The kids' league that I run (UnderAgeDrivers) is wrapping up on June 15th with our finale. We will be handing out league prizes and running ctp's, longest drive, longest putt, jumbo toss, raffle, etc. While the players do pay $1 each week and that will be spent on prizes/lunch/awards, I need some non-dx donations to offer as additional prizes! If used and inked please make sure it is not offensive! I promise that all donations will end up in the hands of a UAD player. Thanks

Instead ... more

William Randazzo   June 11, 2013 at 10:51am

Question could you use a few more discs for donations. I'm sure we could donate maybe 5 discs from BDTs. Let me know and I can bring them the day of or someone can pick them up

Scott 'bernie' Burnham   June 11, 2013 at 11:40pm

That would be sweet! I am not sure where to pick them up at. So let me know when and where and perhaps I can. Otherwise I will be at Raintree about 9:15 Saturday morning. Thanks!

William Randazzo   June 12, 2013 at 11:29am

I will be at our utica store on Thur and our Roseville store on Fri. BDT Utica is at 7770 auburn road. Downtown utica next to the Locker room. The Roseville store is 27419 Gratiot about a quarter mile north of 696 on the west side. If I dont see you either day I will just drop them off on Saturday morning

I know the flyer says Doubles in the title but read in the paragraph, the Monday league IS singles...


John Minicuci    May 30, 2013 at 10:05pm

William Randazzo    May 30, 2013 at 5:40pm

Good afternoon. I could use some help. I work at a local smoke shop called BDTs in Utica. We just started to carry the Z line of Discraft and some putters. We are going to carry the full line if we do good on selling them. We are looking to maybe go to events and sell some disks. Is there someone I could talk to about vending at one of the events. Im sure we could always work out some prizes if the tournament we were vending at let us vend. Let me know. Please and Thank you. Im not trying to sell space on your site I would just like some help on where to start

Jason "raffle Bagger" Phillips    May 8, 2013 at 2:28pm

I'm looking for a " focus " with the march mud fest stamp on it. I would like to buy it. Message me if you have one for sale.

RJ Lacelle   May 17, 2013 at 11:29am

i have a challanger with the march mudfest stamp. Never been thrown and I wouldn't mind getting rid of it at all

Jason "raffle Bagger" Phillips   May 17, 2013 at 12:53pm

what do you want for it

Nick Baranowski    May 8, 2013 at 11:52am

Hey all, lost a red/yellow pro valk at FF and it is extremely valuable to me. It was a biffed throw that I forgot to pick up. if anyone sees it my name and number is on it i'm offering a 20$ reward. double the reward if I get the name of the person carrying it

Brandon Redmond   May 8, 2013 at 8:19am

Jason "raffle Bagger" Phillips   May 8, 2013 at 10:23am

mike "jewphish" cole    May 7, 2013 at 4:13pm

mike "jewphish" cole   May 7, 2013 at 3:47pm

Jason "raffle Bagger" Phillips   May 7, 2013 at 5:43pm

mike got bounced after a few holes but kevin and I shot 14 threw 18 and I hit top of basket to give him the win.

John Minicuci    May 3, 2013 at 12:26am

3 weeks into the league and we set another record last week. Average players per week after 3 weeks: 146 players. Record: This past Monday, April 29, 2013: 150 players. Well done!

Joe Benno   May 1, 2013 at 2:10pm

I do all the time

mike "jewphish" cole   May 1, 2013 at 2:36pm

thanks John

Jeff Dutka    April 30, 2013 at 7:40pm

Hey MCCG, Are there any random flip doubles weekend leagues in the metro area? I checked the league listings but didn't see anything. Thanks, Jeff D

Chris Leo   April 30, 2013 at 4:49pm

We run BOBIS doubles on Saturday during the winter months. I know Ted Stoebling and Louis Caponi run the Metro Detroit League and they do random draw doubles on Wednesday at Firefighters. Jeff Bauman also runs Team Stony AM doubles/Pro singles on Friday nights at Stony Creek.

John Minicuci   April 30, 2013 at 7:54pm

Tuesday evenings is Eastside Ace Run League, Random Draw, and Thursday Doubles at Starr Park is also a Random Draw format. That completes the local leagues around here during the week. There are so many local and short drive tournaments, that the weekends are virtually all booked up for any kind of formal league.

Jeff Dutka   May 2, 2013 at 8:54am

Thanks guys!

John Minicuci    April 20, 2013 at 3:19pm

Heading to Firefighters around noon today to spread some mulch. Shouldn't take too long but could always use more help!


Ryan Koeppen    April 17, 2013 at 1:38am

I'm getting really frustrated with this league. It used to be a ton of fun but now its getting to be unbearable between holes. I know youve mentioned that cards should be no bigger than 6 people. It didn't work just mentioning it. It's not difficult to play with 5 other people. Im sure I'm not the only person who doesn't like waiting for 2 or 3 or even 4 groups to tee off in front of me before my card gets to. I saw at least 5 groups of 8 or more people and its getting t ... more

I have never had the chance. I live 45 mins away and have had a very busy schedule with work and school. I know how the league works though. I was merely making suggestions. I have run leagues myself too. This Waterford area needs direction for a local group of decent disc golfers. I will be attending this league every once in a while though.

brent moreno "WPD"   April 21, 2013 at 10:47am

well when u get a hundred plus ppl playing gets a lil crazy

Ben Jackson   April 21, 2013 at 10:50am

Believe, me.. I know about party control. I get that it's crazy, but mostly fun crazy! I'll be talking to John soon.

Ben Jackson    April 13, 2013 at 12:20am

Anyone win the lottery yet? I just looked up the numbers and lost... At least I still have 18 more chances!

John Minicuci   April 12, 2013 at 8:28pm

So far I know my sister-in-law, Krystal Fromm, and the bartender at Sunnybrook all won on the 1st week. No idea if anyone hit this past week.

Brandon Dub    April 1, 2013 at 3:00am

when is the monday night firefighters league starting? 4/1, 4/8, or 4/15??

This is the last week for the Basket Alignment Fundraiser. If you have any tickets left please do your best to sell them. With all of the tickets that I have collected money for so far we are still below the break even point. If you have not contacted me already please shoot me a message so we can make arrangements to meet up once your tickets are sold.

I wish I did. I have a few suggestions in and they are working feverishly on this topic as well as the fundraiser discs. If its anything like the discussions we have had, the players are going to like them.

Dwayne Kay   March 14, 2013 at 7:51pm

1) I'm so glad you'll be running this event, but I'm so pissed, because it's the weekend of my daughter's commencement!

Brandon Redmond   March 15, 2013 at 1:03am

I am def looking to play in this. If not, I plan on caddying for Ragna Byrde or Jessika Edvardsson, both top female pros coming in from Sweden. Either way, I'm gonna be there!
