The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Yesterday, at Heistand Park in Madison, WI, I got my first ace on Hole 14, the beautiful downhiller that overlooks the city. From the am tees (about 250 ft), it was a bit into the wind so I threw a 171 g Star Sidewinder with a bit of hyzer so that it helixed perfectly and slammed the chainz and stayed in the basket! Unbelievable! Had two friends in my group and two people were walking up to the pad, so I had 4 witnesses.
Now for my question: What is the proper etiquette after an ace? Do you write your name and date on the sign or the basket or just your disc, and do you have to do it right after the ace occurs? Also, is it cocky to carry a permanent marker with you, almost expecting an ace?
My first Ace Dance looked more like this lol It happened on League night so I took my ace pool $$ and got a burning basket tattooed on my neck with the #13 in it (#13 at Mohawk Park in Brantford, Ontario, Canada). IMO the best way to immortalize your first 1 on the score card. And a sharpie is always a must, watching someone get an ace is almost as good as getting one yourself. NEVER VANDALIZE!
