 A request from PAR-TWO
Please consider adding http://www.par-two.com to your Yahoo! profile's Cool Link section and any other website you have.
 Volunteer to be a PAR-TWO Hometown Rep.
This is an unofficial position.  I am looking for one or two people from each city or general area to help promote disc golf.  A major city like Columbus could possibly have 4 reps within it.  A PAR-TWO rep would be responsible for organizing local publicity events.  It should take only a few hours a week and half of that time should be near recreational.  Let me know if you are interested and we will exchange emails. jimm@par-two.com



 Update YOUR Information
Let PAR-TWO know what CITY and STATE you live in and disc golf in.  This will help us send you content that you are interested in.
 Make other athletes aware of disc golf!

We are in 102nd place with 26,000 points!  That makes our pace to finish the month with 32,240 points. 

Visit our site each week when you receive the newsletter.  If we get to the 60,000 point mark we will be in the top category for eTeamz monthly contest!  Even if we don't win, we do win, disc golf will be recognized by millions of athletes!

Each week when you receive this newsletter take 10 seconds and visit PAR-TWO and then click on the "Tips and Drills" section.  Then feel free to visit the rest of the site. 

If everyone receiving this newsletter would just visit the site we would have over 35,000 points each month. Add visiting the "Tips and Drills" section and our total would skyrocket to over 182,000 points per month which would DEFINITELY get disc golf noticed by the millions of athletes at eTeamz.

eTeamz also awards three monthly prizes.

  • One for sites between 20K and 40K points.
  • One for sites between 40K and 60K points.
  • One for sites over 60K points.

Any prize won will help the growth of disc golf.

"How do I learn to snap the disc harder to get more distance?"


One exercise you can do is snap a towel, like cracking a whip.
