But yes we are a very diverse group. If only we could break some of the stereo types.

I am new to the game, what are these stereotype(s) that you speak of ?

I am familiar w/ "hippie golf", and the stereotypes asscociated with that blatant generalization. Are there others ? Are they regional ?

I am also intersyed in any regional slang disc golf terms.

I am fascinated by the "lingo" of the game. What are some of the terms you use that you believe are unique to your region, your club, or your regular game?

Maybe that is another thread ......

I'm more concerned about the stereotypes that involve controlled substances; I do not like people assuming I have, use or sell such substances.


Or that we are all jobless bums who do nothing but play disc and get wasted.

I couldnt see myself working at a bank. Its hard to see myself working though... lol, whats really sad is when I am teaching I wont be making near as much as I am now hourly (Ive been averaging 60$ a night working a 3-4 hour shift, thats 15-20$ an hour average, friday nights is probably near 30$ an hour :-D I AM SO GLAD TO BE OUT OF THE KITCHEN!!!) but yearly, teaching will be better, I would have more than 15 hours a week ;-)
