What is “Sky is the Limit”? or “SkyDiscs.com”?
We are a “GrassRoots” Online Disc Golf Retailer from Western Pennsylvania/North East Ohio Region. As My grandfather would say “That’s the Brass Tax”
When I say “GrassRoots” my meaning is just this:
We are a Friends and Family style company. From our “Marketing Department” down to our “Sales and Accounting Department” We are a few souls doing the labors of many individuals.
When I started “Sky is the Limit” or www.SkyDiscs.com, I wanted to be the biggest retailer out there. “How do I do that with my limited resources and man-power?”, “How will WE stack up against the ones that have been doing this a lot longer? Customer Service? Free Shipping? LIVE VAST Inventory? Product Knowledge?”
Those can all be learned and processed. But how can WE stand out? What’s our niche in an already rapidly growing sport. (Which, by the way, I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF!!)
Custom Design. That’s My answer!! Final!! Yes, at some point I want “Sky is the Limit” to be HUGE!! Not a “corporate tie” operation but an AMAZING Retailer with all the great inventory to supply. For now I am going to listen to the words of My Father, “Work with what you have and the rest will fall into place.”
So with the help of Social Media, thank you again TalkDG for having us, as well as our “Followers” (I prefer Friends) on Twitter and “Fans” on Facebook, We bring you all a celebration of INDEPENDENCE!! We are having a #FreshPlastic Giveaway to Celebrate and Honor our new found friends!! For more details visit our website: www.SkyDiscs.com and click the #FreshPlastic Tab in the Top Right of the Nav Bar.
This is truly an amazing sport with an amazing following!! I am glad to have thrown my first disc and sank my first putt. My life will never be the same. I want to thank you all personally for helping me along my path to “Rattling Chains”. Thank You.

A few weeks ago, I posted a photo of a disc golf course that includes a gondola ride up and down the mountain to get to the course.
Needless to say, I was interested. The folks at Red River Ski Area saw the post and said “Hi” on Twitter. I reached out shortly after that to find out more information on the course. Turns out this gorgeous disc golf course is located in Northern New Mexico. The disc golf courses I play are surrounded by corn or soybean fields. Seriously. The courses are mainly flat, but still a lot of fun. When I see mountains in the background and a great location, I had to find out more about the course.
I got in contact with Sarah from Red River Ski Area to find out more! I found out that this family owned business wanted to put in a disc golf course. After settling on the idea, they reached out to some of the locals to get some tips on course design. I’m always happy to see a group want to expand into the ever growing world of disc golf!

After what was a very successful long weekend (with a big tip of the cap to our veterans), it’s finally time to launch the new look of All Things Disc Golf!
Along with the new logo, which we hope you like, we also have a new Facebook page! Yes, with only a few likes it looks quite small but big things start with just a few people!
If you are on Facebook, take a moment to “Like” the page, and then share it with your friends! don’t forget to tag us in Facebook photos too! https://www.facebook.com/AllThingsDiscGolf
In the next few weeks stay tuned for some new reviews, features, and more! Plus, we’ll look into a disc give away too soon! One thing I want to get out there right now is an email to submit any photos or videos from your disc golf events! Just a simple email to “submit [at] allthingsdiscgolf.com” (Minus the quotes and the correct @ symbol of course) will get your photos in line to be placed on the site and on our Facebook page!

I am a big fan of the Innova Official Website – topnotch…
And my day started with a little venture over to the site and I saw something that just doesn’t seem right. Why would Innova sell itself short on one of the bestest discs ever made? The site lists all Rocs together – as though they are the same…
Innova recognized the nuances of varying molds and plastics in the way it handled the putt and approach discs at the website and then just dumped all the Rocs together.
There are 7 Speed 2 Putt and Approach discs listed and 6 of them are variations of the Aviar. The seventh is the Rhyno – if you are curious.
7 different web pages to present you, the prospective disc buyer, all the variations of the Aviar – a disc most disc golfers will pitch or spin towards the basket from within the last 25 feet.
But that level of break-out doesn’t get applied to Rocs. The Rocs end up getting listed as The Roc - all together and giving them all the same flight description. This does Innova a disservice – why short change Rocs?
Aviars maybe Innova’s best selling disc, but the Rocs…

I’ve just finished a short little post over at 400bound.blogspot.com about a new disc golf towel that has hit the market. My friends in Southern California came up with this cool idea and saw it through to the end. Now the item is up on the Discovering The World Web site.
The towel is called the Maw ‘N’ Paw and I’ve been using one for a few weeks now. Living in the northwest I’ve been able to truly test this thing out. I’ve decided it’s the only towel I’ll ever need.
Check it out.
