Hi my name is Caden, I was born in Boulder, CO and raised in Superior, Colorado. I graduated from Monarch High School in 2018. I was first introduced to Disc Golf at the age of 9. Even though I didn’t start playing until Covid happened back in 2020. I always had a passion to play sports and to keep active. Sports like basketball, football, soccer, wrestling, and going to the gym, or hiking with friends.
Disc Golf on the other hand was and is like an addiction for me. Everything about it, like the courses/views you get to see, places you travel to that you never thought you would, the people you meet, the community as a whole, and my personal favorite being able to see your improvement and knowing every time you play you either feel that or see that improvement.
Hey there, I am Tom. I am a Colorado Native and have lived in Arvada for the past 40 years. I was first introduced to a frisbee by my Uncle Sam when I was 7 years old and that’s how we spent our time together. Sam went to school at CSU with a Frisbee legend, Bill Wright. That shared love of a toy made its way to me at a young age. I always had a frisbee, I grew up playing conventional sports and skateboarding, but I always had a frisbee of some sort and pulled friends into just playing catch or making up our own games. Never knowing about Disc Golf until about 25 years ago when some friends introduced me to the game at Johnny Roberts Disc Golf Course, in which I coincidentally bought a house 70 paces from the first tee. I was hooked, it was not hard to be, to say the least… no seriously, just hooked. What an example of being in the right place at the right time. Nights, weekends, multiple rounds a day, I just could not get enough, it became a hobby and then a passion.
Being on the course so much, you start seeing the same people and find yourself expanding your friend base pretty quickly. Lucky for me, I made some amazing friends. And really when I say I was lucky, I was. I met frisbee icons, learned from them, and absorbed all I could from them regarding the game and what Disc Golf meant as a community, and what Disc Golf could do for a community. Soon after, in my very green Disc Golf career, I found myself as Vice President of Mile High Disc Golf Club, and the Tournament Director of The Johnny Roberts Memorial. Again, I absorbed this, took it all in, and never looked back. Arvada Disc Golf has enriched my life in so many ways, from the people that I spend time with, on the course, running an event with, or hanging at the shop with is what it’s all about and what keeps me throwing discs. It is a frisbee family.
Mile High Disc Golf instilled in me what it is to give back to the community and a way to give back to the thing I loved, meant, and means a lot to me. Whether it’s running Johnny Roberts with my friends or helping by volunteering in another part of the state or being able to create art for an event or athlete, I love to be there for our friends and community.
Hi, my name is Wrecks. Born on 11-5-2017, I worked security for another owner in his backyard for about 18 months, it was so very boring, never got to do anything. Then My Daddy Mark re-homed me and my life changed. After 18 months at the first place, with Mark, I got my first toy and learned how to chase it. I got to learn how nice humans really are working at the shop with you guys and Dad (thank you all so very much for that ). What a blast, getting all the love from the customers, my favorite part is when Betsy, the UPS lady comes and sees me, she is my favorite !! My main job is to greet people and make sure they are happy and feel welcome, if you ever are feeling down, even if you don’t need any Discs, stop by and spend some time with Wilber and me. We are guaranteed to cheer you up.
