Shropshire DGC will also be running WB event some time in early May - full details to be confirmed soon.

Here's hoping the weather's good! Makes such a difference at these events.

Cheers fellas :) Thanks for the comments and suggestions during development, it always helps to to get a different perspective on things.

I'm just glad it went live before the clocks changed so I can get out and chuck some plastic about in the evenings!

New BDGA site goes live!

It's taken a while to get here, but the new BDGA site is now live :D This is the first stage in a complete overhaul of how the BDGA database works, with aim of integrating all member/player/course/results data into one glorious smorgasbord of stats. I've got a heap of new geeky toys to play with, so...

Kingsland Chilly Dubs 2007

'Twas a gloriously sunny January morn for the 18 players at the Kingsland Chilly Dubs 2007. The course was a little moist underfoot in places, leading to a couple of new and modified holes to avoid overly dodgy tees. None of the roped OB areas were used to make the course quicker, and the astroturf ...

Kingsland Chilly Dubs

How bist, Shropshire Disc Golf Club extends a warm and cordial invitation to the 2007 Kingsland Chilly Dubs. A few changes have had to be made to the Classic course used last summer due to waterlogged pitches, so we'll be playing a modified 12 hole course instead of the 18. The river's also rather p...

I'll be sat in the traffic crawling past the big concrete mushroom at Lancaster about the time you tee of then :?

It's a doddle to sort things by manufacturer (which you can also do at Disc Zoo :wink: - big chunky logo box at the bottom right of every page), and plastic, but weights are generally trickier for very anorakky reasons as they tend to be options associated with a product, rather than a category with...

All discs are a strictly limited edition run, and the Mirus driver is even a first run edition, so this is your chance to grab a slice of disc golf history! Mirus - awesomely...

Hmm, I can't get the thing to work in Netscape 2.02 - any ideas? :D Putting something up on the main BDGA page is somewhere on the list of things to do, be it an RSS link or having a list of the last x posts which may drive peeps into the forums more if they see something interesting. Any thoughts?

The event at Kingsland this year is being held on the grounds of a school, and we're there by permission. One of the few conditions we're had imposed on us is no smoking on the grounds (which basically covers the whole course). No drinking/drugs is a gimme. As such, we'll be running a completely no ...
