I haven't seen any at the Walgreens or Speedways that I've been to up here.

I've been to multiple Speedways in Madison with discs. They aren't advertised very well, as they are locked in a small cage thing and you will need to ask an employee to unlock it. I know the speedway on the south end coming into town had them the last couple times I've stopped.

Speedway is supplied by Gotta Go Gotta Throw but I had heard a rumor that wasn't happening anymore possibly? I don't recall where said rumor came from either however.

The one by valley view has discs, but they are really expensive.

I grew up in IA and now live in Michigan. Meijer is pretty awesome, but my goodness do I miss Hy-Vee. Even more so I miss Fareway because they have the best meat counter.

To make this sorta on topic: Meijer carries some baseline discs. Never saw any in a hy-vee or a fareway or a Walgreens.

The Hy-Vee Brand French Onion dip obliterates any other brand out there. I've gotten several people hooked

Disc golf is bad, but selling Cigarettes is ok? How does cigarettes fit their image of health and wellness?

Always had my suspicions that, as a group, we're not well...

...not to mention all the sugar laden candy and drinks, and junk food snacks they sell.
