In other news, I played a round last night on our last nice day until next week. I just didn't putt at anything inside the circle - I counted 83% as makes (since it's what I do normally inside the circle) and called it a day. Only had to disinfect my putters twice during the round thanks to a couple of 40 foot jump putts that I cashed. I disinfected all discs upon returning home.

This is irresponsible and misinformative. If you are going to attempt to justify your selfish and uneducated opinion, please provide sources for your support.


If I seem testy on this subject, good.....my feelings are coming across well. I am watching my peers and friends drown in my hospital system. Staff is working their asses off. Working in rain, wind, cold, outside testing in drive through operations. I am watching these people work 12 and 16 hours shifts. I am watching the system put 300 people a day into the hospital. It is a day or two away from no vacancy. I am watching these people get sick and bring it home to their families, because they have no option. I AM NOT ADVOCATING PANIC.....just give a **** about others, educate yourself and try to do the right thing. The sacrifice is reallyvery small and the payoff is really large.

Sorry jolt. The above is really a PSA, though you brought it on.

I guess something to keep in mind when you're reading my suggestions and thoughts about CV, is that I'm not so much worried about my self getting infected in general, its that I live with a 72yr old women with a myriad of health problems. I'm going about my daily life with that in mind so that I am not the one who gets her infected... though being an overweight, 25yr pack and a half a day smoker probly puts me in the high risk pool also...

I΄m not going to bite but i would like to know what is "selfish and uneducated" about what i said?

You dont "insta die" if you get Corona
+70y is the high risk group is it not?
I have to go to work
Playing Discgolf by my self in the wood far away from everyone. . .that has to be a "low risk" thing to do?
I will go down after work and buy food and help the small resturants . . and i will take the food home and eat alone

Here in Norway the average age of COVID deaths is 89 years. I wouldn't worry too much about this virus unless you're old or you have a serious precondition

I don't really plan on going out and doing much of anything beyond going to work(while I still can before I'm laid off or have my hours cut way back), getting supplies from time to time, and just trying to stay away from other people in general. Staying away from people is pretty easy. As an introvert it feels like I've been training for these times all my life.

I do have a portable travel basket I use to putt at home so I will probably be able to feed my disc golf itch with that in the yard. I do live half a block from a city park that has nice wide open green spaces so I can always carry my basket down there and set it up if I want to do some longer throws too. Obviously I would only do that when others are not down at the park so I can do social distancing still. Park is never really busy but with people being stuck at home I could see others going to it just to get out of the house in a space that allows you to easily keep 6 or more feet apart.

If everyone would just do whats being asked, we could probably return to much more normal things sooner instead of having to take the much more extreme measures we are seeing take place.
