What I think of some disc golf rules and other ideas:

-Mandos: I like mandos for the most part. Now there are some mandos where I'm like "Come on, that's ridiculous!" But that's only if they aren't wide enough, too far from the pad (Not in favor of #11 at Catawba Meadows.), and if they strongly increase the chance of lost disc potential. But most aren't like that, so that to me is an extra challenge but I'm all for those.

Ropes: I think they are necessary in some occasions. I think if they are going directly to the basket from the tee-pad is a great idea. Some at the USDGC are a little goofy. I hate the idea of multiple islands being created and where you are OB if you aren't in one of the islands. As long as the rule is to take it from where it went out, it's all good to me.

-Island greens: Usually enjoy them. But there HAS to be a drop zone within 120'. It doesn't take a skilled to make the shot, but it certainly doesn't make a player suck when they have a hard time making it. "Re-tee until you make it" is just idiotic. That should be out of the question. Re-teeing doesn't increase the chances of you making it the second time, because that is independence. Learned that in AP Stats, and are currently going over it in MATH 270. Nothing is changing except for the player's mood. Now re-teeing and then going to a drop zone for 5 or maybe for 7 is a good idea as well. The player has GOT to move up eventually and go forward from the pad, because they actually threw the disc! Island greens are okay, but there has to be a drop zone. The short tee-pad is NOT a drop zone unless it's under 120'. People, let's not be stupid when we make island greens :)!

-Drop zones: Love them!

-The rating system: Love it too! I always thought that in games, there needs to be a high score. And the rating system offers that. Love how it's used too and how it all depends on how everyone else plays.

-PDGA rules: Some are respectable, and some are dumb. Especially how you are technically supposed to stroke someone for cursing because it's a courtesy violation. Learn to take frustration, otherwise quit playing in tournaments if it bugs you. Because stroking someone just for getting angry is a very lousy way to gain a stroke against someone. If that "distracts" a player, they shouldn't play sports. To any player that focuses too much on the rules, I feel so sorry for the players that have faced or will face the horror in playing with you.

-My favorite TD is Glen Lowman. Foothills Disc Golf Club is the greatest!

I also love rock music, I play the guitar, drums, and sing a little.
