    Help the n00bs!

    I started playing DG almost a year ago.  I really enjoy it, and wanted to learn more and improve.  I surfed the web, watched instructional video on YouTube, but I am still just chuck'n plastic around a course.  It would be nice if there was some form of beginners' program.  Maybe there already is, but it certainly isn't evident to me.  A beginners' program could be a standing monthly meetup with some experienced helpful pla...

    I've connected with the Roach, voice-over superstar for the Superbowl, most major sporting events and previously Coors Field announcer. I actually used to work with him years ago, but his regular job now is sports on 850KOA. So if anyone is up early tomorrow, listen to his sports segment on 850KOA tomorrow morning, Friday. He said he might mention the HPCX tournament around 6:10am, 7:40am and maybe 8:40am on 850KOA am radio.

    We already have a couple of news stories from the CDSA press releases I sent about the HPCX this past weekend. We are also in the works of a news story about Peggy Berry from a local newspaper and I'm also talking with 5280 Magazine tomorrow, about doing a story for the HPCX. Here is a link to the news stories that are out there now.

    Who wants to be on TV? Fox31 has contacted the CDSA to do a couple live segments about disc golf this coming Thursday morning, May 10. This will be for their Good Morning Colorado show and will be live on TV at both 7:45am and 8:45am. I have decided to do the shoot at the Johnny Roberts Memorial DGC in Arvada. This course provides the best access for a satellite truck that's close to a tee and a couple baskets, as well as a beautiful park. 

    So this invitation is open to any and all disc golfers who want to be on TV. Please come help represent the sport you love and show how cool it is to the whole front range. Please wear decent, respectful clothes...

    Hello all,

     

    Long time listener, first time poster.......

     

    I moved to Colorado with my wife last spring to Castle Rock and bought our first house.  While we were looking for a place to buy we found out that there wasa discgolf course only a few miles away from us here in Castle rock called Matney Park.

     

    We played in our first tournaments over last summer here in colorado and love the community of disc golfers out there.  This discussion is looking for help, advice, warnings, etc..... pertaining to the adoption of a disc golf course.

     

    We've played this course a ton and actually it's really nice for an open style course.  There are definitely things...

    The CDSA supports enhances and promotes disc sports throughout the state of Colorado. One of the things I would like to see is the local Colorado clubs using this website as their own. I have selected this Ning network platform for this purpose. The main benefit being that any user can add content and we're not tied to one person to make changes to a website. There is an approval process in place, so we won't have spam posted.

    Each individual club can have it's own members with separate email to only club members or everyone, separate discussion forums for their members or everyone as well as full Twitter and Facebook integration. As long as there a...

    2012 is the 20th anniversary of the CDSA and I'm hoping to make it a great one! I would love to have discs, mini's towels, shirts and maybe other stuff, to have a cool 20th anniversary logo. I am experienced in Photoshop, but I know we do have some artists in the disc community as well.

    If you have the time to put together some sketches or even a full color finished piece, I would greatly appreciate it. It would be wonderful to have a few examples to review at our board meeting on Saturday, February 11th.

    I am open to any design that you come up with. I would like to incorporate the new CDSA logo, the Thin Air Tour, 20th or 20th anniversary, and something Colorado like the mountains....

    I wanted to let everyone know that I have gotten the CDSA Thin Air Tour points all updated, including Johnny. This next weekend is the State Championships which is the last even in the 2011 Thin Air Tour. So I figured it would be a good time to let everyone see how they are doing. I guess in the future all this points tabulation might be automated somehow. But for now it's just a manual process, by myself. So I appoligize for not being as speedy as I would have liked to be, with the points updates.

     

    I'm attaching the PDF to this post.

    I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the 11 new CDSA members that signed up in the last couple weeks! Everyone who play's disc sports in the state thanks you too. The more members we have, the better the sport is for everyone. Not only does more members mean bigger and better awards for the Thin Air Tour, but also it means more support for the Basket Donation Program, promotion of the sport through this website, press releases and brochures and also support future education programs.

     

    I have made your cards and mailed them out with a brochure and 2010 champions mini. They should be showing up in your mailbox soon.

     

    Thanks again,
