I happened to catch a commercial today advertising a Disc Golf segment of Ripley's Believe it or Not. Apparently someone wants their ashes turned into a DG disc. It's airing 9pm Wednesday on TBS (channel 47)

That "someone" is none other than "Steady" Ed Headrick:

This is from the website of the Columbus Flyers Disc Golf Club:


---------------------------------------------
"Ripley's Believe it or Not" is doing a feature on Ed Headrick's wish to have discs made of his ashes.

Frisbee Ashes - Ed Headrick is the father of the modern Frisbee and one of the innovators of disc golf. His dying wish was to be cremated and for his ashes to be molded and cast into the flying disc he loved so much.

STEADY ED MEMORIAL DISCS ON RIPLEY'S, THE TV SHOW http://www.tbssuperstation.com/series/EpisodeFeatures/0,,4319,00.html

Scott Keasey of the DGA reports that the segment which Ripley's produced on the production of the Steady Ed memorial discs will be airing next week. The show airs on The Superstation TBS, Wednesday February 26th at 9 pm ET, 6 pm Pacific. The station's website mentions the following regarding the segment: Frisbee Ashes - Ed Headrick is the father of the modern Frisbee and one of the innovators of disc golf. His dying wish was to be cremated and for his ashes to be molded and cast into the flying disc he loved so much.

Scott says that for those on the west coast who might miss the 6 pm
show, the station will rebroadcast the episode that same night at 9 pm.
Also, it appears that the episode will be on rotation in reruns of
Ripley's and it is scheduled to be run again on May 21 in the same time
slots.
