Chiang Mai Disc Golf Club
Wednesday, August 2 @ 3:00 pm

Disc golf (also called frisbee golf, or frolf) is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target, and is played using rules similar to golf. It is often played on a course of 9 or 18 holes, but other formats are common.

We usually play Wed and Sun afternoons, at the running/riding track in front of Huay Tung Tao park, but others times can be arranged.

The Akha Swing Festival
When: August 2017

Where: Chiang Rai
This annual festival is held at the end of the hard weeding work on the rice and is a time of celebration for all, which the Akha say that they came down from God through the swing. The swing is built by an elder called a Dzoeuh Mah, which a village does not have this elder can not build a regular swing or gate. The swing is used for four days, then the braided vine rope is wrapped around one of the four very long legs and the swing is left there till it is rebuilt the next year. Swinging on an Akha swing is fast and takes one very high, an old rope is not safe.
