I am working on getting a course installed and spreading the enjoyment of this game to people who have never seen a disc / Frisbee. Things take time here. Trying to explain the sport is more difficult than I would have ever imagined. On the plus side though, I am close to Europe and get to play some courses when I travel that I would not have ever had the chance to do.

Being in the SOLO mindset, I have tried to focus on some aspects of the game that can help me in the long run. My driving form and putting practice.

Solo or not. When I get some plastic in the air and it starts to ride the wind, I get a great feeling out of it. It's still enjoyable.

I play alone now for the most part. I don't mind it.. Big groups slow you down.. Especially when you have a busy life.
