TDIDI Army Barracks

Bunk Up and Hunker Down

You’ve stumbled yourself into the TDIDI Army Barracks.  I know, what the heck is that?!?  This is the unofficial home of the TDIDI Army!  A place where we’ve tried to organize and celebrate as much as possible about what make them so awesome.  They are the foundation that holds The Difference is Doing It up and have earned their own little corner here on the interweb!  There’s always room for another general in the TDIDI Army, in fact we’re actively recruiting.  Enlist below and join us on our conquest to spread the TDIDI Doing It vibe.

The Power of The TDIDI Army

Who is the TDIDI Army

In short, you and me…and the rest us!  The TDIDI Army materialized all on its’ own with no plan or foresight really.  I don’t even remember how the name came about.  It all kind of just happened seemingly at once, I turned around and there were 100’s then 1000’s of Doers standing under our TDIDI banner proudly holding disc dyes up in the air!  “Check this one out!” continues to ring through the crowd as our numbers increase.  Today the TDIDI Army is a collective of guys and gals who have given in to the addiction that comes with Doing It.  It’s that buzz that creating ignites inside that pulls us all back for more, and pulls us together for that matter!

Stronger Together

As the ranks of the TDIDI Army have grown so has our collective talent and knowledge base.  There are some seriously skilled artists and craftsmen and women scattered throughout the group who have helped to raise the bar for all of us.  It’s more than just the techniques and tricks of the talented circulating that have strengthened this company though.  The constant flow of new ideas and inspiration seem to be the real power in our growing numbers.  

The Circle of Inspiration

It all culminates into a Circle of Inspiration that just keeps on spinning and spinning.  From the ideas that endlessly circulate through all of us, out then to our turntables, and on to the fingertips ripping a perfect drive the Circle of Inspiration spins!  The TDIDI Army has effectively harnessed that inspiration and turned it into not only some seriously hot plastic, but a sustainable source of energy to forever fuel the mother ship…and the Circle of Inspiration spins!   

The Latest Work From The TDIDI Army

The hits just keep on coming out of the TDIDI Army!  Every day this feed changes and evolves as the basement disc dyer from all over the world decide to take the plunge into the wormhole.  Share your latest “Check this one out!” creation here and the inspiration that flows from it by tagging your work with #TDIDIArmy on Instagram.  Our vacuum sucker will grab it and dump it straight into this galley for the whole TDIDI Army to see!  Click on any picture to open up the full post, or the button at the bottom to be taken to the full TDIDI Army Disc Dye Gallery.

TDIDI: From the front lines

Featured TDIDI Army General

Ride the Glide Disc Golf Dyes

This month we would like to shine the spotlight on TDIDI Army General Alan Ekery.  He is one of the true TDIDI OG’s who have been there from the very beginning supporting the TDIDI cause.  His journey as a disc dyer has paced ours in many ways, while at the same time branching off into a style he has etched out as all his own.  Check out some of his work below, or visit Ride the Glide Dyed Golf Discs via the links under his smiling Ace Face to get a full dose!  Keep your eyes open for his coming Etsy store selling discs, acrylic pour paintings, and jewelry.

Keep Doing It Alan!

Disc Art Giveaway
Winner's Wall

For just over two years now we’ve been whipping up a TDIDI custom disc dye every month to be given away to one lucky hucker in the TDIDI Army.  It’s easily one of my favorite parts of the whole operation!  Every time I think about whoever won tearing into their package with excitement to check it out, I can’t wait to get started on the next one.  It’s been an easy way to say “Thank You” to all of you out there who have supported us and helped spread the TDIDI Vibe.  It really does mean the world to us!  Next month’s giveaway is right around the corner, click the button below to subscribe to our YouTube Channel where it all goes down.  You could be the next lucky hucker posing here on our Winner’s Wall!

"Why I Love Disc Golf Soooo Much!"

We asked the TDIDI Army one of life’s most important questions during a recent Disc Art Giveaway, “Why do you love Disc Golf soooo much?”  As usual they came correct with much more than the typical pre-canned answers that we’ve all heard before, tapping into the true spirit of Disc Golf and the freedom it bring us all.  You’ll find some of these scatter throughout the TDIDI Army Disc Dye Gallery as well, but reading them all together at once comes with a different impact that felt worthy of sharing here.

