practicing for the tournament

Sunday Rob Stewart, Ian Guldner and I went to Lehigh U’s fields to practice for a long distance tournament. We spent nearly 2 hours throwing almost anything in our bags. We started with 90% size Voyagers and then moved on the full size Voyagers (phenolic, fiberglass and even carbon fiber), Milpas Reapers and even an Uwe Kitzberger shape. Toward the end I broke out 2 large size plywood Voyagers and we tested and tuned them. It was an great day together.  I had my camera along and shot some slow motion video of our throws. For us it is interesting to see what we are doing so we can improve our mechanics. Ian was throwing LD for the first time today and he was releasing rather high. I had one throw that I threw into the ground. Anyway, if you have nothing to do, scoot on over to youtube, search for user “bvdrangs” and watch some. I uploaded 16 from Sunday, all in slow motion.
