Does anyone in the Seattle area play? If so, does anyone play white river in auburn? If not, you really should. It is a kick ass course. Mmmmm..... Disc golf. The only sport where its almost unacceptable to be sober.

Not a beer drinker, but did you know? You can fit almost a whole fifth into these metal waterbottles that are so popular these days. Bring a coke, some whiskey, rinse and repeat. It can lead to lost discs though... On what i believe was my third time, I smoked a bunch, took some k-pin, chugged a tall boy, and promptly lost 4 discs over the course of 36 holes... Haven't made that mistake again. Plastics just too damn expensive.
Disc golf is the shit. We have a ton of nice courses in the Portland area.
They are building a new disc course in Portland as well, a pro level course. I hear the casual thrower will lose all of their discs and never go back. It will be in the NE somewhere, near the river, so there will be lots of wind.

There is a course at Crystal Mountain that is only open in the winter. I haven't been because I have but three discs, and I'm pretty sure none of them would make it out alive. It would be awesome if someone had a practice basket to bring to the Festie for the board meet-up. Putts for joints!

It's a sport, which means it has the right criteria for me to enjoy it. Lots of good players (not me) here in Vancouver, and I am walking distance from QE park, which has a small but fun course.
If you ever get to any of the Gulf Islands between Van Isle and the mainland, bring your discs along. Salt Spring and Pender Island have great courses.
I went to Pender Island for a bachelor party one weekend; specifically to play disc golf. It's a pretty gnarly course, so given how high and drunk we were, it was actually a rather dangerous yet entertaining excursion.
