Why You Should Consider Disc Golf

 If you’re not familiar with Disc Golf it’s a game similar to regular golf except one uses a specialized Frisbee and instead of putting it in a hole in the ground you have to throw it into a unique basket that has a series of chains for catching the disc.  You can learn more about it at (Yes, there is a professional disc golf association) I’ve been playing disc golf casually for about 8 years now.  I think it was my cousin who first introduced me but the real accreditation goes to my good friend Dave who is a disc golf nut…

The one year I had the luxury of a working snow blower was also the year we barely got any snow. I recently changed my perspective on shoveling snow and most chores in general.
