The Vibram Birdie Bash – Harrison Road Edition

The Harrison Road Vibram Birdie Bash was a big success! We had a big time and made a little money for the club. As the Tournament Director, I had fun – this in spite of the heavy mantle of responsibility I carried. The reasons I had fun was: 1) everyone had a “what can I do to help attitude?”, 2) I played rounds with fun people, and 3) I was throwing discs.

After swearing an oath of allegiance to Vibram discs, we began to play. Players chose two Vibram discs ( a putter and something else) and these were the only discs we were to throw in the tournament. I had never thrown anything but Vibram putters before, so I was surprised how much I liked my Vibram Trak (fairway driver). I found the Trak to be very easy to control, felt good in hand, and threw farther than I anticipated. My putter choice was a Ridge – which is my normal putter currently. The new Ridge was scared of the chains and hasn’t been taught to enjoy the chains like my old putter, so I had some frustrating moments where I wasted great drives to poor putting – like that has never happened before…

When you look at the group photo you will see that Vibram sent everyone very bright and unique discs. It was pretty funny because they were so bright and unique that they all looked alike – without our names in them I am certain we would not have ended up with the discs we started with.

I think we all won because it was a really fun day of disc golf. Charlie and Colin won the champion’s discs. Colin also won a CTP backpack and the Spirit Award Disc. The Spirit Award celebrates disc culture and everyone exemplified that at our Birdie Bash. Colin was voted this award by an overwhelming majority. A typical example of Colin’s Spirit Award attitude was when he shanked his third drive in a row into the woods off of the #17 tee box, Colin’s response was: “this will be a great opportunity to test my skills”. Colin is a special disc golf player (and person). He is proudest of his Spirit Award disc, and I am really glad that Colin chose to come play in our Birdie Bash.

There are Vibram Birdie Bash events coming up in Milan and at Muse Park in Jackson – perhaps we will see you at one of them?

  2. Good show! One of our local Bashes got snowed on HARD. It was scary driving out to the course, and my toes froze hard after a couple of warmup throws (one of my buddies reminded me that there is no bad weather in Colorado, only bad clothing). I sheepishly took off after collecting my discs and T Shirt. Oh well. I’ll keep warming up until next year…
