Dynamic Discs Update

It has been a busy but great week here at Dynamic Discs. We have a lot of exciting things going on, and we are working hard to stay on top of everything.

On Monday morning Dynamic Discs welcomed its newest crew member, Tauni Langelett, to the shop. She will now be taking care of shipping. She has helped to lighten the load on the rest of us, which will help us stay on top of things and continue to progress!

This week the “new” RV was sent in to be wrapped with a sick DD design that will make it unmistakable on the road. Outfitted with its awesome new look, this RV will spend the next year or so on the road with Steve-O as its driver. The RV will make its debut this weekend, starting at the National Players Challenge Championships in Russellville, Arkansas. Click here to Like Chasin' the Chains on Facebook and follow along with their numerous stops around the country. If you would like to see the RV in your town, you can contact Steve-O at stevo@dynamicdiscs.com with any questions or details!

Tuesday brought a huge shipment from Innova—about 2,000 pounds! We received some really cool exclusive discs, including Glow Champion King Cobras and Metal Flake Champion Super Stingrays. The Super Stringrays come in purple, blue and maroon with varied stamp colors. Check out these and other great Innova products on our website at www.dynamicdiscs.net.

We are also getting ready for the Dynamic Discs Amateur Championships in Cedar Hill, Texas. This is a great event, played May 26th and 27th and featuring three courses: Beaver, Coyote and Mount Lebanon. As usual, we have insane player packs for all divisions. This event is still open for registration, so sign up now! You can find tournament registration and other important tournament information online by visiting our Disc Golf Tournaments Page!

If you are looking for something specific and don’t see it on our website, send us an email! We may have what you are looking for, so contact sales@dynamicdiscs.com. We can also do custom disc dyes with our DyeMax process. We have designs online, plus more that are waiting to go on the web! If you have something in mind already, send an email to dyemax@dynamicdiscs.com to get set up with your dream design!

Charlotte Amateur Championships & New DD RV

Last Wednesday, Jeremy Rusco, Adam Searle, Clay Houser and Eric McCabe (and Ralph) packed up the RV and headed out to beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina for the Charlotte Amateur Championships! The event featured 4 courses: Elon, Idlewild, Kilborne, and Winget, with 238 players competing in two rounds each day. The weather was picture perfect, providing players the right condition to have fun competing to take down their divisions! Results for this event can be found here: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/78086.

We would like to give a big thanks to the Charlotte Disc Golf Club for working so closely with Dynamic Discs to make this a great event! We look forward to an incredible 2012 World Championships!


At 3 am on the way home from Charlotte, the guys made a pit stop to pick up Dynamic Discs RV number 2! From there, the Dynamic Discs caravan was on, with Rusco and McCabe in the “new” (it’s new to us, at least) RV, and Searle and Clay in the other one. This new RV is going to be touring all over the country with Steve-o Storrie, a Texas native, as its captain. You’ll also find a variety of other players tagging along with Steve-o at times, including Eric McCabe! A few stops have already been planned, including the National Player’s Challenge, the Beaver State Fling, the Minnesota Majestic, and the PDGA World Championships in Charlotte! If you would like to see the Dynamic Discs RV in your town, contact Stevo@DynamicDiscs.com with questions and event details!


Dynamic Discs will also have a variety of other events coming up in May! You can find us in Texas, Tennessee, Missouri, and Kansas! Check out the schedule of upcoming events on our website.


Now we have a busy week ahead of us to get back on track at the shop. Now that Wiggins and our shipping manager are gone, we are scrambling to keep up with what we have going on, from events to new products! Luckily we have some great hands on board to help out, including our new DyeMax man, Corey, and our soon-to-be new shipping, front desk and social media expert, Tauni! 


Finally, as always, we have some great new products for you to check out. A huge shipment of Latitude 64 discs came in, including Test Material II Pure, Bolt and Vision. We also received some Opto Pure and plenty of others.

Dynamic Discs Glass Blown Open Recap

Now that the Glass Blown Open is winding down, it’s high time we start blogging again and filling everyone in on what we’ve been up to over here at Dynamic Discs! Sunday, April 15th marked the culmination of the 10th Glass Blown Open here in Emporia, and despite the questionable weather, attendees raved about it, calling it the best GBO yet. We don’t want to toot our own horns over here, but it was pretty spectacular. With a grand total of 432 players, we had our hands full on Wednesday and Thursday checking people in, helping players find new plastic for the weekend, and still conducting business as usual.

Beginning at 8 am on Friday, the rounds were off and running! Saturday night’s block party was almost foiled by the looming thunderstorms and tornado watches, but inside the Granda Theater there was food, fun, live music and a putting contest on stage! That night, tornado sirens kept players awake and weary about how the final day would go. Luckily, Emporia managed to dodge the storm, and the final day, though windy, ended strong! Final results yielded Will Schusterick as the Men’s Open champion and Catrina Allen as the Women’s Open champion. All results can be found here: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/78084.

We would like to send out a huge thanks to everyone who attended the Glass Blown Open, as well as our amazing volunteers and our hard working DD staff! This was an amazing event, and we are looking forward to big things for next year’s Glass Blown Open!

