Good - I learned how to throw my Aviar. I still can't putt (haha) but I am now comfortable throwing it; about 250', hyzer, and anhyzer - I typically have issues with anhyzer, so that is nice. Learning to throw that discs has helped me with some of my other discs.

Good - I shot my 2nd PB in 3 weeks! (and walked away with the #9 tag!)

Good - my B-day was this week - took the day off and played... it was 65 and sunny, what perfect weather

Bad - My Buzzz is still gone... I think the creek decided to keep that one. Stupid creek.

The Good - Got to stop in the Gotta Go Gotta Throw shop while in Minneapolis and look at lots of discs. Picked up a E Element-X with a slight defect on the rim and they gave me a couple bucks off :D

The Bad - Threw the above disc three times and the center dimple on the top of the disc has cracked and looks like its ready to fall out :x

We have this on our new championship course. Not looking forward to seeing them grow back this summer. I don't think wishful thinking is going to stop them either.

Whoooo boy, stinging nettle is a nasty, weed-like plant that will make your skin feel like it's on fire as soon as you touch it! Nasty stuff!!
Until our course was mowed we had some almost knee high patches of the stuff. I can tromp through it pretty well because I dealt with it so much doing landscaping but some guys won't go near it.

Good- As you might of read I got my first ace this past weekend and it was during a tournament

Bad- Got 5th but shot a 65, 56 (course did not change), and a 67.

Ugly- The Ace came on the 67 round, not the 56.

Ugly - Everything about my round last night! My game was clicking a few days ago, huge drives, solid putts, and then last night I fell on my face. My timiing was off and it threw me off mentally. Totally screwed my whole round. Today is another day, so I plan on doing much better tonight after work.
