The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Sheila and I went camera shopping for her - she's going to carry her own digital camera on our China trip in late February (28th) through March (24th) - at Radio Shack. Got her a Olympus FE-280, nice little thing. She's learning how to use it as I write this blog entry.

Then we met Ben at 3:30 pm at Bandemer Park for some discing before he went to work.

We played the first round (9 holes) from the Reds (short tees) and the second round from the Blues (long tees). I beat Ben, overall, by one stroke, shooting -5 on the shorts and +3 on the longs, to his -3 on the shorts and +2 on the longs.

While we played, there were three other groups on various holes. Not too bad for a cold, wintry day.

[Funny note: I had lunch with the city parks planner last week, partly to thank her for her work on getting the course put in. At one point she looked at me, strangely, and said: "Did you know, they're actually out there shoveling the snow off of the tee pads?" I laughed. Non-disc golfers *so* underestimate our passion.]

It was kind of sad to see the number of trees that the city has marked with white splotches, that are going to be removed later this winter due to the Emerald Ash Borer problem. Hole 3, in particular, which is quite difficult to get down the fairway on now, will be much more open once those trees are out.

I only beat Ben because his putting was off. Sheila did not keep score, because she was working on her backhand throw on a lot of the holes. She had some good drives.

I tried out my new holiday present, a Destroyer, and I think it's going to be a fine forehand disc for me! It's overstable enough to handle my arm speed but fast enough to get out there a bit before it starts to come back.

We plan to play Thompson Park, in East Liverpool, Ohio on either (or both) Thursday or Friday afternoons. If you're in the area, give me a call: 734 355 0431.

City's concerned about liability. Even Ben admitted, after we found 3 of them had crashed across the fairways in (clearly) the past week, that th city has a point!

Best scores I had were -6 and +4 on those courses, and a -2 on the Whites.

That sucks about the trees!! We'd assumed that those were marked as trees to KEEP when you did the initial clearing! It sucks that those are coming down!
