Cannot believe they have a new Centre for Disc Golf in Croydon, and only in a childhood haunt..Lloyds Park....
I'll try to get some pics.

I was looking through some links for the Croydon course. Interesting, it's been around since 2007 and the contact for the course has a really low PDGA number. If you're only 4 digits like he is, then you've been around a while. I also see he only has 2 career wins like me. lol

The final destination west will be Beaver Ranch. I've heard good things.
I wonder if the air pressure helps or hurts you? Use heavier discs I guess?

And of course lol @ Beaver Ranch.

They become VERY overstable at higher altitudes so discs that will turn and burn to the right on a RHBH throw will become straight flyers, and yes, lolz.

This is a fun one to watch the live scores with my guy Philo in 2nd going into round 3. I'll be checking the YouTube coverage at some point:

Oh that sounds like the **** for someone like me with a noodle for a throwing arm.

Holy... I also just noticed The Legend, Barry Schultz kicking some serious ass in MP50. Dayum.

Thats the plan. I've got a bag full of Impacts, Mustangs, and Panthers (all considerably understable) ready to chuck as far as I can get them ****ers to go.

The 2 problems I see with throwing down a mountain though are getting up the mountain to throw down it and then hopefully finding where I threw it down the mountain. Big hurdles.

I've got my itinerary all mapped out. Five hours of travel each day is very doable, so I'll have plenty of time to get some rounds in at each stop. One of which will be a 2-day stay in sunny downtown Des Moines so I get to see all the corn. Then we'll whisk away to Kearney NE for a brief round of quality disc golf and then finally on to Denver where we'll be staying at a fancy shmancy place until we get kicked out because I should be broke by then.

For the ride home, I'll probably just drive straight through with a stop at Starved Rock.

Played at a course in Raleigh and in Dublin, VA.

Played like sh*t but had a few good shots including a 100 yard birdie for a last shot in Raleigh so I was pretty happy about that.

*foot

lol

A 300ft birdie would be a Conrad shot.

Good to hear you're getting out to throw! Once you start getting better at it, it's like a synergistic vortex that sucks you right in.

The P McB Foundation was here yesterday. I had some last minute changes to the Illinois State DGC's players guide so I was stuck at home. There was also a podcast hosted by my compadre's but I can't find it atm.

It's all good. I recently found an actual hole sign buried in the dirt from when a course around here was first put in in the early 00's and it has the length listed in yards. They all did on that course when it was first installed. It was confusing and funny because it's a really short course. The graphics guy obviously had no idea what DG was and just saw the word Golf and went with that. I gave the sign to the course designer, who's a friend. He was a bit tickled about it thinking back. It took them a while to get it corrected.
