I'll be in anchorage (barring serious problems). But Ian and the rest of the guys should be around.

Is there league play this weekend? Hiram and I might come up.

Ian says all baskets have been recovered. With stern warning to Mom that the next time the Police will be involved.

Be on the lookout for Ian, Casey, and Rem's baskets. Someone stole them last night. Ian has a red topped all metal portable. Casey has a red DGA portable, and Rem has a blue skillshot. Keep your eyes peeled for baskets in new places in the community.

My turn! Andrew, these guys are right. This will be my 6th year playing and I wish I would have known how valuable knowing your discs is. I used to just throw a disc and wonder where it would land. Little by little I put the pieces together and now I know and understand what my discs will do (with or without wind). My FLX Buzzz is my money mid range disc. At one point I put that disc in my "spare discs" box. Once I saw that "everyone" else threw one I pulled it out of the box and figured out what was wrong. I wasn't aware of all the different ways to throw the Buzzz. Now I know.

Andrew - give the Latitude 64 Fuse a try. Or the Comet. I think the Fuse has a much more comfortable grip. Learn to throw slower discs on a hyzer flip to hyzer finish, hyzer flip to flat, and hyzer flip to turnover. When you start to get these shots down with a straight mid you will throw those drivers less and less.

I agree with Brian. It's time to work the midranges, a little more control and with time almost as much distance. Comet, Stratus, Cobra or Stingray may also be good discs to try out.

Andrew, I have a thought. Try to work on your anhyzer with a midrange disc instead of the sidewinder. There are many to choose from but my favorite is the meteor. This disc will go just as far if released correctly. Good luck!

Really have to get a grip on my anhyzer...lost my fav sidewinder (again) yesterday when It got away from me..only benifit I see it it makes me learn how to thow the other discs in my bag...I miss my sidewinder and vulcan..sighhhhh

There aren't a lot of benches in Alaska, that I can think of. As far as short, fairly flat courses. Your local course is about as pleasant as it gets. In Anchorage you can try Westchester, I don't know what the setup is like now, but there isn't a ton of elevation change. Eagle River HS course isn't too hard either. For sitting alternatives, try something like these: http://www.dynamicdiscs.net/servlet/the-Dynamic-Discs-Apparel/Categories . I'm pretty sure you can get a less expensive version at Sports Authority.

Sorry, I couldn't call in to the meeting to night, I was working late. It looks like you guys have things under control and you know you always have my support. Good luck and I'll keep you posted on the progress of the course in Homer.

Thanks Brian...is your car big enough to bring both boxes down? I think we're working toward a full set of yellow tees, the goal being to have them installed for the KEO next year. After the yellows, the blues, then world domination.
Andrew a couple of people mentioned you tonight. I made sure to tell them you were healing up to steal the best tags this year. Hopefully the knee is coming along well.
Brian Gutzwiller December 16, 2010 at 3:36am
You guys sound like you are off to a great start. I will donate number 1's yellow and blue tee boxes next spring. This should be a good start and I wish you the best of luck. Congratulations !
