This was another great year for the Chuckfest Disc Golf Tournament!! It was held in Calgary and Canmore, Alberta, Canada.
The tournament was a success and the Gateway discs were a huge hit. It came as a great surprise to everyone that they’d get such a cool disc to take away from the tourney. A bunch of guys were using their Wizards and Elements during the tourney and their shots always seemed to be parked next to the basket!
Here are the scores and a couple pictures from the event hosted by Kevin King!! Thanks!

At Gateway, we love to hear the success people are having using our products out on the disc golf courses around the country. We recently received a letter of thanks AND pictures. We are more than happy to share it. Here is an excerpt from the letter:
