We have PARAGON DISC GOLF swag to giveaway at 750 likes of the facebook page… Let’s share with the friends and get this done… Got more giveaways in the hopper.
So Tiger Tank did a live show down in St. Louis… it it was captured via an I-Phone from the audience. Remember if you are a discgolfer and you have a band – we’d love to feature you here on TALKdg.
So take a listen to Paragon Disc Golf‘s, Miles Parkhill and the rest of the band, Tiger Tank.
You might recognize the “sound” of Tiger Tank as it is made up of past members of PARK.
Tiger Tank is based out of Springfield, IL – so it wasn’t much of a trek to get down to The Gramophone down in St. Louis. We are hoping a couple of more live shows are planned… Take a listen:
Tiger Tank live @ The Gramophone in St. Louis – “Boom Goes the Answer”
Tiger Tank – studio version of “Boom Goes the Answer”
You can buy the EP here…
With the interest that was generated from folks checking out Tiger Tank when they found out members were disc golfers… we decided to reach out and look for more bands who partake in the passion of disc golf… You in a band? You want us to feature your latest tracks? Reach out to email@example.com with the particulars… and let’s see if we can’t get you featured here on TALKdg so folks can give you a listen…
Seriously, who can’t use some good tunes on the course?

The venture started the other night while chatting with a disc golf buddy on Facebook. He asked me how far I was from Glenview, Illinois. I told him about 30 to 45 minutes. He gave me a link to craigslist with a basket for sale. The listing said the basket was from Gilson Park in Wilmette, IL. I messaged another disc golfer who had some history of the course. After some research it’s believed that Wilmette had the first disc catching baskets in the state of Illinois.
I started to think about the historical value of the basket. Did Steady Ed himself make this basket? I discussed this with the club officers of DISContinuum DGC and we decided that we wanted it. I contacted the person in charge of the listing and decided to go meet him. In the mean time I started to get replies to some of my message board posts. It’s believed the course was installed between 1976 to 1977. Everyone is telling me that the course was pulled sometime in the mid 80′s. The park is only a few miles North of Northwestern University and located on Lake Michigan. The course got so popular it could not handle the traffic and was removed.
I was excited pulling into the driveway to pick it up. The basket was planted in the backyard. It sounds crazy but as an avid disc golfer the original Mach 1 looked like a piece of art. The owner told me that basket had been in the same place since the day he purchased it. I didn’t even haggle with the $150 price because it was in excellent condition. After I left I drove over to Gilson Park. It was only a few miles away. It was hard for me to imagine that a 18 hole disc golf course was there.
When I got home a friend of mine posted the photos below. It’s the front and back of a flyer from the 1979 WXRT 4th Annual Frisbee Day. The band UFO played in the park.
