Anecdote from today:

On the 10th tee an older couple were walking nearby and were watching us and the group ahead of us playing. The man came up to us and said, "Is this a real game? We're foreign." I explained a little about disc golf, found out they were from the Auvergne region in France, and further explained that yes, this is kind of a subculture sport, but it is also played in France.

A minute later, his memory jogged, he came back to tell us that when he was young, he grew up in the Pyrénées, and as part of a festival every summer, there was a beret throwing contest in the town square. Disc golf reminded him of that.

I looked into it, it appears to be a distance contest. World record is 35.20 meters. His wife commented that this is just more modernization, things have gone from wool to plastic...

Here's a video link: (having trouble embedding it since it's not youtube...)

It also seems that the pro rugby team from the city of Pau has a half-time spectacle of a beret throwing contest for fans:



Too funny, He told us about the beret thowing contest as well...

When we were on 10 this older lady pointed at the basket and said "I hope your not trapping animals with that thing" Shocked

35 meters is pretty impressive distance with a beret.

Must have been a sick tailwind.

the chatter won't die down about VMP....

Mentioned the episode from the 6th tee 2nd round where 4 out of 5 "dentists" drove into the same tree.

My interlocutor (guess who...) didn't miss a beat and picked up that "just like artists make art, ...." Ha!

See, this is why the selection process for pro-am doubles needs to be revisited. How can I expect to compete when stuck with an albatros like that guy?

I stand by the selection process done to put the teams together.
