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

Go to:

http://discgolfer.ning.com/group/the-dgrus-great-disc-adventure

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 ?

       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.

if the guy you have lined up for jersey doesn't work out I'd be glad to be your jersey representative. one thing that might be a problem though is that most courses i play are in Pennsylvania. there are a couple courses around me but my home course is tyler in newtown pa(which even though i live in new jersey is only 10 minutes away from me) let me know

Well Pete, you can be the Pennsylvania rep.

 

I'll make Hawaii last on the list.

Ok.... I'm ready for the disk.

I think dookville is ready for the disc. Lol
Yeah....I'm ready for the disc. I gots some plans for that thing dudes.
Ill be your utah huckleberry if not already filled.

O.K. "Brotherhood",

 

    I have eleven states so far.

Washington

California

Michigan

Florida

Mississippi

Tennessee

Virgina

Indiana

Hawaii

Pennsylvania

Utah

 

     This should be enough to get started.  I just hope that there will someone from the remaining states to help out.

The first person that that Disc will travel to will be Mr. Ed  He will take it to his local course, take a pic, post the pic with a story, and then mail it to the next person.  I will keep each address a secret as promised.  This way no one can accuse me to "Spaming".

     The Story starts off with..................................

Back in July 2010, a man named Victor E. Smith Sr had passed away.  He was an Airforce Veteran and a father to three boys. Yes I was one of those boys.  A man named Cassidy received a picture of my father and made a Stencil.  Upon receiving this stencil, I put it on a disc.  This picture was taken on Father's Day 2011.

My father's health did not allow him to travel that much.  So I am sending my father on a long trip all over the United States.  All fifty to be percise.  That is with the help of the "Brotherhood".

He was placed upon a Discraft "Glide".  The stats are

Speed........................... 7

High Speed Stability.......... -3

Low Speed Stability.......... 1

What does that mean ?  It is an understable disc.

Basically I use it for fairway drives.

Throw it hard, it goes to the right.

Throw it softer, it "S" turns.

I am not asking for everyone to throw this disc every time on every hole.  But when you do use it on your local course, please write a story about your adventure with my "Father".  He may be dead, but to me, his spirit lives on in my heart and with this Disc.  So thank you all in advance for spending time with my Dad, and for continuing his life / memory.

 

Would be glad to help you out in ILLINOIS.Also if you cant find someone in INDIANA i can cover that two since im on the state line and play in both states regularly.

 

Thats awesome Double D, I'm proud to be a part of your Dad's travels.
