Sign Language and disc golf

Postby ziggy » Mon Jul 04, 2011 9:16 am

Nice shot
Out of bounds
What disc

What about you?

**-----------------------------Ze list, boss. Zee list------------------------**
Nice shot
Out of Bounds / Safe in bounds
what disc?
Nice up
Are you doing that on Purpose
Falling Putt
Hey Assholes, how about letting me play through
Thank you
You're welcome
Your box/turn
You're out/away
foot fault
hyzer/anhyzer/flex/thumber/tomahawk/roller flick/HSS/LSS/Glide/fade
Score?
Am I 10 meters out?
Who's throw is it?
Want to go for a beer afterwards?
This is the CTP hole - what is CTP hole
Where is basket?
#1 through #18 for hole #
Spotter for this hole?
BLEEP BLEEP for all those times....

I am definitely looking forward to your answers on this Ziggy. As you know Austin has a large deaf disc golf community and working at Disc Nation I usually can only communicate with a pen/paper. I have been wanting to learn a few basics of sign language so that can I can communicate better on the course and at work.

If I come across anything aside from what you listed I will hit you up

ZJ - it's already in the works video-wise. Just hoping to increase this possibility with more heads throwing in their ideas instead of a couple that immediately come to my mind here and then.

You basically have this covered in "nice shot," but we do a lot of "great putt" and "awesome putt" at our weeklies. And since you have "out of bounds" you might also include "safe" or "in bounds" in the case of a spotter making the call from a distance.

going along with the previous, Generally in a tourny if i am spotting a simple thumbs up or down indicates in or out of bounds. One to ask though would be "should/can we have a spotter on this hole?"
