Dont forget Aug 24 is the deadline to register for the State Championship. After that date your berth will no longer be honored. Remind your friends.

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.
thanx 43392

What Mark said :)

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

So... Y keep it a B tier? Js

No Joe this is not the state finals discussion board either. Casey was simply advertising the Meijer State Games which is adding Disc Golf as an Olympic event. Her Club is the club hosting the event but if you read the flyer, the club who has the most people represented will get a free chainstar basket...And East Kentwood high school is where the opening ceremonies will be held the 2 days of playing will be at Brewer Park in Grand Rapids. Hope that clears it up for ya.

The State finals moved from Ludington to East Kentwood High School? Is alcohol permitted at East Kentwood High School? I bet the venue moved related to the banishment of booze on Gus Macker weekends.


Derek Straayer    April 5, 2012 at 8:51pm

Cool, that's what I thought. Thanks for the help guys!


John Minicuci    April 4, 2012 at 10:48pm

My bet is the Chainstars will be the lowest quote you receive.
Shipping on 18 baskets is almost always the deciding factor.


Mark Stephens    April 4, 2012 at 10:12pm

It is a Chainstar & I bet you do but I don't think anyone has ever asked.


Derek Straayer    April 4, 2012 at 10:05pm

Thanks Mark. I'll be sending them that info shortly. Here is my second question: Do I have to buy Chainstars in order to receive one of the MDGO's baskets? The reason I ask is this park is requiring I gather a number of quotes for baskets, and I'm not sure if Chainstars will come out as the lowest bidder. Also, it doesn't say on the website that I have to buy Discraft Baskets to meet the requirements.


Mark Stephens    April 4, 2012 at 7:21pm


Here is what you need to know & do.


Derek Straayer    April 4, 2012 at 3:24pm

I got another course going in besides the county park that has already secured one of the "plant-a-basket" baskets. Do you guys still have more baskets to match? This course will be a 24 hole course. please let me know you thoughts.


Jeff "Heyman" Schropp    January 6, 2012 at 4:08pm

When will the 2012 Disc Golf Calendar be updated? I find this to be a useful tool that I can print and carry around that shows all tournaments that are going on!


Keith Aten    September 27, 2011 at 9:52am

Yea the palat a basket still has baskets avail. Send me an email with the following and I will get it to the proper people. [email redacted] The email must contain the following. 1) Must be a public course 2) New 18 or 9 hole + course 3) First come first served is sorted by; 'Course in date' then request date. 4) After baskets exhausted, then a wait list will be created and kept in case of more baskets available. - [email redacted] - Is the offi ... more


Derek Straayer    September 27, 2011 at 8:30am

Is it still possible to be put on the "Plant a Basket" list? The email links on the MDGO's website keep giving me failure notices.
