I'm on my second pair of Keen Disc Golf shoes. The current pair available is the DeLavaega's.
They seem comparable to Merrell's. Unfortunately, I have never seen the Keen's available in retail...online only!
Merrell's can be found at places like Dick's, Scheel's or other sporting goods stores...
I'm not able to play tomorrow, however I do have two baskets that I'm giving to Gibby to bring with him in the morning and he has one!
I will be coming up after work to cheer the J-town crew on!!
And do whatever I can to help out!
Here's a different kind of thank you!
First the background: For Christmas, I got a flag pole for my front yard! I have wanted one of these telescopic flag poles for years now.
In addition to flying an American flag, I also have a Cubs flag (sorry Frank!). I also wanted a "disc golf" flag. Didn't really matter what type but I started looking for an Innova flag that would work.
These proved to be very difficult to find. On a whim and after searching since the first of the year, I decided to email the company.
Early afternoon I got a reply from David Shope in customer service telling me that they have a flag that should work nicely. I sent an email back telling him that would be awesome and in addition to my address what would the charge be??
2 hours later he replied saying it was on it's way to me and there would be no charge!
I replied back letting him know I'd send a pic or two of it once I get it in the ground this spring!
I don't throw Innova plastic exclusively, I'll throw anything that works for me! Nonetheless, pretty cool gesture on Innova's part. Just wanted to share that with my disc golf fam!!
For me, I think just competing for the lowest number tag is enough. We are fortunate to have a variety of opportunities in the J-Town area for competition. Many of them do include a chance to improve one's rating.
I personally enjoy the laid back atmosphere the bag tag league provides. I don't feel as though every league/tourney or chance to play has to be at such a competitive level.
While I enjoy competition and plan my disc golf schedule with the competition in mind, I often don't have the opportunity to play a "casual" round...The bag tags provide that casual round for me.
I am not in favor of bag tags being a handicap league but in fairness I will say that if the $1 is an option and I can still participate in tags without being in the rating of the league, I would continue to play on Saturday mornings. If it was mandatory, I would probably discontinue playing in the bag tag league as I already play in the Tuesday night Handicap league.
Just my 2 cents.
