    Throwing Challenge

    Post  Mandy on Fri Feb 27, 2009 12:05 pm

    Right this is just an idea that came to me, feel free to slate it if ya'll don't think it's a good ieda, but hear me out. It's a throw-as-many-passes-as-ya-can-without-dropping-the-disc-competition. The name is still a work in progress.

    The ability to string together long series's of passes without fecking up is invaluable, and I'm pleased to report that myself and Spewey finished our throw today with 53 passes before a drop.

    So my challenge is this: Beat that(Shouldn't be too hard, it's a fairly easy starting point) and post up here with your new 'top score'

    You never specified a distance. With 3 yard passing the top score could get ridiculous.

    Correct me if I'm wrong on this, I did do pass maths, but 1800 passes with 60 drops gives an average of 30 passes to one drop, which is a little short of 53...

    And Sterile, throw between as short a distance as you like, let it get ridiculous, if ya can Very Happy

    a disk has to spin once for it to be 'completed', so steile steves question seems legit. as the distance goes up, so too does the difficulty. i propose a drunken version.

    I recommend a separate record for throws completed while drunk...


    This is giving me an idea for new kill drills.... I wonder how effective every time you drop it you drink two fingers would be?

    This is a good idea...

    but my biggest weakness is passing the disc, not catching it. i can catch it, i cant throw it under pressure. so... if this will help that, im in + its on,...its on like donkey kong

    we tried it out in NUIM...on Monday...but we only got to 27!
    Embarassed
    it was lashing rain though...and we were dodging traffic cos we were on the road (plus it was 8.30 pm so we couldn't really see!)...probably not the ideal situation but we're getting there!...

    practice makes perfect i guess!!! lol!

    awwww....we should have...although something tells me we still wouldn't have gotten past 27! Laughing Laughing


    heehee!!!



    we can blame the low score on the lack of 'light up frisbee'!...had nothing to do with the lack of talent! scratch

    Ya but Bear you forgot you gotta divide your score by the number of years that you've been playing ultimate... I've been playing almost 6 months, how long have you been playing? 10, 11 years? Razz Razz Razz
