Kenai Eagle Disc Golfers

We debated Kenai Eagle Eagles for a second year, and it is probably still on the table, but for the moment, we wanted to expand our various plastic collections. Personally, I wanted Nukes, Buzzzes and Predators. As for the Ape, yes, it is way too much for most people, but it is new and fast and fun, meaning most players want to try one. So, for now Apes (not sure if I can throw them), teebirds (who doesn't love them) and leopards.

That is awesome to hear that you got all that money for the tee pads. What is your goal and how much is saved for that project? Can't wait to see 14 get a tee pad...I have a love/hate relationship with that pad. I got an ace on it and it has drawn blood from me and toppled Chris (my gf) more than once.
Why not get some Eagle stamped Eagles?
Apes are way too much for most people (400'+ arm and/or wicked headwinds), unless they're used to torquing forearms and backhands to the infinite degree....won't help with aquiring good form.
Can't wait to see the next stamp.

The Challenge was a success, we're at $300 and counting for the teepad fund. If you need a putter, we have plenty of challengers left. I talked to Parks & Rec about the new posts on the course, and the possibility of another bear-proof can on 12. No promises were made, but it was an encouraging conversation. As for the Kenai Eagle Open. Eight members attended the meeting tonight. For the tournament we will be ordering from Innova. Be on the lookout for custom Eagle stamped Ape ... more

As for the Kenai Eagle Open. Eight members attended the meeting tonight. For the tournament we will be ordering from Innova. Be on the lookout for custom Eagle stamped Apes, Teebirds and Leopards in the near future. If you have ideas for the stamp get them in this week. We'll be voting on designs for the disc next Tuesday at leagues. And this year we will be looking for league players to step up and help pay for the initial order.

Change of plans, looks like Hiram is working Sat. but off tomorrow. We will now be coming up tomorrow (Friday) around noon.

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.

Fact, posting the basics now. The disc design looks great!

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.
