I don't want to admit this but I think I account for about a quarter of those hits.

Despite all the reading... I'm still throwing my Beast only 30-40 feet.

Congrats Blake,
DGR is definitely THE source for DG info, but you also need to thank the PDGA for shooting themselves in the foot.

I have noticed a lot more activity on the boards lately.

Wow. This site has grown quite a bit from when I joined. I just found this account becuase I have gotten back into disc golf. I didn't play at all last summer. I'm glad to be back.

With that kind of traffic, you really need to be selling stuff. Blake, you have already established your brand and that's something companies pay millions of dollars to do. Between some well selected merch, a book by you and a video or two by you, you would have a hugely successful biz.

I agree, I know everyones been saying that alot lately too.

Guys here in denver still talk about that blake_t guy thats posted in our fourms (http://www.milehighdiscgolf.org/phpBB2/index.php)once or twice, and they wonder how could someone that informed not be out there doing that sort of stuff. Hey if Scott Stokely can sell as many videos as he did, Im sure you can too blake ;-) (btw those videos are a riot, I wish I was discing when stokely was around here still)

There's an idea Blake. You could throw together a 30 minute video, showing good backhand, sidearm, putting forms. Add in some grip, follow through, aiming, and wind play instruction and slap a $14.95 price tag on it...

Afterthought: Don't forget the nekked hot chicks with discs covering stragetic areas!

videos are in the works.

i'm bringing in all outside players to do the throwing as they can perform it at a much higher level than i can.

is this the same video set that the avery j clip is from? because that looked like it had potential to be a good instructional/informational video.
