Captain's Log: Star Date July 23, 2021
It's been a while since my last entry. It has been a far out journey trying to keep plastic flying discs coming fast enough to keep up with you all.
Cosmic has been evolving on many fronts...let's catch up!
Woods-Doc - A Cosmic Gathering was held on June 19th at Doc Cramer Disc Golf Course in Manahwkin, NJ. What a great day! A fun course on a hot day!!
Cosmic Amateur 3's was on July 10th at Alcyon Woods Disc Golf Course in Pitman, NJ and this one was a little different than the others. This field was Amateurs Only and was full of good vibes as a lot of people were playing in their first or second tournament ever. The excitement was palpable and everyone had a really good time (Except Vinny D who lost his knee on the first hole. He is doing well now and healing!)
Cosmic Howl is tonight!!! Our first ever glow tournament on the night of a Full Moon! Owoooooo!!!!
Deaf Jersey Open 9 - Cosmic donated prizes as sponsorship for the 9th Deaf Jersey Open which was held on April 24th
Three Little Birds Perinatal - June 19th, Father's Day BBQ and Craft & Heal event was a hit! Two lucky dads won prizes in the Disc Golf competition. Cosmic donated discs, prizes and a free clinic. Cosmic was happy to help support the varied needs of the 1 in 4 families walking the journey of pregnancy/infant loss. Special shout out to Sean Carpenter for running an instructional clinic and growing the sport on behalf of Cosmic. https://www.threelittlebirdsperinatal.org
Dan Carlton went out to Utah to compete in the 2021 PDGA World Championships in Ogden, UT. Dan placed 21st overall in the putting competition and played well overall....cashing in putts from all over the place!!! Oh, and while he was out there he married fellow Cosmic Crew member Nickol Kapitanic (Now Nickol Carlton). Congratulations!!!
Becky Harris, Dana Lit and Nickol (then Kaptianic) Carlton all competed at the Women's Global Event back in May in Sellersville, PA. Becky finished in second place in the Open Division, while Dana and Nickol finished first and second respectively in Amateur Masters Women 40+ Division. Girl power!!!
Speaking of girl power...
Caris Fischer was just added to Cosmic Crew this week. Caris, age 15, started playing late in 2020 and has been getting better ever since. We are happy to have her join the Crew and support her on her Cosmic journey!

DYEING TO WORK TOGETHER
My Chemical Throwmance (https://www.instagram.com/mychemicalthrowmance/) has been working with Cosmic to supply Dye, Stencil, and other discs of wonderment as we are getting some really cool functional flying artwork out there for the people to enjoy!
That's all for now... Time to get ready to play in the woods at night!!!