The Courses the
TDIDI Army Call Home

All of these pictures flipping by were sent in by TDIDI Army Generals around the globe to show off some of the beauty of the courses they call home.  You’ll find some of them used in different spots all over our website, but just like the “Why I Love Disc Golf” quotes above they pack a real punch all displayed together.  Enjoy a stroll through some of the TDIDI Army’s favorite hucking holes, give a click on any of them for the larger version.

TDIDI YouTube Channel

YouTube is where it all started for us.  Who would have guessed a few time lapse videos of drawing on my discs with Sharpies could have grown into all this?!?  This is the home of our Disc Dye Tutorials, Monthly Disc Art Giveaways, a whole bunch of Disc Golfing videos, and a few other sprinklings of Doing It here and there.  One way or another we try to keep the TDIDI airwaves broadcasting content via our YouTube Channel that have the Army coming back for more.  Below is the newest drop, or you can start with the playlists on the right to catch up with your own binge session!

TDIDI on Facebook

Facebook has become our main content feed to connect with the TDIDI Army, pretty much all of our other platforms feed into it.  We pump it full of all different kinds of disc golf and Doing It type stuff on the daily.  We’ve basically tried to make it a dope place for the TDIDI Army to hang out together when they’re not on the course.  

Monthly Giveaways

Following us on Facebook is probably the best way to stay on top of our Monthly Giveaways and make sure you get in early.  We keep it pinned to the top of the page, all you have to do is follow the link to enter…and share it with huck buddy!

Daily Disc Golf Content

We try to get something disc golfy up on our Facebook page everyday.  Whether it’s our latest TDIDI custom, a video clip of one of us kind of sucking at disc golf, or another live stream disc dye session, we keep the content coming over on Facebook.

Weekly Live Streams

Let’s call it “Weekly-ish Live Stream Disc Dye Sessions” going down not only on our Facebook page, but cross-streaming to YouTube and Twitch as well.  Sometimes we’re working on a commissioned order, other times experimenting with some new technique, every time we’re having a ton of fun hanging out with the TDIDI Army while we get it done.  You’ll also catch us going live from out on the course occasionally chasing that next Ace!

Check out one of our most recent Live Stream Disc Dye session above.  This is our first with all of the new fancy streaming equipment my baby sister got for me!  It’s about to start getting real hi-tech up in here!  

TDIDI on Instagram

Every disc (suitable for all audiences) to come spinning off the TDIDI turntable finds its’ way onto our Instagram page.  We use Instagram not only to reach all of the millenials that gave up on Facebook long ago, but also to give more of a  behind the curtain look at the process with more pictures of the steps taken along the way with each disc.  Our favorite part of TDIDI IG has undoubtedly become all of the activity to keep up with at #TDIDIArmy!

Chris
Wannebo

"Bone"

Bone brings the laughter…once he finally arrives.  Seriously, try and get all the way through Hole 1 still mad at him for being late, again.  Slow as he may be getting there he’s always quick in the box, and quick with a crooked smile follow by his signature chuckle.  Along with having mastered the art of driving in flip flops, Bone helps our Huck Crew keep things light and always filled with the kind of laughter that hurts your stomach a little!  Get ’em Bone!

Favorite putter: The Judge, and the verdict is in! None of us can keep up with Bone’s short game.

Favorite course: How can you not pick Druid Hill?!? Three full 18 holes courses, awesome DG scene, and all the trees you could ever want to hit!

PDGA #: (none currently) They’re just giving those out now?

Interests outside of DG: Camping, fishing, tending to his whip, driving fast, video games, chasing Mila around the yard, pool parties, and the occassional good old fashion game of shot dog.

Sports outside of DG: Ball golf, basketball, kayaking, snow boarding, biking, can-jam, smash ball, played some mean offensive line back in the day, figure skating, and interpretive dance.

The Basics on Old Man Cobbers

Nickname: Old Man Cobbers, Cobbers, Bob Cobb, Bobby Digital, Digital

Age: Obviously the old man of the crew…the beard is greying quickly.

Area of Origin: In the outskirts of the City of Brotherly Love, Go Birds!

Preferred throwing style: Backhand and Overhand

Favorite throw: Man I wish I could still throw my Thumber! While the old wing is recovering we’ll say it’s the Anny Backhand.

