Default shout out to the local pros

I just wanted to give a shot out and thanks to all of the "local" pros around the world helping people out. I have learned so much in the past 6 months just being in Dexter, OR that it is crazy. People are fun and caring and generally want to help you. They aren't on any kind of power trip/im better kinda thing either.
So if you have some local's you want to thank, then do it

That's exactly how I got "hooked" on the sport myself, I had a guy, Brent, who saw me playing with a wham-o, and showed me about true golf discs. I had bought one, then another. He gave me advice during casual rounds, taught me a forehand throw, gave me advice on discs, different lines on holes, shot selection....basically everything. I still try and "pay it forward" myself, and have done a lot of the same thing for players at my home course. I've even given away countless discs to those who did not have much, trying to get them "hooked" as well.
