Well - THOSE AIN'T NO FRISBEE'S!!
Totally obsessed now.
I'm 59 and a RHFH thrower off the tee and back hand most of the other time. More distance forehand and it's easier on my body! Not great distance yet but I started this about 5 weeks ago and seem to gain 10 feet a week. 210f on GOOD drives.
Columbus Wi -25 miles north of Madison WI
Patriot (go to driver)
(2) Leopards 168g/153g
(2) Avair P&G
next purchase will be a Valerie (I think)

Got in to metal chains in the 90's and was in complete awe! Although once a little competitive, am into the sport for it's health and mind benefits now, along with it's fellowship and personal competitive enjoyment. Throw right handed and have an air bounce techinque left over from my Whamo freestyle days ... hard to break! Will be eternally an AM and am perfectly fine with that ... just give me a good course and the time to enjoy it. I try to promote the sport when ever and where ever. In that sense, I post the following:
An observation I've seen for most DG events of clubs and TD's is the absence of a proper online system to communicate event results and offer organized leagues or points series on the web. Santioning organizations offer these services but registration and per player events fees are tacked on. These fees can reach hundred's of dollars for larger events and are potentially taken from event payouts. What if a club did not want to sanction their event but wanted a points series or league to offer their membership? Most clubs I have observed use a spreadsheet and post results via a pdf or some sort of other means ... all less than adequate.
In an effort to promote the sport for even the smallest club or association, I am in the process of developing a DG datebase to handle these objectives. The intention is to widen the communication of event results and competitive rankings for all clubs ... large and small.
If acceptable, I would like to link to a demo (under a separate thread) and ask for player/club feedback to assist in development features.
Would this be acceptable on Disc Golf Review forums? If so, is anyone interested?
