Oh how sweet it is to win a shiny new disc, eh?
For the past two weeks, we’ve run a contest where disc golfers could share their favorite stories and have a chance to win a new disc.
I thought we’d gather more entries than we did. After all, free plastic is free plastic, eh?
Still, we received some good stories. And for the 16 who entered, it’s much easier to have a chance to win via the Random.org randomizer!
All of the stories were quite fun to read. They differed in tone and substance, which really shows the versatility of the game and how different things can happen.
Take for example, Luke. It seems our reader was playing in a not-so-nice neighborhood, loaned a disc to a shady character for some holes and… well, I’ll let Luke take it from here…
So we are playing and he starts telling me how he used to play there all the time but he hadn’t for a while because he had been in jail and just got out a few weeks before. He didn’t say what he’d been in for, but then he goes on to say, “Yeah, and I’m probably going back as soon as I go home today. The cops are probably waiting for me. I got drunk and beat the hell out of my ex-girl’s old man.”
How about Kevin, who suffered a broken ankle and when he was on the mend, he went out for a round with some friends and his brother. He then decided — on a hole not known for aces — to call a skip ace.