Favorite Driver: Scott Semposki edition “Crooked Dome” Star Sidewinder

Favorite Fairway: Tough call, but I’m going with my Champion Leopard3. Second disc I ever spun on the turntable.

Favorite Middy: Greg Renfro edition “War of the Worlds” Westside Tournament Warship


BObby
Curry

"Old Man Cobbers"

With several decades traveling around the sun, and the most senior member of our Crew, Cobbers has earned the Old Man ribbing he takes from the rest of the group.  Through all the travels and up and downs along the way, there’s always been Disc Golf there to escape to and feel like a kid again.  You can usually find him seeking that buzz that comes from one ripping off your fingertips, or spinning another fancied up piece of plastic from off his turntable in The Box.

Favorite putter:  TDIDI custom “D in the B” Discraft Zepplin. Maybe one of these days I’ll figure out how to use it.

Favorite course: I’m a real sucker for the whole circuit of courses we regularly tour in this great state of Maryland from Kinder Farm Park, to Rockburn, to Druid Hill. But I’ll always be a Philly boy at heart, and after just one round at Sedgley Woods I knew I was home. Love that place!

PDGA #: (none currently) Afraid my rating would break the system.

Interests outside of DG: Kind of into disc dyeing, painting, fishing, camping, rebuilding my camper for a 2nd life on the road, giving Jojo NBA 2K lessons (and other video games), and piloting the TDIDI Warship.

Sports outside of DG: Basketball, kayaking, skiing, biking, billiards, darts, horseshoes, and football back in the glory days.

The Basics on Bommers

Nickname: Bommers, Boms, BomBoms, Tommy Buttcheeks, T-Cheekers

Age: He’ll never tell

Area of Origin: Straight from the center of Sin City, VEGAS BABY! Or maybe it’s from out in the cornfields of PA? Whatever, he’s here now.

Prefered throwing style: Forehand Flicker and the occasional Backhand

Favorite throw: The Flick…I just like to flick it.

Favorite Driver: Feel the wrath of the Wraith!

Favorite Fairway: Feel more of the wrath of the Wraith!

Favorite Middy: SKEETER! When you hear it yelled out good things are about to happen. …or more of the wrath of the Wraith!

Tommy
Wells

"Bommers"

Boms brings the energy!  Real piece of work that guy…  You can’t go a round without hearing him bellow out a “DEUCE”, or “UGH Upper Lipper”, or “OOOOHHH NOOOOOOO!”  Which ever it is, everyone always knows where we’re at on the course when Bommers is along announcing the good times.  He’s our group’s only regular forehand flicker and has honed his trusty Wraith in for virtually any spot on the course.  Get it Bommers!

Favorite Putter: Goes back and forth on every hole. Wizard to the Judge then back to the Wraith, seriously!

Favorite course: Boms loves that short to short layout at Calvert Road Park. Just don’t ask him to play from the long tees, Ace hunting is his thing!

PDGA #: (none currently) No chance they’d give him one.

Interests outside of DG: Camping, fishing, loves fixing and building stuff (usually after breaking it), video games, masterful with the camcorder, good food, and portion control.

Sports outside of DG: Kayaking, skiing, beer pong, cornhole, foosball, most all carnival games really (especially ringing the bell with that big hammer), can we count camping and fishing again here so I feel more like an athlete?

The Basics on 44

Nickname: 44, VP Incorporated, SPB

Age: Stopped counting years and started counting coins about 5 years back.

Area of Origin: Born here, raised here, probably die here.

Prefered throwing style: Backhand with a burgeoning Forehand Flick

Favorite throw: The 44 Hyzer Bomb

Favorite Driver: TDIDI custom Captain Caveman (Champion Blizzard Wraith)

Favorite Fairway: Innova DX Gazelle

Favorite Midrange: TDIDI custom US Gold Eagle Coin (Champion Mako3)

Favorite putter: Still sorting those putter things out. Since I can’t throw one it’s usually my KC Pro Roc, Mako3, or my driver after parking it.

