Default A DG event like no other

On Sept 20th the Ausable Chasm tourist attraction (a 2 mile long, 150 deep, narrow sandstone gorge) in the Adirondacks of NY will host the 3rd annual "Steady" Ed Safari. This tournament, sponsored by DGA, is guaranteed to be like nothing you have ever experienced before...unless you have played a tournament in which you threw discs off 100 ft cliffs, over whitewater rapids, into baskets perched under towering rock formations, in which a raft guide ferrys you across the river and kayakers fetch your floating discs. DGA sponsors the event and allows the use of "Steady" Ed's name (and discs) because this event truly embraces Ed's motto of "the most fun wins" as it focuses on a fun atmosphere more than a competitive tournament.

Read Rattling Chains blog post from last year for a great description of the event:

This sounds like a hell of a good time. Too bad it's 1500 miles from Oklahoma.

the last link in OP is a short vid. I'm trying to dig up more. I ran the event the first 2 years but moved away last fall and lost a lot of pics and vids on my old computer. The new Rec Director decided to keep the event going but had his hands full and got a late start with promotion and registration. Hoping he gets a good turn out.

What a fun looking deal. Would be worth planning a vacation around this.
Reminds of a somewhat similar event that Davey Mac, from Gateway used to run. I would have to dig around to post some info on that one; and I don't think it exists any more. But, he ran a somewhat similar, and crazy safari tourney for a few years, that I made it my business to try and find my way to play it. However, I was not successful.
