I think i need another person with me or maybe a tripod so we dont have to exchange the camera and thus make a shaky image. another person would be better for zoom and such. i think we need to learn the camera better because it was $400 and theres lots of functions we dont know how to use yet. THANKS for the comment! Good luck discing :)
yeah and mostly back home too it will sit by my spare tire untouched. but in fl half the water hazards are crystalline.
it also doesn't work if there's too much seaweed- it can't get under the lip of the disc, or if the disc is right side up on a flat seabed.
but it's already saved 4 discs i otherwise would have left, and half a dozen to keep my feet dry, and one off the top of a fire ant mound, crawling with hundreds of ants, I picked it up w/ it and walked it over to the lake and drowned the ants before touching the disc.
Sign sign everywhere a sign (an old protest song). I feel for you in purchasing directional signs for every disc golf course in the world. Two individuals and myself played at Rolling Hills County Park (Ypsilanti, Mi.) a well marked course. But there were empty posts where d'golfers had taken the signs. In retrospect..you are going to need alot more cash flow dude.
You're tellin me. Recently a course had arrows on the poles, but they can be spun around. So not only do they not point in the right direction, you think they do until you realize they can spin, and you get misled.
I've seen one course that had the Par painstakingly stenciled on the tee, but not a graphic of the hole or the length! not to mention the next tee location. who cares about par? I want to find the hole, and know what hole it is, and how long it is, so I CAN get a par!
Besides the inexperience and lack of funds and butting heads with the parks people, I think all too often a designed strives to make a course too hard, instead of making good holes or well thought out fairways. They try to pack in more than can fit in a park, ending up with an overall bad course instead of a maybe shorter or easier, but good course.
I saw your reply to comment on Ben's blog and thought I would post a few pics here of the Island hole I was reffering to at Pawhuska, OK (at the Lodge, hole 17)...enjoy...feel free to delete...
The first three pics give you a good overall view of the island showing the blue tee, white tee and berm that was built behind the basket to aid in keeping discs on the green. The blue tee in the first pic is just to the right of the person in the white shirt. The white tee is about half way down the hill under the trees. The red tee is about 20 feet off the waters edge straight down the hill from the person who is sitting down in the first pic. The last two pics give you a scale on how large the island is...but I will tell you it looks like a postage stamp from the blue tee!
Looks like you got a pretty good line of discs, I would never throw a Champion aviar though, my son likes them, but they are just too slippery for me, I love Champion Drivers over any other drivers tho. How you like the Inferno? I got grief over that one in my bag, but I could work it! until I lost it in the woods! Anyway, I did comment on your putter question, so hope you've found one by now...: )
