Okay, back to topic :shock:

For all you happy huckers that are coming down to Essex, i have some very special fundraisers in my possession for your perusal, the Innova ones are still flying across the pond, but the Discraft discs have landed and are looking very very nice, i have Boudicca in ColorMax on X Elite Challengers, Z Avengers, ESP Pulses and ESP Wasps, i also have a couple of SuperColor Spectra's with Boudicca in all her glory, this boudicca stamp is slightly different to the Innova one so if you want a full set of the 2007 British Open discs be sure to grab one of these babies.

See you all on Sunday

For those, like me, who don't keep up with Discraft discs, apparently the Avenger is very similar to a Wraith, and the Pulse is like the Teerex.

I might have an ESP Wasp off you...

Now i wouldn't agree there, the Avenger is a lot more predictable and a tad more stable than the wraith, perhaps not quite as much distance, i love them. The pulse is my go to side arm disc and it is very predictable as well, i would agree though, that it is quite similar to the teerex.

Good man, i forgot to say how much these discraft babies are,
£12 for ESP
£11 for Z
£10 for Elite X
Spectra's are £15 and there are only 2 for sale, unless of course you pop over to our Twisted friends :wink:

Apparently there is quite a big difference between the X and Z Avengers, with the latter being, as you say, a touch more stable and a little shorter than the Wraith.

How do I get to Essex?

Post by TheGroover » Wed Nov 29, 2006 5:14 pm

I've got a map of the course, and the map to Colchester Uni - I assume that one just turns up at the car park of the sports centre, and it's then obvious where to go to find everyone?

If not, where do I go once I make it to the course on Sunday?

Oh, and is the course map on the Essex disc golf site pointing with South to the top?

Follow all signs to the University, when you enter the University follow the road to the last car park which has a sign saying Visitors car park, do not park at the sports centre car park, the visitors car park is in between the 2 courses and where everyone will be, it is free.

Even though i did the map, i have no idea which way points south, curious to know why thats relevant?

Only because I was trying to match it up to the maps on the Essex Uni site and it all looked a bit upside down. Not important, it was just the geographical nerd in me!

The Happy Huck was a humourous affair with 13 players braving the early bad weather, high winds and some light rain greeted everybody at the players meeting, but as we all started our 1st round the rain stopped and the sun came out and shone all day long :D the wind however decided to stay with us, which made for some interesting game play :lol: No one got an ace and no one hit metal!!!!!! :( so the £48 will roll over to the next event held at Essex 8)

The results are:

1st Fernando Brown 132
2nd Rick Hoffa 134
3rd Paul Cooper 147
=4th Tim Herring 148
=4th Andy Cotgreave 148
6th Brian Splarg 150
7th Ross Poole 153
8th Travis Stone 160
9th Steve "Four" Broster 163
10th John Oakley 167
11th Dave Allaker 168
12th Dan Gouldby 171
13th Douglas Walker 201

And everybody won a prize :D I had one lame excuse about bad weather from our head honcho at the BDGA, seems he's a fair weather golfer :roll:

Great courses, great company, great fun 8)
