May of 2013 looks to be an exciting month for Bachnein. If you’ve seen us in person, you know we have a few new items this season. If you know us through Instagram or Twitter, than you may just be finding out about our new Dri Fit shirt and the Throw Local t-shirts.
In just about a week, Bachnein will be at the Sap Bucket Open in Waterbury, Vermont. If you’re not familiar with the Sap Bucket, it’s notable for a few reasons. Not only do you get some classic northern New England disc golf, but it happens to be brought to you by the Alchemist Brewery, maker of Beer Advocate’s Top Beer, Heady Topper. As if that’s not enough, the Sap Bucket is part of the Green Mountain Point Series, which is sponsored by Three Penny Taproom, a beer bar rated as World Class by Beer Advocate and the always fabulous and super authentic Mad Taco.
What we’re trying to say is that Bachnein is happy to be a part of it.
Later in the month we’ll make an appearance in far northern Vermont at the very cool Black Falls in Montgomery, Vermont. If you’re looking for a reason to come visit our fair state, check out what they have to offer. Disc Golf Course Review happens to rate the course a very impressive 4.61. Plus, it’s a course that’s gotten much nicer in the past 12 months. Some come check it out.
In the meantime, Throw Local.
When it comes to disc golf in Vermont, we’re not always as blessed with good weather as many of you in other parts of the country. Of course, here there’s plenty of skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing, and cross country work to be done, but the kind of precipitation that’s good for those sports isn’t quite as good for our disc golfing.
So, as April rolls around each year, those of us up north really get excited about disc golf weather. And for those of us at Bachnein, we have more than just good weather to look forward to in 2013. We’ve got the first two events in the Green Mountain Point Series looming on the horizon- The Pinnacle Spring Run-Off in Newport, New Hampshire and the Sap Bucket in Waterbury, Vermont. We’ve got a fresh looking website thanks to the outstanding efforts of Taylor Johnson. And we’ve got a few new items to debut in the Bachein 2013 line.
In the next few days you’ll see our new merch on our website and in our store front. For now we can tell you there’s a dri-fit coming in one of your favorite classic designs and some soft, new t-shirts with Bachnein’s newest slogan and a fresh look. Later in the season you’ll see some things to put on your heads and arms along with some things to stick to your water bottles and cars.
2013 looks to be a tremendous year not just in Vermont, but for our growing sport of disc golf in general. Bachnein’s happy to be a part of it. Look for our new stuff in the next few days. In the meantime, Throw Local.

Bachnein has been a part of the disc golf scene since early 2011. We’ve spent that time working on logos and prints, designing disc golf apparel, and working some Vermont and New England disc golf tournaments.
Starting today, we’re officially launching our online store. Now, we’ll be able to ship our apparel nationwide and you’ll get to see what so many Vermont disc golfers have been excited about for the last few weeks.
So, feel free to check things out. We’ve got some great dri-fit super shirts, some heady disc golf t-shirts, amazing FlexFit hats, zippered hoodies and some legit ladies gear. Our screen printing and embroidering are done in Burlington, Vermont and we’ve worked hard to bring you quality clothing that’s worth your money.
If you can’t make it to the Green Mountain State this year, then you can still get your disc golfing hands on some of our favorite gear, wherever you may live.
Maybe your next round of disc golf could be played in some sweet Bachnein gear.
After an amazing debut season in 2011, Vermont’s own Bachnein Disc Golf is happy to be kicking off 2012. The opening event of the Green Mountain Point Series was at the Pinnacle Disc Golf Course in Newport, New Hampshire on April 28. The Bachnein crew was on hand to play disc golf, show off some gear, and provide Bachnein Bucks to the winning AM players.
Pinnacle is a beautiful 5600 foot course that’s rated as an impressive 3.91 on Disc Golf Course Review. It starts off innocently enough, near some high school recreational facilities, but quickly gets steep and technical. Not quite as steep and technical as the 104 foot ski jump you play around, but pretty impressive either way. Pinnacle really is Northern New England woods disc golf at its finest and Bachnein was happy to be there to help kick things off.
