Bob L. gave me a call just after I got off of my rowing machine to see if I wanted to meet him at Lakewood for a round. With the sun shining and the temp in the mid forties it was too hard to resist. I justified going by combining golf with a run to costco for gas and family provisions. Chuck E. was there too for about nine holes before he had to head off to work. It was a beautiful day to be out. Warm enough to play in just a sweater but frost on the ground in the shaded spots. It's been cold… Continue

I showed up at Lakewood on Sunday morning to run the acepot. With the chilly weather and two big football games on TV I didn't know if anyone would show up or not. As it happened there were eight of us that showed up ready to play so we decided to play 27 holes of doubles instead of the customary two rounds of 18. We each put in $10 and played in one large group. We followed the same format as the 27 hole layout that I put together last summer for the Solstice Acepotapalooza! In the end Gordy… Continue

I had a bit of business to do down toward the south end today so I decided to swing by SeaTac for a speed round. Started on the back nine and enjoyed playing the course in its winter condition. By that I mean without a lot of foliage. It makes a big difference on the way you see your shot follow a line and how far/close the baskets seem to be from the tee. I was throwing with decent power today but boy was it hard to keep the disc on the right line, my release point was giving me fits. All the… Continue

Made it out to Lakewood for a bit of casual golf on a Friday afternoon. It was a bit chilly but there were a lot of cars in the lot when I got there around 3:30. I played on my own for about 5 holes then caught up with DRC, Getty, Bunny and Steve so I joined them for the remainder of the round. Still feeling pretty rusty from not playing but really happy to be out throwing with friends. Hung out in the parking lot yakking about politics until Sue drove up to kick everyone out.

I got out to North Park on Jan. 1 for a little casual golf. Saw a gaggle of the regulars there of course and played a round of random doubles on the front nine for two bucks a head. I got partnered with a guy named Miki that I hadn't met before. Played a typical North Park round and ended up with a rather dismal one or two under. Winners were at five I think. Fun time though and always great to be out on New Years Day throwing a disc.

Played the Freeze in the Trees up at the Lake Stevens course on December 29th. Enjoyed sharing the drive up with Ken Smith. Hadn't thrown a disc in about a month so it was great to be out tossing again. I love playing in the big trees at this course. I ended up winning a ten dollar CTP and then finished tied for last cash. Would have been happy to split the twenty but the other guy got cujoled by the crowd at tourney central into playing off for it and I ended up winning the playoff. Nice to… Continue
