The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I go on a few different disc golf forums. I will say that this one has always been my favorite because it was the 1st I joined and became a part of last year, when I started playing. Regardless of which forum I have been on lately, it seems as though tensions are running high and people are really running topics of interest into a heated name calling session, more than anything.
I will be the 1st to say, I have been involved in it myself. I am VERY passionate about this game and I run my mouth sometimes before I think (especially after I sit down at the Computer after a few beers). But, I am also the 1st to admit, I don't know everything. I should probably keep my trap shut sometimes, but I love the interaction with other disc golfers and just discussing the game in general.
This got me thinking. What makes us enjoy/like/love Disc Golf? The more I think about it, I start to think that the reason people may get so Flamed over a forum topic is because, as a Whole, Disc Golfers are Damned Passionate about the game. MOST people I have had the pleasure of meeting through this sport are VERY Loyal to it and spend as Much time as they can involved in it, in one way or another. I almost begin to think that Disc Golfers may have a little extra something that makes them so Passionate about the game. Something I have rarely seen in the Many other sports I have played.
So, I am just wondering, what is it about Disc Golf that has made you stick with the sport? What about it drives you to play rain or shine, snowstorm or typhoon, etc??
P.S. I am not trying to turn this into a Let's all hold Hands and sing type of thing. I am fully aware that Everyone has their own opinion and is FULLY entitled to it. I would just like to hear some reasons why we all LOVE this Sport so much~ ;)
That's Awesome Eric. I am really inspired by the people that take away their own play time to help promote and improve this game. Kudos to ALL that do this. :)
I am REALLY looking forward to the time when my Wife's work schedule slows down enough that I can go out and hit the work parties, leagues, help with tourney set ups, etc. I haven't had anything that I have wanted to be so involved in in years. It feels good.
