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.

P.J.

     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. 

Victor-

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.

-Jeremy

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.

 

Respectfully,

Victor E Smith Jr

aka

Daddy_Dragon
