“One of them is $200 off a
photography session with
the Haugens, so some of the
prizes are pretty darn good,”
Paoli said.

bottles will be worth at least

because without them, we
wouldn’t be here,” Paoli
The winners of six busi-

working on setting up a
disc golf-themed “family
fun day,” and later a full-
scale tournament on the
course in Dallas City Park.
“ We w a n t e d t o t a k e
something that is already

the co-chairwoman of the
“Marketeers.” “There’s also
a couple of groups that do
disc golf tournaments, and
they do call Dallas home.
We are trying incorporate
all that and put together an
annual tournament.”

ment effort.

Without naming specif-

tee requested more time
to work in other develop-

“In addition to the
Eclipse Festival, the com-
mittee explored various
avenues of commercial
development in Falls City,”
the report read. “The
broad scopes of these
types of businesses/activi-
ties continue to be of in-
terest to the committee,
and will require a great
deal of attention.”
After reviewing the re-
port at its February meet-

the group to continue
working until March 2018.
