Pretty sure it died of natural causes when almost everyone participating packed up and headed to Emporia.

While I am sitting here at work jealous, wishing I could be there...

Maybe that was an exaggeration but I did see a guy throwing like 450-500 feet in Manhattan, KS. I was talking to him before the round and telling him I was trying to build my arm strength up and stuff and how I thought I was doing quite well and he kinda laughed. I am happy to hit 300 ft with my drives but I am more happy when I hit my lines and the disc actually does what I want it too...

I am still trying to figure this all out. I am slowly creeping up to a year playing, if you count winter time where I did not throw a disc. I usually look where I want to throw it, say a silent prayer and throw. Does it work? Heck no! I try to watch the vets throwing and I tend to ask a lot of questions, which can probably get annoying. I need to find this Church of the Flying Disc God!

Something I think helps develop your throwing is to play catch. Another thing that will improve your game fast is to take all your discs and go throw them out in an open filed such as a soccer field or baseball field. Playing rounds doesn;t give you enough reps to learn how to make the discs go where you want them to.

This. But doing the field thing takes dedication-- let's face it, that's booooring compared to playing an actual round --but perhaps that dedication makes the difference between an average player and an exceptional one.

it does take dedication. I live on 14 acres but I would be lying if I said I go out and play catch with myself. I keep telling myself I need too, but do I? Heck No...I try to play same courses, so I get repetition and I was seeing my score slowly drop last year. Then Winter hit...now I feel like I am almost back to square one.

I even bought one of those DVDs with Ken Climo and some other dude in it, when I purchased some discs online. It's given me a few pointers but I need to work on my drives. I thought I was doing awesome getting 350-400 feet on drives until I played with a guy who was almost doubling that...it was an ego crusher.

Thanks for the fun times. Wish my score could have reflected something better but it was nice to get out there and get to throwing again. I look forward to a fun league at USM this year!

One of these days you'll see my name at the top!  :P

I can try my hardest to make it out there by 5:15, it's not that long of a drive. Life has just taken over for me and took a turn for the best.

I've only played once in a month, so I need to break the rust off

I just want to know what happened to the honest part of this game? It's not your disc. I guess I was brought up different though, taught not to steal from others.

Guess it's just the Ohio-ian in me  8)

I wonder how long it is before he's posting on this site about a lost disc....Karma does suck

I can't think of 1 person honestly...

I am sure with the 1500 members we have there is someone lurking in the dark...

I did like the bag tag shaped like the number idea though...

Or people could submit custom art for say, a range of tags. maybe 10 tags you 'adopt'

I can't even draw a stick person correctly or I would submit some art...do we know anyone good with drawing or computer graphics?
