If this gorgeous, green 60 degree March day is any indication we should be in store for some awesome early-season disc golf.  Get ready for the Pinnacle party and renew your GMDGC membership today!  Anyone can play GMPS tourneys but only members get the benefit of season-long points tracking and the year-end booty that goes with it.  See our membership page for further details and to sign up.


Your faithful blogger has an increasing number of disc golf (and family/work) commitments in that other state that people from Boston drive through to get to fairest-Vermont.  In other words, his post count will be down this year.  Help a brother out and lend your voice to this space?  The job description is basically this:

  • Go to a lot of GMPS tournaments (so far so good!)
  • Take pictures, occasionally talk to other players
  • Dodge text messages from Chris Young where he gently requests homepage updates
  • Eventually get around to the tourney preview and/or recap after you’ve exhausted all possible excuses (real or fabricated)
  • Write about disc golf
  • Attempt to jinx Mike Habets (or whoever is in front of you in GMPS points) with glowing praise and “how does he do it!?” language 😉
  • Rack your brain for disc golf shot descriptors other than “beautiful,” “crush,” “sweet,” etc.
  • Make up beefs between AM2 players
  • Write about writing about disc golf
  • Assign people nicknames they didn’t ask for or approve
  • Eventually groom your successor

The pay is good by disc golf standards- many genuine “Thank You’s” and high-fives and the occasional “Volunteer of the Year” Award (I am DEEPLY honored by that!)
