The “Steady” Ed Safari is an very unique event unlike any that you'll ever play. PDGA Tier XC sanctioning. Participants must be at least 13 years old and in good physical condition. The Safari holes that play inside, over and thru the Chasm, are extremely physically demanding! Be ready to throw off of 100 foot cliffs, over the river to baskets next to unique rock formations and ferried by raft by guides across the river to finish out holes.
The players pack will include (1) of your choice of the “Steady” Ed Signature Discs (Blowfly, Blowfly II, Blunt Gumbputt and Powerdrive Gumbputt) and a 2 day admission to Ausable Chasm. Additions to the players pack TBD. FYI the Blowfly and Blunt Gumbputt float and maybe retrieved if thrown into the water by kayak staff.