Finally, we have some great new products available now, including Discraft’s Ti plastic. If you have yet to see the Eric McCabe Titanium Wasp, I highly recommend it, as well as the Paige Pierce Ti Stalker and the Nate Doss Ti Buzzz. The Titanium plastic is durable and beautiful. We also have some new apparel, including Glass Blown Open shirts, and new designs for DyeMax! For all this and more, check out our disc golf store at DynamicDiscs.net!

Dynamic Discs Dirty Dozen Tour

Seems like just a couple days ago since the last blog. Turns out it was a couple weeks ago! The winter was once the 'slow' time of the season and now it seems like there is no such things as slowing down.

The Dynamic Discs Winter Warm Up started the Dirty Dozen Tour off with a bang last weekend! This was our first attempt to implement an inventory and bar coding system for the tournament inventory. We learned a lot and are anxious to apply an improved system and changes this coming weekend in Cedar Hill and McKinney for two more events. The amateur payout system will be easier than ever before so expect to get your amateur payout faster than ever before.

The Limited Edition Discraft Z Zone arrived and were an instant hit! We don't have many left so if you want one, get one before the few that we have left are all gone. The new Innova Disc Golf Blizzard discs are arriving on Monday. Be sure to check out the Dynamic Discs online store to see all the new and featured products. MVP recently came out with the new Anode putter. Nikko Disc Golf stamped Gateway putters are going to be stamped this week and offered only at Dynamic Discs.

Today Dick Parker, Adam Searle, and myself battled the cold weather to finalize the Glass Blown Open disc golf layout at the Emporia Municipal Golf Course. Eric "EMAC" McCabe spent a lot of time with the initial design process and with a few tweaks we feel like we have a top notch course that players are going to enjoy for this years GBO! The map and layouts of all courses used for the GBO will be posted as soon as final adjustments are made and approved.

New Arrivals:
-Blizzard Champion Boss (Monday)
-Blizzard Champion Destroyer (Monday)
-Blizzard Champion Katana (Monday)
-Blizzard Champion Wraith (Monday)
-Restock of dry-fit shirts, long sleeve, short sleeve, and collared

Discraft Midnight Buzzz GBO Fundraiser

Another exciting week here at the DD shop. Registrations for the Glass Blown Open are already over 100 with registration only being open for a little over a week. The first Dirty Dozen Tour event of the year is less than two weeks away now with a steady flow of registrations coming in. The Dynamic Discs Winter Warm Up has filled up every year and we expect nothing different on this one. We are limiting the field to a strict 180 player limit so don’t be late to sign up.

The Glass Blown Open is shaping up to be the premier event in the region for 2012. Plans for the player party are finally coming together and it is going to be something special. The promo video for the event is being finished up right now by CoolDaddySlickBreeze and will be released as soon as the final touches are put on the editing.

Last week we received some more unique plastic that won’t be around for long! Be sure to check out the great selection of dyed discs in the Z Buzzz, CryZtal Sparkle Buzzz, CryZtal FLX Challenger and CryZtal FLX Drone. The red, white, and blue American Flag theme dye is a personal favorite. The GBO Midnight Buzzz also arrived as a fundraiser disc for the Glass Blown Open! This disc features a glossy black flight plate with GBO logo bottom stamp. With a projected 500 players at this years event, we don’t expect these to last past April 15th.

Thanks again for tuning in!

2012 Glass Blown Open Registration

Dynamic Discs is excited to announce that the 2012 Glass Blown Open schedule has been set and registration is now open!

Building on last year's record of 354 competitors, the tenth edition is going to be the most prestigious GBO to date! Players and fans alike will be "Livin' the Dream" for three rounds on three different courses. In addition to the Emporia Country Club and the Jones Championship Gold Layout, the 2012 GBO will feature a round on the Emporia Municipal Golf Course. All courses will run on tee times this year allowing people to follow the leaders, participate in the Discraft "Just Focus" putting competion, drop bombs in the Skywalker Gymnastic Long Drive competition, check out Dynamic Discs Headquarters, or just kick back relax and save your energy for you personal pursuit of a championship.

Three rounds of golf may not be enough for some die hard golfers. To help satisfy the need for more golf, two separate C-Tier 'One Round Challenges' will be available at Peter Pan Park both Friday and Saturday. Each event is separate and features a flex start so that you can play either before or after your GBO round. Rounds usually take 1.5 hours to play in a smaller tournament setting.

Our motto once again is "Livin' the Dream". And we want to make sure you're living it from the moment that you start your travels until the time you get back home. We understand that making the GBO a three day event will take a tremendous commitment from you. Your commitment and support the last 9 years have helped the GBO grow into a great event, and we expect nothing less this April! Our generous sponsors have stepped up in a big way this year and are donating more than ever before to make sure that you make the Glass Blown Open and Emporia your disc golf destination event for 2012.

Tee times and this year's 3 Day/ 3 Round format are just a part of Dynamic Discs's continuing effort to move the sport forward, interest more players, expand media attention, and help put disc golf in front of more players than ever in the Midwest region. Our expectations are high.

