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"
NOTICE OF TRAVELING DISC TRANSFER
Please be advised that the undersigned shall transfer the TRAVELING DISC to Cassidy Mayne on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at noon at the Independence Lake Course in Whitmore Lake, Michigan.
Members in good standing of this website are invited to witness the transfer and join in a round of Disc Golf. Properly reverent and respectful requests to touch the TRAVELING DISC will be duly considered.
Refreshments will not be served but if history is any guide then photos will be taken.
Can't wait Dookville.
You were one of the first players to befriend me when I joined this site.
The Disc "Dad" is finally joined with it's creator.
The skies of Heaven have now parted with this event.
Who are the two standing with you Mark ??
Let them be known.
I have a question.
When does it start to snow up North.
Reason why I am asking is that there are several states in the North that are part of the Brotherhood.
Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Washinton, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming to be exact.
If snow starts to fall, people won't be playing.
So if it is about to start snowing in the recent future, I'll deter the Disc's route to the south and work it to the West.
When Spring comes, then I'll restart back to the Northern States.
