Thanks for the compliment about the 08 Worlds. It was a lot of work, but was a really unique experience to run. Wish I could have played though. I will be playing this year in KC. Are you going to be there?
Nice to meet you, too. I agreed with you with a great network for us in discgolferR.us.
Here in the State of Washington, there is a disc golf organization called the Washington Deaf Disc Golf Association (WDDGA). The WDDGA promotes disc golf competition for the Deaf community by hosting 9 tournaments a year. You don’t have to be an athlete to play, as anyone can play the sport. In fact, there is a Masters group for people who are over 40 years old. Also there are group categories for ladies and kids to compete among themselves. The best disc golfers usually play in the Pro Category, and they usually have scores that are close to or better than the course par score of 54 strokes. The rest of disc golfers either play in the amateur or Masters category. There are many other Deaf disc golf organizations in other different states. WDDGA affiliates to www.ddga.org in United States.
It is nice to getting know you. Are you still teacher? Do you meet deaf people in Japan? Do you meet any deaf person in your country?
I have no information about blind experience for disc golf but I had one deaf person who is usher's syndrome and skilled disc golf in Austin, Texas. For your information, Seattle has a good service for deaf blind. Visit at http://www.seattledbsc.org/ .
If you are member of disc golf in Japan, which organization member are you? Can you share with me with a website? It would be interesting.
Good news! I will be in Japan for my wife's brothers wedding March 29th. We will arrive in Japan March 28th to Tokyo, and then to Osaka, and finally to my wife's home town of Nara. I really hope to be able to play Discgolf in Japan. How far from Nara are you? Possibly I could travel to where you are and play a few rounds. I will only be in Japan till April 5th. Let me know.
NIce to meet you too.
This site really is awesome. you can meet people from around the world.
Is Sakai a family that is friends with you?
was the writing on the comment Sakai in Japanese?
Hope all is well
Thanks for your message, there are still a lot of fires burning in Victoria still, with some luck they should be under control soon. I hope they are extinguished soon as well, so no more people will lose their loved ones and their homes. Thanks again.
Yes there was a terrible forest fire, it is only 15-20 minutes from where i live. at least 200 people will die from it. we had 46 degrees celcius on that day.
I am a police officer and had to work at the place of the fire today...... it was the most horrible thing i have ever seen.
