I learned that I need to learn a sidearm for more than just emergency recovery shots. Other than that, just keeping my head up after a bad throw/putt, and throwing more consistently across my whole bag. But the Sidearm is by far the biggest thing i took away from this tourney needing to learn.

payout

I was told we would get an email from discgolfu.com. Those cashing will receive credit in the form of "points"--i think. You can order what you want from dgu and it will be shipped to you. If I remember correctly from last year 1 point =.01 cents.

I wish that I had shot better as the miserable rounds carried over to after round activities for me. On the whole, I averaged 51 points below my rating for the weekend throwing 3 of my 6 lowest rounds in 2.5 years of playing. The worst part was that I had nothing to blame but me.

It absolutely sucked being the last card and someone didn't show up, so we were following the 5-some lead card who was taking forever while our 3-some last card waited on every hole. I had a literal 10 minute wait on every single hole of every single round. I think that ended up getting to me.

Overall though, the tournament was very smoothly run and would have thoroughly enjoyed myself if I shot better.

Had a great time this year (my first year) at the BG Ams. Met some really cool people and shot some decent rounds (except my first round which was terrible). A big thanks to Justin, Noah, Aaron, Darrell, Thomas, and all the other guys whose names I forget, for being such great cardmates. Hopefully I'll be able to make it next year for more good times.

I learned to NOT throw into the Cedars at Keriakas! Had 5 different shots get under those things and it's almost impossible to get back out from under some of them.

If anyone picked up my 175g Yellow Star Gator with Green Stamp, and "Powers" on the inside rim, from the water on hole 3 at Phil Moore Saturday afternoon, I'd appreciate getting it back. Went back right after my round with my retriever, and it was already gone.

HB - any updates on who won the Hobson performance challenge rounds? I know there was a lockup at -1 in 3rd place after Wednesday, but did anyone best that on Thursday with the rain? If not, how were the ties decided?

The highlight of my weekend is not remembering that night very well.
