Team Utah Disc Golf

I was just filling out the sanctioning info for Huktoberfest and was thinking how much funner it would be to have the event as a two day PDGA event with a night tournament on Saturday night between the rounds rather than a Friday night tournament and a PDGA event on just Saturday. I have been going back and forth so I thought I would put it to a vote. Let me know what you think by Tuesday and whatever gets the most votes wins.

If any of you are wanting to play Bengal Ridge up in Pocatello this year there is a 36 hole tournament on September 10th being held there that is run by me. My brother is also is helping out and says he has been working hard on adding cash and prizes so it should be worth the trip. You can find more info on it at pvdgc.org

I see you have 3 Open women signed up for Solitude this year!! I really wish I could play it. I plan to return to the tourneys next year, hope you all have fun at Solitude.

Solitude is still on! Come play a round on Thursday. We will be set up down towards the bottom to the left of hole 18. You can register for the tourney, play one of the greatest courses in Utah, or just hang out and see what 5,000 discs looks like. One change from our last post, we will not be there at 10am, the time has shifted to high noon at the request of Solitude. See you there!

All right, Full Throttle at Solitude is this weekend. We will be up there with the entire stash on Thursday. We've got a lot more than what we had at the Riverpark Open. We will be up there from 10am to 6pm (or longer if needed). Come play a round on Thursday before the tourney and check out what close to 5000 discs looks like. Biggest selection in Utah with the best prices. Call if you want us to hold anything for you. 801-820-7750.

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:

Found some on Redwood road. Google is a wonderfull thing.
http://www.akrailroad.com/railroad-ties 1-800-453-8812 Dont know what they cost.
Rick Wardell April 11, 2011 at 3:37pm
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.
Dave Roper April 6, 2011 at 3:34pm
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.
Dave Roper April 3, 2011 at 5:43pm
Thanks to everyone who pitched in yesterday and today at the Creeky. 3B is better than ever (Great idea Rich).
Dave Roper April 2, 2011 at 12:52pm
Thanks Big Wave, Does anyone else have recommendations? I've got a list now.
"Big Wave" Dave April 2, 2011 at 6:12am
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 2, 2011 at 1:53am
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.
