Erm, no :P

Discounts and offers are individual and can't be combined :)

And its BDGA TOURING member, not a recreational for the £5 discount! Just to clarify :)

Was hoping to play at the Frostbreaker in my attempt to play more than just the Cyclone this year. Unfortunately in my recent house move I have lost my disc bag! It looks likely that all my discs are gone forever though there is a slim chance that they will turn up (long story). The upshot of this is no tournaments or indeed disc golf of any description until I can replace my discs :cry:

Lost discs should not mean missed tournaments!

I can lend you some discs as I am sure can lots of other people. I have a whole box of barely used discs for this purpose. Any playing with new/different discs is good for your game (although it may cause a drop in your round scores). What discs do you throw?

James, if you spent one tenth of the time you do on 'being amazing' on improving your grammar, you may just drag it into line with the civilised world. Ten errors in a two-line post? That's some kind of record! :wink:

I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets wound up by that Jester.

And it is James's (although a lot of these rules have never really been standardised). :P

Why do you get wound up by Jester? Or did you mean to put a comma in that sentence? :shock:

No, it's fine either way. Both are valid.

I am not quite sure if this strand is an indicment of the current state of education in the state sector or just abuse of James in general. The point about bringing spare discs to Whitcombe for anyone who might have lost theirs seems to have been lost. And James is right - I have far too many discs that he thinks are his but knows are mine! Happy to contribute.

I may not be able to make it for that one now but hopefully the Spring Fling instead.
I need to consult with my fellow Eastbourne colleagues to see what are options are.

Charlie - It's a dig at the state of the language more than education. Even the teachers among us cannot speak or write properly most of the time. I've never met a teacher who uses the phrase "I was sitting" instead of " I was sat". My current pet hate is that Americans on TV never use adverbs! You did well, not good!
I am proud to be part of the BDGA when there was such a quick response to help make sure someone could play.

Tom - I'll go and rewrite my sentence one hundred times. Thank you for pointing it out.

now that we've stopped all that grammatical stuff (blimey, and I thought the French were grammatically pedantic) I'm pleased to say we've got out of the twenties with Derek making it 30!! Come on - anyone else out there?

Does anyone know Ben Foxall's email? He's asked for a bed in the Summer House but it's full and I need to know if he's happy with the floor or wants me to find a B&B. If anyone knows how to get in touch with him, please pass on the message and ask him to email me. thanks.

BTW - with Patrick, Angus and Edd Green entered, we're now 33 registered players.
