I witnessed several horrific Disc-Human incursions at Cold Brook Park's old layout (near Kalamazoo, MI, which existed up until the redesign for 2008 worlds). That place was a mess in those days. One guy had a bloodied head, another was hit in the abdomen at a tournament while waiting on a tee that was situated pretty close to where drives would go screaming by and I think he took a trip the the hospital for a checkup. A friend in my group was nailed on another infamous spot in a casual round.

The redesign of the course has made it much, much better. One of my favorites now.

Not yet. Have had many close calls in the year I've been playing. My worst fear is getting whollupt in the ear with a drive

Ever heard of moving out of someone's throwing line?

I don't get hit when it's his 1st disc thrown.......but then he throws however many more sometimes and it's right when I'm going to go make my toss. Aside from that he dicks around too sometimes and that doesn't end well for me. I never stand in the way of someone's line (at least for their first and initial shot..which should have been his only line thrown). Trust me, I'm not that dumb

I've been hit a few times, worst was full tilt wild throw from a friend (not a player thankfully) in the side of the head with a champ wraith. I am glad he doesn't have much power. Recently hit by a girl learning to throw, slipped out of her hand and all I saw was a flash of blue before I got whalloped in the chest. not even sure what the disc was, but she did get it off fairly flat. I usually get hit during glow rounds since thats just a fun free-for-all with the people I play with.

Me and 20 others were yelling fore, no response. Sorry dude. Disc was Blizzard Boss.

A few close calls: There's a guy who plays in Nashville at 7oaks all the time named steve. Nice guy. Unless you throw in on him while he's playing. I was in his group when a disc came from the teepad (on our hole) and landed about 10 feet behind him. He picks up the disc and throws it across the adjacent street into some woods, which for some reason mystified the thrower. Now we've got player on teepad running towards steve, angry about his disc being thrown o.b.(possibly for good). Steve sees the guy running at him and takes off running so as to speed up their imminent confrontation. Needless to say, a few of us stepped in to corral him and prevent the pummeling of captain clueless, but it made for an exciting few moments on the course, and after that I always felt safe playing in his group. There is a fenced in playground behind the teepad on hole 1 at seymour lake, oxford michigan. Mike W. was practicing some rollers and throwing them towards the #1 teepad when this little girl runs out of the fenced in area, directly into the path of his throw/roller. The disc is coming down to begin its roll from 250' out (this guy is a CRusher), it hits the ground, bounces, and jumps over the little girl like she had an invisible shield. We couldn't believe it. O.K. acual contact: (proving that I'm in the right thread afterall lol) 2 months ago at johnny roberts I saw a guy teeoff on hole 3 and it was a big nose up newbie hyzer flying out into the fairway for 17. Thrower says nothing but I start yelling fore because I see trouble on the way. Sure enough dude on 17 takes it right to the chest, never sees it coming. I look over to the kid on the teepad and explain that you have to warn people if you think its coming close to them. He shrugs his shoulders like I'm speaking mandarin, and this chick in his group (think former groupie for Motley Crue) that hes playing with says "well you said fore so thats good enough" I shiat you not. No concern for the dude who got hit at all. Turns out he was OK, but it looked painful. I should really stop now in case this is somehow fueling the disc vs. flesh phenomena. Non-linear, life on mars, crazy world that it is....

Got hit right in the face. Right where your lips and cheek meet. Had just played 17 and was walking back toward 18 teepad. Was about 160'-180' from 17 tee pad, way off to the right and that's when it happened. Luckily the guy didn't have the arm strength to do any damage. Walked away with soreness only. Got really lucky it didn't hit me in the eye.
