Title: I made an interesting discovery over the last few days
Post by: eupher61 on December 16, 2010, 10:17:35 PM
An Aerobie Arrow putter makes a decent scraper for lite ice.  Really heavy frost or freezing rain/sleet type stuff, no.   But, the downwind side of my car, which still got ice but not nearly as heavy, it worked great.  The windshield, I needed the real scraper.  I like the Arrow as a putter too, so it's an extra bonus.

Whodathunkit?

A few weeks ago I was raking up leaves in the yard and loading them in ole brownie to take to the yard waste dump site in Olathe. When I got to the dump with the second load, I realized I'd left my shovel at home. I did have a stack of putters in the truck though, so to the amusement and amazement of other dump patrons I unloaded the leaves with a putter in each hand.

This would have made a great photo!

Tom, you may have a money making opportunity here. I'll bet the people watching you thought those putters were some kind of hip, new-wave, leaf-gathering tool that you surely must've bought at Sharper Image. This was at the Olathe yard waste facility, right?

They were wondering why you wasted your time doing it that way and just torch the whole thing right where it sat.

I think this thread should continue as a place we can post other uses for our golf discs. As much as we'd like to be able to be using them for disc golf 24/7 it is simply impossible. So I know we all use them for other things because we like having them around even when we aren't throwing them and they are always nearby. Here's a couple of obvious things I use them for all the time:

I have several sitting in various locations to put things in like loose change, nuts and bolts and assorted items I need to keep together when doing projects around the house.

They are also great for giving the dog or cat a drink of water.

What are some other uses you've put your idle golf discs to when not throwing them?

Rolling tray, just getting that one out of the way. It's cool because when you're done, you can roll the tray over to the next person...

When I run out of paper plates, I just wash out one of my discs and grub out of it.

I also use my discs for protection...walking around in Midtown isn't that safe and I've always secretly wanted to chuck my Groove at someones face to see the outcome...

Last winter, during a particularly snowy round at Max Roper park in Lincoln, my friends and I found that our discs made pretty good sledding objects.  Our preferred method was sitting on one disc and another under each foot.

Furniture mover to scoot heavy objects across carpet. aka Magic Sliders. Just place a disc under each corner of the couch and it slides across the floor with ease. Useful for vacuuming behind the couch, or rearranging the furniture. Save the strength you would use lifting heavy furniture for game time

I occasionally use a disc to beat Sophie the dog with.

  GREAT IDEA!  Maybe disc companies could sell their overstock to furniture companies to give to their customers when they buy furniture.  Might be a great way to promote disc golf!
