Happy New Year to you too Heather & sorry I missed you while you were in OH for the holidays. We'll get plenty of opportunities later on anyway. Definitely would love to catch up with you soon & hope everything's well up in the north.
What a brilliant idea. I sorta ask that of others when they come and play any of the tournaments I have, just imagine if 30 people came to your tournament with a disc that they didn't like or want or a shirt that didn't fit or a one legged lamp that they we're going to throw away to donate to the TD, then on top of what the TD has to give he or she would have more to give out, plus it's a better feeling to give than to recieve. I always give the tournament host a small gift for my gratitude of being able to be apart of their tournament on my behalf and the club I'm representing. I also give away about 95% of all prizes that I collect during my year of playing as I normally don't win any prizes that just drop right into my bag.
They'res a couple cool state parks close to the New London/Groton area from what I remember, maybe you could raise some awareness and money and design and set up your own personal ['private idaho'] DG course.
Check out that road I was telling you about hwy 34. it's between Danbury area and New Haven. I used it many times on my 72 hour pass when I needed to come home for a spell. I also forgot to tell you about the cool courses in Vermont [Johnson State college, one of the most picturesque places I've ever traveled to, and you might as well go to Montreal if your in Johnson as Montreal has it all except for a DG course, but if like to party or like fashion then Montreal is the place to go. And the course in Randolph, White River DG course was really sweet, but bring bug spray]. i'd also recommend going to the top of Mount Washington in New Hampshire some time. I wouldn't take my personal vehicle as I'd rather save my brakes for another day but I did go on their personal guided vans that was incredible, and if you do that sit on the right side if you can. And they'res a course on the cape that I liked a lot [West Barnstable]. I could go on and on and on. My goal is to play at least one course in every state and I've got 14 states to go and besides Alaska, Wyoming and Utah they're all in warmer weather climates.
peace always, and may your putts never kiss Mother Earth in the New Year--------------------------------- - +
Sorry about that, I hope that I did not damage anything. It was a blast, next year I will be praying for snow. We will make arrangement for the tournament next year including bring unwanted gifts as disc golf prizes.
Sorry about that, I hope everything can be dried out, no electronics. Those are awesome nick-names, I will definitely have to use them. I had a blast yesterday, a little muddy, praying for snow next time. Have a safe trip back to the east coast.
What a nice unexpected Christmas gift, to be your friend :^ D. I've always admired your style, you'll be greatly missed in our NE OHIO DG family, but not forgotten. Let me know what you think of the course at Martha's Vineyard if you get the chance to play it. I put on 2,700 miles on my rental van a couple of years ago (2004) and played 27 different courses from as far north as Gatineau, Quebec to as far east as Strathgartney Park on PEI, about 10 courses in Maine (as I recommend all their courses except the one in Bangor, but then I recommend the Muddy Water's restaurant in Bangor as that's the choice spot where Stephen King likes to eat. I also recommend visiting the Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick if you have some extra time (be carefull of the the time zones and the tidial times. I really cherrished my time spent in New England. I know you'll find some new friends as your a great fun person. If I ever get back that way I'd love to throw around or two with you.
Take care and God Bless, your friend, Dan' hyzer' Kilgore
