I would understand a KU fan wanting to charge a UNI fan to play disc golf in Johnson County, although I think just having to look at all those well-to-do yuppie f*cks and their storybook suburban lives ought to be payment enough. I hope every Christmas tree in Johnson County, Kansas, catches fire and burns down the house it's in this year. Now I don't actually mean any of that, but Spencer did ask for it and well, it was kinda fun to type it out.

The government doesn't approve of the term "Christmas trees." They are holiday trees. ???

Oh sh1t, glad ya pointed that out, Tom. My apologies to anyone who might have been offended or felt excluded by my mentioning of the Christian holiday in question.:D

Jamie's post reminds me of a thought I had the other day: Instead of using the TLC money to buy trees, which may succumb to drought, disease, or be eaten by deer...


























...why not just rent trees whenever we have a tournament or a birthday party? Thoughts on this? Drew? Jack?

Remember, stealing baskets is only wrong if you do it in your own town. Road trip to STL! ;D

I used to be a flyfisherman, I fished all over and all the time. Now I only flyfish in remote areas with are hard to get to. The streams I used to fish have been overran with hoards of people both respectful and  destructive. I can see waiting a long time to play  and have all ready followed players that just threw their trash on the ground with a trash can near by.


I saw the madness at Bennett Springs once. Had to been a thousand yuppies standing shoulder to shoulder in that tiny trout pool they have down there.

DG has most often been compared to skateboarding as it pertains to its rise and its mainstreaming. Now, I'm not a skateboarding expert, but it seems like the equipment is probably comparably priced to what it used to be and there are still quite a number of free skate parks on public lands. There are probably also a number pay to skate parks, but those haven't replaced the free places, just added to them.

We will NEVER get to the point of ball golf, which is what I think you are afraid of. Ball golf was adopted by the aristocracy at a very early age. The wonderful part of the aristocracy is their utter unwillingness to change. Our game won't be co-opted by them and will always be a game of the common man. Any implication otherwise is lunacy.

Yes, I may be reaching a bit. But keep in mind that a skate park takes up a fraction of the real estate and requires a fraction of the maintenance of disc golf. That said, if all it does is reach skateboarding popularity, I suppose it won't be so bad.

At any rate, I can't think of many forms of entertainment/recreation that are now more accessible and affordable to the average Joe than they were before they became mainstream. One thing that comes to mind is the sport of whitetail deer hunting. Used to be I could knock on the door of most any rural home and gain permission to hunt their land. Then all the TV shows and product-sponsorship dollars started coming in, and it did attract a lot of new hunters. Nowadays, it's "Sorry, we lease our land to hunters from out of state." You can see the $10/acre lease rates on craigslist and the insanely high prices on hunting gizmos and apparel, too. The 180-acre farm I used to hunt for free now leases for $1800 just for Oct-Dec! WTF?! :o

Warning: Only a handful of people will benefit from disc golf growing into the mainstream. Overwhelming odds are that you, the reader, are not one of those people. Be careful what you wish for. ;)

Everyone would benefit from disc golf growing into the mainstream. More people would know about it and likely play it, and we'd have more pull to get choice pieces of land to make incredible courses.

You don't have to be making money from the sport to benefit from more people knowing about it.

And, after all, shouldn't we be hoping that more people get to learn about the wondrous flight of a golf disc?

We'll see if you hold the same views when there aren't any free courses left and discs cost $40 apiece. ;D
