I say kill the pond idea. If the idea is to get families and new players out there, and pond might discourage them from playing if they start loosing discs. Some newbies don't know that discs don't float.
I had a newbie yesterday that was standing to the left of a very small pond, maybe 15ft X 10ft and he shanked it right into the water. Couldn't see the bottom is was so murky, but I got to try out my Golden Retriever for the first time, and on the 6th time I threw it in, I hooked it.
A quote from :
Spookyspence-ACE - make your disc into basket on your first throw from the tee!
Cubby Ace - GETTING THE PERSIAN ARMY to blacken the sky with you discs and hoping one of them hits.
If any one asks if you have a ace only respond with yes if you have a real one unless you specify cubby or black.
