As I pack for an long weekend, Northern Michigan disc golf trip. I think it might be fun to provide some resources and how to plan out a road trip. Considerations on what to pack differently for a trip vs casual/tournament play. How some research different things to do while on a road trip.

Why beginning players should never start with a high speed driver! For goodness sakes, it seems like that has been an increasingly common theme within the last few years.

The articles will be for a manufacturer's website and a general audience is the target audience. I don't pretend to be some type of all-knowing guru but I do have quite a lot of experience to speak from. Thank you for the suggestions so far!

Top 5 is going to be hard to narrow down.. Lots of really good courses in Michigan... Maybe call it, "my five favorite Michigan courses"..

how about a piece on pay to play courses. How many are there, what's the future look like, how to they compare to free courses, what are some successful P2P courses, and what are the factors that make them successful?

I'm not sure people were talking about articles when they said this company "needs to step their game back up." While your crowdsourcing your work instead of coming up with your own original ideas, I'd propose an article about MJ.

I am not sure how crowdsourcing ideas for an article is a bad thing since the articles are for the crowd that the information is being sourced from. Also you seem to have mistaken discmania for discraft. All in all your attempt at bashing me fell flat on its face thank you for bumping my post though I appreciate it.

Saw Michigan and completely missed the Discmania logo and signature. I'm a bit surprised your CEO would even want you asking our opinions after he vowed to stay away from this forum. How about an article about Jussi's vision for disc golf coverage? He keeps saying live coverage doesn't fit, so what is his vision?
