Here, Fairbanks, DG is a demonstration sport in this years Senior Games (http://www.nsga.com/). We had about 50 seniors come out. We talked about the game and let them throw at a basket as much as they wanted. Saturday night they're having semi - random doubles at UAF.. From the national SG site it doesn't look like Anchorage has an event but keep your eyes open if they do it's a great opportunity to spread the sport.

What Senior Games are you referring to? Am I out of the loop here in Anchorage or is this something new?
John Roe August 14, 2011 at 1:20am
Do you guys know if DG is part of the Senior Games in ANC?

Many Thanks! to the staff (official & un) of ADGA! You do a diligent job of facilitating events, and Jeremiah concomitant Jamie, thanks for sharing the results!

Sorry for the delay. There is now a page for the Battle at Birch. Us Fairbanks guys are not on DG scene that much so it took longer than expected. This is a two day event, Saturday and Sunday, even though I only saw info for Saturday. I am pretty sure Sunday is starting an hour earlier to help travelers get on the road at a reasonable time. I will double check that.

I've run the Ace Race the last couple of years, but do not have the funds to run it this year. I think someone should take it and run it at Girdwood. That course is a bunch of aces waiting to happen.

Looking for a sweet driver with bam distance. Willing to hit metal within the circle(slamming putts and need a partner). If interested call at 530-448-1868

Whats the word on Ace Race this year? It is Ace Race season, no? The Players pack they have looks more than worth the $25 fee. http://discgolfacerace.com/
Lou Dogg August 4, 2011 at 7:11pm
Members of this fine Nation, I mean, Organization. I'm planning on making updates on our site here really soon. It's been a while since I last updated the Aces page. If anyone has hit an ace that you would like me to post let me know. The requirements are on alaskadiscgolf.com.
Jamie Adams August 4, 2011 at 11:24am
Tomorrow night- the fun begins at Hilltop! Bring your friends, family, and even the non-discers to introduce them to the sport and play games and have dinner! Please keep an eye out for the "Disc Golf Parking" signs- our parking area will be the North end of the parking lot. Looks like some sunshine today to practice in, and we ordered sun for the weekend :) so come on out!
Thad Murgatroyd August 4, 2011 at 1:11am

Thad...Love that idea...if they hadn't been drinking they would have saw the bear too...
Thad Murgatroyd July 23, 2011 at 4:42pm
the thing that kills me is that apd knows underage drinking is going on there yet its to expensive to have some cops on bikes go through there on a regular basis ,im sure MAD and SAD would be outraged that the APD lets this happens. I guess i will carry a big can of bear spray with me when i play there ,so if we correct a group and they out number us we can deliver some manners via pepperspray...cant be unruly when snot is running from your nose and you wanna dig your eyes out

Biggest topic in Anchorage Daily News these days: Disc golf at Westchester Lagoon. Deep down inside I really feel like this is a bit of free advertising, haha!
Chris Goodrich July 19, 2011 at 3:36am
Sorry Louie, I misread your post. Yes, we are outnumbered so we need to come up with creative solutions (with Parks and hopefully APD) to help bring the park back away from those who want to remove it.

For those that have paid the $10 non-pdga member fee at sanctioned tournaments- if you go to the pdga website under membership you are eligible for a "supporting" member- I believe you will be issued a pdga number and a rulebook, on your way to becoming a full paid PDGA member with full benefits including your lifetime PDGA number, ratings, PDGA membership disc etc. PDGA memberships are for the calendar year, keep your eye out for their end of the summer special where they usually give you the remainder of this year and next year with a full paid membership!
