Squirrel attack

At Calvert Road Park, I walked up to find a squirrel spread-eagled on my disc gripping the rim with as many feet as it could. I practically had to pick up the disc before it ran off. My friends still tease about the attack of the disc-humping squirrel. We have also seen an albino squirrel at this same park.

Playing today, I saw a guy hit a bird in flight with a drive. The bird flew off, but must have been hurt.

Sleeping bikers on sleeping bags right in front of the teepad. Complete with a pistol strapped to his belt. Not 400' away was a little kids birthday party under a gazebo. Yikes.

Just yesterday, was out at the course and found lying behind a tree on #7 a bottle of Oxycotton.
Called the PD, to come and grab it, cause who knows if it was planted there for a drug deal, dropped by accident, or the little kid two holes back would pick it up and eat one.

I watched a guy come out of the pond that my local course plays around/over with about 20 discs, he then sets up a towel and starts selling them for 5 a pop! Pretty weird for me to see.

The first time I read this I thought of the DB's that ride around here in spandex and helmets on their mountain or road bicycles. Which made the story funny and more than a little queer.
I'm guessing you meant motorcyclists. Then I noticed you are from AZ, which makes me think it might be a common thing. Bikers with exposed guns. Not knocking either, here in Colorado we are also an exposed carry state, not much room on course for either, although at HP yesterday I did hear a shot from the affluent neighborhood on the hill.

That is weird.

Most divers go with three a pop on cheap discs and five only for top of the line.

What did cyclists ever do to you? DB's? Queer? Really? It's a sport just like disc golf, and one that is actually fairly comparable in terms of people who do it. At least pretend to have a little bit of respect for people with different hobbies than you.

queer part: Two bicyclists in the park on a sleeping bag

don't make me stand on my soapbox! I'm all for them, but unless you are Lance Armstrong and trying to shave a second off your time there is no reason for a grown man to wear full body spandex, it looks "gay". Also I'm all for sharing the road as long as they follow the same rules I have to and they can go the same speed, and if they paid a tax to maintain those same roads, they don't. I have respect for them, I have crazy respect for the ones that do single track downhill. I can't do it, I got no desire to be on something with 2 wheels and no motor.
Just my feelings, and No I don't have to pretend to do anything, I'm not Politically Correct, I got no desire to pretend to like some douchebag culture that seems to think they are superior to everyone just because they can use a mode of transportation that was obsolete as soon as man created a motor.
If it's just a hobby great! but to some it's a lifestyle and unfortunately their "hobby" directly affects me at times.
It's not comparable, if it was they would be regulated to some part of a park and not all the streets/trails/wherever the hell they want to be. They also seem to have most of their people in very good shape, something I see lacking at a lot of DG courses. We have a sport where mostly normal people, fat, thin, smokers, drinkers can go out and enjoy a day in the park. Basically anyone can play our sport.
