New Poll – What spin do you take?

When entering a jam with unfamiliar jammers, the question “what spin do you take?” is often posed. The answer is not simple. Let’s say you’re counter skills, although not on par with clock, are still quite formidable. If you answer “clock” you may be branded a clock player and never get a counter throw. Worse, you may be banished from future counter jams. But if you say “both” you may end up getting more counter than clock, and feeling a bit frustrated. Yet, in the time it takes to say “I’d like 87% clock, and 12% counter, and 1% third world with a plus or minus %2 margin.” the disc has been thrown and you’re stuck with what you got. Yes, it’s usually best to blurt out “clock” or “counter” or “yes” or just let a little drool spill from your lip. Gotta keep that flow going after all.

DiscCast Extra: Stork

Frisboyz present pieces of an interview with Stork as a teaser for their decades project. In the interview Stork shares his views on judging and a tournament format idea he has created to help draw players of all skill levels. At jam camp we used the same basic concept to form teams and ended the event with a no pressure competition. It was actually pretty fun to see the new jammers having their skills showcased along side the pros. Many of the campers would not have shown off in this way had we not used this concept. Anyhow, the interview is very thought provoking. Listen to the interview.

Returning From Jam Camp 2010

Lori and I have just returned from Jam Camp 2010 and let me tell you, it was amazing. As always, I spent most of my time with frisbees and friends and not behind the camera or at the computer. However, between Lori and I (mostly Lori) we have some photos, videos, and stories to share. We’ll sort them out and post them over the next couple days. For now, a few memorable moments; huge “pre” jam at Fraser park, Krae in the “post” jam, students step up BIG TIME in the competition, and Stork’s mind blowing introductory talk. Thank you to all the students, instructors, volunteers and ESPECIALLY to Tita for making it all happen. This is one of my favorite yearly events.
