Somehow Tim who runs dgcoursereview.com figured out how to rig a camera on a disc golf disc, and filmed some (shaky) videos of a disc in flight. Pretty cool proof-of-concept experiment video. Looking forward to pictures of the camera rig.

Hudson Springs Park Disc Golf Course – New Tee Signs
The Summit DGA disc golf group has been doing some serious work on the Hudson Springs Park disc golf course. Most recently they updated the tee signs, and I designed them for the club. I think they came out looking great! Much better than the old ones at least.
Disc Beeper is a mysterious new gadget for disc golfers. From the website:
Disc Beeper is an electronic device that is centrally placed underneath a Disc or Frisbee that allows players to easily find their Disc or Frisbee especially during the sport “Disc Golf.” This device only weighs 6 grams and shows absolutely no noticeable effect on disc flight. Disc Beeper also has a waterproof design. It has 3 distinct modes that allows up to 3 players to play at once. Disc Beeper has a push-button to turn it on requiring 550 grams of force to engage. Once the Disc Beeper is turned on, there is a 45 second delay to allow launch and attempted retrieval, allowing the user to throw it and will beep every 3 seconds until you turn it off. Disc Beeper is rechargeable via included micro usb cord. It holds up to 7-8 hours under 1 charge of 1 hour.
I think every disc golf player out there has thought of this at some point. A July 2012 release date is mentioned on their Facebook page. Interested to give this a try.
