The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Packed and on the road a few minutes before my scheduled 10am Saturday departure for a couple rounds in North Georgia- trying to practice for a tourny in Blairsville, GA coming up in 2 weeks. Meek's Madness and I figured since they named it after me I should go (j/k, total coincidence). Breakfast was 2 cups of organic Colombian coffee and unfrosted strawberry Pop Tarts, followed by a cigar.

I stopped for a couple of warm-up holes on the way in Toccoa GA, it was pretty damp and windy but I thought it'd be good practice for a couple rounds later in even more mountainous conditions. It turned out well though since besides the lack of sun, conditions were pretty good on the other side of the Appalachian Trail- pic below for all you Westerners/foriegners who may never see it:

So I found the place after slight Google maps drama (I'm taking a different way back) and was impressed by the newness of the facility. Shiny new baskets and pea-gravel around the baskets, I think it works better than the wood chips you see most of the time in SC and I think would be longer-lasting. It took a few holes to get used to the shifting gravel tee-pads, I guess I've been spoiled by concrete but it made me 'lighter' on my feet and I think ended up improving my round and my endurance. I will usually run out of power over multiple-round days because of a bad hammy but even a day later I'm fine. The first time around was capped by a 80-90 foot par save from a lousy tee-shot that got hung up in the wind but I rode a great cross wind right into the basket. Here's a photo-synopsis of the first 13 holes:

Hole 14, however, was one of those moments that keep people like me coming back- gotta keep chasing that dragon, right? The last couple holes were back and across on a hillside and for some reason I got it in my head on the last hole to reach back UNDER my left arm and had pulled a beauty straight down a tight fairway. Total fluke, right? I thought so too but sure 'nuff I had to try it on the next tee and POW!! Right into the side of the basket- 3 vertical inches from my first ace:
