Greg Barsby 2018 Disc Golf World Champion! First time I spoke to Greg was at the San Francisco Safari many years ago, 2004 was the year.I was wearing a hoodie with the logo of a Swedish metal band named Bathory. Greg & I chatted about the band & got to know each other. Greg won that event! Years later I found myself storing my boat for the winter in Greg's home town, So for the next 2 years I would drive to Grass Valley ( 1 hour 45 min drive ) to drop off the boat in the fall & come back & pick it up in the spring, during these times I would contact Greg about a round of golf on his home course. We would chat about music & golf. I had not started playing guitar at that time but Greg was in a band drumming & singing! He got me thinking about being in a band too! He would tell me he was not very competative in casual rounds, well he got the job done at the highest level! Being from Southern California but having lived in Northern California a larger portion of my life I am proud of a local boy done good.
I have wrote that when I started collecting I did not have a direction. I have also wrote that Victor's book gave me stuff to shoot for. I have also noted that when I got Ralph Williamson's collection he had a bunch of Pluto Platters. This was my early direction. To fill the gaps in Ralphs Pluto collection. Along the way I found my self at Phil Kennedy's house where he showed me a 5th style ( double esker ) that we later traded for. I also found a American trends Pluto platter on e bay! Dan at DTW helped me with a 6th style & after finding a second I did a trade with Phil for a 4th style giving me all molds. Along the way I found a white WPP1 & a unknown color ( blue ) in the 4th style. Thanks John Kirkland! the blue was in the package & I traded my double esker in the package to give John all the styles. I got to know most the collectors in this area & know that there are only 3 of us that have all the Pluto Platter molds.. Then Father Lyle comes back into the fold. Father Lyle being one of the oldest disc sleuths, it was good to get to know him. Now with renewed interest Lyle wanted to be only the 4th known person to have all Pluto molds. Having found 2 more ATPP I worked a deal with Father Lyle. I think I am in good company!
