Guts Frisbee Wisconsin Guts Championship

You might want to ask me….what is Guts Frisbee, well to the average person, they might inaccurately call it “Frisbee or Disc Golf”, however don’t let a die hard Guts Frisbee player here you categorize it like that. To those folks it is altogether different, Guts is a sport played between two teams of one to five players each. The objective is to be the first team to score 21 points. To start play, each team lines up facing each other 14 m apart. Play is accomplished by a player attempting to throw the disc toward or at the opposing team and within the reach of at least 1 player of that team, in such a manner that the opposing team cannot make a clean catch. Scoring is contingent on the success or failure of the throwing team. A good throw, without a catch, results in a point for the throwing team and a bad throw results in a point for the receiving team.  It seems pretty straight forward, but nothing is ever as simple as it seems, or at least not in my world.  At the Wisconsin Guts Championship to be held at Hatten Park in New London, there will be Team from all over the Midwest, and teams with names like “Appleton Assassins” or “Blame the Dog”, you just wanna check it out.  There is going to be a Players Party Saturday night at The Waters, featuring live music by the ever popular and incredibly talented Mike & Brian Experience from 9 p.m. to 1 p.m., and just in case there are some of you out there who haven’t heard Mike & Brian before, come out and hear them, it is a good time to be sure.  For more information on exactly what Guts Frisbee is and where you can play or how you can get started check them out on the web at www.gutsfrisbee.com.
