This was my hope in buying the Saint. I have a 175g Star Teebird that I hope to use more as a power driver in wind or when I want something more stable. I bought the Saint in 170g to use in pretty much all other conditions.

Sounds like a plan...and a good one.

the 16th is on the Sabbath. I don't work on the Sabbath. I do play dg on the Sabbath. do I need to go to confession?

at this new course is there room for me to slam some scandanavian plastic?

It is going to be about a par 66 course with long wooded holes and well defined fairways. There is more room than many NC courses, but there are going to be plenty of opportunities for you to slam your Scandanavian plastic into living wood.

I think I might curl up into a fetal position and cry when I move to NC next Fall. The courses there are going to make my local experience look like I was practicing putting in my backyard.

Naw, you'll be fine. We'll break you in slowly. The wooded holes at Clay aren't much different than some of ours. You just need to hit your lines, and throw mids and putters a little more at some courses.

just don't start crying after your first rounds on the deer path courses we have, like some long throwing pros from out west.

Traveling with discs sounds like about the best experience available to humans.
