Falcons prepare for Minicamp

Falcons prepare for Minicamp

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga -- The OTAs are winding down at the Atlanta Falcons' headquarters in Flowery Branch.  The voluntary off season workouts have been well attended and the participation looks to be paying off.

With new Offensive and Defensive Coordinators, the team has spent the past few weeks digesting changes that are being put in place for the 2012 season.  Wide receiver Harry Douglas is glad the changes are taking place this year rather than last summer, when the NFL teams were locked out.  Douglas has spent time working special teams as a punt returner during OTAs and says "I did it some during my roookie season and fell in love with it."  It will be something to watch for during training camp.

Meanwhile, Head Coach Mike Smith was pleased with the level of participation and what the team has accomplished during the OTAs and says the upcoming Minicamp will be a continuation of what has been taking place the past few weeks.

Win a 1-year membership to a Canongate Golf club

Win a 1-year membership to a Canongate Golf club

ATLANTA -- On Monday, Canongate Golf rolled out an initiative to get Georgians to go outside and play -- preferably on the links -- this summer.

This "Play" platform encourages metro Atlanta residents to spend some time outdoors, now that summer break is in full swing. The movement centers around an Environmental Protection Agency statistic, which says that Americans spend about 90 percent of their time indoors.

"At Canongate, we believe that golf can truly have a positive impact on the quality of life and have seen its effects firsthand through our members," Canongate Golf president and CEO Joe Guerra said in a statement. "We have challenged ourselves to create an array of programs and packages that make the sport more accessible and enjoyable for the entire family."

To celebrate the Play program, Canongate is giving locals a chance to win a free one-year membership to any of its 23 clubs throughout the metro area.
