Yes! I love this rule. I need to teach the park walkers if they see a disc to put it in the basket. My first ace might not be that far off

Totally aware that that's ridiculous but also not aware he already has the form to be throwing his mid better and straighter in most situations.
In just about every sport, ego and false confidence is the biggest hurdle to overcome.

Started around ten years ago, was going with friends to Richmond Hill in Asheville, NC a very wooded course. "That disc looks cool" as I pick out a DX Firebird as my only disc to take there, not the greatest first round ever.

If noobs ask questions about ettitque or whatever I think it's a good thing. If people are stubborn.....noob or not you are close minded

Couldn't agree more! I love it when people ask me about anything on the course. Especially if they are as nerdy about plastic circles as I am! I'm still a relative greenhorn out there, but the fine folks here have given me a heck of an education over the years.

I also love it when the veterans out there kindly offer up advice to guys like me. A simple "hey, you seem to be dropping your arm low causing some unintentional hyzer" tip during a circuit event once really helped my game. Shot a personal course record the 2nd round. Can't remember that dude's name now, but super class act guy. Awesome player, too.

Less than 3 years in I consider myself still kinda new. The first half year was literally throwing bosses because it had high speed haha. Then I kept hearing about tags. I kept thinking "wtf is a tag!?). I finally got one and honestly the local pro players at the course I play usually were more than helpful. Some now even became buddies of mine.

New players are a good thing if they want to actually learn a little bit about the sport.

A "stable" disc is a disc that flies straight!

I hear two things from beginners on a daily basis.

" how far can you throw" and "wow what many disc you have"

Haha, "second language" definitely, most Swedes speak English way better than me.

But if you want it in Swedish " Wow, vad mεnga discar du har"
