Here is an email that Craig Myrick received yesterday concerning the course at Art Dye: Craig, I hope it's okay to contact you about the Art Dye Disc Golf Course. I'm new to the sport, and recently played the Art Dye course in American Fork, where I regularly fly RC planes. Seeing all the guys walking into the woods with frisbees is how I got interested.

I hope it's okay to contact you about the Art Dye Disc Golf Course.
I'm new to the sport, and recently played the Art Dye course in American Fork, where I regularly fly RC planes. Seeing all the guys walking into the woods with frisbees is how I got interested.
Anyway, I noticed on almost all of the web sites pertaining to disc golf that our course at Art Dye is heavily criticized as being both terribly messy, and very difficult to navigate for newcomers. I concur with those points. My son has been looking for something to do for his eagle project for scouting, and I suggested doing a clean-up project for the Art Dye course, and laying down new markers for many of the difficult to see launch points.
We got the project approved with AF city and plan on doing the project this Saturday evening, August 6th, starting around 5:30 p.m.
I you know of any way to advertise this to the guys who play that course, it'd be super cool to get some adult help hauling out some of the larger trash heap things in those woods so we can load them on trailers and get that junk out of there. Do you have a contact list of any sort, emails or phone numbers, or a forum where this could be posted? I know my son would be excited to see some frisbee golfers show up to help.
The one thing it'd be nice to have is one of the Team Utah leaders come out and support us, at the very least help us figure out what to do with the launch points that are missing on hole #1 and some of the others that just aren't there any more (due to the city's tractors plowing them under). That'd be sweet.
Please call me when you get this message.

New disc from Gresham OR. just arrived today: The Skyquest Medusa. Spent the morning throwing it and wasn't disappointed. Plastic is very tacky and is easy to snap off the finger, however the disc feels durable (still testing it) like star or ESP plastic. Disc has lots of glide and has a great flight path. Check it out:

There was a place in Ogden that sells railroad ties. Not sure if it is still there. I will check on my way home. Hopefully I will remember to look.

The tournament registration is FULL. I've started a waitlist, so let me know if you want to be added. The first few will most likely make it in the event, but I have to wait for the postmarked registration forms to come in.

The Creekside Open is now 80% full and only 10 days away. Don't wait any longer to register. I'm going to shut down the online registration in the next couple days.

Altitude will be at the Swap Meet at the Motor View drive-in in Riverdale, (located right by Riverpark DGC). Come up this Saturday, April 9th to check us out. We will have all of our plastic there, along with bags, and other stuff. After checking us out, take in a round at riverpark. It doesn't get much better than that.

Thanks to everyone who pitched in yesterday and today at the Creeky. 3B is better than ever (Great idea Rich).

Thanks Big Wave, Does anyone else have recommendations? I've got a list now.
"Big Wave" Dave April 2, 2011 at 2:12am
I Have to work all weekend. Here are some things that need attention:
Branches in a pile so the county can EASILY pick them up.
Branches on 3b needs to be moved out to other pile by 4's tee-pad.
Line the fairway with logs on 3b (maybe 3a too).
Trash and trash cans.
Repair sleeves 2a, 5b & 13L a&b.
Dave Roper April 1, 2011 at 9:53pm
Creekside work day this Sunday, the 3rd from 10 to 2. If we get enough people to help, we will extend the #3B tee pad.

Just got in a replenishment of Discraft today, and we also now have Discwing, Daredevil, and Aerobie in addition to the other brands that we carry - not on the site yet, but will be soon, if you are interested, feel free to call or shoot us an email.

There are also discs at Hammond Toy, just up the street from Creekside.

Someone posted that a shop called "in-flight" was going to open in March on 2700 S 500 E. This never happened.I'm not sure if they are behind schedule or if they are not going to move forward.
Altitude disc golf is the bomb. They have great deals on discs, a great selection, and are at most of the disc golf events in Utah.

Altitude Disc Golf is local to Layton. Right now we are online only, but for the locals we are making deliveries to Riverpark. We have made deliveries down to Creekside, we just need a large enough order to make it worth driving down. Give us a call and we can work something out 801-820-7750, or check us out at www.altitudediscgolf.com.

Hey, Isn't there a new disc golf store in Salt Lake? I'm sick of those guys attitude at play-it-again, why don't they help out the local scene anyway? They should be a huge sponsor, sell at tourneys, buy our script, ect...
Dave Roper March 22, 2011 at 12:45pm
FYI, I just received 10 more entries and the Creekside Open is now 33% full. Don't wait until it's too late to register.
