My son and I played a couple of rounds of eighteen hole disc golf at a hard course south of us. I did alright with a +11 losing the round to my son who had a +8. On the second round I had a personal best score of +4 and won.
Neither of us lost any discs but I came awfully close. It took us some time to find one of my throws that went off into the woods and got stuck in a bush. I also forgot my midrange disc on the island hole but my son ran back and got it for me.
The island hole on this course is really tough - I took a bogie the second round and a double bogie on the first. My son scored an eight on the hole the first round. (He was not very happy and wanted to restart the round.)
If you can't make it on the island from the tee you have to go to the drop zone. If you miss from the drop zone you have to keep throwing until you establish a position on the island. You really don't want to miss short because each throw adds a penalty stroke if it lands out of bounds and your stuck throwing again from the drop zone. If you miss long you can establish a position on the island by flying over it and put your marker on the island three feet in from the out of bounds line. I didn't know this at first and have had lots of trouble with the hole.
I'm going to read up a bit more on island holes just to make sure I know the rules. I'm wondering a bit about if you could establish a position on the island off the tee by throwing over it or if you would still go to the drop zone unless the disc came to rest on the island.

Here's a link to a video with some very good information on how technology and changes in social structures can help the climate situation. I found it very uplifting. It is a summary of some analysis done by another group who have created a free book on the material. I've downloaded the book and are reading the material now.
