  1. This is our game of choice. We call it swedes because a guy from Sweden taught ir to me years ago, and I don't remember what he called it. https://www.pagat.com/beating/shithead.html
  2. Man, I'm sorry for the difficulty of your decision, and the disappointment you may be feeling, but am glad to read that family life is good and that your job's currently safe. Surly will live without your updates, and im certainly relieved that your decision is unrelated to death, injury, or family problems.
  3. I never paid attention to rewards, there may not actually be one, I'm just usually right on the line of master III and champion, and it pisses me off to finish in masters after being in champion.
  4. I feel like ladder is just all timing. I don't play for a week after reset. Climb my way up till I'm running 50/50, then give it another week. Mid month nearly everyone everyone is artificially high. Just climb until you can't anymore, give it a few days, then try again. For last week, don't put yourself in jeopardy of falling a rung.
  5. You'll probably miss the bass run at both, but stranger things have happened. Colorado bend is my favorite state park for easy camping. It's damn near perfect.
  6. 40 years for rock throwing... concurrently with 99 for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

    As stated above, I haven't played in quite a while, but looking around on amazon, I'd get this plus another putter (everyone needs a putter, the others y'all can share) INNOVA Disc Golf Starter Set - Colors May Vary 160-180g - DX Putter, Mid-Range, Driver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079581M7S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_5b56Db0V7EAPJ Inova is what I always preferred throwing and it's a good price for this set. Drivers are all different, and you just have to find what works for you. With three options, it's a good start. Your 11 year old likely won't benefit much from having an approach disc. It's not crucial by any means. The only thing I'll say about the above set is that it's their lower end plastic. It won't break, but you'll get nicks in the sides, and eventually they'll fly differently than they did when new. However, they'll last for quite a while. Certainly long enough for you to know whether you like playing and develop a sense of what kind of disc you'll like. Pay attention to the numbers on the top of the disc, and think about what you want differently if you were to upgrade (more speed, less curve, more weight, etc.) Their "star" plastic used to be the higher end discs, and they'd run about $15 per disc iirc. They seemingly last forever and are very durable. I've never retired any that I can remember (not willingly at least...) 15 at searight has claimed a few as its own.

    I haven't played in forever, but I could use an outing one of these days
  9. Glad to see it's on the small town/road trip gems map already. That looks glorious.
  10. Asked my wife for fun. She said "Victory! I don't know, what are you asking me?" Pretty solid answer I think.
  11. If you are Scottish lord, then i am Micky mouse
