Disc golf has been around for 30 years, give or take a few. Ball golf has been around about a thousand years, give or take a few.
Naturally, it will take a little longer before our sport is treated with mutual respect.
The best thing we can do right now is continue to evangalize the sport, in the most positive way possible.
Funny side note.... I always refter to the sport I play as "golf". Those that know me know what I'm talking about. There's a guy that works with Bob and I that absolutely hits the roof every time we call it golf. Natutally, I now do it all the time.
