    Dan aka GSWeave,

    Thanks for putting this together for us again this year. You da Man!

    Last year I led a small group (3 of us) down to Greenbriar State Forest for a round of Disc Golf, one of my recreational passions. I plan on doing the same this year.

    For those who have never heard of Disc Golf, it is like regular "ball" golf but with a flying disc similar to what you might call a Frisbee. The rules are basically the same. You start with a drive from a T, then you throw an upshot from your mark to the green, then you putt your disc into a chain basket which completes your hole. Most courses are a Par 3. If you ever enjoyed throwing a Frisbee I gurantee you will love Disc Golf!

    As I know that most ADVriders are cheap bastards, I would like to inform you of the Disc Golf costs. Most discs cost between $9-20. You need three to start, a putter, a mid-range and a driver. Total outlay to start about $30-40 and here is the best part, most courses like the one at Greenbriar State Forest are located in public parks and are FREE! Did you see that, Fucking Free!!!! It is a cheap bastards dream sport.

    I plan on bringing a few extra discs and am willing to teach any and all who would like to learn. If you already play, bring your discs. If you would like to buy a few for yourself, check out this PDGA site where you can find links to on line stores and links to instructional articles. http://www.pdga.com/ You will also find a listing of more than 3000 Disc Golf Courses in the US. I bet there is one close to where you live. I am lucky and have a course 1/4 mile from my house.

    I hope that a few inmates will join me.

    Disc Golf - It is in the Air!

    Can't say that I disagree, but watch the third turn heading west toward WV. It has been known to eat bikes.:deal

    Sorry man, I read this and kept thinking of the ADBAA (American Dodge Ball Association of America) from the Dodgeball Movie. Dodge, dip, duck, dive and...................dodge. :lol3

    I'm hoping to make the rally. It has been several years since I made the last one.

    LOL :rofl

    I actually liked that movie. Had some real laugh out loud moments.

    As for Disc Golf and the PDGA it is real and the sport is very addictive. Plus it tricks you into getting some exercise. :clap My home course, just blocks from my home is on the shore of Lake Erie. We have several holes that you have fantastic lake views. If you like being outdoors and like throwing a Frisbee, Disc Golf is a blast.

    I have started incorporating a round when I travel by bike as I can put a small bag of discs in a saddle bag. It feels good to mix two passions.

    I'll shut up about Disc Golf now. :deal

    PS I hope you make the rally as well.
