if you say "short" too many times, it starts to sound like a weird word.

Looks like we're going to get some rain this evening.  Doesn't look like enough to cancel league, so it's a go.

So we will move to the kinder, gentler Swope Park.  Sign up at 530, tee at 600.  $5 for KCFDC members and  $6 for non-members.  Add a buck for the ace fund.

The weather looks dreadful still for this evening's league.  We are scheduled to play Cliff Drive, but that's looking unlikely.  Cliff is already wet from the thunderstorms this morning.  I don't like cliff in the rain.  Jack Lowe doesn't like  cliff being played in the rain if at all possible. 

I'll make a final announcement on league at 4 pm today, but if we have league, it will happen at Swope.

They have what they call "air" versions of some discs. Usually in the 150 gr. Range. I find the new disc called a "maul"  is very straight and easy to throe. Its only a 7 speed but excellent glide.  Mine goes as far as my much higher speed drivers.

Add to this Riverview Park in Platte City. If you are up north that is a great little 9 hole course for beginners. Very short holes and compact area. Several fairly technical but short holes too.

Disc recommendations:  Mako or Mako 3 are good beginner discs to add to your VRoc, which is also a good choice.  Personally, I throw a Buzzz for my midrange.  I don't agree with don't get a driver mentality.  I think you just need to be careful as to what weight and how fast/speed (first number). I wouldn't get anything faster than a speed 9.  My 2 favorite discs to recommend for beginners are  lighter weight star or gstar FD/Jackyl and a Diamond.  Other discs to consider are TL, Roadrunner, Sidewinder, Valkyrie, Breakout, or Witness.

Course recommendations for Beginners:  Pleasant Hill, Blue Valley of Kansas (Pleasant Ridge Middle School), Swope, Front 9 at Raymore, Harmon Park, William Yates Elementary, Fox Hill Flyers, and Wilbur Young from the short tees.

I agree that mastering the midrange first is a good idea. Start with one or two discs until you are confident that you know what they do, a midrange and a putter. Then work the driver into your game. If you have joint issues then I would recommend that for at least your driver you go very light. Try light Blizzard or Starlite plastic from Innova or something similar from other manufacturers. The lighter weights will be easier on your joints and require less effort to get distance. Don't be afraid to go real light, in Blizzard plastic under 140 grams will float on water too. Something like a Starlite Valkyrie or Blizzard Katana take little effort to get good distance. But beware, throw them too hard and they flip easily.

I would focus on mastering the midrange first.  A Buzzz or Roc or Truth are all very good discs to start with. Very straight.  I can tell you from my experience, that I wish I had just stuck to the midrange until I figured it out.  I spent too much time trying to find the right driver that did what I wanted.  Then as I got better, the disc no longer did what I wanted.  Start with light weight 165g ect.  As the disc starts to turn over, move to heavier weights.  But don't change discs.

As for shorter courses: Blue Valley Kansas is a great beginner course.  Perfect for midrange and putters. https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=4116

Also Sar-Ko-Par.  Nice 9 hole.  https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=6914

Pleasant Hill is a nice, shorter course.
