I always look forward to it. I enjoy the history articles the most. Last months about the history of the disc basket was my favorite article to date.

i really like your idea. you should suggest it to them.

"in the bag" stories would also be cool.

The magazine is comprised of amateur writers who, in many cases, don't know the first thing about journalism. There's a lot more to putting out a good magazine than just putting words on paper.
Nobody talks to the dutchess that way...NOBODY!

I enjoy reading it when it comes out. Yeah the results are old, but the commentaries are from an angle i maybe haven't heard yet.

i don't understand how people complain so much about EVERYTHING. It's somethings else to read about disc golf.

Though, The USDGC mess up was VERY confusing for a few minutes as I was like..."These sentences don't add up....where is Ricky's Field Ace.....oh these pages are backwards"

I second an "In the Bag" section being added. Each issue take 4-5 folks and walk through their bags. Have weights, and quantities of each disc. That'd be really cool. Yeah we have the videos, but they are normally "Well, I have a bunch of desroyers, 4-5 rocs, etc" not all that specific. Would be cool to have written form of the Main shot they have each disc for.

Avery Jenkins in the bag

Nate Doss in the bag

You can see all of team Discraft laying out their bags on the Discraft website as well. Innova lists their team member's bags, but not to the same level of detail.

I think the magazine is awesome. As a touring player, it gives you a print out of all the awesome tournaments around the United States. It also informs me on projects and people I knew little to nothing about. The color and quality of the magazine are exceptional, as well.

That is all. Carry on.
When I was new, I thought it was great, too. Then after a few issues I realized how bad it was. This issue I thought was a bit better, though. The interview with JK was very good.

One thing they need to work on is encouraging folks to submit articles. I submitted an article and was told some areas of the article needed to be changed to be more online with how things really worked. My article was written on reality. I'm a TD, I sell advertising for a living and do pretty well on raising sponsor dollars for tournaments and selling courses. But apparently it isn't how 'the powers the be' would do it so my article was turned down.

I still enjoy the publication but I do wonder how many others would be contributors are turned away. Just because some on is a publisher doesnt make them an expert on all things Disc Golf.

I enjoy the magazine in general, but can't stand some of the graphics behind the words in the articles. The story with Harold Duvall in this issue is almost unreadable, and I have good eyesight.
