If you are looking for the most overstable line-up for blizzard discs, Ape or Boss or PD2 would be my choice.

Threw a 150 Blizzard wraith and was very surprised how far it went with little effort. Im thinking of getting one but perhaps something more overstable.

I like my blizzaed destroyer 153 g. I think they are worth trying.

It is not all hype,

In the right conditions they work well. You have to remember what you are throwing and not try to kill it. I have a couple that I keep in the bag. I'll let you throw them.

Personal/Equipment question for DFOK folks: a lot of you seem to have these newish, very lightweight Blizzard discs -- what do you think of them? I haven't thrown one yet, but I'm finally getting curious. I know they were kind of a novelty for a while, but now that you've played with them, do you think they are a good addition to your bag? Any thoughts on which one? I would probably want to go with something pretty stable, like a Destroyer or Wraith. I have a tendency to flip lighter discs. I know you have to throw them differently, but I haven't gotten the hang of it yet.

Hole #1 & hole #2 were pretty much designed together...

Hole #1 was kind of designed from the basket up. We knew where tee pad #2 needed to be, then we saw a good place for basket #1 & looked & looked & looked for a good tunnel to go up the hill.

Initially tee pad #1 was supposed to be much closer to the opening in the trees. However we kept pushing it back to get out of the path of the Parks & Rec. pick-ups & lawn mowing equipment.

I don't see how you look at those tangles of trees and see a golf course. Many thanks to our DFOK visionaries!

I guess you guys must have worked so hard for Warner in these historic days. That leads kudos from someone else on DGCR. http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums/showthread.php?t=64034

Here is one of #2:

Happy Memorial Day to all. If you're playing today, grab a few that are Red White & Blue and let them fly!


Jon Tveite    May 27, 2012 at 2:13pm

Good, sounds like a plan.


Mark Kewley    May 27, 2012 at 9:15am

Jon & Austin, I'm in for Monday.


Rick Petrie    May 27, 2012 at 1:32am

Thanks Jon. I'm glad to see there are so many DFOK travel options this weekend. Please let me know how that Abilene course is holding up... I too am considering playing in that tourney next month.

Speaking of travel options, Ya gotta read at least part of the article below. WOW! I think he should be made an honorary DFOKer.



Austin Cranston    May 26, 2012 at 11:24pm

I definitely still want to go. It looks like the rain will hold off too, so it should be a good time.


Jon Tveite    May 26, 2012 at 9:39pm

I'm glad you guys got something planned that works for Rick. I would go but I have other plans on Sunday.

I would still like to head west to Thomas Park on Monday, and hitting Abilene on the way there or back. Mark, you expressed an interest, as did Austin. Are you guys still up for it? Anyone else want to make the trip?


Rick Petrie    May 26, 2012 at 9:32am


Sounds like you and Kirk have a well thought out plan/schedule. I'm looking forward to it.


Daisuke Takahashi    May 26, 2012 at 12:46am

For #1, I'm happy for both Crestview and Lake shawnee.

For #2, Big shunga's natural grass teepads might be wet and slippy in the early morning. That's what I'm kind of worried about and why I would like to play there afternoon.


Rick Petrie    May 25, 2012 at 11:44pm

That Topeka trip will work good for me! I love playing the Big Shunga temp course... Gotta do that once a year.

I have two proposals/opinions, but veto them if needed.

1. I prefer Crestview over Lake Shawnee.

2. We should play the more shaded course of our two in the afternoon.

( It would be super cool if we had time for Big Shunga, then Centennial (Lawrence). Maybe next time though)


Daisuke Takahashi    May 25, 2012 at 11:02pm

Hi fellows,

Kirk and I made a plan to go Topeka on this Sunday. We'll leave Manhattan around 8, play Crestview or Lake shawnee in the morning, and then go Big Shunga, which was temporary course for tournament two weeks ago but is still available to play, in the afternoon. We'll come back in town around 5:00. Let me know if you are interested in,
