This weekend at states Jeffrey H Schwass had his golf bag stolen frm his home.

Who has a Leopard, or a shark in their active bag? Exactly.. not very many. So yes your right chris the box comes with discs generally un-used by the average player.. It does have an Aviar though.. =P

Chris... starter set is just three discs in a box. Driver mid and putter. Hope this helps.

Thanks to Ken and Patrick. This is tough for me because I throw mostly found discs. If I pick one up without a name I throw it for a while and see if I like it. If I do then I leave it in my bag.



@Patrick, I'll be sure to throw a comet in his starter pack.



@Ken, I know it's dumb but I always think of the starter packs as being full of discs that they can't get rid of individually.

To Chris Smith. Why don't you buy a starter set for the senior. Like at Dunhams. Let him get used to those and then he can take the reins from there. Just a thought.

I have helped a lot of people start up. I always make my choices based on how they throw. On average you can never go wrong with a Comet its a straight shooter, and shows you their throwing style naturally. If they are hyzering a lot I then recommend moving to stratus / glide / Meteor.



If they are anhyzering a bit, then move them over to a Rock / Buzz / Orc.



They beauty of disc golf is the many disc and styles of throw. So that's the best I can offer with out witnessing the shooter myself.

Let's say you were going to pick up three new discs for a friend that has just started playing. He is of retirement age, currently a ball golfer being converted, has only thrown a borrowed archangel and an avair so far, and currently drives equally forehand and backhand (his max distance is currently and respectably just past the big tree on 8). What discs, weights, and plastics would you pick up for his starter set?



If this is not an appropriate topic for this group I can always move it to my wall. Just let me know.



Thanks in advance.

please disregard any post about mid year event or nominations i will not be hosting an event nor will elections be held at said event.

I nominate Jason Lord for President.

Our #1 Chair needs to be filled by a person who is aware of other members undertakings. Whether it be a good round in

league play, a tounamnet someone attended or a new coarse that was played. The president should be every member's #1 fan.

I believe Jason is the right person at this tme.

I noticed it, no smoking, chewing, e-cigarettes during play. Though as soon as your card is turned in you are free to smoke.
