I was able to convince my sister-in-law AMY and friend Mary to play the One Disc Challenge at North Wood County Park this past weekend. Amy had never played a hole and Mary only a couple rounds. Both would likely play in another tournament.
Gateway was very good with their sponsorship of the tournament and the gals came away with their first discs. My wife also played and had a wonderful time for her second tournament. How long before SB plays his first?

One of my goals came true this past weekend when my wife played in the tournament. Andrea threw more in the tournament in two rounds than all other throws combined (practice, etc...). She made me very proud and would be willing to consider doing some more smaller tournaments.
I gave my sister in law some discs Sunday in hopes that she will play in local one disc challenge at the end of the month with us.

I am wondering while reading posts how many would be able to pass a simple English test.

Made it up in time to catch a ride to Marshfield, WI to play in the Dairy Fling sponsored by Arby's (they provided lunch) and others. Braem park is a relatively short course that is highly technical with a little luck thrown in. I shot good enough to win my division. It was good enough to beat everybody by 3, second round was bogey free. I need to suggest to the TD next year they should have a clinic to help the newer players. I know I would be willing to help along with several other players.… Continue

Just got back from the tournament late this afternoon.
The four courses were simply great. Des Moines should be proud of them. They test accuracy and distance pretty evenly. My type of courses. It was interesting talking to some local rec players about the courses. They said they didn't know what they had until they went to a different town and now appreciate their courses much more.
Meeting new people and old friends is still one of the fun things of disc… Continue

Just finished my first Pro Masters tournament. I definitely noticed the overall playing ability of the players compared to Advanced Masters. It was nice to play with and meet new people. I finished last for my division. Not what I was hoping for but one has to take defeat well, just as winning with respect for others is also necessary. I just couldn't get anything going yesterday, today my putting finally showed up, good to have it back (it never showed up at 2007 AM Worlds). Hopefully it will… Continue

I sliced my finger today on a knife doing dishes. It took 4 stitches to sew me back together. It was my left index between the knuckle and next joint. I am glad I throw right handed :)

My wife is Andrea and she runs a fiber arts business with her sister. www.mielkesfarm.com
We were married March 31, 2007 after I met here while she was re-enacting the 1770's ish.
She taught me how to spin fiber and knit a stocking cap :)
Grant arrived Feb 7, 2008.
This year I plan on dipping my toes into the Pro-Masters.
I got my introduction to disc golf many years ago with the St. Cloud, MN gang while I lived in Brooten, Mn.
