Well, you've done it again with a perfect example - disregarded everything I addressed in favor of some phantom discussion we weren't even having.
And wiki it, it has many, many meanings ;)

no way they got all the glass, reinforcing old stereotypes about disc golf being a "goofing around" kind of hobby, needless destruction...

All I could keep asking myself during this video was, "What is the point?"

what were they hoping to get out of this?
Throw discs, and forget about life for awhile...

Why don't you test that theory out? I think you should find out what course they filmed the video at. If the course is in a public park, then take the time to forward the video to the city's parks and recreation department. I would be fascinated to hear the results.

Why couldn't they have just shot this in someones garage, warehouse, or an old abandoned building? Poor decision.

Thanks for backing me up, I agree it would have been perfectly fine if done in a garage or other setting besides a public park. Young kids don't really understand this, and it's something that some people unfortunately never learn, and they're the ones we have to worry about when it comes to the PR side of disc golf organizing.

This pretty much sums it up.

Also, it's good to know there are some easily huttburt, condescending posters here. For a while it was looking like DGCR had them on lock.

Yoopers can't make hats?

Hilarious.

I've seen those before, didn't know they were from the u.p. Kinda has a euro-cheese look to it, a lot of people are finnish up there, maybe that has something to do with it.

Hey Stiff- ever been to a beach up there that was completely grey? 3 mile point maybe? Buddy of mine was taking me on a day tour on some 4 wheelers, and we came out of the woods and hit this beach that was all grey sand. Something to do with the runoff from the iron mining nearby. Pretty neat.

No. I hate beaches, water, bodies of water with beaches, being wet, sand, and being wet around sand.
