Sounds right, except I think the buzz was a Wasp :-)

Unfortunately, Des was injured, and unable to complete the tournament.

Yes, Feldberg and Nikko were in the poison oak. When my wife and I were running the doubles event, Dave was in such agony that I asked my wife to run to the pharmacy and grab something stronger than tecnu. The next day he went to the hospital to get a shot.

Yeah, its a fact of life out here whenever you stray off the fairway. PO is native, and its root structures are robust and difficult to pull completely. Once you become an expert on the local plants, it is super easy to spot PO and avoid getting a lot of exposure. Its when folks don't know which plant is which, and go right into a juicy thicket, that things get bad.

Still, Feldberg knows PO...he told me that he never has problems with the PO in Oregon, and wasn't afraid to wade into it. So he was surprised that he had such a strong reaction here in Cali.

Anyways, we have the 2 meter rule (it was funny to see people whine about that!). We don't have short tees (world champions aren't bred from sissy tees). And we have poison oak, stinging nettles, and even nastier stuff off the fairways. That's the essence of California disc golf. Uncompromising challenge.

Did you know that stinging nettles, besides being a painful nuisance plant, are awesome to eat? Heat/moisture (or drying) denature the barbs that deliver the sting & they taste great. I used to forage them all the time when I was a field archaeologist, then blanch & saute them with pasta, sorrel (also foraged), garlic, & lemon. Deelish!

Any more news on what happened to Climo? I know everyone thinks he is irrelevant now but he is still a living legend. Will this affect his career enough to where he'll start playing Masters from now on? O.o

The Champ injured his arm while on a 2 day rowing trip in Florida. He just rowed too hard, and had too much fun. He was certain that he'll recover, but he needed a little more time before throwing a tournament since he didn't want to do even worse damage. It was a smart move. He says he never competes in Masters, and has no plans to do so. But a sign of getting older is when you start to get injuries in cases where you never would have been hurt previously. I'm sure he knows it. The poor guy was bummed out. At least he got to try and win at poker a couple times while in Santa Cruz.

I heartily dislike tea made from stinging nettles. Health nuts love stinging nettles for their nutritional value. For a saltier non breakfast kind (not sweet) pancake you can use ground stinging nettles too. A little like spinach in pancakes.

jsun i've never come across PO and don't mind if i never do but i was surprised that the stinging nettles are worse for you than PO. I was lucky in having trousers on but unlucky to not have thick enough trousers in filming one throw this year when i had to remain perfectly still and operate the camera and zoom a lot for 20 seconds. While having my right knee on the ground in a tall bush of stinging nettles. I wasn't tired after that i can tell you :-) The perfect cure for being tired.
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.

If you ever come to DeLaveaga (something you should do), you will come across PO.

I dunno if your high cost of living drained everyone's funds, but there are only 5 or so players rated over 1000 registered for the PFDO... It's an NT!

Hey no worries dude there'll be as much drugs in Cali after i leave if i ever come there. I don't touch the stuff. You might be short of a few brewskies though.
