I consider myself to be a fairly new player (I started in July of 2012). A friend at work got me addicted to the sport - I wish I discovered it years ago! I play as often as my schedule, the weather, and my wife allow. Lately I have been shooting +15-20, not that awesome but compared to a year ago...big difference. I've played most of the local courses with Parma and MCC (hole 9!) being my favorites. I am even considering entering my first GRDGC amateur tournament in 2014, which I am a little nervous about!
During the past year+, I've met some awesome, knowledgeable people who have given me great pointers, let me try a disc, whatever. The feeling of brotherhood and camaraderie is amazing! It seems like everyone is friendly and willing to help, unlike a lot of other sports. For example, I was playing solo at Basil, and lost a disc in some deep scrub. I looked for a while by myself, no luck. I see a guy waiting on the teepad for me. I tell him "go ahead" he throws (perfectly I might add) and then proceeds to help me find my disc for the next 20 minutes or so (we found it!). We finished out the rest of the 18 together (with great pointers given out the whole time!) Also, I have been pretty lucky in getting my lost discs returned (nobody has taken my offer of a reward!) Karma!
I have not attended any club meetings due to the fact they are on Wednesday nights (my 12 yo son and I have Boy Scouts on Wednesday nights), but I would love to help the club anyway I can (I have been a carpenter since I could hold a hammer). Anytime there is work to be done, let me know! The posting of the club minutes really helps too!
