Hey Gang,
It is I... Jerry from a little town called Fort Wayne Indiana (AKA Fort Fun!)... I live 3 blocks from one of the disc golf courses in town and want to give it all a go... So I will be lurking around and will try not to sound too stupid when I post something... :shock:

Respect

~ Jerry

Welcome aboard Jerry. You've come to the right place to advance your game and the only stupid question is the one that goes unasked.

What's up fellas,

My name is Chris, I live in the suburbs of Chicago. I've been on DGCR for a couple years under the same name, I keep out of the bullshit and really just use the marketplace over there. I've been reading over here for a couple days and like the more adult atmosphere.

I've been playing DG for 8ish years (4 years competitively). I collect OOP rhynos.

Thanks for having me.

Cheers.

Welcome. OOP Rhynos? Do you mean the hard Pro blend or what?
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.

Hello everyone, my name is Dylan representing the women disc golfers. I am from Michigan. Started discing 2 years ago, but stopped after 6 months as I moved somewhere that didn't have any courses nearby. Now that I am back, I am starting to get back to throwing more. So it feels a lot like starting over again.

Hey everyone, my name is Lori and I'm from Wilmington, NC. I've been playing now for roughly 8 months and love it. There are several courses near me, and several surrounding where I live as well so I'm lucky. I usually go to Castle Hayne Park and play there since it's the closest to me. :]

Hi Lori and welcome. The Carolinas are one of disc golf Meccas thanks to the numbers and quality of the courses so you're indeed lucky.

Hi all, Mike from Chicago here. Been playing since 2003. Was pretty seriously into competitve play around 2005-2009, playing 20-30 tournaments a year and running a local doubles league. Kinda fell out of the game and only played once ever 6 weeks or so since then, but just registered for my first tourney in 3 years. Excited to get back into it and probably shooting around a 930ish level since my putting is rusty.
