The MDGO.org domain says it has expired as of yesterday. Is the disc golf scene going to replace that? Also is there a $5 discount for being part of the MDGO when we renew our membership?

Great planning and execution in Ludington last week. From my vantage point - the "B-Tier" does not convey the high status designation the event deserves. While there may be some cashe' with a two-day, 7 course, 440 player B tier event, there is probably some other criteria that keeps the event at "B". I've done a few A-tiers but did not get curious about the official distinctions until I was "rocked" by the A++ experience I had at State's. Should I consult the PDGA manual etc., or have a talk with my knowlegable friends in Grand Rapids?

Hi Fred, we debated the B / A Tier designation last Fall and decided to remain a B Tier on purpose for a variety of reasons. All A Tier dates, although the hosting club can propose dates, are mandated by the PDGA so we may not get the Labor Day weekend we all wanted. A Tiers, to sanction the event, ... more

If you are going to be in Ludington and are available any time between 5:15 and 9AM Wednesday we are doing a live taping of "Michigan This Morning" for 9&10 news and Fox 32. We need people to throw some holes, maybe talk about disc golf in an interview, putting...Contact me ASAP [email redacted]

Darren Harper 1 days ago When there is no chance in hell a division is going to fill why not let people sign up until full? Why would someone want to pay an extra 10$ and come up a day early another 110$ for hotel just to get in ? No other tourney requires this... stupid need to go back to old format assigning poi ts to each tourney in the series and totals would decide champ..one tourney only deciding state champ is suspect at best.

Eric, If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there, does it make a sound?

John Minicuci   August 26, 2013 at 12:14am

i.e.: If I say anything, does it register to anyone ;-) ?

Chad Shine    March 31, 2013 at 2:10pm

Anyone know what the disc was from the 2002 usaadgc was? I just got one but can't figure out what is is. It is discraft and looks kinda like a wasp or magnet maybe?

Thanks Mark, What happened this year?

John Minicuci   March 14, 2013 at 6:24pm

The list of qualified players is almost complete up to the tournaments that have already happened from late May 2012 through the beginning of March 2013. The list of qualified players does not represent those who have registered. Registration for the 2013 USADGC will soon be open as well.

John Minicuci   March 14, 2013 at 6:26pm

The 2013 DGLO will not be accepting any cashless registrations. There are 144 spots available for the A Tier Amateur event at Hudson Mills and another 144 spots available for the Pro NT at the Toboggan. Jump on in, the water is warm :-) ! Hope to see you all there...

John Minicuci    February 21, 2013 at 12:53pm

Here is some clarity on the 2013 USADGC. There will soon be a list of official Qualifiers published on the USADGC website. What used to read all A and B Tiers now reads: This list will be completed as soon as possible. However, you can quickly determine whether or not you have already qualified, or make plans to attend an event where you have an opportunity to do so. Most PDGA Amateur singles events sanctioned B-tier and above between the dates of May 25, 2012 and May 19, 2013 are USADGC q ... more

Sign Our Online Petition!



http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/kalamazoo-disc-golf-development-project/



Sign our online petition to show your support for the renovation of Knollwood and the creation of brand new courses in Kalamazoo. Signatures from golfers living anywhere will be appreciated as it will show the City Commission that interest in disc golf extends far beyond the golfers in Kalamazoo alone.



This petition will be shown to the Kalamazoo City Commission at the end of the year and will hopefully lead toward a much bigger professional and amateur disc golf culture in the city!

It looks like I will be heading there on Sunday. I've been talking with the DNR rep, Joe Hall for a while now. I've also been to the Park before, it will be a fantastic property for a course.

I guess Todd Wiley has my request covered.

Attention MDGO members: our up state brethren are in need of some experienced disc golfers to critique/play their course design before committing to tee pads. The park is east of Gaylord and camping is being offered to those who help. I would do it myself, but between Bertha Brock, Ionia State Rec and my busy life, I don't have the time. They have 9 holes laid out with a plan to expand to 72! Please let me know if your able to help and I'll put you in contact with those who are reaching out for our help.

There are reasons to keep it a B Tier. Players MUST be a PDGA member to play in an A Tier for one reason. I am sure there is a good number of people that play every year that are not a current member of the PDGA. Secondly, the PDGA will also collect $1 more dollar from each player (it is $4 for an A-tier per player) so for example, that would be nearly $100 from the pro payouts. Lastly, you request a date from the PDGA for a date for an A Tier and then they give you one. If the MDGO d ... more
