Thanks, after reading the internet tips.  I think until I get comfortable with playing, I'm not going to worry about a score. I'm doing OK to keep the disc in the fairway and out of the weeds.  I read more then once about control vs. distance. Watching others throw , I wanted more then I am capable of. First things first, Pleasent Hill has Rec Par and I need to stick to that.

I used to be a good Ball Golfer and just wanted to do welll with the disc. I understand the mechanics but don't have the technics down.
I think I found a sport I can truly get into. My wife who doesn't care for outdoor stuff , wants to play. I gave her a putter and she tried. That is a good thing for me.

As for now, just don't point and laugh. At lest I'm keeping it out of the weeds.

Hi everybody. I'm an old guy who just started playing and  I'm new to the game. (old Frisbee player)  I have been going to Legecy and P-Hill. Wow I'm addicted and started this as a way to loss weight but have found a new love. The best part is everyone I have ran in to has been very nice and friendly. I really liked the way I was treated at DGW and the poeple I have encountered on the courses have been great.

I would like to say Thank You to the young man that helped me out at P-Hill on Saturday, it helped me put another 40/50 feet to my throw. I'm still working on it.

If you see me out on the courses, give me a break. I'm old and fat and very out of shape but am enjoying my time on the field. I have the summers off and have been going out in the mornings to beat the heat.

Here is what I need to know. I have Par'ed a few baskets and wondered how far do they figure a throw is to make a Par? A 215 ft is Par 3 and a 450 is Par4. How is this figured?

Thank you
