But, it really seems to me that ESPN3's archival...

Cool of them to make a set. But, they're not going to be _that_ light, right? 150+ g for the Pearl and Ruby, and 140+ g for the Diamond? Not so much different, at least in weight, than an Innova DX...

Rogers Lakewood, Valparaiso, 13th annual is coming up. Not so old, but going strong. Usually below freezing. Sometimes with snow - usually at least a bit of ice. So far we've been light on snow...

I'll mention it in course conditions too, but I don't suppose i'd allow it to push the course all the way to unplayable. I'd reserve that for something like gate locked, police action, etc.

One hole in Livermore, CA, maybe it's the last, has a big bush/thicket as the main fairway obstacle. For at least several days, while I was in town, there was a camp inside of it. I never saw the...

Our local town parks have an official curfew of 10 PM, which isn't very well publicized.

Interesting to see the second peak in the distribution in the 30's.

I saw baskets in Adler Park, Libertyvillle, IL in the late 80's or early 90's, but never played.

For me they're personal mementos. My first was Barsby, when I just stumbled upon him running a clinic at a local course. Almost a random disc (in fact, one of my go-to understable discs), as a...

Basing it on the performance of the division, instead of on something a skosh more objective like a round rating, seems additionally wrong-headed.

All of this might be easier to analyze with rated...

The trouble is, I suppose, that's it hard to be objective about what qualifies as a "better" alternative. And probably particularly hard when you're the one in the playoff, or when the playoff...
