I lived in the Anchorage area for a while, but now I'm in Fairbanks.
Thanks for the invitation, but I have guests arriving this week.

Nice! How do you like Birch Hill? I haven't played it yet but will for the first time at the Solstice tourney coming up. Are you planning on playing that? I think it's the 18th...

Hi and welcome. You need a midrange disc at the least and depending on the courses you play maybe a fairway driver too. Valkyrie is versatile but on the fast side.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

My guest's span both weekends unfortunately.
Birch hill has one of the best front 9s that I have played in four states. The back nine is repetitive and not at all memorable. Bring bug spray!

Hey all,

Finally signed up after lurking for months. Just started playing around March, 2010 and got the bug big time. Was living in Jacksonville FL and played Ed Austin (Fore Palms) Course a lot. Then moved to Columbia MD around the beginning of December. Waited for things to thaw and now I can be found at Rockburn Branch at least 2-3 afternoons a week. I also currently live right across the street from Cedar Lane Park and put in a lot of practice sessions over there. (awesome practice area) If anyone is around the area and wants to get together give me a holler. I play a lot of solo rounds, occasionally join other groupls or play with friends, but I'd be MOST interested in finding a field throwing partner who would be interested practicing form together etc.

Been coming to these boards since I stared playing a little over a year ago. Can't say thank you enough to all the big contributors to this site for the wealth of DG knowledge made available. I come here almost every day, so thought it was about time I registered and said thanks.
