REI is opening a store in Silverdale WA. There is one small sporting goods store in the area that sells discs. When I asked them about Vibram they said they don't have the cash to place the initial order. Keeping in mind the fact that there are so many DG courses here the county had to shut one down (dhalaiwood, at Scott Papa's home) shouldn't Silverdale be an ideal market for Vibram at REI? Granted, I've never seen a Vibram disc on a course here that I didn't buy and give to someone else. So as far as I know I am the only one buying Vibram. So I would suggest REI Silverdale as a retailer. If not I would be more th
an happy to continue spreading rubber love on my own.

I hope this goes well and REI starts selling disc at other locations. Stafford Woods is a new course in Voorhees NJ and there is a REI close by in Marlton. The manager of the store plays disc golf and has helped us on work days installing the course. He has expressed interest in sponcering a tournament. With Disc Golf being new to this area and very few places to buy discs his store might be a good fit for Vibram.

seems an odd choice to close one down. Any reason besides too many?

Zoning laws. Apparently you can't create a public park on private property.

I like hearing the REI store ideas, but suspect no more will be added until we get some results from the initial stores. Also, I do not think VDG will be on their online store, but I'm not sure about this.

Also, have you considered packaging a three disc "starter set" with a Ridge, an Ibex, and a beginner-friendly driver? I have the impression that the Innova starter set is the best value, and likely the best selling, of the dg items at REI. With the pretty colors y'all produce, you could really draw attention with a well-designed package of three.
You may have to wait until Atlanta comes on board. I like the idea of a Vibram set, always have liked this idea.

My best guess would be sometime in April.

I think a great set would be: Sole (or Ridge), Ibex, Trak

That would be amazing and would likely get more casual players throwing rubber.

Those were almost pure rubber. I'm assuming your "vomit" color would be called "amber honey" by us.
