Nikko Locastro: Disc Golf Expansion Project

Hey Guys,
I've been working closely with Nikko Locastro to help make his Disc Golf Expansion Project a reality. He has some incredible ideas and needs support from the devoted golfers here on our boards.

We are currently in the process of developing flyers for the Disc Golf Expansion Team and would really benefit from your help. Nikko is currently looking for pictures that embody the spirit of disc golf. The ideals of the "DGE" is to not only create a movement that builds disc golf for families, but makes disc golf more accessible to new players.

If you have pictures that you don't mind Nikko including in the presentation, or would be interested in joining the Street Team for the Disc Golf Expansion Project, please email Nikko directly at nikkolocastro@live.com

More details to come in the future. Things are starting to take shape!
"Throw Love"

Get nikko on here so he can 1 on 1 relate ideas to fans/fellow players for ideas. I have seen McBeast and Shoestrings on here recently but mainly for chatting. This is the #1 site for disc golf outside of some of the facebook groups.

Just a teaser...

For sure.
Nikko has devised some great ideas for this project.
A few of the main objective are:
-Develop a team of dedicated members to spread the accessibility of disc golf
-Help get disc golf into schools from elementary to the collegiate level
-Create Disc golf Brand: "Throw Love" that gives back to the Disc Golf Expansion project
-Plan the first disc golf festival: complete with music and great rounds
-Several other ideas that could take shape.

I myself am on the verge of student teaching and I plan to work with the school to make the children aware of the glory of disc golf. Ideally I will be able to get Nikko into some local schools to do what he does best.

For me this project offers the opportunity to work with a pro golfer to make the sport that I love more accessible to children and that, to me, is the ultimate step in growing Disc Golf as a whole.

Oh and I'll make Nikko get an account!

A disc golf festival? I'm sure that will turn out positive image-wise for our sport.

When I talked to Nikko, he wanted to have a flying disc festival, not just disc golf. Ultimate, freestyle, golf, and any other flying disc game you can come up with
