I enjoyed the USDGC simulcast - hey it was free, and I youtube all the time for glimpses around the world of disc golf. I also watch NFL when it's free, although I am not a frequent football player, there is an audience out there for disc golf.
........and players do get hurt in Ultimate. We are a global game, let's golf. No way should ping-pong, basketball, hockey, and flag waving be part of the Olympics, much more than disc golf. With events like the Japan Open <go Pete Cashen!>, USDGC and majors in Europe, who needs the Olympics or X-games. This game isn't so much about the money, it's about getting the world involved as players, not spectators.
Nested minis are part of the standard $15.00 fee. Buy some mulligans too, I'm hoping a lot people are interested. Of course I prefer Cliff, but 2 other guys want WW, I'll call you before 1-30-10 or post here.
Just wondering if there is interest in playing first round away from the crowds to alleviate the backups at Rosie, I would prefer to shoot BV/Cliff or WW in the am, and proceed to the festivities at Rosedale by noonish. I prepaid at Disc Golf World and picked up a nice DX Wraith and nested minis.
Gateway Titans can be played at the newer courses in the Lou, most notably Unger Park(along the Meramac River). They're beefy for sure, built to last a lifetime and very heavy to move. I'm not sure of the prices per basket or cost for powdercoating, but I'd have no problem spraypainting them, maybe change colors every few years or so, or even just for a St. Paddy's tournament.
American made state of the art(iron age)--------Gateway Titan Pro-24 baskets should be considered. BTW the traditional number plates damage discs, be innovative with flags or dome tops(no nickel). FYI circular pads lend the most creativity for artistic drives, I'm not a huge fan of directional pads, although BV pads are the best I've ever seen so far.
you could tie something else on and throw upside-downers so your disc lands on top of the snow, sledding ever so perfectly to rest under the basket, that way you take the gimme and leave the ice formations that refract the sunlight prismatically on the basket.
