I played a local course in 1976 (Brahan Springs) mostly in and out of a large pine tree stand. You didnt find many courses around the south in the 70's. The baskets were different, metal domes on top that looked like trash can lids, until Steady Ed change the course and they installed his basket designs (Mach I). We petty much threw standard frisbees back then and people were not getting the distance people do today. And when it was cold and you hit a tree you often cracked a disc. Having discs that fly with stable, overstable and under stable are some of the biggest improvements. The sport is really growing. Love to see new courses opening up with all types of play from beginner style ace run courses to the super long pro courses. It never gets old playing a new course. Love the number of manufactures available today with just about any style, type of plastic and color discs you want. We had very few colors to choose from and really a limited selection of plastics even in the 90's.
