Back to the subject I have never heard the term Gomer, my friends and I just call me scrubs...
I have noticed that too at highland. The gomers are multiplying... Generally they do hang out at shorewood which I try to avoid entirely. West park is getting really bad too. I find that its easier to avoid them when you go early in the morning.

Why is it that people just want to cry and get mad about certain things but then never do anything to change them? Understand that people play the game for different reasons and thats ok. The courses are in public parks, not your private property. Everybody has a right to be there, man up and do something about it. As long as you are pleasant than people will be receptive. I thought disc golf wasn't supposed to be elitist? jesus christ.....
I agree, nobody will say anything to anybody anymore

It's been pointed out in this thread already but...Just because you think the "chuckers" need help with their game doesn't mean they want help with their game.

When I first started playing I was already pretty good. Obviously my skills had to develop but because I am smarter than other people I was able to bypass all the normal "Chucker" tendencies. Now that I am even better I find it quite tedious tolerating all of the irritating weekend golfers.

In general, I only enjoy being around people who meet my standards. I would be all for requiring a written test and license for all disc golfers. Exceptions can be made for experienced players and newcomers that are pre-approved by people like me.

In my opinion, golfers who are not interested in donating league fees or tourney entries and simply want to play a game are little better than litterbugs, graffiti artists, and irresponsible dog owners.

Googan seems like an appropriate term. I think I'm going to start using that. Although, around New England, it's not a huge problem.
