    Default Same disc, same hole, same result

    Yellow Champion Boss. Seviren Lang. Hole one, again, to the left in the brush. Think it buried in the snow.

    Whenever you get the Boss back, try taping a super thin brightly colored (or really dark) thread to the bottom of the plate. That way you've got more to look for than a cut mark in the snow. Hope you get your disc back.
    All I need is some tasty waves and a cool buzz and I'm all right.

    I backhand as a hobby, I putt to pay the bills.

    OR throw way more to the right of the hole & watch it land next to the basket instead of the woods.

    & a BOSS on such a straight forward shot ? NOT my 1st pick of what to throw

    I saw a post on the PDGA website a couple years ago about using blue climbers chalk on the disc right before you throw and it will make a mark on the snow that is easily visible. I have never tried it but it sounds reasonable.

    Jason, wouldn't that be adding weight to the disc? Guessing it would be minimal but doesn't hurt to figure it out beforehand.

    Is this the same blue chalk carpenters also used to run chalk lines & can be found at your local hardware store ?

    I have no distance, so it's the only one I can really get there. I meant to go to the right and bring it back in, I just let it go a bit too soon.

    I'm guessing no. The posting was by Chuck on the PDGA board and he is one has the "Ask Chuck" thread about rules. If it is ok with him, I'm guessing it's ok.
