So beyond this banter, today was phenomenal at Water Works. Everyone of you should stand up straighter knowing how well this town represents. Lots of compliments today folks. Lots. Thanks to the volunteers who came out at all the courses. See you all tomorrow up north. The Wide Open has some great energy rocking. Let's keep it going! Final 9 Sunday afternoon.

^^^^ Depends on your division. Int&Rec no. Am1 yes. Open no.

So what's the source here? 

My experience has shown me this guy is an ego maniac with a radio show based on general ignorance and strong opinions with the occasional capitulation to appear to be more likeable.

This stereotype is not about our sport. It is about a wide spread social stereotype among working and middle class folks in the US and the idea of Frisbee. This is why I always correct anyone who says Frisbee. It is a disc. It goes fast. You don't want to play catch with it, and it does things a Frisbee cannot. The people who play professionally are athletes! That usually gets the other person to start asking questions. Educate some folks!

So the KCFDC community is, as always, incredible! Thanks to Mark No Sleep Mills, Beast Kujo (kickin ass in general), Nova Pick Up some mulch, Nick Chainsaw Wink, Dan Mulch Rake Howard, and VP Nate Zier. Plus me that is 21 hours of great work at WW. Everyone showed up to get something done. Followed it up with lunch,drinks, and a few holes of WW.

There's still a bit more to do but most of it is done.

Thank you!

Calling all volunteers! Water Works needs your help!

I am focusing on Sunday next weekend (the 14th) for the big push from 10-1. Having said that if anyone has time during the week, I am free. I am really looking for a pickup to load up with mulch from the lower parking lot and get it out where needed.

Other work will be cleaning up the broken areas of the the walls and painting the OB lines, doing what erosion control we can with downed limbs, improving the "stair" from 5 to 6 (the rain took its toll), and any other areas that you see fit to clean up/improve. As always we will pull trash too!

I will paint the 10 meter circles the week of the event (hopefully right after a dry spell and a fresh mow).

Thanks in advance!

My best advice is this:

  • There is no "Right" way to throw or "Right" disc to throw.  There is only the way/disc that works for you.  So take all advice with a gain of salt (mine included).
  • I never stop learning about how to do it better.  Personally I don't believe in "getting it" only getting better.
  • Most Important: Don't make radical changes!  Just tweak what you are comfortable with now.  Got a little heavier, Go a bit longer, Go a touch more overstable.

On the final point, if you are throwing 150's, take the same discs and step up to 160's.  Or If you are throwing a blizzard Leopard, try a blizzard TeeBird or a Blizzard Valkyrie or even a Blizzard Beast.  Or just step up to a 160 -165g Leopard.  In the end I think you are on the right path.

And don't listen to Bossy people. Haha

Great advice here. I can add to this that yes Beasts, Valks, Leopards are great. I throw a Valk or Beast 80% of the time and I have played for more than ten years. Being tall you probably have more arm speed than spin(wrist). My wife and I are tall like you and that's what works for us. Also, if you are a natural athlete, just go with what feels good. I threw an air bounce for years as it felt good. You will develop other styles if you stick with it.
