Just wanted to extend my design skills to your crew. I have played a couple Chain Gang events, and know some of you guys. Love the vibe, love the people. If you are ever in need of flyers, promo stuff, logos, stickers, anything, please reach out. I have been doing a lot of stuff for Up In The Air and all the design work for the course on Belle Isle. Disc is a love, and designing is my profession, so any chances I can get to combine them always makes me a happy camper.

Check out my design stuff here -

Thank you for the offer Nick. We appreciate the offer and will contact you if needed.

Nick Oliver   January 30, 2014 at 10:27am

Right on, John. Thanks!

Hello, ladies and gentlemen.
I'm interested in possibly playing some of these events listed. I just joined this site, been a casual player for 22 years (I was 7 when I started). I'd really like to improve my game, and they say the best way is to play with people better than me. How do I join these events/this club...thing? Register with PDGA? Ask nicely?

I know the weather this afternoon does not look promising but a couple of us will be at River Bends following the Lions game (around 4:30 ish) installing 2 baskets. We could use a few more backs along the way. Holes are already dug. Mixing cement and dropping them in the ground so it should not take all that long...

Michael Lee Cook   November 18, 2013 at 2:41pm

John Minicuci   November 18, 2013 at 4:04pm

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

John Minicuci    May 31, 2013 at 2:08am

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


John Minicuci    May 31, 2013 at 2:05am

William Randazzo    May 30, 2013 at 9:40pm

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
