The mold is the only thing that compares this disc to a wizard. Its nowhere near stable as a wizard, very compareable to a challenger, just a tad bit faster.

The problem comes when the Wizard hits the ground.  Roll Roll Roll away.  Wizards roll away.  Down the hill around the bend and no where near the hole.

Perhaps you should land in the basket more often.

It must be ESP. I've got D Challengers more stable than the two D Focus' i have.

I do with a Challenger.  The Army-man plastic melted down to make the Wizard bounces off the chains.

Yep. Just like I figured.
My knee is not going to be ready by this weekend to play. I just hope I can get around enough to make it out to pick up my players pack and drink a few suds with you guys.
This one sounded like lots of fun too darn it.
The end result was my maniscus was damaged on both sides plus I had some cartilage damage.
I may be ready to play in a few months.
Like I suggested, go ahead and sell my spot Eric and Tim.

1) What time are player's packs available saturday morning?
2) Are there different weights/colors of the discs? Do you have to take an ESP and a D or can u get two of one kind?  Basically I'm asking if we will have varying Focus' to choose from when we get there saturday or will we just get handed two randoms....

Here ya go, Spencer, from Discraft's site:

Quote
2009 Prototype PDGA Approved: For the first time in Ace Race history, this year's disc is a putter! It is now PDGA approved, and will fly under the name Focus. Each player will receive two versions: one in Pro D plastic, and one in ESP

Andy, you can pick up you player's pack starting at 9:00. As far as choice goes, it's one ESP and one D first come, first serve.
Glover, Glad to hear you can make it out even of for just suds and plastic, next time for sure. Get that knee back in shape!
everyone else, I am flippin' stoked about this! I am working on your maps right now. Thanks Dick and Timco. Big thanks to Tim Becks for doing the leg work while I have been working like a dog (the life of adjunct faculty...). Tyrone showing up to spin the wheels o steel too.
So show up, get a group together, and run 'em. Two reminders: we will have a big boy ace fund of ten greenbacks to be split by the number of aces, and while we will provide beverages, (thanks to Gomers and  VitaminWater) we will not have any food (no budget for it), so you might wanna bring a snack  :P
A shout out to Jim Neal as well, high fives all around, but no singing  ;D

Doh! Did I ever mention random doubles afterwards. Five bucks a man, playing tee pads to numbered flags. Ace Race will finish early, so if you can stay, play!

Eric-I don't know who this Andy character is (sounds like trouble...), but thanks for the info-the event is sounding pretty sweet!

I'm relying on my somewhat beginners luck to take everyone out!  (Especially those that have, at least in the past, sported neckbeards...lol)   ;D ::) ;D ::)
