A Quick Recap of “T4: Day Of The Displaced Disc Dogs”

Disc Dogs of the Golden Gate T4 recap

The fourth tournament of our season took place at Birch Grove Park in Newark, CA. It wasn’t too hot and we had a great turnout, with 28 teams competing across the various categories. This event was combined with our annual BBQ.  Fun was had by all who attended, and DDoGG sends a huge thank you all for coming out and especially to all who helped out. An extra big thank you to Robbie and Carol for the awesome BBQ!
