The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Worlds are a half a year away. I plan to be there. I can close my eyes and see the basket in a Michigan forest. I can feel the sweat dripping from my brow but I have enough concentration to focus on my shot and not on the droplets of sweat...That will be in a couple of seasons. Now its winter. My wife and I drove 300 miles to northern Michigan to go cross country skiing this past week. From the time we crossed the state line I could see nothing other than baskets behind every tree on the roadside. When we got to Crystal Mountain it was raining and I could see myself teeing off in a rainstorm. A foot of snow came down by the first morning and I put Worlds aside and saw endless paths for my skis. I cannot tell you how restorative the mid week getaway and skiway was. The bags under my eyes are mostly gone and I am ready to get back to work. We stayed an extra night and enjoyed the northern Michigan beauty.
I missed the Abonimable Snowman tournament in Lombard because of the extra day up north.. I saw the results and it looked like the scores were pretty good given that they got as much snow as I had up in Michigan. I was especially impressed with the scores because I had been to the course in Lombard the weekend before we left for Michigan. The snow was deep and I took lots of shots. I assume that the TD got the pads cleaned off much better than they were when I played. There was no footing. I shot much better when I simply abaondoned the run up and simply stood and delivered. I have just one question about the Abonimable. Spike Walker won Masters. Nice shooting Spike. I want to know if he wore shorts. Spke tells me he has never worn anything except shorts in a disc golf tournament. He wore shorts to the Ice Bowl but there was much better weather than they had at the Abonimable. Hmmm.
Today was our club meeting. We also had leagues and tags were handed out. There is still about a foot of snow on the ground. I blew off the meeting and league and went out to ski on a local golf course. There are still six months before Worlds. Plenty of time to get ready. In August I will have the disc rhythm down. Right now I have the ski thing going.
