Just had a baby and my in-laws are in town, so I won't be out there. There are always plenty of people out there on the weekends though. Try and pick up with a group that knows its way around since...

I do that when it's windy. I'm waiting for a lull.

Normally, I just walk up and toss but if it's really windy I'll stand motionless and wait for it to pass.

You should definitely talk to Houck. That sounds like a similar area to where his ranch is/was. I know that I drove out there from Austin a couple of times to play while I lived in Austin and that...

If the course is nice enough, a fee probably wouldn't be an issue. Pay to play models have worked well in other places including most of the ski slope courses. I'm not sure if they would recoup the...

Is there a specific email address or person that I should write to? Writing a note seems like an easy thing to do and I know they can make a difference if you get enough in front of the right people.

It's probably worth pointing out that the APX and the Titanic are the same disc.

Apart from that, I use challengers and Putt'rs. Love them both. Used to use challengers exclusively but found I...

That's your problem right there. The number isn't supposed to tell you speed/distance. The classification and rim width tell you that. The number tells you stability which basically correlates to...

Don't put all your drivers away because throwing putters and mids won't really help you fix your nose-up issues which are probably the culprit for your lack of driver distance. Concentrate on...

I usually carry 1 that I use mostly for skip shots and spike hyzers. Every now and then I'll run up against a headwind where I think it might be useful but that's extremely rare. The disc I use for...

There are occasionally payouts for winning teams at tournaments, but more often than not it's a goofy trophy or bragging rights (usually bragging rights). Playing the game is its own reward.

I also carry both fwiw. You might be able to cover more of the os - us spectrum with a wasp or roc but you cover a wider range of speeds with the buzz pairing. It's all about personal preference.

Was the 360 big enough? That other fellow seemed to think it needed to fit 370s to be large enough? That's a great looking option for $30 if it works.
