DISContinuum has been around as long as we have as a direct result of thousands of hours volunteered by current and past officers (and a heck of a lot of our members!). Here are the current officers for 2024, a little about them, and some of what they do for the club.

If you have ideas or suggestions for the club and want to help make those suggestions a reality, please reach out to us directly at discontinuuminfo@gmail.com. We always have more room for folks who’d like to help the club move forward and better serve the local disc golf community!

Tim Steward

PDGA#: 28106
CLUB MEMBER SINCE: 2005

Technically, Tim has been playing disc golf since 4th grade when he had a 6-hole, telephone pole course that he played up and down his street with an orange Wham-O.

He found “real” disc golf in 2005 and has been addicted since day one. In the last 19 years, he’s managed to become a slightly above-average disc golfer 😂.

Tim takes care of the club’s website, and the Fairfield lost and found. He plays in the Thursday 8 am league regularly, where he showcases his 700-rated putting skills.

Tim’s 3 favorite discs:
Pure, Trespass, Fuse
