and in Fort Worth, Texas, sure enough the magic of snowfall at Christmas time was more than abundant. That’s in our Texan terms. 2 inches of snow on the ground AND it didn’t melt in an hour. Yankees try to stifle your laughter, but for us Texas guys and gals, this was a Christmas treat we haven’t 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 brother and I have been spending lots of time out on the course this week. We’ve been throwing the Nuke around, and so far both of us are really enjoying Discraft’s newest edition to their lineup. It is crazy fast. Put it on a good line because once you release, it is GONE. It’s fun to watch a fast disc take off and fly. What I like personally is that this speed demon isn’t so overstable that I can’t throw the thing relatively straight. Fast drivers are great, and it’s wonderful to have one that isn’t 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, don’t 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 won’t maintain the courses to the level we want, so it’s up to us, the disc golf community, to get the job done. I know I don’t even have to say this but don’t 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,
