"rule 801.01 A seems impossible to enforce... using the word "should" implies that it is not a requirement... and it says nothing about following the flight of the disc, just "watch the other members throw""

"Thad, Before we go to what you are saying, I believe that players should do what the Rules of Play call them to do. Example: you call a foot fault on a tee shot, and get no second because the other players were not watching. But to your point, I…"

"Although I personally agree that is not very 'courteous' to observe the other throws, having it a requirement is completely absurd."

Why is it not a courtesy violation for not having a clue where someone in your groups disc went because you were too busy jawing it up to watch their throw.I was the only one of 4 to have a eye on a disc yesterday after i asked for a spot and was told we dont need one by the group then noone fucking watches the throw.Today I am gonna be a asshole and insist on spotters and as soon as i hear a disc is missing the clock starts .i am to generous about giving people time to look .I got screwed…See More

How to get a tourney frame of mind

I find my self not playing well in tourneys,everyone that plays with me scratch their heads when they see me play in tourneys. I give my opponents 3 or 4 strokes on me so then i step in to my tourney quicksand (thats where you try harder and all you do is sink deeper)any advice on tourney prep (mental or physical )that has helped anyone here .it's frustrating to beat people during leagues or pickup games. then have my ass handed to me in tourneys if i could figure it out i could be a real… Continue

FINDING DISCS IN THE SNOW (NEW METHOD)

Well I mentioned in chat how i find discs in the snow here in Alaska.The first is simple, spotters and finding cut marks.i like to play golf with my dog stella and noticed that as we walked down the fairway she would walk by the discs buried in the snow ,some times right over the cut mark .I decided to use that great dog nose and the love of bacon to my benefit ,so now we carry a small baggy of bacon grease(solidified of course) and rub a small smear on the bottom center mold mark .then as you… Continue

Thanks for the add! Hows the weather in alaska? I lived in Houghton,MI for a year (almost the northern most point in MI) and id have to say...300+ inches of snow and constant below 0 wind chills can get pretty chilly! Got enough courses around there?

Call Lorentzen, he has a job offer for you. Greg called me and said nobody has seen you in awhile. He called me to let you know about the job.

I'd love to see how your dyes turn out. I'm a big fan of seeing original artwork dyed. If you have any questions, I'll answer as best I can. I'm not one of those who keep my technique a secret. yes, i have vinyl cutter. no, I don't do clip-art.
