It was during the Fredrock's Weekly Singles. I was originally going to throw my Nuke ESP on this particular basket from the red tee, but changed my mind and went with my Super Roc. It was pretty windy too, so I aimed well right of the basket & let the wind do the rest and it went in! Since the original #1 basket was taken out due to the construction of new soccer fields, We used a Discraft Mach Lite portable basket that's set atop of this huge pile of dirt. It's about 200-220 in length, but with approx. 20-30ft in elevation.

Hell yeah, my very first forehand ace! Threw a sweet one from the short tee & it hit nothing but the chains then dropped down. Wasn't sure how it stayed in or how to react afterward, but it was a thing of beauty. I'm sure it was pretty loud too.

My 2nd ace in as many weeks. Unfortunately it came off my very first throw during practice round right before the 1st round of Hall of Chains!

Happened during the Spring Chicken tournament. Threw my 1st Run Champion Boss & aimed far-right of the basket as usual knowing that my disc usually skips to get me close enough to the basket. Only this time it skipped off the ground & went right into the basket! Couldn't believe it actually hit the chains and stayed in as it skipped towards the basket so fast.

Happened on the original #5 basket. Threw a big right to left hyzer. The disc somehow went thru the tree that's guarding the basket & slammed the basket. Witnessed by several boy scouts working on a project in the park at the time along with my father.

My first ever ace. It was a slight downhill throw. As my disc was fading left at the end, it hit the branch right & above the basket and went in!
