How many shots will be thrown on disc golf courses in 2014?

My guess is 4 billion. Yes, billion.

Do the math yourself -- # of courses, # rounds per day x 365, # of shots per round -- and see what you get.

It's up to China Peak. They are quite capable event organizers -- bike races, mud runs, etc. My guess is that they'll run things logistically and find an experienced TD from the local area conduct...

downhill = greater risk within same reachability

IMBO (biased), that's a main reason why China Peak is so great. the penalties of a downhill spray are just as severe as a narrow fairway on a flat hole -- but way more fun to play and watch.
