The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Here's the latest from the studios of Disc Golf Live video magazine, bringing DG to TV one community at a time...

Episode 27 of Disc Golf Live video magazine is in the hands of our broadcast partners and public access station programming managers across the country. As always, DVD copies of DGL are FREE for those who wish to submit the show to their local access station for broadcast. There are hundreds of public access channels across the US and at most all it takes is a local resident to submit the program, a little paperwork and a few minutes of legwork. Prominent locations where someone has yet to step forward include Seattle, New Orleans, and San Francisco. Of course, we welcome stations of all sizes. Every community should have some DG on TV. Check www.discgolflive.com for more information.

This episode, titled “North and South,” is centered in the Carolinas, with a side-trip to Georgia along the way. From Raleigh comes Kris Henseler’s piece on the North Carolina Flying Disc Championships, and from Rock Hill comes a sampling of Billy Crump’s Clash @ Winthrop Gold DVD. And Johnny B checks in with a tale highlighting the third and latest course at the International Disc Golf Center in Georgia. Book-ending these goodies is our own coverage of the putting finals at the ‘08 United States Disc Golf Championship. Thanks to Innova, the ’09 Memorial, and the PDGA for supporting DGL.

We’re already at work on our next episode, including some of the action from ’08 Vibram Open. If you’ve got something you’d like to share with our community, let me know. DGL is a great way to promote your local club, courses, personalities, and events. DGL is also available for home delivery and in wholesale quantities for player packages, CTPs, and retail sales.

Great job Joe. I am considering taking a copy to my CA station here in Lake County Florida. I will check out the web page and request a copy from you.
Thanks for the note, Matt. Hope all is well in FL. I didn't find a channel listed in your county but that's not unusual. They should be able to guide you as necessary. The DVDs I make are suitable whether they use them directly or if a tape has to be made. Happy to send shows your way if things pan out! If they wonder if the content is appropriate, I'd point them to the UNC Educational channel in Charlotte, NC, where the show is aired regularly. Also, since the program is a presentation of the PDGA, you can point them towards that org which may help as well. Again, thanks, and keep me posted.

any channel in Dallas/Ft. Worth?

Hi, Bill-

The Dallas station is: http://www.dctvdallas.org/newindex.html

The Ft. Worth station is: http://www.fortworthgov.org/Citymanager/cable/

I'm not sure whether either station allows local folks to submit a program not produced in the area. (That's sometimes a restriction placed on folks, otherwise usually just residency is required.)

I'd be willing to help out here in Denver. We've got lots of courses here and a pretty vibrant disc golf community. Do you have any info you can share regarding stations? let me know how I can help...
We are in the prcess of getting some Western australia footage together cant wait to get it through to you and see what you recon
Hi, AV

Thanks for the note. Looks like things are happening in Denver but I can't get much info off the web. Here's about the best I could come up with:

http://www.denvergov.org/Community_TV/NewsSnippets/tabid/382551/Def...

From these minimal details, looks like Access is operating but in a state of flux. Perhaps you can watch the station for more info or give them a call. I gather that they still use tapes. The DVDs I create for broadcast are formatted for broadcast equipment as well as for those who need to make a tape (I include a bars/tone intro option, and its easy to hook a dvd player up to a VHS for making a tape.) See what you can find out about the station from your local perspective. They probably only allow local residents to submit shows. Hopefully, they allow material produced elsewhere (which is a sticking point in a few places.) If you can reach them, they'll be able to let you know what else you need to do on your end. Once you can get that figured out, let me know and I'll get some shows into your hands.

Joe, just wanted to thank you for the work you do..... I watched that instructional piece with Mike Raley (at the ole Brown park) showing good backhand technique so many times......and it actually worked. Improved my form and subsequently my distance and accuracy. thanks again.
I do not live in New Orleans, but have played at LaFranere Park (sp). If someone could film the Pot O Gold tournament there in mid March '09 that would be cool. A very nice course layout.

I've got a contributor in Lafayette, LA, and get footage from there occasionally.

New Orleans has a station and I've even heard from a few folks in the area, but no one has had the follow-through it takes.

Looks like broadcasts will begin soon in Grand Rapids, MI. A few other irons in the fire as well.

How do I get a copy to give to my local access station?

Hi, Jordan -

Thanks for the note.

I couldn't scare up a decent link to your station to get any details (not unusual) so you may need to watch the station for contact info. (Channel 11, I think.) You should contact them and get some info about:

1 - what you as a local resident have to do to submit a program
2- find out if they take material produced outside of the area
3 - find out what format they want programming in.

Otherwise, once you find out that you can submit my show, let me know. The dvds I produce are made for broadcasting directly (as many stations now do) or making up a tape when that is the format a station uses.

Let me know what you find out.

Joe
