My Dad’s book will soon be published. Here is some of the data.
In the writing phase I was able to read the manuscripts and was very compelled.
The way the world teaches science, and what is actual fact are completely different. To much of the world, “scientific theories” have become religion.
They look upon evolutionary science as a means to justify their sinful lives.
This book presents alternate theories that are more in harmony with scripture, and helps us see how faulty much of secular science really is.
I just wrote a little post explaining the difference between “frolf” and disc golf, that helps people to find the best frolf discs. Check it out. And you’ll like this sweet picture too… It’s of the Gateway Diablo which has interesting dimples in the bottom side of the rim.
So it’s negative temperatures outside. Good thing I have my indoor disc golf basket. Ah yeah, I shouldn’t be missing any 15 foot putts anymore.
After more than a month of hard work… (a lot longer than we had anticipated)… Kirk and I officially launched our online disc golf retail website. It took a really long time getting all of the product information and descriptions together, as well as the sort functionality.
Now that it’s done… This is a pretty sweet website, and provides the ultimate tools to help you find and buy the perfect golf disc.
Our site allows you to find and compare discs based on:
- Disc Stability
- Disc Flight Paths
- Disc Speed Ratings - (We’ve given ALL discs ratings as used by Innova’s flight ratings)
- Disc Glide Ratings
- Disc Turn Ratings
- Disc Fade Ratings
- Rim Width (wing length)
- Disc Type (Driver, Fairway Driver, Midrange, Putter)
- Ratings as reviewed by actual disc golfers (Yes, we have hundreds of ratings and reviews by disc golfers of all skill levels from all over the country)
You can also search based on brand, and we carry discs from all the major manufactuers: Innova, Discraft, Discmania, Latitude 64, Millennium, Gateway, and DGA. We also have discs from some of the lesser known brands like Lightning, MVP, Skyquest, ABC, Westside, and Legacy Discs.
We’ve done our best to offer competitive pricing, quantity discounts, and the best overall disc golf buying experience. To help people become aware of our new website, we’re going to be giving away 50 custom stamped infinite discs. You can get these free discs by following Infinite on Facebook or Twitter, and by helping us get more reviews on our website.
Here’s a look at these beautiful discs:
So I’ve been disc golfing seriously for about five months now, and tonight went to my first league play.
Normally, I have to tend the kids on Wednesday nights because my wife has church callings. Tonight her meeting was cancelled so I had the thumbs up to try my luck with the Cache Valley traveling disc golf league.
Overall, it was a pretty good experience.
Cache Valley has only one real disc golf course, but the guys in charge of the league have taken creative measures to create temporary courses. Today we played at the Cache County fairgrounds, and it made a pretty sweet course. If only there were a permanent course here with baskets.
When you play casually and for fun as I had previously done, rules don’t matter so much. Essentially you just try and have fun, and get the disc in the basket.
Now when you go to league play, things are a little bit different. This is serious business. At league play there is something called “out of bounds.” If you throw your disc out of bounds, you get penalty strokes, and penalty strokes severely add to your score. I’m kind of not a fan of penalty strokes or out of bounds.
Not only do they have out of bounds, but the league creators have invented other rules like “mandi’s” and “islands.” With a mandi, you are required to have your disc fly a certain direction, otherwise you get more penalty strokes. With islands, you have to land in a certain spot, otherwise you get additional penalty strokes.
Needless to say, I thought I was a pretty decent disc golfer before, but once you add the penalty strokes, things change a lot.
I also had the opportunity to play with some really good disc golfers who could accurately chuck the disc freaking far, and with incredible accuracy. That was also an eye opening experience.
Next time I go there are a couple of things I’ll do differently…
1. Bring my best golf discs. Now being a professional disc golf tester is really fun, but by switching between so many discs so often, my bag is always changing, and I rarely master and get used to individual discs.
For this particular round, I didn’t have my Vibram Ridge putter. This disc is awesome, and without it I really struggled to make putts. There were at least 6 putts I should have made that I didn’t.
2. Bring a flashlight. Now it took some time before the disc golfers got going, and by the time we got to hole 14, it was dark. The good news is that I had my glow in the dark Monarch, the bad news is that all I had was my phone to charge the glow.
Playing in the disc golf league was lots of fun, once it moves to Saturdays, I’ll have to do it again.
