The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Greetings DGRUS World,
Cassidy aka "Wicked Dyes" started something interesting. He created "The DGRUS Great Disc Adventure". With this concept he asks " A club to track the Great Disc Adventure. If a disc labeled with The DGRUS Great Disc Adventure is found please take a photo and post it on here along with your name/ date/ and location found then leave it for another to find".
Also he asks
How to prepare a disc for its adventure!
On the underside of the disc put:
The DGRUS Great Disc Adventure
DO NOT RETURN
Take photo of you using the disc
upload photo and leave name, date, and location
Now sign disc and leave for someone else to find and use!
Once you have sent out a disc for the first time please create a discussion with the Disc Name, Color, Stamp (distinguishing marks) as the tittle.
This is a great concept. A way to track a lost disc. But I would like to start something similiar yet different. I am taking Cassidy's idea and taking it a step further. I am stuck here in Florida. And realistically, will be for a long time. I would love to travel and experience many different places and Disc Golf Courses. But since I can not, there is nothing that says that I can't sent a disc of mine all over the place. What am I talking about ?
"The Brotherhood of the Traveling Disc"
There are fifty states in the United States. For those who do not know here is a list...............
I will need to find a friend in each state. This DGRUS Friend has to befriend me, send me their address via private mail (I will not spam it, and I'll only send it to the person needing it) and promise to do the following.......
* Upon receiving the disc, take it to their local Course.
* Take a picture of themself holding the Disc in front of their Course Sign
* Play the course using the Disc when possible
* Upon returning home, go to this discussion, post the picture, and write a little story about it at their course
* Mail the Disc to the Next person on the list.
So far, I would like the following people (Currently on my Friend's list) to participate :
Ed Horst..................... Mr Ed Florida
Cassidy......................Wicked Dyes Michigan
Mark Ellis....................Mark Ellis Michigan
Shawn West.................Dookville California
Donny Olow..................Donny Olow Morley Field California. First place I ever played
David Reisner............... Kirk Hawaii
Steve West..................Steve West Minnesota
Tim...........................Tim York New Mexico
Monte........................ Moe Dee New Jersey
Brett..................... Brett@sickdisc.com Wisconsin
If they all accept, all I'll need is 42 more friends. If they do not accept, I'll need someone to step up and take over representing that state.
Would you be willing to be part of the "Brotherhood" ?
I can not make this happen unless I have enough friends to cover every state.
Join the "Brotherhood of the Traveling Disc"
Welcome to the Brotherhood. It is your time now to spend with "Dad". Do what you wish.
Take and post pictures. Tell your story. The world is listening. Thank you for taking time to partake in
one man's dream of remembering his father while adding new ones.
Quick question -- I realize it's 50 states, but is it 50 people/50 states? I've done New York. But I'm likely heading into Pennsylvania this weekend to play. I know it somewhat notes friends in each state, but figured I'd ask... :)
I'm pretty sure it's by the state and not the person; D.D. can correct me if I'm wrong!
That is correct. I am trying to every state represented.
There has been several states that have had been represented
more then once. Everyone that wanted to join the Brotherhood,
I have done my best to allow them. Thus some states get played more then once.
But Each time, it has been a seperate park or course that gets noted.
In that case, as long as nothing screws this trip up, I'll take it to Pennsylvania this weekend. :)
Where is dad at these days?
"Dad" spent time up in the North East part of the US. He was up in New York with P.J. Harmer.
"Dad" will be traveling back home to Florida. Unfornuately, it looks like "Dad's" travel have come to an end.
I came up short of my goal of him traving to every State in the US. But I would like to give a big shout out
to everyone that spend time with "Dad", and showed their love of the sport, and their desire to help a
stranger in his goal to have the Memory of his father spread as far as possible. To those that partook
in this event, I "THANK YOU" and give my deepest appreciation of sharing the love of this sport, the love
of a son's Memory, and compassion of being part of a Disc Golf family.
Ill do a few
more before he retires if like. I sent you an email.
It was a pleasure and a really cool thing you did for "Dad's" memory! I'm proud to have been a part of it. What states are missing? If you could resend the list I would be able to help get some more complete. I travel extensively for work and take my discs everywhere I go. Let me know.
Did Dad ever complete the Journey?
I have to admit that my goal fell very short.
It was and is disappointing.
But I do really appreciate everyone that partook in this journey.
"Dad" is currently sitting atop the fireplace mantle in my house.
Once again, "Thank You" everyone for spreading the memory of my father,
and love of Disc Golf to the future generations of the sport.
