Helped run an Ace Race at my home course. Of the twenty two people, half were under 18. A 17 year old won it. 'Twas an amazing day.

Gave away discs to 4 people, all of whom seem to have a genuine interest in learning/continuing to play

Took a solid 10-15 people out for their first round. A few seem to be sticking with it, most are not.

Getting my 2 yr old started throwing a mini and my son was born. They'll both be future champs within 20 years.

Got several new people to throw and use MVP discs.

Seriously though, I did help out on course construction and maintenance at a couple local courses. Tried unsuccessfully to get some new people interested in the sport. Well one maybe starting to catch the bug.

A great way to get people engaged in the game is to give them the tools to do it. I gave away four or five DX Rocs this summer to people who showed up to either watch or play our Monday night doubles. Haven't seen most of them out recently, but one girl I gave a purple Roc to works at the local gas station and makes some bomb ass hot dogs. Seen her out a few times and every time I got in there for a dog she tells me how she's been shooting. Seems really motivated to improve too, so I call that a win. Gonna try to do even better next year. Just gotta replenish my stock of DX Rocs.
