Dave Wiggins Jr manages to tie his world record, but not beat it

255m = 837 feet

Ridiculous

I was throwing the Wiggins' Blizzard Bosse (149g) at the distance comp. at Granby.



They go far with minimal effort. Fun disc.

Curious to know what the wind speed was like. Crazy wind is one reason they do it there.

Day 3 had wind all day, big winds came after 12 noon and lasted until 3pm, then dropped rapidly. Winds were 5 - 26 MPH. There were no records set, however Dave Jr. tied his world record throw.

Phil Arthur. 204 meters
Robbie Bratton. 228 meters
John Hime. 141 meters
Marc Jarvis. 196 meters
Rob McLeod. 213.5 meters
Christian Sandstrom. 233.5 meters
Suzette Simons. 102 meters
Jeff Stoops. 173 meters
Paul Ulibarri. 194 meters
David Wiggins Jr. 255 meters tied record
I want to thank all who came to the Desert Wind Open this year. Special thanks to Marc Jarvis, Dave Wiggins Sr. Carry Trotter, and the Boys from Vegas who assisted me in making it a success.

Side note; When Dave Jr. threw the 255 meter throw we all thought this was a new record for sure. First Suzette read the meter backed away and didn't say any thing to me, then I read the meter and it read 255 Meters, I couldn't believe my eyes and rechecked it 2 more times before I turned to Suzette and said, 255, she said yes 255. Unbelievable, to throw the exact same world record throw 2 years in a row. Next year we will have another chance. Jeff Stoops
