Just got a call from CFRA, which plans to do a telephone interview with me about d.g. Wednesday, August 15th at 5:40 pm. Arrange your lives accordingly.

I'll plug the clinics, CD Exchange, and the virtues of aggressive putting.

Media coverage begets media coverage. The interview will take place during the coveted "drive-time" spot, and should help raise the profile of d.g. a smidgen.

Pete, this month in Maximum Golf, they are raving about disc golf. Here's the beginning of the piece.
You bombed your drive 330 and then shaped a shot around a tree to a target you could barely see. Now comes the pay-off: a putt that hits home with a satisfying CLACKA-CHING !!!
Nice work

This is becoming a serious concern for me and other Disc Gold enthusiasts. If this sport becomes too popular, we will have to start booking tee times.

That course at UPInc is looking better all the time.

Does anyone know the station call #'s for CFRA?

I listen to a lot of stations, but that isn't one of them...

The frenzy continues.

In today's Citizen (August 15), on page A5,
there is an article about Sea Bass.

Thanks for the AM dial translation.... that would be the All-Lowell Green, all-the-time station.

I never cared much for old Slowell, the Prophet of the Great Unwashed, but I'll listen this afternoon.

As for Ken's O'Citizen reference, would the Seabass article be the "I expected her to slap me" article or the one about "...share blame for native abuse"?

None of the above Don, it is the article about Sea Bass.

I must have the Seabass-censored version of the Citizen. Do they have multiple-versions anymore (early/late edition)? My page A5 had a * alongside today's date if that means anything...
