Shawnee Mission / Re: Fire at SMP

It started by somebody shooting off a rocket.  We saw them shoot off the rocket then a few minutes later we saw the fire about where it had landed.

Is that why you sweep the leg of anyone who tries to launch a rocket at WYCO?

General Banter / The future of disc golf

The future is here.

I saw this the other day. I'm curious of how the game play is. It's funny they call themselves the first disc golf board game. The first was actually made 30 something years ago. Rick, I believe , still has one in the store somewhere. It wasn't pretty but it was truly the first.

Just a suggestion, camp at Melvern Lake. Nice track out there too for some glow. Unless you like the madness and craziness of the city.

Threw Harmon today. That's an awesome use of that land. Not easy but not super difficult. Great place to work on shots and develop your game. Hope to make it out for glow here soon.

That's great logic Doug. I presume weight will also be a factor.

Awesome. Anyone have input on how many readings would be needed to be obtained and then the conversion chart or formula used to calculate the physical speed of the disc into the speed numbers we are familiar with om our discs?

Yep. Weight is such a critical part of the stability of a disc with a few exceptions in my opinion. Logic would also dictate that weight of the disc should be factored into the windspeed and direction.  The days it sets up perfect to match my bag is generally when I find I shoot better. Then comes the psychology of it and keeping your head focused for the remainder of the round. Anyway, disc wise it's almost imparative that I have different bags for different tracks and conditions. What I really think would be cool if some tech whiz came up with a speed meter to judge what speed you should throw. Just like shafts, heads and grips in ball golf. There is no perfect fit, but it would be a good place to start. Especially for a newbie.

Some of the best ways to do that is talk to seasoned throwers. Hence the reasoning for this comverstation. But when it comes to Mr. Green Jean's, many of whom are the former owners of unmarked discs I find that didn't quite work out for them, what options do they have? They need something or someone to analyze their throwing form and style.

What do you think Jack?

Here is what I would like to know, how can I determine what speed I should throw or what is my arm speed? From what I understand that's going to be the deciding factor on what should be in my bag. For example, the beefiest disc I throw is the X1. But I throw mostly RHFH. Its flight is completely different than throwing a Nuke OS RHFH in pretty much the same conditions.  I also throw RHBH but not that often.  My preferred disc for RHBH is a Gstar Valk. But I also notice if there is a headwind I prefer a Champion Valk or Lucid Renegade and sometimes a Halo.  Then when i throw a Pro Saint it behaves as a highly overstable disc and will always hyper out on me even without a headwind.  Any recommendations (RHFH and RHBH) on other discs which would work based off that info? I would like to condense my bag a little.

I hope that made sense.

Do you think the people would like something like that?

Groups of four with bag swap. Basically, you're not throwing your own bag but you're throwing what someone else has in their bag for the entire round. Suprise them with this. Have a deck of cards and random draw.  For example As swap. Ks swap, Qs swap and so on. If you have a cali, that person goes last and can choose any bag, but their own.

Whomever wins, gets to pick one disc from the bags in play of the three lowest scores. There is no second place. Only winners matter.

Has anyone ever thought of a subgroup on the forum for discussion regarding discs, new and old, as well as performance, recommendations for rhbh, lhfh, etc throwers, comparisons, etc?

I think I am taking over the Monday PDGA Travel League from Rob and I was looking at running a league on Wednesday at Heritage.  Nothing has been approved or confirmed, those are just my thoughts.
