Meet Matt MacDonald
Matt MacDonald (PDGA #15540) is the sole proprietor of Snap Discs. Matt had a passion for playing sports from first exposure, but his immersion into frisbee around ‘93 was the beginning of a continuous ascent. The elemental nature of disc flight and boundless opportunities for human interaction are like nothing else. Matt’s roots are in freestyle, thanks to an early discovery of Frisbee by the Masters (Tips, 1977), that quickly branched into all aspects of competitive frisbee including field events and Guts, and eventually Ultimate during university. Today Matt is primarily a disc golfer, but still considers himself an “overaller” and is working toward a local Double Disc Court (DDC) league.
