and in Fort Worth, Texas, sure enough the magic of snowfall at Christmas time was more than abundant. Thatís in our Texan terms. 2 inches of snow on the ground AND it didnít melt in an hour. Yankees try to stifle your laughter, but for us Texas guys and gals, this was a Christmas treat we havenít seen in many, many years. In true Texas fashion, our round yesterday at Bear Creek Park in Grapevine, TX was played in 70 degree and sunny weather and less than 24 hours go by before we see snow falling for hours at a time. Who woulda thought.
My Nuke in the Texas Snow.
My brother and I have been spending lots of time out on the course this week. Weíve been throwing the Nuke around, and so far both of us are really enjoying Discraftís newest edition to their lineup. It is crazy fast. Put it on a good line because once you release, it is GONE. Itís fun to watch a fast disc take off and fly. What I like personally is that this speed demon isnít so overstable that I canít throw the thing relatively straight. Fast drivers are great, and itís wonderful to have one that isnít a meathook out of the box. Once beaten in, I predict that this disc is going to be perfect for maximum distance with soft S-curves. I love the stamp-it reminds me of something out of Back to the Future.
Saturday morning, December 26, we will be out at North Park in Haltom City, TX cleaning up the course with the locals at 9am. If you are in the DFW, TX area we could use your help. If not, donít forget to help out your local club when they have work days. Your sacrifice of a few hours every once in a while keeps our courses enjoyable for everyone. Most parks and rec departments alone wonít maintain the courses to the level we want, so itís up to us, the disc golf community, to get the job done. I know I donít even have to say this but donít forget your discs- all work and no play makes jack a dull boy.
Merry Christmas to all! Hope your holidays are jolly!
See ya on the course,
