I rolled a WA450 a while back, one full roll and then slammed down on the side, one of the scariest rides of my life, but lucky not my fault as the machine had less than 100 hours on it and one of the axles (front) snapped in half. They had techs from all over the world fly into my rock pit to see what happened and what went wrong with the equipment. The steel that they used had a flaw in it and they had a major recall on 75 other loaders. /random bit of useless information on my life.

A WA450 is a big critter. Not exactly made for barrel rolls.

Win an INNOVA DISCatcher Sport!

It is time to submit your favorite disc golf photos to the 2015 INNOVA Calendar Contest. All photographers that are chosen to be included in the 2015 calendar will be entered into a drawing for an INNOVA DISCatcher Sport Target. Submit photos by September 30th.

Email: innova.calendar@innovadiscgolf.com



Some tips for submitting photos:

DISCatchers rule! If the course does not feature INNOVA DISCatchers, try to avoid close ups of the targets. The calendar has featured many courses over the years that didn't have INNOVA targets including DeLaveaga, Fountain Hills and Blue Ribbon Pines.

Fall/Winter/Spring. We always need seasonal photos. There was a lot of snow in the US last year, we hope to see a lot of snow photos submitted. We also appreciate fall colors and spring flowers.

Action! Everyone loves wonderful disc golf landscapes. However, they become even more compelling when there is a player in the photo. The player doesn't have to be of a top pro. We also want photos that feature families, kids, ladies and older players.

Editing allowed. If you think you have a great high resolution photo that would look even better with some editing or special effects, go ahead. We also accept artistic submissions. (Be sure to save the original files just in case.)


Submit photos by September 30th. Winners Announced October 15th. Full Details here:

2015 INNOVA Calendar Contest

Here are some featured photos from past calendars:

Blue Ribbon Pines, Minnesota



Birds of Paradise, NorCal



Vail Adventure Ridge, Colorado

One of the best pictures I have ever taken of myself. I am looking forward to submitting several more pictures this year.

Our league had our annual night round this past Friday. I showed up early enough to get some daylight practice in. Nailed this ace at Plymouth Creek #9. Seven years ago I aced this hole twice in the same week. I have not been that close again until Friday.

A few hours later I taped up my GStar Roadrunner with some glow duct tape and absolutely rocked the course for one of my best rounds there in a long time. Glow duct tape is by far the best thing I have ever used for night rounds. No trouble spotting my disc from 300 feet away.

Do you need a UV flashlight to charge the glow duct tape?

Oh, and great photos.
