"Hey Greg! Long time. Sorry to hear about IN courses. I've only ever played the courses in Fort Wayne, and they weren't bad - in 1997. This arctic-like winter has put a serious damper on my visits to the park...but Spring is just around the…"

Loose change...

The year was 2000 and the first ever Amateur-AND-Professional Disc Golf Championship was being held in the Ann Arbor area of Michigan. During such events, there are many various contests and prize giveaways for contestants and spectators alike, and this was no exception. One such event had a basket to giveaway and, for only $1 per shot, persons making an est. 90' putt would qualify for a later, final shoot out for the prize.

At that time, Hudson Mills had added another 24 hole course… Continue

Lucky shot...

I believe that the year was 2000. I had been planning on visiting a friend of mine, John Mick, in the Kalamazoo area to then road trip up to the Brewer disc golf course in Grand Rapids for a summer tournament. This had been in the works for a while yet, come tournament weekend, I was having issues with one of my knees and would not be able to compete. But I made the trip nonetheless, and so the story begins...

In Grand Rapids I spent the first round walking with the Am-1 group in… Continue

My first MDGO final...

In 1999 I traveled with two buddies, John and Guido, to Ludington, Michigan to play in my first ever Michigan Disc Golf Organization (MDGO) finals. We had driven up early, planning on playing in the "Mace Man" doubles event that (Friday) afternoon. First, however, I found Lake Michigan and relaxed for a while after a long drive.

Anyway, we arrived in time to warm up and pay $10 to play in the doubles event. If I had to guess, I'd say that there were 20-24 players (10-12 teams) in… Continue

My local course is in the desert, but most courses are in the mountains in New Mexico. Yesterday for Christmas eve, it was 68 degrees here. It was perfect weather to try my new eagle. The coldest night we have had was in the upper twenties...

If you are ever down here you will have to check it out.

Thanks, we have quite a few more designs that will be offered soon but aren't quite done yet. Were hoping to get some of the shirts back from the press then were going to be selling them at events and hopefully getting them into some stores. Midland has always been one of my favorite courses, its a good mix of all the elements, except water but I guess I can live without water on a course. LOL
