Gateway To Host Disc Tournament September 2
Gateway National Recreation Area wants local residents to participate in its Ultimate Disc Tournament on September 2 at 10:00 a.m. on the soccer fields at Fort Tilden.
Rockaway residents are urged to put together a team of 7-10 players and come to Fort Tilden to "spend a day of fun in the sun on the fields of play and at the beach," according to a spokesperson for the national park.
The tournament is sponsored with a grant through The National Park Foundation from Lipton Tea's "Healthy Parks, Healthy Living" program and entry to the tournament is free. Free T-shirts will also be given to all participants and trophies are awarded to first, second and third places.
Teams will have plenty of time to go to the beach at nearby Jacob Riis Park between games. Teams can be co-ed but all members must be fourteen years of age or older.
