Ledgestone TD Nate Heinold is happy to announce that Upper Park Disc Golf® has signed on as a major sponsor for all of the events the Ledgestone team is running in 2022: Ledgestone, Combined Worlds and DGLO. This announcement is the 3rd in our series of announcements titled the Twelve Days of Ledgestone. Nate had a prior relationship with the previous owner of Upper Park through his work at Discraft, and the new owner and Nate connected this year at the Green Mountain Championships. “The Ledgestone team is thrilled to be working with Upper Park for our 2022 events. One of their core values is to create legendary relationships, and that’s what we have always tried to do with our partners. We hope to do that with Upper Park,” said Heinold.
“We’re in business to make the game better for everyone and that includes sponsoring the best disc golf tournaments in the world. So we’re proud to partner with Nate Heinold and the Ledgestone team,” said Martin Bispels, co-owner and CEO of Upper Park Disc Golf®.
Since 2011 Upper Park Disc Golf has focused on disc golf bags and accessories with unique styles, innovative designs, and unmatched comfort. They use cutting edge design techniques and durable, outdoor materials. Upper Park is in business to make the game better for everyone. They do that by helping their player team grow their brands, by donating to great charities like UPlay Disc Golf, by maintaining a 98% customer satisfaction rating, and by living their core values: Play different, Create legendary relationships, Be a good human and Enjoy the ride.
Through this partnership Upper Park will be releasing a special Ledgestone color branded Upper Park Shift bag to support all three events. Upper Park will be exclusively selling these camo branded bags on their website, with a portion of the proceeds going directly to support Ledgestone’s efforts to support their three events. Ledgestone will also have a limited number of these bags for sale in person at the events. Ledgestone expects this bag to be available in the Spring of 2022. This limited edition Shift bag will also include an area for patches, which is a new feature for Upper Park bags. Special tournament patches will come with these limited Shift bags.
The 12th Annual Discraft Ledgestone Insurance Open will take place August 11th to the 14th in Central Illinois. Registration will take place exclusively at Disc Golf Scene and will open in early 2022. Registration for AM players and age protected professionals will take place here and registration for the DGPT event will take place here.
