I skip aced hole 16 at Youth Park in St. Petersburg, 240 feet, was with RussMB. Threw a low hyzer to the right around all the trees and the crazy gusty wind that was throwing our discs all over the course today took my skip and slammed my boss into the chains. What a crazy day...discs were doing all sorts of ridiculous things like hitting an early tree and tumbling/rolling around to the pin, skips that went the wrong direction as the wind threw the disc the other way, etc.

Today was the day I finally joined the Ace club. After so many close calls and bounce outs, I got an ace that completely suprised me. I was playing at Paseo vista in Chandler(its on a former dump, the whole course is elevated above the rest of the valley floor about 100-200 feet or so). It was a really windy day with the wind around 20 mph or so. The ace was on hole 14, with a vicious right to left crosswind. I decided to throw my TI wasp on an Anny line. I heard chains. From the box, you can only see the top part of the basket and a bit of the chains. When I heard chains, I wasn't too excited because I have hit chains waaay too many times. I ran up to where I could see it, and sure enough the disc was in the basket. That was awesome.

Thanks. I lost count of all the times I hit chains, basket, and even gone into the basket but popped out. I've come to the conclusion that there is a certain amount of luck so the disc actually goes in and sticks.

I'd be happy with just getting 1 a year. Sure it takes some skill, but you are right...there is a lot of luck involved! I have a friend that's played for some time now and he's on a 2 year Ace Drought!

2/1 The Blockhouse Tiki #10 68'
Over the Grill/Patio to the 12' high elevated basket.

I'll let you all decide on the relevance of this being an ace or not.
