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.

 

Join the "Brotherhood of the Traveling Disc"

I am REALLY looking forward to this DD. Can't wait to get to huck your "Dad's" disc and help him see the states. REALLY cool to be a part of this and Thanks Again DD.

The Brotherhood of the Traveling Disc,

 

    I am writing to inform you all that "Dad" has traveled to West Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia.  He has spent time with two Brothers thus far.  Kevin aka Goob, will be mailing Dad to Tino "Silverback" Medina in which North Carolina will be represented.  I can't wait to see the pics and read the stories.

 

Will keep everyone updated,

Victor

aka

Daddy Dragon

Tino "SilverBack" Medina wrote to me and informed me that "Dad" has made it safely to North Carolina.

The quest continues............

I am soo looking forward to reading about the adventures and seeing pictures of your dads travels.
Me too! And I wish all 50 states had a representative.

Everyone loves to play.

But to be creative.............

As long as players post their pictures and their story, things will be fine.

I am not an English Major, so I will not be grading your works.

But I do plan on making a short book if possible using everyone's short stories.

I will more then likely have to change the title, due to the Movie the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants",

but I will cross that road when I come to it.

Yes, I will be giving everyone who partakes in the Brotherhood credit for their participation.

..."Disc Road Travels"..just an idea to expand upon for a title;>}

Some people may be wondering "What should I do for my story?"

Well there is no set guidelines.  I am no an English Teacher.

But I would like for people to put their name and informational data

so that others who read may know more about the "Brotherhood".

Then put down information about the course or courses. 

Give a history, tell of problems or challenges about your course

so that others who read may know more about the various courses for Disc Golf.

One may include which holes they used the Disc on, how it flew, How you felt while taking axtra time to fullfill a "Brotherhood" quest, how it sat next to them while they drank a brew.  So that others who read may know more about the life of Disc Golfers.

Besides sending Dad around the United States..........

The Disc will be used to tell a story of how Different Disc Golfers, from different areas, from Different walks of life, from Different Beliefs and backgrounds have join in a common goal of a slowily but steadily rising sport called Disc Golf.  And I want people to say "You know what, I had a part in that" or "I was part of something".

I love it!

Ladies and Gentlemen (Brotherhood),

 

     The Brotherhood of the traveling Disc has been successful so far.  It is on it's forth state.  Looking back at the past postings, there have been some people / players that said they would help in the quest.  But some did not befriend me so that we may communicate when needed, and some did not give me their address so that the Disc may be sent when it is time.  Chuck Nichols from Or, will your son partake it the Disc's travels to you and from you to the next player? 

I need Fred Vegas from Virginia to contact me.  You Are Next On The Trip.  Pete Maher from Penn, you will be after Fred.  CincyChainS from Ohio, you will be after that.  Then the Disc will travel to Michigan to meet it's creator.

Oh, I have to make a correction.  I had placed Eric Day for Mississippi.  I was wrong.  He will represent Missouri.  So that means I am still looking for someone from Mississippi and more.  When I get home, I'll post which states are still needed to be represented for the Brotherhood.

Hey DD. I can make sure my Dad (Chuck Nichols) gets it in Oregon after I toss it up here in Washington. I am HOPING that both of us will make the Oregon story. :) If you need any of his info, i can get it to you. Message me if you need something. He is, or will be heading out of town tomorrow.

J and C Nichols,

 

    The disc is traveling up the East Coast of the US.  I am going East to West.  The last stop will be Hawaii.  So you might be waiting a little while. 

 

Victor
