DGCR Mid-Atlantic Meet

This weekend 30 DGCR members converged on Hawk Hollow for a weekend of disc golf. The weather couldn't have been any better. Clear blue skies and fair temps made the event.

It was a great weekend. Lots of disc golf, good food and perfect disc golf weather.

New Improved Putter

Altitude DG is going out of business and all of their plastic is 1/2 price. I was able to find an orange 165 Champion Dart and decided to try and improve my first putter dye.

This could be my best dye as far as cutting the mask clean and very minimum bleeds.

Do a Little Dye, Play a Little Golf

I've been sick with a cold all week. It's been especially sucky considering this week the heat of Summer has been broken by the coming fall. I couldn't resist playing some morning rounds.

Today I woke up late and got started on finishing up my latest dye for a friend that is starting her disc golf journeys.

I ripped off the the girl from Greenday's "Kerplunk" album to pull this one off.

Afternoon was looking sweet for a round so I headed out to Loriella and as I walked up to the first tee Chris, his brother Dave, Randy and their friends were there so we played teams. 

This was one of my best rounds ever. Parked birdie shots on #1, #2 & #7. Hit a 75' laser shot on #8 for birdie. Hit several 30'-40' putts and after 16 we were tied with Randy's team at 3 under.

Randy Parked the tee shot and I was about 30' out and hit the putt to keep up at -4. 

Randy threw another good tee shot on 18 and was about 15' out. Dave's drive had us out about 25'. Dave missed but I was able to hit the putt to keep us at 5 under.

The tie breaker was a tee shot from 18's basket to #1's basket and again Randy teed up a great shot. My partner Dave went long & I wasn't too bad about 20' out but we both missed the putt and Randy was able to put it away.

But it was a great round for me. A lot of great drives, some great upshots & really good putting.

Multi-Color 2nd Attempt

My new 134 Champion Blizzard Katana needed a samurai theme so I went to my favorite subject. Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie T. Head.

I figured with my Champion Cobra if I called you a loser but Mickey had a smile that would be OK.

Multi-Color Disc Dyes

It's been a while since I have posted anything. I did play in two tournaments. Did about the usual and didn't get in the prizes but I had fun.

The DGCR Hawk Hollow meet is coming up in 2 weeks and my contribution to the prize pool was to dye the trophy discs for Jerry. these were my first attempt at doing multiple colors.

They didn't turn out too bad for a first multi-color attempt.
