The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

After an amateur had his club write his name in for regional coordinator and the pros in Austin were too apathetic to vote because I was the only one on the ballot, I retired. Fought with wrong ideas back then and think now that geezers need a separate organization. Anyway I'm active again. Putting in a user friendly course in Brady and one in Brownwood to be named after me! After 6 yrs. of ball golf and a 7 handicap I am designing more fun in my courses. I never did enjoy punitive disc golf. You know, off an inch loose a disc golf. When you hit a ball in the water you don't have to throw the club in after it. I don't carry a bag of water discs. When I was teaching my wife to throw she taught me to quit keeping score, I then started throwing in aces left and right. I'll be holding senior friendly days at my course soon. I am making stroke savers because Don Wilcheck said I could. I'll be back to discuss more later. Greetings all, howl......... Larry Mann I am

Local club politics can be a pain. Larry, check out the Geezers club in here, which was maybe the first one of the 600+ we have that was started, on the first day of the network on December 18, 2007.

Top senior grandmaster pro Peter Shive has been working on a "tour" for older players, but his focus is on Pros and, although I think he's adding Ams this year, he's using some outmoded technology so this group might be a better place to gather folks and talk about next year's season.

I know that DGRUS is probably going to sponsor a Michigan Masterz tournament in August of 2009, at the moment tentatively to be held in conjunction with the annual Femillz event.

I've been emailing Peter and like his dream. But that was my dream yrs. ago and then reality set in. I went back to cycling where there were lots of older guys to compete with. Now I don't necessarily want competition. I can win at anything. Winning now is teaching and seeing results. I would hold a senior camp like cycling if you who need it would come. More fun than a barrel of monkeys. Warm in Texas in the winter. Hey, Bill Burns saw you post. Long time.
Larry,

Man, it has been a long time! Welcome back! Glad you are still around. Don't know if you heard, but we lost Biff Barfield a couple of years ago, and Eric Marx moved to Asheville, NC, and I also heard that John Houck got married! I look forward to seeing you again, if we both can recognize each other! Believe it or not, I will be a GM next year. Oh, and dude, where did the Brownwood newspaper get a picture of Frank Zappa with golf discs?

For the rest of you, I first met Larry when I moved to Dallas in 1987, and despite living out in the sticks (Brownwood), he was a mover and shaker in the Central Texas DG scene. Some of the old Austinites can tell you more about Larry. A point of clarification: The wrong ideas he fought against came about after my active involvement had ended. I can't remember any idea Larry had that I disagreed with; but, then again, I am of an age where it takes some effort just to remember any idea anybody had back then... :>s

You were the best commish. ever man. Thanks for the" hey "back. I've emailed Mike Sayre after Biff left us. Yea, Erics been gone a while. Remind me to tell you the story how eric left his old girlfriend and hooked up with his wife after a late night of talking about life on the way to another out of town tournament. And yes, Houck finally found his match. Watch the changes coming in his life. Thank you Bill for the kind words in support of my take on the "ideas" that I spoke at length on back in those days. I'm afraid to get involved with the pdga for fear I would still see some of those bad ideas. I really am serious about hosting a 50+ bash here in Brady next year. The tournament I held in Brownwood in '87 still stands out whenever I run into someone that was there. We had to bring in Baskets and even used Hosers. I'm not inclined to travel much unless I decide I must go to sgm worlds........... I'm glad I found this site. Fun getting back in touch. Let me tell you about the time I had to introduce myself to Lance during my cycling life. Well yo....................Peace, Larry Mann I am
