PROFESSIONAL DISC GOLFER RAISES AWARENESS FOR AUTISM 11/21/2015 National Disc Golf Champion Scott Stokely to Hold Special Needs Disc Golf Class and Charity Doubles Tournament


Scott Stokely is a man on a mission. That mission is to raise Autism awareness through the sport he loves, Disc Golf. Working with local Disc Golf Clubs across the North East, Scott will be hosting a series of 26 Charity Disc Golf Tournaments and free Special Needs Clinics this winter. In doing so, he hopes to spread knowledge, Autism awareness, and empower others to be proactive in their support of people with special needs in their communities. Proceeds raised during these events benefit the Franziska Racker Center, an organization that helps individuals with disabilities and their families.

Scott and the Sedgley Woods Disc Golf Club will be hosting a Charity Doubles Disc Golf event at Sedgley Woods Disc Golf Course (in Philadelphia, PA) on Saturday, Nov 21 at 10:30am (Snow or Shine!). Cost of entry is $60 a team, and all registrants will receive a special edition disc and shirt. New players and kids are encouraged to come out and join in the play! Registration can be done online at . In addition, a free “Intro to Disc Golf” class for kids and adults with special needs at 9:00am. Any person with special needs and their families are encouraged to attend!

How can you participate?
1. If you know anyone with special needs, bring them to the free 9:00am class and let Scott introduce this fantastic and affordable hobby that can be enjoyed by the whole family. and/or…
2. Bring a partner and play in the $60 per team doubles round at 10:30am. Everyone of all skill levels are invited to play and every person who enters will receive a $20 golf disc and a shirt just for playing!

Through these events Scott hopes to promote what he calls “Blue Power”. “Blue Power is about knowledge and ending ignorance about autism.” Says Scott, “Everyone who comes to our events will leave knowing a little about this issue affecting millions around the world. Just like pink is the color of breast cancer awareness, blue is the color of autism awareness.” According to, when someone has Blue Power they are encouraged to do two things;
1. Share information about Autism to others and help spread Blue Power.
2. Interact with people with autism and their families and help end the isolation they often feel.

Scott’s ultimate goal is for everyone who plays disc golf to have Blue Power, and through Disc Golf make the world a better place.

Sedgley Woods is a Buncha Ace-Holes

What a week for Aces at Sedge!

On Thursday during tags, Aaron Fahey hit #19 from the long (Red) tee. Josh H, Justin Case, and Caleb were on the card. The shot was a perfect high S hook anhyser with a Tee Bird that went through the protected trees and the top of the hill. Aaron wasn’t sure if it was in or not but it was confirmed by Miss Anne’s group who were walking from 27 when it smashed in!

On Sunday, Caleb Hoff scored a total of 2 strokes on #14 Blue and #25 Blue combined!

“I wasn’t in the best mood since I was playing like sh** otherwise. Both with the same disc though. Yoga matts Old champ wasp.” Said Hoff.

Aces Deuces for Life, yo. Send us your Hole-In-One stories and pictures.
