The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I would like to start a women's league in Washtenaw county, primarily in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti. I don't know the first thing about running a league but I'm determined to get one going. I love playing with my guy friends but I feel like they're on a completely different level than me...well, they are, they got 10 years on me! It would be nice to relate to another female disc golfer and to learn some strategies that are better suited for our bodies.
If you have any words of…Continue

Life is good. I've been throwing since last week Thursday. I'm 100% again but I must remember to keep stretching before and after.
In honor of our vets, Essential Discs ran a tournament called The Freedom Memorial last year on Memorial Day. There was a small showing but enough to make it worth an annual event. In addition, As a Thank You; We are cutting all Veteran entry fees by half to give back to those that have given us so much.
Last Year we held it in Carrboro, NC at Anderson Park.
This year it will be at Fort Custer Recreation Area in Augusta, MI (Battle Creek area)

So after my last post, we unexpectedly spent the weekend cleaning out a property my parents were selling. No practice. Then, two days without practice turned into four, then a week...
Maybe I should alter my resolve to be "I will practice at least once a week" - I think that is more approachable at this point in my life.
But now, to go clean up the supper dishes, bathe the 18 month old, and squeeze in a load of laundry before bedtime.

I haven't played a full round of disc since Thursday (six days ago!). I hurt. The pain starts in my lower left back and runs through my hip. I've been hobbling and wincing in pain, no joke. I'm not sure if the pain is from disc golf or from unloading freight trucks at work. Also, I'm not sure if I'm seriously hurt because I don't have health insurance or extra cash to visit a clinic. My friends told me to sit out and I did until yesterday that is. The weather was phenomenal, I had to get…Continue
Well, when everything works together, I can "drive" 150 feet (usually with a Cobra). I think I threw almost 180' with a Dragon yesterday.
Now, to be able to do that consistently...
I've decided to ignore the power grip for awhile, and just use my version of the fan grip. While trying to throw further, I feel like I've lost control of where the disc is aiming.
Too many things to remember! Rotate, keep the disc level, let my right foot pivot, start…Continue

This topic is short and sweet.
I have played Disc Golf and most of the time, it is quiet.
Yes there is talking in between throws, but besides that, it is quiet.
I created a Disc Golf Cart, and I plan on attaching a couple of small speakers, and use a MP3 player.
I know that I will more than likely only use it during Recreational play and not tournaments.
So, This blog can be used to your favorite musical artist, songs etc.
I do not know how…Continue
