Even though I was only at BG as a caddy I once again got to meet some cool people and was, as always, very impressed by how smoothly HB had things running. The amount of rain that was dumped on BG on Thursday and the problems it caused would have sent any other TD into a meltdown.

He was also kind enough to let me shoot a short video of him talking about how he gets such distance, I hope to have that out later this week.
I'll second how cool GG was. I spoke to him quite a bit at different places over the day he was there. He helped me pick up a few discs and they really were throwing well for me. shot my 2 best rounds (still fairly crappy) of the tourney after that.

I enjoyed myself overall. Still pissed about the round at PM due to a freaking deep "Creek" on hole 3 that wasn't OB, but was freaking massive amount of water being played as casual I heard afterward. My whole group played it as OB (not even a question arose that it could be anything but OB it was such deep water, 2 of us took penalties) got a circle 5 due to that. Threw a provisional on another whole due to not knowing what OB's were removed due to the high water changes. I think that could have been brought up in a players meeting since changes were made. I liked no players meetings for the normal courses, but i think a players meeting were need for the courses with changes due to water. Still quite unhappy at those 2 extra shots including OB penalty, that shouldn't have counted.

HB seemed like a real nice guy. He was on course at Hobson Thurs and Friday when my rounds started, so I got to talk to him quite a bit. That was kind of cool.

Played with quite a few nice folks, Had fun at the distance comp. GG and Greenwell were super nice to talk to as well. Spent too much money on new discs, but had a good time overall.

What did everyone learn from this weekend? I learned that you should pack salt and pepper when making eggs for breakfast, I need to learn my roc's more, learn to throw Flippy plastic, and to not 3 putt.

So is Paul a kid or something? I really can't believe a 990 player is playing AM. I guess if he is still in high school it makes sense but he was 990 last year and still playing AM. Don't know the guy not trying to be a dick but just can't wrap my head around being that good and not wanting to play for cash.

Not a kid. He was debating moving up to open after worlds last year but kind of lost interest in the game. He picked up other hobbies and hasn't really played much since worlds. He's kinda getting back into it now, this was his first tournament since last summer, but he's not as driven as he was before. He wants to just keep playing for fun but he doesn't spend as much time practicing anymore since he's busy with other things in life now.
