Alas I am not playing the Majestic this year. I live on the other side of WI and last year was the result of 3 years of wanting to play the MN Maj. My wife and I both have parents in Farmington MN (30-40 min from the courses) so it's likely that you might see me there again some day. Right now we have 3 very young children though (3 yr, 2 yr, and 4 mo) so it's hard to break away for anything and so disc golf's a little on the back burner. I'd love to play more, but I'd hate to miss any time with my kids at this age. It'll be great when they can play with me!
I'll maybe try to time a trip to visit grandmas and grandpas next year at majestic time, but I think I'd rather spectate than play...maybe caddie for one of the greats if they'd let me. I don't often get a chance to watch the best of the best in Fond du Lac, WI. Speaking of, I didn't realize you were one of those when I was talking to you and then you walked away saying your name was Jumping Joe and then the light bulb came on. You actually asked ME for my opinion on how to play the course. I was impressed by your humility. It's rare that a golfer asks another such a thing, most of us seem to love talking about ourselves and our rounds. So thanks for listening, it kinda made my weekend after I had preformed badly. :-)
Hi, Joe, always nice to see an old-timer connecting here!
Welcome to "DGRUS" - which is what we use as shorthand for www.DiscGolfersR.us. This network is operated by my wife, Sheila Calhoun, and myself. Please don't hesitate to ever provide feedback, and especially let us know of operational problems or of people violating our guidelines, the most important of which is, "Behave as though everyone in here is your friend!"
Among other reasons, we created DGRUS to provide disc golfers with a place on the Web where "On the Internet" does NOT mean "In your face." Please check out the full set of guidelines if you have any questions about that: http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-guidelines.
The network's value is increased with each new member, especially when they share. So please use the "Invite" feature - http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-invites - to urge your disc golf buddies to also join.
We'd like everyone who visits - more than 30,000 people a month - to join, but nearly everything is viewable even to those just browsing through. There are various ways for you to control who can or cannot see things that you post, and there are also various ways for you to control the email messages you get (or don't) telling you about things happening in the network. Please do share photos and videos, and join in forum discussions. There are nearly 700 clubs in here and you can start your own public or private one. We love it when members share posts in their blogs. As well, you can use the DGRUS Remarkd Flymart to either sell or buy disc golf stuff.
Never hesitate to contact us. You can use the internal messaging system, the "Report an Issue" button at the bottom of each page, or email us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. If you feel the need, you can even call me at (734) 355-0431.
Finally, please support our supporters, whose advertising you can see on every page. We started this totally as a fun project, but it grew so fast that we could not maintain it without their support.
Thanks for joining us. We truly hope you that this network magnifies the fun you get from disc golf.
