hope you are dominating in the disc golf world, i cant wait to get back on a course in about another month. the hike is going well, although the plans changed, but for the better. we are now hiking the length of the long trail in vermont.

I only played with the family on my first round. I found that I had much more consistent distance with my forehand than with my backhand (I have a tendency to throw downward, and hit the ground 30 feet in front of me). I would like to get better with both to be more consistent. But I understand it will take some time. Should be fun getting there, though. :)

Ed Meadows    July 6, 2009 at 11:58pm

I'm not very good right now. My backhand is terrible, and my forehand throws are passable, given that I just started. But with some practice and a bit of time, they'll come around, I think. Where do you come into Huntington from?

Ed Meadows    July 6, 2009 at 11:49pm

I'm in Huntington (Rotary Park). I've only just begun playing. Just played my first round, and really enjoyed it! :)
