Missed a few months here in the Blog. I really never fill it with much content but I like to try & do a monthly post. Just wanted to say that I am really enjoying myself, My game as stated before is not what it use to be but when I do focus on the game I seem to have mostly very rewarding experiances! I keep meeting new people and travel to new places & even play well on occasion! The sport has a lot to offer! Get on out & Play! !
I have many activities that during my life were a saving grace. Early on skateboarding was my thing, later in life it has been my music. But for the longest time it has been disc sports. I was not a big competitor in DDC, MTA or freestyle but I did practice these & other disc sports. The biggest thing is making connections with so many people, it could be playing disc golf or helping someone find a disc they were looking to replace. So many collector friends have for the most part been helpful. So many road trips to play disc, collect discs & share the disc experience have made it a constant in my life & continues to this day! Not really sure it saved my life but it did give me a place to hang my hat & a group to fly my freak flag with!
I can not believe the growth of Disc Golf! So many new players & products. Our local event Vintage Cup had its biggest numbers ever. I just could not be more happy for the Frisbee family. I am glad I have stopped buying all the latest plastic. I have been watching a lot of in the bag interviews & there are so many new disc companies I have never heard of! Well up & out to the course to have some fun, as always you head to the course & there are infinite possibilities!
I would dream of tournament play, local pin location at Skyline Park, plastic I did not have. The thoughts I woke up to this morning is how to get a better room sound, what mic works best for what job, learning to solo on my guitar better. I am blessed to have my music & plastic at the same place to play with on the daily! Its go time, get it done & enjoy yourself.
I got these about a month ago, the last discs I have paid for! ( I have done some trading ) I got these thinking like I always do that some day they will be support collectable, I have come to learn that only happens with a handful of discs. Retirement is getting close & as I meet people trying to sell off collections I understand I have a big job ahead of me! It took a few decades to get here so I got work to do but not at a fast pace just for fun! Let me know if you would like anything for your collection!
Traveling through Texas I got a chance at a ODOC ROC, I like all ROC's & had a chance once before to add one of these beauties to my collection. I ended up with several other discs & was over stuffed in my suit case so I had to ship. Short on time on a Sunday I stopped at a Fed EX & had them not only ship but pack as well. They only use bubble wrap, as a result I believe that was the cause of the breakage! The disc was CE plastic & as I have found out the plastic can get brittle. I think if I had packed it with not only bubble wrap but packing peanuts it would have survived. Peanuts in-between the discs as well as around the bubble wrapped disc would have made the difference! The peanuts filling the shipping box is also key so as it can not get crushed! Next time I will just carry it!
I always liked to hear people on the course at Skyline complain about different things, mostly rollaways! This is high season for that now, Yesterday I was that guy! Not much was going where I was aiming. I was in good company so its all good. I signed up for the Japan Open, I best get to putting practice!
