I have to admit this — I’m a bit of a fair-weather disc golfer.
This might be coupled with the fact that there’s not a decent course for a good 1:20 drive from me, but still.
I look ahead as far as I can when it comes to tournaments. Is it supposed to rain? Be too hot? It makes me consider if I want to play or not. Especially taking into consideration the terrain of the course.
First, let’s take a peek at last week’s poll and see what we have.
Of the 72 voters who took part in the poll, 29 percent (21 votes) said they had lost 11 or more discs!
Eleven or more!
Knock on wood, but I’m lucky to know I’ve lost none. Of course, I also search for as long as possible to find my discs, but still. And, I’m sure, I’ll eventually lose a disc or two. It happens.
The next spot went to 5-6 discs, which garnered 22 percent (16 votes). Next was 3-4 discs (21 percent/15 votes), followed by 1-2 (13 percent/9 votes) and none (6 percent/4 votes).
To think people have lost so many discs!
Let’s see what some people have said:
Justin Allen says:
Why is it that my favorite discs are the only ones I lose?!
That’s always my worry. I have 2 or 3 discs where I would probably cry if they were lost for good!
Now, there are some great stories on this poll. I don’t want to give ’em all away, though, because…
NOTE ON THE CONTEST FOR THE DISC: Readers have until Wednesday (June 27) to post a comment on last week’s poll and have a chance to win the disc. We’ll announce the winner Thursday!
So get over to that thread and fill out your story! Give yourself a chance to win a disc!
But before we get to this week’s poll, we like to give something random away to those who comment on the weekly poll. This week’s Randomizer selection is Roger Abbott. Send me an address as well so I can get something from the prize box out to you!
Now for this week’s poll…
This one is supposed to be fun, as shown by your poll choices. I know so many people who will play in anything. But some will only play excellent weather. Rain won’t scare some off, but snow does. Or vice versa.
Personally, I’m one who will play if the temp rests anywhere from, say, about 25 degrees to 80 degrees. Colder or warmer than those and I’m not comfortable. Add in Mother Nature (rain, snow etc.) and I’m less likely to play.
It’s not that the weather scares me, it’s that it takes away from my enjoyment. And if I’m not having fun, what’s the point?
So what kind of disc golfer are you?
Vote away and make sure to comment as we’ll, as always, give something away to a random commenter. You can’t win if you don’t comment here. (In other words, comments on Facebook or other places where this poll might be linked won’t count… it has to be here).
