You have your wish. Eclipse is August, Hawk September and Wildcat Oct. See page 3

Anyone see the stamp for this month's Ace Race? I hope it's a throwback to the original stamp. I dig this style of digital, 80's video game, synthwave art:

I will snap one at lunch as we just completed an Ace Race this weekend. Kind of a slow disc with good glide, not as OS as I imagined it would be, some reliable fade at the end. Seemed to work best with some power on it to hold the line but led to some spit/splash outs on shortened holes.

The event you attended was a flop, or the decision to do throwback discs for their 40th anniversary?

The discs they chose for their throwback......... from what i've read here and and from veteran Discraft throwers, they could've chosen so much better ones.

I'm paid into an ace race this Saturday and i'm REALLY bummed i get to use a meathook driver for ace runs.

Would be nice to the see the XL make a comeback, surprised they let this one fall through the cracks since it was a distance record holder at one point and friendly to all skill levels.
