So, there's nothing open around here to ski. It's dumping in Utah but sunny and warm here. What better things are there to do? How about some disc golf?

I started playing disc golf last summer. I didn't really think it would be much fun, as I'm not a golfer. Boy was I wrong! This game is a blast. It makes for a great time, while spending time outside in some beautiful areas and even getting in some exercise (not to mention the occasional poison ivy). None of my friends or I take it very seriously, we just play with a driver and no other discs. We always keep score, and I almost always win!! (They hate me..)

If you haven't played disc golf before, I'd highly recommend that you find a nearby course and give it a shot. Just be ready to have a sore throwing arm the next day!! smile smile

Here are some shots of my friends and I from this past weekend.

Putting


Driving uphill


I didn't hit a single tree on this hole. Believe that? (That isn't me)


Nice drive


My weapon of choice. "The Wraith"


I'm getting ready to go DEEP


After the launch


That shot landed like this


Look at the form


I WIN!

I just started a few weeks ago. There are two courses down the road from work and about 6 of us have been going during lunch. Just a way to get out of the office, but it sure is a lot of fun!

David,

I've played before. Lots of fun, but didn't you buy a mtn. bike? Need to start spinning. Frisbee golf won't do much for your skiing.

Where have you been riding? Know of any place good to ride around Morgantown? Maybe we can meet up for a ride.

Cooper's Rock has some good riding. It is about 15 mins outside of Motown on I68. There is also some really (so I hear) good riding at Big Bear Lake in Preston County, not too far off 68. Probably 30 mins from Motown.

Well, I left my pop bottle specks at home. I opted for the 1/4" contacts that day. Looked more professional!
