animals or to transport animals to other cities and areas where forever homes are waiting. The group is strictly non-profit 501c3.
“We run solely off donations and lots of prayers,” members said “Just as our rescue offers animals a second chance at life, you can have a second chance in our tournament.”
