As a first year member i feel that people have not talked to me or been that friendly. i think that nomination should take place every year plain and simple. also pat i dont care about the past i care about the future of this group and the this sport.

I am baffled by your approach/attitude larry. You make it sound sound like these guys are not doing a good job. Frankly they got the job last year as they are the only ones trying to better the club anyway even as just members they helped out, did stuff to improve the club because they wanted it to improve. From what i can see they are still the only ones doing stuff for the club to better it.

From what i can see they are still the only ones doing stuff for the club to better it. Getting sponsers, showing up hours early to set up for tournaments, mowing some the course with push mowers, talking with city council, park rec board..ect and these people did all this before even asked or required by there positions. And you say these people make you sick....people who **** about people busting there asses in there free time to make your disc golf experience the best they can make it makes me sick. The job they posses is not a popularity contest its a comment to help the club regardless of the **** people give them. My opinion theres not a single person not already on the board putting in the effort to get nominated for a spot anyway. Another thing to realize is this is the first year this club has had board members it use to be ran completely by one couple and they did amazing, so it will take some time before a club gets its style and groove going. Your opinions matter they listen to all suggestions complaints and comments. Just make them constructive and show up to the board meetings to express your opinions. ****ing just to **** solves nothing.

wht really wht. do we live in cuba. honestly this is bs and wht no one else matters. well this really sucks shame on those people for doing that. so my thoughts dont matter nor do those of others. honestly why would this happen are these people worried that others cant do the job. this makes me sick.

ATTENTION ALL DISC GOLFERS
This weekend at states Jeffrey H Schwass had his golf bag stolen frm his home.
We will be posting the contents and we what your help in finding the low life that took this. All discs have his name on them.
Also a basket was stolen aprox the same time from his yard.

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
Ken Long-Old Man August 6, 2011 at 2:55pm
Chris... starter set is just three discs in a box. Driver mid and putter. Hope this helps.
Chris Smith August 6, 2011 at 12:06pm
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.
Ken Long-Old Man August 6, 2011 at 8:56am
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.
Patrick Fulkerson August 5, 2011 at 10:19pm
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.
Chris Smith August 5, 2011 at 9:45pm
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.

From my understanding these are the bags your getting with the ace race this year.
larry j July 20, 2011 at 2:24pm
i was +6 for my round on tuesday nite. i golfed with tony, blake , and jason lord.
Jason Lord July 11, 2011 at 5:39pm
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.
Jim Knudson July 10, 2011 at 9:56pm
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.
Jim Knudson June 20, 2011 at 3:36pm
Charlotte Players dominated the Recreational division at the 2011 Freeland Open taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
Good job guys.
Mike Kemp May 24, 2011 at 11:45am
I noticed it, no smoking, chewing, e-cigarettes during play. Though as soon as your card is turned in you are free to smoke.
Patrick Fulkerson May 21, 2011 at 11:14pm
Anyone notice the new policy change for PDGA, They are testing it out for worlds tournament (pro and amateur) Smoking of all kinds are prohibited, including E-cigarettes and chewing tobacco. Pending how it goes it will be in the fall ballot for rule book entry to used at all sanctioned tournaments.
