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.

How are your pictures and story going Mr Ed ?
Sorry for the delay,the weeks prior to Thanksgiving is leaving me drained after work,Too many damn turkeys to reweigh,deal with customers..fine tuning the story.good news is our reconstructed dg course is finished..new baskets,new t-pads,water hazzard for 3 holes with gator.will try to get pictures of the "new" layout next week to add to story.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.fly high,hit chains
I was under the impression that your course was being destroyed due to the construction of a sports area. Was I wrong ?
Would love 2 get in on this. Iowa here!! Sent you a request!!
Perhaps,but no problem.The county destroyed the first wooded 6 basket layout along with our longer fairway shot of basket 18.The baskets that were refiguered/replaced had been the additional 9 bringing the total to 27 baskets.
Now that one of the holidays are finished,I'm not beat up as much enabling me to finish the story and pictures.Reweighing all those damn turkeys for the consumer takes a toll on ones body/wrists.
The supposed lure of big NCAA college ball players from name colleges and the money aspect threw us to the side line benches.We are back.
Welcome to the "Brotherhood"
Was informed that The Disc will be leaving for Ohio in the near future.
Has anyone seen my Dad ?
It should be between Michigan and Ohio.
Nope....no west coast sightings yet.
Las Vegas waiting patiently for an appearance
I shipped it out on Nov. 26 via Priority Mail. It should have been there in 3-4 business days. Which puts it there on the 1st.
Anthony aka CincyChainS, when you get the Disc, please write to me so I know it is safe.
