Last Saturday we had our 2nd annual Christmas Cup Competition. Because we were all at our niece, Jessie's wedding over Thanksgiving we didn't hold the Christmas Cup Competition the day after like we did the year before. I figured we'd just continue it next year. That little glitch did not deter my husband, Jeff Jones. So on December 20th we gathered at Freeman park to continue this new tradition.
As usual Jeff made snack bags for everyone to take with them for sustenance on the frisbee golf tournament.
Some of us weren't sure that the weather would participate, so we came in boots, hats and gloves. Kyle did not wear boots and we learned that that was a mistake because the grass was snowy and a little slushy. He hung in their anyway as did many others.
We ran our first course with various approaches and styles.
These two girls played, but found their own kind of fun in the trees.
When we got back from our first round, Jeff had hot chocolate to warm our bones and we started the car heaters to help people make it through the next part. Jeff matched the couples who played the next round and we were able to play the best throw on each team.
Kyle pretending to be mad because he is tied for 2nd place. Anna and I got matched with the same score of 34. The lowest score was 27 for Jeff and Nathan and Kyle at 28.
We learned a few tricks when we played the second round. 1. If you don't want to soak your gloves every time you pick your disc up out of the snow, then step on the edge so it will flip up. Then hit it on your boot to get the snow off. 2. Bring an extra pair of gloves. 3. Wear a mitten on the left hand and glove on throwing hand. 4. The thicker you look the longer you will last. 5. When you throw the disc into the locked tennis court have a small person sneak under the door to get it. 6. When climbing trees to retrieve your disc, do not wear your nice coat, unless you want to smell like sap for the rest of the winter. 7. Don't wipe your runny nose with your throwing hand. OK, now we're ready to play the final round.
It ended up being so fun in a diehard sort of way and Jeff made it happen. I always say that Jeff is the fun one and it's true.
