I just turned 41 on October 3rd, not long after I actually bought my first discs and got started. I remember seeing fellow students play without baskets but with objects on Campus when I attended St Mary's College of Maryland from 1989- through 1993. At the time I found plenty of other things to do, and it didn't really catch my interest. Now I have a new passion. I have some catching up to do, but I still have plenty of youth and strength left.

39 and aging gracefully. Picked up this wonderful sport 5 years ago and have gotten better with age. Looking forward to the masters division on the first of the year. I play with some of the top "over 40" players in the world and it just shows you it's not about the power it's about the smooooth. Not to mention they'll be out working on one of our new course being built here in Charlotte for 3 or 4 hour then go tear up 18 holes... The dedication of the old schoolers in the sport has made it what has become today. Love this sport..

i do play with young and old alike, actually the older friends i throw with are better and more competitive than the younger guys i've thrown with lately.

I seem to be the oddball here. I'm 38 and I don't seem to show the effects of aging at all. I'll go out there and throw five rounds in an afternoon and the only problem will be that the bottoms of my feet are a bit sore. I do wish I'd found the game before I was 33 tho :P
