has anyone noticed how it's getting darker lighter? huh?
so that some of the midweek minis or doubles suspend leagues till the time changed again in the spring, but not us, we tee off anyway, and play at least half the round in the dark
a good flashlight, plenty of disc lites, some good duct tape, a couple cold beers and you're all set

I have used the flashflight before. It makes it so the disc is no longer usable for tournaments but as long as you don't mind that it's really great. Even though I know it changes the characteristics of the disc... I put it on a champion cobra for a one disc round and it didn't fly significantly different. If you look at my last comment the only thing negative about it is actually too bright!

Has anyone used the Flashflight hole in one?

I've been playing with the rod'n bob lights myself. ordered enough to get a wholesale price of under $3 each. they can easily last 3-4 nights. I have also tried the Nite Ize hole in one light but you have to put a hole in the disc and they are a little too bright.

oops, I meant finish WITHOUT a group walking around in the dark looking for plastic

Hey guys, I've been running a night golf draw doubles mini for years, the six or seven anyway. I buy excess lights and tape to make sure everyone can finish with a group walking around in the dark looking for someone's plastic. The ones we use are visible for six or seven hundred feet although we only use the red colored lights, you can get them in yellow and green as well.

Here is the product info; they are sold under two different labels but are the same with a run time of about twenty hours if you turn them on and off in between throws while using multiple discs. I also recommend the duct tape, torn into small strips. If you buy the two inch wide tape, it makes it easy to tear into a 1"x2" strip.
The lights are sold under Little Lindy Joe or Thill Nite Brite Lite and can be found at most sporting goods stores like Cabelas, Bass Pro Shops, Academy as well as Walmart in the fishing section as their original use was for lighted bobbers.

Here's what to look for:

or

You want the replacement battery for 3.89 or 3.79, you can also find them on Ebay but they'll cost you markup.

Hope this helps, when I first started playing at night, we used a camera flash and glow discs, what a pain in the backside by comparison.

4" x 6" 3M 822 Tape Pads are the best thing I have used for attaching lights to discs. I trim them so they are 4" x 4"
