It's just a disc, right?

I guess if I wanted my disc back badly enough, I'd make sure to get it out of that lake before someone else did. When a disc is lost, you can hope it's returned to you, but you should not expect it. Like Slim Neal says, don't marry your discs, for they will leave you!

Just FYI, the grass is quite long at Blue Valley, so anyone considering playing that course should bear that in mind. It swallows discs whole! ;D

Good idea, because unlike a titless bag tag, that $5 will actually be useful.

Thank you for all the great ideas. I don't think I will be doing strippers this year... ... ... uhmmm.. What?

Anyway, I believe the design is set and I will be ordering them today. Once I have them in stock I will post pictures. This will be a different tag than we have had in the past and I hope people like them.

Sounds like my Bag Tag Boycott™ is going to continue for another year. Tits or GTFO, dude! ;D

Tom's had the only decent suggestion so far. How about forming the numbers using the strippers themselves, and just take a picture for the tag? Ya know, it's like they'd be doing the YMCA dance, only they form numbers instead of letters.

Kaizer, you can pick up Vernor's Ginger Ale at HyVee.

Yep, my wife has recently brought home some 12 packs for me. Used to be the only place that had it here was Hen House, for $4 per 6-pack. Just so you know, Vernors is a soda based on a ginger flavor, but it has a more pleasant, sweeter taste than regular ginger ale. Anyway, great job on the thread jack, let's keep it going.

if u can find a dgwn magazine  number 76 from 2006 there is a story about father dave tayloe that says "dave had these big gnarley mutant looking toes, and it was amazing to watch him pick up a frisbie with them and fling it through the air. He later worked his official distance up to 137 feet ten inches. He tried to get it listed into the guinness book of records ,but the documentation came back with a nice note saying they had to draw the line somewhere , and that somewhere was right above Daves foot toss".......bummer .   unfortunately dave passed away august 1st 2005 from cardio-pulminary disease...he sounded like a cool dude.

With some of the records GB lists, I'm surprised a record foot-toss with a frisbee isn't considered legitimate.

Cooper and I are heading down to Austin together and will be staying with Senor Hemmi. We need to figure out a way to take him some QT tea.

Funny, the things you miss when you move away from home. My favorite pop from Detroit is Vernors and comes in cans, much easier than having to transport a fountain drink. Empty gallon jug, maybe?

I can't speak for the Nuke, but first run's are just that, the first edition printing of a disc, although at times the modification can be different from mold to mold, first run is generally considered to be more valuable, because they haven't been tweaked yet.

Valkyries are a prime examples of molds, 1st-5th mold all do different things from the CE line, so much so that you can see the differences when people sell them, and what they are used for.

I prefer the 1st run APX over the current model (titanic by DGA for those that don't think that it is still made) just as I prefer the QMS by millennium over the SMS or the Aurora MS prior to the Q plastic.  So you can find some runs that are better than others, and it becomes a personal choice (I really DISLIKE the swirl APX for example).

Discraft is in my mind much better at quality control, so that the tweaking is less noticeable than with Innova.  I think that Jay Rivard summed it best once to me, Innova is like Red Wine, you may have a few batches that go to vinegar, but you also end up with some fine wine (good discs), and Discraft is like White Wine, you know it works, it's typically consistent, and you don't see very many surprises.

See, if you get any more interesting than that, you'll be appearing in Dos Equis commercials.

Was there a playoff between Jake and Arturo or did they just chop it up?

It's pretty much just a way to sound cool and knowledgeable on the disc golf course. For example, if you want to impress a noobie, you could say "The new Buzzzes just don't hold a line like the first-run Buzzzes did." At the very least, the noobie should come away believing that you are slightly more interesting than you were before you used the phrase.
