Headrick, who became known as the father of Frisbee sports,[13] later founded and appointed Dan “Stork” Roddick as head of the International Frisbee Association. Stork began establishing North American Series (NAS) tournament standards for various Frisbee sports, such as Freestyle, Guts, Double Disc Court and Over-all events. Headrick later helped to develop the sport of disc golf by inventing standardized targets called “pole holes”,[14][15] that was first played with Frisbees and later with more aerodynamic beveled rim discs. Upon his death, Headrick was cremated, and, as requested by him, his ashes were molded into memorial Frisbees and given to family and close friends[16] and sold to benefit The Ed Headrick Memorial Museum[17]
