No real questions, just get her to talk about her history in the sport, how it was in Canada when she started, how it is different down here in NC, how she's maintained her longevity in the sport, her world championships, how she hopes to continue.

I heard her in the other ladies night out and she is quite eloquent. Just kind lead her into something and let her talk.

EDIT: okay here's a funny question. What is her favorite Tim Hortons doughnut? and which one does she think would fly the farthest?

What is the craziest disc golf bet you have made and tell us about the near ace at worlds 2003 :-D
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.

It was interesting that she moved back to the Wm's Open division last World's; she had played Masters in her two previous World's. What was it that made her decide to play Open last year and what does she anticipate playing this summer?

After 5 Women's Pro World Titles, serving as the Commissioner of the PDGA, acquiring her Doctorate in Chemistry and becoming an Executive for a major Pharmaceutical Company, when does she plan to give up her up slacker ways and make something of herself?

Ask her to demonstrate her Canadian accent and her new found southern drawl. Does the Ehh go before or after the Y'all? What does ABOOT mean?

Did she make Kevin Stewart take a shower and wash his clothes before agreeing to be his doubles partner at Worlds? Was there ever a more mismatched doubles team than the prim and proper Elaine King and the raucously intoxicated, out-of-control Kevin Stewart?

How much farther does she throw a disc than Eric Vandenberg (her husband)?

How does a Discraft girl get along in Innova country?

If i still have a chance to ask her, my question would be, what do you think is the best golf disc she'd been using in any game before?
