How do disc golf and ultimate clubs work together in your City or State?

There is talk of getting all of our local disc golf clubs in one umbrella organisation with the disc golf clubs. I am wondering if any of you have experienced this. If so, how's it going? What have been the advantages? What have been the challenges? How do the two sports work together?

Other than the fact that both sports use a flying disc, they're two different animals with two different needs. I don't see what advantage a shared organization would have.

That being said, I think Ultimate is a prime recruiting ground for getting more people (and athletically inclined people to boot) into disc golf as they get older.

The New England Flying disc Association(NEFA) was originally created for this purpose. But the past 5 years have mainly been focused toward disc golf.

we occasionaly invite some of the ultimate dudes to our practices, and some of our golf players are also still somewhat active in ultimate, but that's about it.

Ultimate players tend to dismiss other disc sports because playing other disc sports might hurt their Ultimate skills. (i.e. throwing any disc besides an Ultrastar will train them to throw Ultrastars incorrectly).
Pfft...

To be honest, i was like that between 16 and 30... Now that I play golf mainly, the Ultrastar is just one more disc that flies slightly different.
