  • Traveling with discs

    So it looks like I am going to be making a couple trips down to Cali in November and December. I'm hoping to play somewhere in the Sacramento area, and am definitely going to drag my dad out for a round at Morley Field in San Diego.

    What I need to find out is whether or not discs can be carried on to the plane, or if it's better to pack them instead. I would hate to show up and have them tell me I can't take my plastic on the plane. I'd probably just cancel my trip instead of giving up my plastic.

    Amyways, please let me know your advice on this and if anyone knows of a course in the Sacramento area that would be bonus info.

    Totally fine. I always carry mine on, and usually they want to open up my bag to find out wtf they're seeing on the x-ray, but then pass me on through. Just make sure you have your bag cleaned out of anything you might not want them to find....

      Supposedly different blends of plastic can look like various weird things to their X-rayish machines, so yeah, don't be surprised if they want to root around in your bag or swab it for the Spectromatic-Explosive-o-Meter.

      But in the end, they won't stop you from carrying the discs on the plane.

        When you take your Dad out to Morley, do it VERY early in the day AND do it during the week NOT on a weekend. That way you will not have to battle the HUGE groups that take forever AND are do not have the best manners...

        In the Sac area you will want to play Orangevale(Shady Oaks Park) on Hazel.
        Call Final 9 Sports at 916-987-DISC - This is the "Pro Shop" at the course run by Jim Oates, Bruce & Jenny Knisley. They can give you directions AND info on other courses to play (Rocklin, Auburn, Del Campo, "Little Africa")

          just to be safe I always bring a disc golf magazine so that they don't have to take my word for it.