The GBO is more than just a disc golf tournament; it's a celebration of the sport and an indication of where it is going in the very near future. Without the PLAYERS and the support from YOU, DD events would be just another tourney! Thank you so much for your support and drive to help us take disc golf to a new level. Together we will create some attention and excitement from outside the sport. So while we're making memories to last a lifetime, we'll also be helping to grow the game we all love!

We're looking forward to seeing you in Emporia, KS this April. For complete event details please visit www.GlassBlownOpen.com

Dynamic Discs New Year 2012

It is hard to believe that 2011 is behind us and 2012 is full speed ahead! What an exciting year we had with a lot of growth and a whole lot to look forward to in 2012!

Some of the highlights of the year included our vending trips to The Memorial, the Bowling Green Amateur Championships, the Kansas City Wide Open, and the Discraft Great Lakes Open (DGLO). In April we hosted The Glass Blown Open which was the largest DD event to date with over 350 players. May had us busy with the move to the new shop and busy tournament schedule. June and July allowed us to get more organized in the shop and host more events on the road. August featured live scoring of the World Championships through Dynamic Discs as well as Paige Pierce winning the PDGA World Championships. September and October proved challenging to keep up with what all was going on and helped us make the decision to bring in more staff. November and December were hectic with the holiday rush and conclusion of the year. We hosted over 24 PDGA sanctioned events with over 3000 players and are looking forward to more events and more players in the new season.

In 2012 DD will do our best to grow and promote disc golf around the world. We will continue to attempt to bring you the best disc golf gear in disc golf, we will strive to make our customer service the best you can find, we will continue to run the most organized and best events in the most possible locations that we can.

Thank you so much for your support in 2011. You guys are the people that allow us to pursue our dreams.

We look forward to dealing with you in 2012.

Discraft Midnight Buzzz & CryZtal Sparkle Buzzz

No surprise that things have been more than busy around the DD shop these last couple weeks. Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales were expected to keep us busy and really tested us to make sure that we could keep up with the rush. We jump started the Black Friday sales week by receiving our Discraft shipment of Special Edition Midnight Z Drones on that Tuesday. The Mystery Box sale was also a huge hit that got a lot of product out of our shop and made for a lot of really happy customers. There were a couple problems that came up but we took care of them right away and made sure that our supporters were 100% satisfied.

The Bob Robertson Memorial PDGA B-Tier tournament was held on December 3rd in Crowley, TX. It was the fourth year for this event and is always one that we really enjoy. The event Is all about having a good time and coming to the after party at the Robertson’s house. The format was changed this year to promote a more relaxed atmosphere. For the most part, I think that the players enjoyed the one round of 30 holes. We started later and finished sooner with no lunch break. Miles Seaborn won the open division and Tony Shirley the masters division. A huge thanks to all the players who made this one and to Robin Robertson and her entire family for being such great hosts the entire weekend.

A trip to Detroit and the Discraft factory were in store for this last weekend. Eric McCabe and myself made the trip to mix business with pleasure. Plans and sponsorship were firmed up for the Glass Blown Open and Discraft Great Lakes Open A-Tier events. Both of these events are top events in the country and one that every tournament disc golfer should attend. The Dynamic Discs exclusive CryZtal Sparkle Buzzz and Midnight Buzzz were also being molded and expected to arrive at the DD shop early next week! Both discs are sure to be top sellers with the Midnight Buzzz being a Glass Blown Open fundraiser.

Happy Thanksgiving from Dynamic Discs

Another couple busy weeks around the shop. It always amazes me how fast paced things are in this industry even during the 'slowest' time of the year. This 'down time' allows us to get things geared up for the holiday rush and make preparations for the upcoming 2012 disc golf season.

Last week Tyler Searle spent the week around the shop to observe and get up to speed with what all happens at DD HQ. Tyler is Adam Searle's brother and has started working as our national sales director. Ty will be handling the wholesale accounts and increase our reach in this sector of the business. He will also be contacting local clubs and tournament directors to see how we can help work with as many tournaments and clubs as possible. I am very excited to have Ty on board and know that great things are to come with what he has to bring to the DD operation.

Tuesday was a big day for everyone at the shop. We featured the new release of the Discraft Special Edition Midnight Z Drone. Only 250 of these were produced and are an exclusive Dynamic Discs item. We also received blue, yellow, and pink. On top of the new product, we offered a mystery box special and blowout T-shirt grab bag special. Both of these specials were well received and kept us busy.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming up! We have several more great deals in the works that I know the disc golf community is going to be excited about. Our newsletter will be released sometime today with the specials starting shortly after.

Expected & Recent Arrivals at DD HQ:
-Special Edition Midnight Zone
-Special Edition Z Drone in pink, blue, & yellow
-Gateway Glow & Organic Wizards
-Legacy Discs Rampage in Protege, Excel, Pinnacle, and Icon Plastic
-Restock of Phenix Quad Shocks
-Camp Time Disc Golf Tripod Stools

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!
