The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

We moved my Dad-in-Law in with us a couple months ago after my Mother-in-Law very unexpectedly passed away. We have been trying to keep his mind off of the tough stuff and get him as Happy as he can be, given the circumstances.

He got into throwing discs with me at his old place and started going to courses with me when we got him here. Today, on hole #4, at White River in Auburn, Wa, he threw one of his best drives to date.  About 285 ft on his drive, but he ended up about 90-95 ft right of the basket with one medium window  to hit through the Cedar trees. Some how, he hit the window Perfect and went dead center chains. His 1st Deuce! 90 ft upshot for a 1st Deuce???? :0

The group in front of us stopped and clapped. They had watched him throw. When I told them it was his 1st deuce, they came over from two holes away, shook his hand, and the woman in the group even gave him a big 'ol hug. The look on his face was Priceless. I think it was the 1st time in a Long time he had a moment, even a short one, of Happiness. 

He is Almost as obsessed with Disc Golf as I am, already..... Lol. It's been fun to try and help him learn, and enjoy the game. It was Even More Fun to see him be so Happy today, because of Disc Golf.
