    UNDERSTATEMENT! When I consider the list of people who have positively impacted disc golf in the Northwest you are definitely in the top group!
    Hath this whole world been mired in madness?
    Remain ye men of faculty complete,
    Of full arithmetic and prudence fair,
    Attending to our noble bond and contract?
    Or does here stand the last remaining man
    To give a fig for rules and order yet,
    No noble savage, but a stave unbroken
    Who loves the law and bids it no misdeed.
    Iíll not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.

      Yes, the good old days when only the darkies and wetbacks ever witnessed the killer weed. I too long for those better times, when John Wayne and Ronald Reagan bravely served our country on the big screen.

Should the folks who wish to provide such a shield take the field from the adults, or vice verse?

        Stick golf may have it's sterotype of drinking etc but however, they are already big on sponsors and money etc.
        Disc Golf needs to climb up the ladder for a while before we can loosen up on our sterotypes I would think...

            I think that that was my friend Dominic... who wasn't playing in the event and got removed from the park by a guy in a uniform.

            I have no recollection of someone being removed from the 2007 RCO... and you'd think I would.
            ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

              Papa... the story I heard was that you were in third and the two guys who got the DQ were in first and second. I think that that part of the story - true or not - is what might have led to the vilification.

                Nope...with four holes to go in the final round (before the final nine) I was in first place. This was also after I had said at the beginning of the round that I was not cool with this activity during an event and would have to report any occurences that happened. Two others in our group said that they also did not want this going on and they assured the two that did wish to engage in the activity that they could be sure I would take action.

                However, what place you are in has nothing to do with following the rules of our game. Past the fact that it is a rule, it is also at this time illegal. In Washington state, drinking alcohol in our public parks without a permit is also illegal.

                What I am really trying to say is forget about what you may consider grand inequities in the law. The bottom line is that at this point these are the laws. If we uphold them and abide by them it will better present our sport and our participants to those that are new or interested. Putting our best foot forward does do positive things. Showing our backside, like what happened in Florida and other places, yields results like losing the great Red Hawk Course.

                  Dear Mr Fingers of tasty links,

                  Thank you for the praise. I have done nothing but try to help grow the sport and have fun with everyone I can. I just love to play this game and have a hard time believing that not everybody is playing it!

                  Keep on throwing plastic at metal!

                  Later,

                    I fully endorse this post.

                          Thanks for clearing that up. I had a feeling that the vilification was overblown.

                          I agree with the rest of the post, Scott. There is a time and a place for those who choose to engage in this activity. During a round or in a time or place where it will cause harm is clearly not the right time or place.
