Awesome ! Wonder if those guys used the same disc all round and how far they threw.  Gotta love the short shorts and long hair!

The production was impressive and the graphic of the hole with the animation. It's amazing how slower those discs go, some impressive shots.

Casey Kasem as the announcer?

Meanwhile in the clubhouse...swingers enjoy fondue as they play backgammon while wearing sports coats with corduroy elbows watching Jack Tripper chase Christy up to Mr Ferley's apartment on the color television.

Great vid.  Amazing how far the sport has come.  Every now and then you will find those old school baskets.  It looked like they just had one disc.

I was 3 years old when this happened. I'm sure I had thrown a frisbee but had yet to play dg

I am willing to bet the discs they're using is the CPI All Star.  During the mid to late 70's all the top folks used them.  Then Wham-O bought the company and discontinued the Frisbee :(

Rick may know the history here better than I.
