I'd be a fan of the Brodster if every other tweet from him wasn't bitching about either how he played or something to do with disc golf...He's pretty whiney.

Act as a liaison and representative to your local parks departments
Donate to charity
Provide opportunity for competition, for both experience and beginning players
Police parks. There are a lot of examples of course going into bad parks with lots of problems and helping to detour nefarious activity, simply by an increase in use of the park.
Revenue for park systems that is often plied to other areas of the park, for more than just the disc golf community.

Honestly, I could probably go on for a while.
My bad, when you said "Disc golf brings a whole host of positive changes for people in your community" I thought you meant the community at large, not just the disc golf community.

If Brodie can cause more courses to be built I'd count that as a win.

The disc golf community is part of the community at large and I think most of the list provided gives back to more than just the disc golf community.

Providing for recreational coping mechanism, for individuals and families, is a positive social endeavor.

Did you read his whole post or just skim over it? He gave numerous examples of how it can benefit the whole community.

Anyone know how a puddle top Zone compares to the usual flat ones?



My puddle tops have just been Zones with less glide. They sort of get sucked out of the air. Probably just a hair more stable overall than a flat top.

Definitely comes across a bit whiney. His Twitter rants aren't going to get anything changed anytime soon. His Twitter account seems to be alot more personal, where as his Youtube channel is more general friendly.

I guess I have a question on that...

Say you walk up to the tee of a 442 foot par 3. You see 9 players in the fairway from 150 to 250 feet out.

Are you yelling asking to play thru and then trying to throw over the top of 9 people that are staring at the sun and likely can't track a disc?

I'm not. So catching them at the next tee definitely impacts my experience. Especially this time of the year where I need an absolutely perfect round (no crowds, no hard to find discs, no long waits for walkers, no asking people to move, etc) to get done before it gets too dark.

Groups of 6-8 are too large for a single card. even 5 is often pushing it
