    Yeah, I don't really think I'm the guy to run that escort service. All you Johns our there can bring your own. The Inn will still rent you a room.

            A lot of women don't like to play because every time they go to the course to play they are either ostracized for being a woman playing disc golf or they are stared at by male disc golfers as if these men haven't seen a woman in twenty years and most women don't like that as hard as that is to believe. When people who don't play the sport think of "frisbee golf" they think of college kids or dirty hippies smoking weed in the park and most women want to be a part of something more prestigious and when combined with my earlier statements they aren't sure they would or would want to fit in to the disc golf community. Men will always dominate the percentage of women to men in this sport, it's for guys to get together with their friends and throw plastic dinner plates at pieces of metal that resemble a horse trough.

                Wow where the heck are you playing? I nor any of my Chick friends who play have be ostracized for being a women, and playing disc golf. I think our disc golf community in the Portland metro area, and all of Oregon for that matter, are very supportive of women playing. At our Chick Flick event last year we had lots of guys helping out, and supporting the 75 women who attended the event.

                I feel safe playing on any course as long as there are other disc golfers around male, or female. I have played on several occasions by myself, and the only time I felt a little iffy was when there was not many other disc golfers on the course.

                I think what might creep some out are the poor taste posts that have proceeded mine on this tread. Pretty degrading stuff if you ask me.

                  Actually there has been a tournament like this for the last two years the Chick Flick. At last years event we had 75 women of all levels from Open to never played before. The first day is all clinics and a casual round with mixed divisions, and the 2nd is a full on tournament. This years event will be even better.

                    why don't you just get a girlfriend and then teach her to play?
                    i think the problem is not the lack of girls playing disc golf( there are alot of them out there) but your innability to get a girlfriend

                      Not long after I got out of the service in 1968, I discovered that the best people I could find to be with were what most would call, "hippies." Many were actually college kids too! Somehow, anyone without a brush-cut was stereotyped as "dirty." I didn't find that stereotype to hold to any appreciable degree. It seems that even the hippie types had noses. What got them in trouble was that they didn't conform to the "good" stereotypes. Anyone not conforming was going to be called a hippie, in spite of how they thought of themselves. They just didn't go along to get along. I think I would call that, "courage."

                      Today is the sixties in spades. The propaganda machine is smarter and stronger than ever, and the avenues of acceptable thought and expression narrower, if in subtle ways. To dis the wars is to dis warriors, so best to shut up. I still think of myself as a hippie, though I may have cut off my braids. I got them caught in power tools too many times. I hated to see them go, but it was for my own safety.

                      With the propaganda machine as it is today, most of you (and all the more, the younger you might be) will likely see the ravings of some old wacko in my writings. But I know this country is not the whole world. This country is the master of mind control technology, and few of any age get through unscathed. I'd say the world's hope lies mostly outside our borders, where few of us have much idea what's up.

                      Well, the hippies have gotten old, and generations of new Americans, suckled on the teevee and talk radio, can dismiss those dirty old hippies and see how good a job they can do with the country and the world for their descendants. It's their turn now. Bless 'em all.

                        But that sounds difficult, and lacking in instant gratification.

                          If a woman is truly interested in you, she will want to share your interests. If disc golf is all that defines you as a person, then you have issues. There has got to be more to each and every one of you than dg. This is a better way to get a woman Find a new woman and introduce her to the sport.
                          I love disc golf and play as much as I can, but I also play piano and practice that as much as I can. Learn to cook. Everyone eats, and women love a man who is a master in the kitchen. I just became engaged last night. My fiancee is not a disc golfer and had never even heard of the sport before she met me. She asked me to take her out one day and she could not even throw 50 feet. Nonetheless, she supports my addiction and I am sure she will improve. We have many more important things in common than disc golf.

                              I'm glad to hear that the Portland area is much better than the Seattle area where I live when it comes to disc golf but we already knew that. A chick flick wouldn't work in Seattle, be glad you live in Oregon. I do know several women that play the sport and are a big part of the community and are some of my best friends in the sport, mainly because I have a hard time getting along with other men, some anyway. Maybe ostracized isn't the right word, but I have introduced women to the sport and after a couple times on the course they feel out of place because they are the only women playing with a bunch of guys staring at them, It's different when they are with their boyfriends but this thread is about single women. I agree as long as single men keep posting threads like this it's not going to help their case in getting more women out to play.
