There are several new courses in the gorge. Some pretty good old ones as well. Also, if you're there for 11 days, there's some of the Portland courses. Here's some ideas:

There are leagues pretty much every night of the week.

Mondays is Lunchtime handicapped singles. Not an amazing course, but it's a good warm up for the rest of the week.

Tuesdays is Timber...

Uh, not quite the same at all. I think there were three discs in common. This is the wife, who weighed the discs. It was great that DD seemed to figure out that nodosaurus was looking for...

A wife here. You don't say how old your kids are. I don't know if your wife might be concerned that the kids could outdo her. I knew someone who started playing when the kids were young. When her...

Sounds very similar to the problems I've been having. Everyone told me to go with lighter discs, and I finally got advice that helped -- to go with heavier discs. I'm now throwing around 170g...

My husband started playing when he was over 50, and we played almost every day the first summer and fall. He's found that he has more problems if he doesn't play regularly. Knee pain can be a...

It's great to do lessons, but there are a few things to think about. First of all, I'd look for recommendations. Some people might be great golfers, but that doesn't necessarily mean they make...

I also have a question on snap. I've been working on the hammer pounds and things, since I know I have almost no spin on my disc. I can sort of get it to work, but whenever it "works", my disc goes...

I suspect there are a lot more women around here lurking than people might think. There's a lot of opportunities to learn, but you do have to have a thicker skin, and not let "locker room talk"...

Premium plastic tends to be more overstable and has less glide. No use handicapping yourself that early.

No, they actually don't turn much. They still fade left, but it's about the closest to straight I'm able to throw.

I looked up the stats again on the diamond, and it looks like I remembered the...

Actually, I'm a "she", which is part of why I'm interested in a diamond. I need about a 170g because I have a terrible problem with off axis torque, and the heavier discs aren't affected as badly. ...

I'll go ahead and weigh in. This was Randy's first PDGA event, and he had a great time. What more can you ask for -- challenging golf, good company, and the nicest weather in eight months?

So, has anyone heard when max weight diamonds might be available? Who would be the first to carry them? I've got a 170 gripline vision, and I'm suspicious that I'm not getting distance because it's...

I've gone back and tried 150s again, and even though they aren't much less distance, they are less, and with 100 ft throws, every foot counts. I'll admit that it's not necessarily a fair comparison,...

4 months ago, I would have agreed on the 150s. However, since then, I've found that I do better with about a 170 disc, in a beat dx understable mold. They're certainly not pretty discs, but they...
