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.

Only 1 Maurice thank goodness.

If you close your eyes while he's talking, you can almost picture The Dude. And everyone knows Maurice abides. ;D

Sure'd be nice if the CC courses were all centrally-located. I've already made my one trip to JoCo for the year. :(

Sorry Mike, I called you the day I was putting together the schedule and you didn't answer so I did it on my own. Next year I'll make sure your input is heard. Then I'll do whatever I want again. :)

I checked and there's no record of any missed calls from you, so you're a liar.

Hmm... Nah, I think I'll just wait for the illegal download version. Seriously, though, Dave has every right to tale that stance, I'm just doubting that Slim's video would have affected sales of Dave's video.

I believe Dave Feldberg asked if he was filming and told him to stop because the stuff he was showing us was going to be on his new video.


Yes, because some disc golfer's crappy cell phone video is going to steal all the thunder from Dave's professionally-produced video. Riiiight...

I believe that we are now on year 3 of the laptop, bought in 12/09 I believe.. no major repairs have been needed, and it hasn't had to be taken in to have the blades sharpened, or the air filter replaced yet...

Dec 2010

Still plenty of time left! Muahahahahaha...

hope the laptop ain't a PC, lest we break the bank on anti-virus subscriptions and repair bills. I'll bet the damned thing is either lost or broken in 3 years.

I am on year 8 of the generator, bought in 11/04 I believe... No major repairs, aside from replacing wheels and a screw on one of the electric receptacles that some disc golfer knocked out...

Someone should get some video coverage for us on that work late on tuesdays and wednesdays

*LIKE

The club bought a laptop...why not an HD video camera ( as little as $60 these days) for coverage of ALL events...including board meetings....and *gasp* possibly live streaming one day!!

Are you F'n S'n me?! We could've rented a goddam laptop, same goes for the camera. I sure as hell hope the laptop ain't a PC, lest we break the bank on anti-virus subscriptions and repair bills. I'll bet the damned thing is either lost or broken in 3 years.

Okay, it shows 972 and 929 for me. With this being my only PDGA event, would my player rating just be an average of the two? 950.5?
