The answer will depend on each person's financial circumstances, non-disc golf income, etc. So I am reluctant to advise because circumstances will differ for each person.

I will say this: A March 16 research article in Science Magazine (link below) examined early COVID-19 cases in China and found the following (emphasis added):

Quote:
We estimate 86% of all infections were undocumented (95% CI: [82%–90%]) prior to 23 January 2020 travel restrictions. Per person, the transmission rate of undocumented infections was 55% of documented infections ([46%–62%]), yet, due to their greater numbers, undocumented infections were the infection source for 79% of documented cases. These findings explain the rapid geographic spread of SARS-CoV2 and indicate containment of this virus will be particularly challenging.
Substantial undocumented infection facilitates the rapid dissemination of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV2)

It of course depends hugely on your situation but one option could be to go on a road trip to a remote campground with a group of healthy young DG pros, a few weeks of supplies and build yourself some fun courses, trick shots, practice and make youtube videos about the experience. There will be a lot of roaming eyes on youtube, use the time to build a following, and if you do it in a group you'll benefit from better quality, variety and ingenuity.

YOUTUBE CONTENT. There are enough ideas in this thread to fill a channel. This is the only way we will be able to see the Disc Golf Community.

If you want to interact with the Disc Golf Community post discussions here on DGCR - Great job Holly

Make a YT video showing people how to play disc golf while keeping a safe distance. Dos and don'ts of being near other players during these times. I haven't heard of anyone doing that right now and quite a few are asking how.

With so many events cancelling, it would be a hard call to make? Do you go and try to cash at anywhere you can find tournament, while risking your heath and spending the money to get there? Or do you lean on another avenue to try to make money while being safer and spending less?

It’s quite the conundrum. My gut reaction would be to buy supplies and go to somewhere that I could get by inexpensively and try to do something to make some money from home.

It would not likely be enough for full support, but hopefully a good supplement and a way to keep your mind occupied.

Play all small events?
Go home and get a side hustle?
Attend all leagues?
What are your ideas?

Just curious what your mindset is during this interesting time.

I am currently at home. All tournaments are halted for a minimum of 3-4 weeks.
I might catch up on my other obligations to the PDGA which can be performed from home at a keyboard.
