I just switched back to the wizards from the Aviars. Started with wizards, then to Aviars, now back to wizards so we will see how it goes. We will see if the Warlock can replace the Aviar.

Advice:
       Be yourself. Take in any advice others have to offer, but don't change what works for you just because it works for someone else. Just because a disc works for someone else, doesn't mean that it will do the same for you. Don't let someone else make you feel any less because of who you are. Never be afraid to ask questions or get advice and at the same time try to pass on these same things to others. Go big, or go home, leave it all on the grass!
Favorite Story: There are to many to list. So many great people and places. The vast majority involved in the Disc Golf community is like that of no other sport. Hopefully the love of the game will continue and not be compremised by fortune and fame. Reguardless of how much money people are playing for, hopefully the same reasons they step out on a course today, will be the same driving factors of tomorrow! I play AMs, I don't play for the payout, yet I am and will continue to be out there!
