Default Nova P's 4-year DG anniversary video thread

Four years ago yesterday (April 7th 2015) I played my very first round ever with an Innova Starter pack at MWSU. I just went out and re-played that same course with the same discs. (The same Leopard, anyway. I lost the Aviar and Shark, so I got some used ones at the DD shop in KC. . .)

Because I'm a nerd, I kept score the very first time I played, and I still have the scorecard, so I was able to compare my performance then on day 1 with my performance now on day 1,471.

Check it out!

Just wanted to commend you on the Gender Policy thread debate. You're a badass in my book. I was also encouraged by the % of people (dudes) who have progressive (evidence-based) views on this subject. The culturally-infused toxic masculinity is still present, but it's slowly subsiding in favor of more enlightened viewpoints.

I also think it's absolutely ludicrous that the mods closed that thread. Shutting down discussion of a sensitive topic isn't going to make the ensuing discussions any easier. Huge bogey on DGCR's part.

Noooo, you'll get this thread locked too!

Thanks much, I appreciate the kind words. Like you, I too was glad to see a lot more people coming out on the side of progress than I had feared.

I am no telepath, but I suspect the thread may just be on a cool-down. The posts were coming fast and heated. Dunno.

Some sweet lines with the Shark! Reminds me of the first 3 discs my brother gave me when he introduced me to the game (I was age 36, btw)... Shark, Stingray, and Omega SS. My Shark served me well for a long time.

I agree with Jamie, this place can be a tough one to handle. And it can be hard to distinguish between flat out rudeness and bias. Thanks for being here and adding a different voice and perspective.

Nice concept. I like it. I can't remember the first course I played, let alone the discs or the score.

Cool idea. I wish I had kept track of all my scores when I started. I remember my first course, but that's about it.

The thread is open again! OK no more derailing, cool video concept. I went back to get "revenge" on my first foe (course) in NC a handful of years later on a visit, it's a crazy feeling to remember the lines you used to be limited to, and what you can do after a few years of the obsession.
