Ahhh it's a love story.

Dig it.
Damn, I'd heard legends of a smart Okie, but I never thought I'd meet him.

I would purchase the DVD in a heartbeat, but it appears only to be available in European format, and from Amazon.de.
Anyone know differently?

We screened the film in Santa Cruz at the FPA world championships. It is a bit freestyle-heavy, but all the disc sports are featured. I give it

This is a fun week. Chipper Bro is a Ventura guy. We have the movie on Thursday and then he puts on the Aloha Beach Festival this weekend. Good times.

Story Time!

I am a lover of people more than things, I enjoy all of the hobbies and interests that others share with me. I enjoy social games that provide me with some type of challenge more than others...but nothing felt truly personally identifying.

I used to play a lot of catch with an Ultimate disc in the parking lot of work during down times (we worked overnights and in the middle of the night you have a few hours of literally nothing to do when customers weren't around) and that was a lot of fun, I got pretty good at throwing, but it was just a time waster with coworkers.

Then I found disc golf. The first time I played we only managed to get through 13 holes at MCC before the darkness set in and members of our party were being attacked by wasps from a nest under the hole 13 basket (hole 1 these day FYI). On my way home, a drive I'm very familiar with, I missed two different turns because I was so excited I simply could not concentrate.

My addiction hit hard and immediately. It's the only hobby I've ever wanted to invest my life in.

I quickly became involved in all the forums, learning as much as I could and of course buying ALL THE PLASTIC (and baskets, and bags, and towels, and minis, and a 400' measuring tape, and cones...)

I made the subject of my senior project Installing Disc Golf Courses On Municipal Properties: How to get your parks and rec department to put in a course for you. (long story there, but there is now a course going in as a result of my interviews with my town parks and rec department 4 years ago!)

I have taken short breaks, I've taken time to heal after injuries, I've been too busy to play at times...but disc golf is in my soul.

I cannot imagine my life entirely separated from Disc Golf, from "Throwing Plastic Circles" as my friend Steve put it yesterday.

I will play in a parking lot, back yard, or a professional course. I'll putt on a mini basket in your living room.

I'll play catch with your kids.

I absolutely love a flying disc, and I never feel exactly the same type of joy as I feel when I'm throwing with some friends and family.

The invisible string binds us all, with love, respect, and shared sacrifice. Together we are strong.

I thought that line was dope as ****. I'm addicted to chucking and watching my drivers sail....

Quantum mechanics describes this state as "entangled". Once you have a taste, you want MORE...

Looks like a fun movie!

The trailer was good fun for sure, even with the mumbo-jumbo.

The crowds at the Rose Bowl were insane. The GUTS footage looked tough (I've only heard a little about the game). The skip shots on water were nice - I'm not that brave.
