The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

What are your plans for promoting Disc Golf in this up and coming season? To many of us the season never ends, just the year, but many of us on here are diehards. How do we infect the casuals and others who have never played the sport with our passion for the game? Are you planning on running for a board or club position? Perhaps you are a TD, or helping plan tournaments, maybe even trying out the new Super Class format to attract more female and beginner participation. Are you proposing or building a new course in your community, revitalizing an old course? Sometimes it's as easy as getting involved with your local club, going to some meetings, helping with course maintenance, participating in work days. There are so many ways to get involved in the sport and help grow it. I am just curious what some of you have up your sleeve, or if you have not been involved maybe this is the year you get your feet wet.

This year I hope help a few TD's and learn some of the ins and outs of all of the work that needs to be done, so I can hopefully become a TD in the coming years. I believe that in this recession disc golf will become a more popular recreational activity and the presence of people that are trying to help new players will make it more attractive. I know when I started playing the good promoters, helpful (pro, master, am) players along with over excited TD's and club members really got me interested in playing at the next level not just anything goes casual rounds. Beter players offering me to join them, offering helpful tips and the occasional free disc to try out (as many new players carry one or two discs that are often the wrong one for their skill level). So let's hear your plans and ideas.

Disc golf has a season???.... you could have fooled me.

As for the new year, I plan on doing alot of things the same as last year, giving away lots of discs to new players, and trying to show more people the game, as well as constantly trying to upkeep my local courses, and trying to help build new ones. Though I will be doing at least one thing different, I will be trying to organize the first UPDGA Gathering. That will be my first TD experence, wish me luck...

Yeah to us in colder climates the casuals and newer players hibernate. The courses are only played by the avid players. I hear many players refer to it as the 2008 or 2009 season. California I know is a lot different. Of course that is the beauty of Michigan to me, I love the change of the seasons. In winter I can snowmobile on the same course I play disc golf on that is right next to the snowmobile trail. I can go snowboarding a half hour from here. In the summer I can ride a boat to the course. The landscape changes all year long, its a beautiful thing.
