Hey Tyler and Julie!
I set the Frisbee down for long spurts. So long I won’t write about it yet. Lately I’ve been hanging out with my cool dogs Taco and Aroo at Tanglewood park. Out of the blue came this way cool girl named Julie. Julie helped me practice some tricks. She brought a way cool friend to the park with her next time named Tyler. Julie and Tyler have been helping me get back in shape. We are doing it a bit at a time because we have to also watch our dogs closely. These kids have helped me knock the dust off my cool bag of tricks and I am very grateful! If you two made it this far. I’ve put the easy link up to all my you tube videos. I may even load them one at a time here. However, I am right in the middle of re arranging Shane’s Flying Disc Show’s web page. For now that web page bounces here to my photography page. Today is 20200421. I closed my facebook page so I could juggle all of my videos from Vimeo around. That only makes sense if you understand I put a lot of effort in my Facebook page. I re-united over 450 of my old High School friends and that wasn’t easy. I did something wrong by posting some cuts of the National news on Vimeo and I knew better, but I cut the video from the TV and posted it. So I got booted off of Vimeo. I have no excuses, I did the wrong thing. But my web page as a whole is a bit torn up right now because I embedded a lot of my videos that I did on my own to Vimeo. I’m going to leave it in a mess just in case they re-instate the links. In the meantime here are a bunch of how to links on youtube. Then I’ll post a portion of some tricks you can practice like I was trying to show you today to see how it looks.
Here is a series of Freestyle tricks to work on. I took this from the set of youtube videos from the link above.
Here are some Mini tricks for kids Julie’s age.
Here are some Mini tricks for a large audience of kids that are more Tyler’s age. My friend Tyler is just now entering Middle School and picks up on my tricks very quickly. So does Julie!
Here are a few throws we will work on!
I can’t resist this one. About 33.42 I hit a basket from full court on the tenth shot. People liked that as much as anything, especially in Kentucky and North Carolina because they like watching things go through the hoop! This is the large portion of a 45 minute to an hour demo that I did three times a day. One day I did this seven times! That was seven times in six different cities with set up and tear down of a large PA system!
THANK YOU JULIE AND TYLER!
YOU TWO MADE ME FEEL IMPORTANT AGAIN!
Julie, I just remembered. Some of the music I used on my Conneaut Lake Park (CLP) videos was from a musician and producer named Quincy Jones.
Ju Ju Julio Julie got to me today. She took off back to Kentucky! Girls from Kentucky are good at trashing my heart. Good thing is she might come back to visit.
X-DISCS FORMERLY KNOWN AS PYRA-DISCS!
Special thanks to Scott Thompson! Scott is the creator of the X-Disc! I’ve had more fun with X-Discs than I can put in words. Using this Disc is an ideal way to bring in a crowd and put a smile on someone’s face!

Maggie, But what do you really do for a living?
I could randomly be seen running around the front page of newspapers and sneaking into TV studios “Spinning” The dialing for dollars wheel! After all, The wheel does look like a Flying Disc! You mentioned Ohio before your Pizza date but I thought you might get a kick out of this.

Then the cutest little girl in the park said
“Throw it over here OLD MAN”
I KNEW I STILL HAD MY TOUCH!

Rick Baughman, above left, is one of the most talented athletes I ever met. He is also fun as all hell! This shot may be 1995ish.
Scott Thompson of XDISC, https://xddisc.com/, triggered a great memory of one on the most talented athletes I ever met. To the far left is Rick Baughman. My 12 hour workday stacking furniture was done. It is time to play. To the normal player you might think I’m about to take his head off with the disc. However this T. Tuck or curl is designed to throw the disc a short distance as hard as you can from the ankles up in a complete rotation of the body to generate maximum ZEEZ! If that photo is a little crooked I’m going to leave it like it is. We were a little bent like that!
Shane often made the front page News or the evening news kickers! The only problem traveling from town to town before the internet was born was keeping up with all the news articles! Shane would be four hours down the road by the time the front page hit the press!
