Sounds good. Do you have a fancy frisbee? Or just something normal? I have a cheap frisbee here from a conference, and I also have an Aerobie sport.

For more than you ever really wanted to know about frisbee golf (disc golf more generically) discs, checkout
golf discs http://tinyurl.com/zcax9

There's a load of different weights involved and, depending on the disc, it will have different characteristics in flight. If you're using baskets, proper discs are pretty much a must. Like steeker, I generally use my regular discs: heavies, 165 + for driving and the smaller ones for finisse appoachers, 133's or 110's depdending on wind conditions

I don't know if there's even a real disc course in the Toronto area.

yeah, I know there's different weights and such, hence my question. There's a real course out on the islands afaik.

Doing it on a fixie would be pretty hardcore, but I guess I am not hardcore enough.

We will be on our dope geared bikes, the Benotto and the Cramerotti.

I don't even own a helmet so I had to take one from work today


I dont even like it, but I never like any helmet I try on.

I will probably bring it back...

FYI
So finally made it down to MEC today (4:30ish) no more park tool (witch i knew) they are now selling fitzer, but no pedal wrenches in stock. Cycle therapy (great place to get park tools) the chic convinced me on the shop one $ but very nice & beefy.

RE:Gboy that’s terrible that your buddies locked you out next time out i'll bring some eggs & we'll hit there place!

LOL, they're at Elm/McCaul, but their apt room doesn't face the street, but rather another apt building. I'll think of something to get them back though... :evil:

yes, good luck to the hairshirt lads tomorrow; this is the first year in a while that i haven't done it so make the FG/SS toronto lads proud. i've done it in about 15 hours, let's see you better that time (i'm sure you can). i'll check in with you tomorrow night.

Oh willpower, save me now.
If you don't get to using the hubs hook me up! I don't feel like placing an order for it.
and broken social scene/bloc party/fiest blew my mind.
I feel asleep in the sun waiting for the bands to come out so i'm going to peel everywhere tomorrow
