2014 Dan Mangone

Dan Mangone

Dan Mangone is owner of Discovering the World, the company that produces the fire orange Professional Model Frisbee disc used in Guts Frisbee, the world’s oldest disc sprort.  With ownership of Wham-O changing hands numerous times over the years, the “double 15” Pro Model mold could easily have been lost, taking the sport of Guts Frisbee with it, but Mangone has safeguarded and maintained the crucial mold.  Whether you are playing Guts in Asia, North America, South America, or Europe, the disc you are using was produced by Discovering the World.  The Bradshaw Award is a fitting tribute to the man who helped save the Professional Model and our beloved game.