Shawn
Bernard

"44"

Shawn is the rookie of the group who right after he started hucking ’em with us…broke his arm at work.  He got in more than enough beforehand though to catch the fever!  All healed up, now he’s back to slinging plastic with the boys and already challenging the top of our leader board.  It may take him forever to finally huck it, but it’s hard to argue with his methods as he out drives us all.  

Favorite course: Kinder Farm Park all the way! Pretty good chance you’ll find him on one hole or another almost every day of the week.

PDGA #: 129578, thanks mom and dad!

Interests outside of DG: Stacking gold and silver coins, playing poker, metal casting, taking my pitbull to the park and community beach, blowing off the meanest backyard firework displays you’ve ever seen, and trying to get my white boy rhythm back and improve my dance moves.

Sports outside of DG: May not have been blessed with what you’d call and athletic frame. More built to sling plastic than anything else, but I love kayaking, hiking, and getting dragged all over the park by my dog that weighs more than I do…really should be a sport!

The Basics on The Burkeman

Nickname: The Burkeman, Jojo, Stretch, Pipeline, White Lightning (so he says)

Age: Newly Wed (whole life ahead of him…)

Area of Origin: A true Annapolitan, Jojo holds the home field advantage.

Prefered throwing style: Backhand and Overhand

Favorite throw: Oh, it’s Hammertime! Many years of baseball, and a trebuche for a right arm, has Jojo deadly accurate with the Hammer and Thumber.

Favorite Driver: TDIDI custom Hammertime Champion Destroyer

Favorite Fairway: X to the Z edition Star Mamba

Favorite Midrange: Usually pull out my trusty Leopard for upshots. It’s all about the second shot baby!

 

Joe
Burke

"The Burkeman"

The Burkeman is without question The Spirit of our little Huck Crew.  We all have one of those friends who’s ready to Do It at the drop of a hat, whatever “It” is…that’s The Burkeman!  His energy is infectious and almost impossible to resist.  But really who’d want to?!?  He’s also our acting Sherpa having been born and raised in these parts.  Always ready to lead us into our next adventure, Jojo brings enough Doing It to keep our whole group going at all times!

Favorite putter: Does it really even matter when you can’t make any of them find the chains? Fine, my Aviar that I aptly named Dr. Hole Seeker MD.

Favorite course: Kinder Farm Park! Jojo grew up as a wee lad hucking his way though the woods of KFDGC. With around three full decades abusing the trees here, he has elevated himself to Sherpa status on these trails.

PDGA #: (expired)

Interests outside of DG: Mostly making his new wife happy, jamming out to old vinyl, long walks with Lefty, camping, fishing, taking endless lesson from Old Man Cobbers in NBA 2K, and most importantly being a bad ass disc golf dad to the newest member of his family and our Huck Crew!

Sports outside of DG: Basketball, baseball, ball golf, kayaking, skiing, biking, foosball, cornhole, darts and really any other sport that allows you to play with a beer in one hand.

The Basics on X to the Z

Nickname: X to the Z, Xander, The Gator, Del, Chris?

Age: Wizard level (above Harry Potter but younger than Gandalf)

Area of Origin: High atop the Pocono mountains

Prefered throwing style: Forehand and Backhand

Favorite Fairway: Innova Leopard, Legacy Rival, Innova Firebird

Favorite Midrange: Axiom Theory, Innova Roc (all), DD Justice, Prodigy A1

 

Xander Zaretzit

"X to the Z"

Xander is a late addition to our crew, and the first member of the TDIDI Army to be officially indoctrinated into the TDIDI Huck Crew!  From Shakespearean level commenter on our videos, to long distance disc dyeing mentor, to ski trip bunk up, to huck buddy and friend, X is the actual embodiment of what makes the TDIDI Army so awesome.  Now, just another one of the stooges in our crew!

Favorite putter:  DD Keystone, Reptilian Disc Stego (quite possibly the MOST overstable disc in the known universe…cuz yeah, that’s how I roll.)

Favorite course: Villas Crossing, course no longer exists but at the time it was a divine design. Butter Valley DGC, Steal Club DGC, Blue Mountain DGC, and Muddy Run DGC are my runner ups.

PDGA #: (none currently)

Interests outside of DG: I’m a disc dyer as well as a cinephile (I like watching shows and movies) and a foodie.

Sports outside of DG: ski/snowboarding, biking, ice/inline skating, competitive eating (I just lose a lot).
