Looking for Disc Golf News

Post by Charlie Mead » Sun Jan 13, 2013 7:37 pm

Dear All,

As many of you may know already I am attempting to put together a history of Disc Golf on Mull for the 21st Open in March. In doing so I have come across a lot of stats and odd pieces of DG memorabilia long forgotten on floppy discs, the sock drawer and unopened boxes from house moves 20 years ago!

So I am trying to also put together a chronological record of any/all events involving DG (and even OveraLL EVENTS) pre-BDGA co-membership with the PDGA - which was 2006 I believe. I will be looking to start about 1976 - but any and all info welcome.

So, if you have ever run an event and have any results tucked away - ever won a trophy, ever had a t-shirt with DG dates on it, ever found that long lost diary with dates from any year - then can you please send the info to me. This will be a long term project which I will upload as soon as I have enough data and time to do it.... I am especially interested in data from events that do not run now such as Hayling.

In the meantime, I need results from Mull from 2000-2005...... ......AND WHERE HAS BUD DISPPEARED TO? Some may have mocked his data and stats analysis but he is sorely in need at this time. If anyone has a contact number for him I would appreciate it.

Thanks very much

I do have assorted records, paper and electronic, squirelled away, but it will be quite a task to unearth and compile them all. It's a job that needs doing, just not sure when I'll have the time and energy to do my bit. I'll see if I can at least sort out a few Mull photos from years gone by.
I have BDGA newsletters in one place, but that's only part of the story and I guess that you will have most of those yourself.
You could message Bud Roger Digby Tilton on facebook.

Thanks del. happy to sort and archive data. Part of the fun- making sense of it all. Idea is to give basic format/matrix for others to fill in.

I just dug through some old photos and found photos of Bud's excellent filing from our planning meetings for Oxdisc Last Chance Saloon (2005, I believe). Nobody does planning or stats or filing as well as Bud. Sometimes it would drive you potty, but boy, it was great to have someone with so much knowledge and facts about your disc golf life!

Alas I don't have any photos of any of the actual scoring data he kept. In many ways he inspired me to do more golf analytics!
