Der Disc Golf Sport in Deutschland wächst und wächst. Immer öfter werden neue Disc Golf Parcours eröffnet und mit etwas Glück erhält die Kölner Disc Golf Szene ziemlich bald einen eigens für sie zugeschnittenen Parcour im Kölner Stadtwald. Und das Kettenjeklüngel wird sich noch weiter in die Kölner Urbanklänge untermischen.
Das folgende Video zeigt außergewöhnliche Aufnahmen des Disc Golf Sports. Die Aufnahmen entstanden aus einer Kooperation zwischen dem “The Invisible String” Regisseur Jan Bäss, Ruben Teshmar und Johanna Geier während der Deutschen Meisterschaft 2012 in Eberswalde.

Um den Spaß mit der Disc in die Welt hinaus zu tragen startete die FPA (Freestyle Players Association) Ende 2012 das “Spread the Jam” Projekt. Im Rahmen von “Spread the Jam” wurden bisher drei Teaser veröffentlicht die den Freestyle Sport in einem etwas anderem Licht zeigen. Sichere Quellen haben durchsickern lassen, dass man auf die Fortsetzung dieses Projektes gespannt sein darf!
Spread the Jam Project Nr 1 – The Eye
Spread the Jam Project Nr 2 – The Great Wall

Ein Auszug aus der Spread the Jam Idee:
“The Spread the Jam Project is a video campaign funded by the Freestyle Players Association’s Spread the Jam Grant. It is intended to introduce a wide audience to the sport and artform known as Freestyle Frisbee. The New York Series is shot in unique urban locations around New York City that exemplify the guerrilla attitude of freestyle. Freestyle frisbee is an incredible subculture with pockets all around the world. It can be done anywhere by anyone. Spread the word. Spread the jam. Freestyle.

Emma Kahle, die für viele überraschend im vorigen Jahr mit Lori Daniels Weltmeisterin in der Women-Division wurde, spricht im Interview wie sie zum Frisbeesport gekommen ist und stellt die Unterschiede zwischen Freestyle Frisbee und Ultimate Frisbee ziemlich gut dar.
Emma erklärt was und wer sich hinter dem Projekt “Spread the Jam” verbirgt. Sie hat im ersten Video des Spread the Jam Projektes mitgewirkt:

Die in den letzten Jahren zielstrebig aufsteigenden italienischen Jammer Claudio Cigna und Marco Prati zeigen in Paganello eine unglaubliche Show die man auch als “NewEurostyle” bezeichnen könnte. Claudio und Marko spielen fast Dropless, wobei der eine Drop kaum ins Gewicht fällt. Begleitet,wie in Paganello üblich, von einer großartigen Stimmung.
is coming over as a kind of ambassador and playing some Freestyle Frisbee shows in March… “if we would like to take part in these shows” – well, geil, of course. So, when we contacted him last week we got a reply starting with following words: “So stoked to see you and jam with you and get to know you better.” And I think to myself “aha, whatever that means, geil, we’re on. Jamming with a former member of the Bud Light Team sounds splendid.” And actually, it wasn’nt too bad – we’ve had a smoking time last week. And here is how it went…
For the kick off show on Saturday Judith Haas and Florian Hess who arrived on Friday were invited as big support. Together we went to the store around 2 p.m. and were introduced to Chipper and his wife Kelly. Since the first show was scheduled at 5 p.m. and the weather was just lovely (well, not as nice as in California right now but still…), we did not spend much time chatting but rather warmed up in front of the store which is located in the center of Cologne.
Naturally, the shopping center is very crowded on Saturdays and we had to claim some space with outstanding moves and coops. But the center is not only crowded by costumers but by street musicians as well. Among these Rasmus understood how to fire us up. Cheers for that and sorry for irritating the passengers!
Inside we played the shows on a covered pool which is in the middle of the store and can be seen from three different stories (have a look at pictures to get an impression).
We tried to demonstrate some kind of journey through the history of Freestyle starting with a “throw and catch” session by Chipper and Sascha Scherzinger which was to be continued by a short Coop (Ilka, Waldi & Harry) and a Mixed show by Flo and Judith. The show was finished by quick mob-up which was initiated by a Pairs Jam and successive entering jammers. The feedback of the audience was super and we got better from show to show. During the last show Freddie Finner from Karlsruhe who spontaneously decided to accompany Judith and Flo could be talked into joining the last jam and hit huge combos finished by big air catches on the spot. Afterwards, Polyana & Felbel played a beautiful set of singer songwriter songs inside the Globetrotter restaurant finished by a memorable singing the blues of Chipper. (but what do you expect of someone having touched the guitar of Stevie Ray Vaughn?) All together we refreshed at a brewery with food and beer ending up in a Jazz Bar. Content and totally exhausted we went home to rest.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
… of which we needed plenty (after all, we jammed on Sunday as well) and it was probably wise to skip Monday and Tuesday. We’ve been lucky that we had some fresh support from Berlin. Sascha Höhne happened to be in Cologne that day and also he did not want to miss the opportunity to jam with Chipper and us at such a nice spot. Although the crowd was not as big as on Saturday we certainly enjoyed ourselves (and seemingly those present as well) also on Wednesday and Thursday having exceptional jams and excellent beers at the Globetrotter Restaurant. Friday came as quick as it is usual when having a good time and it was the last day we got to jam the pool. It is hard to believe that one get so used to a nice spot and surrounding so fast. Nevertheless, in many respects it was at least a “rich” time with many new and pleasant acquaintances made among which we would like to mention Anina, Susanne and Kurt from Patagonia as well as Ole and all the other staff from Globetrotter who made this week possible and treated us very supportive and kindly. Besides, I think it often simply adds some extra motivation when jamming with other people than the “regulars”. In sum, there were pretty good reasons to mobilize for the last jams.
Originally, Chipper had the idea of finishing the shows with a “sacrifice gitis” into the pool but he was not allowed to due to safety concerns and actually, now we are happy he did not do it; you should always safe something for next time and this way we can occupy ourselfs planing a guerrilla jam inside the Globetrotter INCLUDING a sacrifice gitis
Although I still don’t know the exact translation of being stoked by now, I guess that I could get a glimpse of its meaning and that I can tell that it is not restricted to describe momentary states of mind. In this sense we would like to thank all those who we’ve met during the week and those making it possible to share the stoke.

Freestyle Eurostyle in Person von Mark Trout und Justino Miguel Sisler bei einem Winterindoor-Jam unter der “Kuppel”, unterstützt vom disCollegen Harry.
Einige Monate sind nach dem Besuch von Mark Trout und Justino Miguel Sisler aus Bowling Green (Ohio) vergangen. Nachdem Sie Weihnachten in Europa gefeiert haben, sind die Jungs nach Ohio zurückgekehrt. Doch Mark Trout hielt es nicht lange ohne die Europäische Freestyle Community aus! Ende Februar wurde Mark wieder in Europa gesichtet, nämlich in Prag beim Frisbeercup. Yeah Mark, that`s how it goes!
