I agree with the practice makes perfect concept, however; how do you know if you are practicing the right techniques?

Define the "right" technique...I don't think you can.

Also, I had a coach growing up that said practice makes persistent. Practice does not make perfect.

I've struggled with this subject a lot. I can throw a disc a country mile, but can't hit the broad side of a barn when it comes to putting the damn thing in the basket. I've watched countless videos of Will, feldberg, reading...but they are ALL different. I've talked to Tank about it, but his putt is tough to imitate in my opinion.

I don't know that there is a "right" way to do things when it comes down to it. Practice is what gets the job done along with confidence in your technique. 

Someday my putts will fall...someday.

Tom, I'll be making the trek from downtown KC to Olathe for league. Hoping the I-70 to 435 route will save me the hassle of attempting I-35. Ill probably be there right at 5:15.

Jordan, often its difficult to convey feelings by just using words, especially in a forum atmosphere (duh)

I call it the Mike Hyzer effect. Argue and defend points like a madman on the internet, but when ya get down to it, and you're playing a round together the 'other' guy really isn't that bad. Actually, you kinda like him, and you remember what brought you together in the first place.

Disc Golf!

I realize this, and most people that post on the forum know one another and their personalities.  Just trying to save face a little on the image we portray as a club on the forum.  Who know's who's actually reading all this and deciding whether or not they want to be a part of the club?!  That's what we're about right?  Growing the sport, and growing out KCDG community?

Pointless gripe I guess.  I'm sure I'm getting laughed at with these posts; just a little food for thought.

I probably should've started a new thread because I wasn't speaking to this thread in particular.  I just saw the comments back and forth.  Both sides have valid points here, I completely understand that. 

In general, comments on here just seem so negative all the time.  People are so quick to throw things back in one another's faces that nothing gets done and when it does, somebody is hacked off one way or the other.  Granted, not everyone is going to be a "happy camper" with everything that goes on as it relates to the club.  The cohesiveness has just seemed to dissipate in the two years that I've been a member and have read posts on this forum. 

1.  A new disc shop came to town, now another is in Independence.  I understand loyalties.  Be loyal to whichever store you want to be loyal to, fine.  Fact of the matter is, we have more disc selection to choose from!  Score!
2.  Jack is providing a new PDGA league that is new to everyone, including himself.  Great!  Thanks for that, Jack!  It's a learning process for him, but let's face it he was getting drilled on the forum early this week for lack of clarity.
3.  Tracy decides to have a qualifier event on a Missouri course.  HEAVEN FORBID IT!!! It is the best course in KC guys...just sayin'.

Just a few examples that come to mind and there's opinions to both sides.  I welcome opinions, just wish we could learn to leave the negativity at the door.

So much bitterness on this forum lately. There used to be the MO/KS jabs and that was all in good fun.  Just seems like people pick fights just to instigate. What happened to the KCFDC that works together and provided constructive criticism?  Maybe I'm reading into things, but it seems pretty consistent now and it's not encouraging for all those KC disc players who never post on the forum, but do read the posts and may very well be turned off by the immature comments and jabs amongst what is supposedly the "best club the the country" with the "beat courses in the country." I would say the latter is true, but there's way too much bull**** and not enough cohesiveness around here IMO.

Just my two cents...and let the discussion begin...

It's like that Wizard just found its way to you Bowen.  It's fate.

I think you're right Palmer, I told you it was going right in my bag!

I love to watch it fly!  ;D

And it was hard to care about my score after hole 5 Jordan!  :P 8)

My humor is not well taken. Clearly the round doesn't matter at that point! Just giving Jake a hard time cuz I can y'all...

An ace and he still didn't get the W? Occasionally the blind squirrel finds the hickory nut I suppose.  ;)

General Banter / Re: Why did you join the KCFDC?
« on: April 02, 2013, 08:38:53 AM »
When I started playing in 2010, the discount we received at Disc Golf World made joining an easier decision.  Now, I re-up every year for bag tags, to support the Wide Open, and for the opportunity to compete for a spot on the EAST SIDE challenge team!

I joined to get thumber lessons from Vinnie.

With a teebird that is...

Is anyone interested in plastic? I can bring some out.

Didn't have much time to browse at swope the other day. Do you have any semi-beat firebirds? In need of a good thumber disc...
