Steve Pike

If you follow Discmania on social media, chances are this name rings a bell. Steve Pike may just very well be the biggest Discmaniac in North America, and we appreciate it more than our limited English vocabulary can express. Steve hails from Ottawa, Canada and in his 5-year journey as a Disc Golfer he has grown into one of the most influential promoters of the sport in Canada. While Steve may not have a 4-digit rating (at least yet), he is very ambitious about promoting the sport and Discmania in Canada. A big warm Canadian welcome to the team for Steve!

Wow. I never realized the Club had such an influential player in the Canadian disc golf scene. Guess I would have to leave my little fish bowl of Ottawa to be in the know.

From the Discmania link, pretty impressive:

Quote:
We here at Discmania take pride in considering ourselves as ambitious and hard working group of people. We get fired up by our mission to drive the sport of Disc Golf forward. We believe this sport requires professional level promotion to attract the players and businesses that boost this sport to the mainstream consciousness. #GrowTheSport can only carry a part of the load. The time has come to #PromoteTheSport.

If you don't believe us, just look at our home country of Finland - Disc Golf has gone from being a marginal sport almost no one had heard about to a national past time activity in the 5 years we have been actively promoting the sport. Our biggest tournaments are broadcasted live on national TV. You can go to pretty much any sporting goods store in Finland and find a vast selection of discs. Our course network has grown from sub 100 to over 420 in five years. Not bad for a country of 5.5 million people. To top everything off, Our CEO Jussi Meresmaa has been nominated for a 'Sports culture deed of the year' in the very prestigious Finnish Sports Gala for leading the expansion of Disc Golf in Finland. If we have anything to do with it, what has happened in Finland will eventually happen in many other European countries and US too.


Congratulations Steve on becoming a Discmania Team Member.
