    Who here plays?
    How long have you played?
    Where do you play?
    What do you throw?

    I started playing in '08 but tore a ligament in my thumb at BJJ and had to stop for over a year and am just getting back into it.

    I play mostly at morely field in san Diego

    And am re- learning how to throw for distance. Sticking to slow speed discs like leopards and Orcs.

    I was going to deliver some invitations to my friend one time but then I ran into some guys playing disc golf, or "frolf" if you will, so I started playing and lost track of time and when I got home my friend called me and was all "Where are those invitations!" so I rushed back out of the house to take them to him and slipped on the stairs and ended up in the hospital
    Same hospital where my fiance died

    I've played off and on since 00. I like to throw a beast and a cyclone. I played all over Minnesota but now I live in Wisconsin. Haved played in the snow quite a few times. Got a hole in one at Kaposia once. Its a big course in Minnesota used for world championship one time. Smoked a lot of grass when I was most into it.

    I have a pair of champion beasts that I throw when I just have to go straight as a laser.

    Just picked up a trio of star xcaliber's and they were not a bad purchase. They're so over stable I can crank them with everything I have and they barely turn over. Probably going to be my main drivers for a while.

    I've never played and I've been wanting to try it for a while but no one I know has any interest; they think it's stupid and for kids.
    I don't even know the rules that well but it looks pretty fun and like a good excuse to do a light workout outside the house for a change.
    I may try setting up a Meetup for beginners and see if anyone signs up.

    I'm pretty terrible at disc golf but my cousins are really into it. In October of this year, they're turning Dodgers stadium into a disc golf course for the weekend and we bought some tickets for it.

    Yeah, I'm going to that as well. The one they did at the titans stadium looked like a great experience and this should be about the same.

    They turned the niners stadium into a 9 hole golf course last month
    Looked pretty dope


    Also I'm glad to see that the dodgers know they wont be needing to use their stadium in Choketober
