Turns out many disc golfers are active in more ways than on the course.
At least according to the poll conducted on Rattling Chains last week. Each votes was able to choose up to three other sports they participated in besides disc golf.
For me, it’s only a couple of things. I like to ride my bike when I get the chance (albeit probably not as much as I should!) and I play softball as much as I can during the spring and summer months.
We didn’t get every sport listed, which kind of stinks with “other” receiving the most votes for the week.
Ninety-two voters took part in this past week’s poll, giving us a total of 178 votes.
Other earned the most with 27 votes for 29 percent of the vote. It was followed by cycling (23 votes, 25 percent). Baseball/softball, ball golf and just disc golf followed with 20 votes each (22 percent).
Basketball and Ultimate Frisbee, as well as sports such as tennis were mentioned in the comments.
And maybe all one needs is disc golf, eh? Said Brian Buller:
I answered just disc golf but then realized that I do get in an occasional game of Ultimate here and there in the summer, but not very often. It’s pretty much just disc golf for me. Why on earth would I want to do anything else???
And one of the beauties of being out playing disc golf is being outdoors, at least in my eyes. So it didn’t shock me that someone mentioned other outdoor activities mixed in with this. From reader @inourdr:
I use to play baseball but don’t have the time to join a league now-a-days. Most of my free time is spent snow shoeing in the winter and fishing or kayaking in the summer. I disc golf year round, which is quite the adventure in Montana.
Thanks to everyone who commented and voted. As usual, we like to send a little something out to a random person chosen from those who commented on the site.
This week, the randomizer over at Random.org selected John as the winner. I’ll be contacting you via e-mail for your address so I can send you a little something!
And now for this week’s poll!
Avery Jenkins, who also blogs here at Rattling Chains, recently did a review in conjunction with DG Squared about the GripEQ bag he wears. So it got me thinking — what kind of bag does everyone out there wear?
I started with a small Fade bag, which was nice as I could put three or four discs and a bottle of water in there with no issues. But I grew out of it, not just with discs, but with other things I wanted to carry. I’m now carrying a Revolution bag and I really dig it. But I’ve seen so many other interesting bags — including the GripEQ bag Jenkins carries — that are intriguing.
I’ve done my best to get all bags listed here and I apologize if I’ve missed one. Hence why I’ve added the “other” selection again.
So vote away and let us know in the comments why you have the bag you do. Maybe you upgraded as well? What did you used to use? A random commenter will be selected for a prize, so make sure you leave your thoughts!
