Default The Virginia scene

Just got back from a disc binge trip through Virginia Beach.

I was intrigued by the demographics on the disc courses.

There were multiple groups of old white guys at EVERY course. Sometimes big groups. These groups pretty much comprised the entire field.

I found this refreshing on a couple levels. First, 'cause I'm gettin' older and was assured we still have ground. Second, it was nice to see such a stark contrast from my local, youth driven scene.

All interactions were very polite. All groups either let me through or asked me to join.

Not sure this makes for a great thread, I just wanted to shout it out.

I am still mad that Buzz Williams left MU for VTech. I will feel better when they announce Ben Howland as the next MU coach.

That said, we have a good mix of both in MKE. It works out well as the older groups (by example) teach the younger groups proper etiquette.

The VA Beach / Bayville area is a VERY old community of golfers and it's one of the older courses in the country. Def. explains the demographics to a degree

Also, if you are thinking about putting wheels on your bag, you might be old.
