Let the Games Begin

My boyfriend, Austin, and I are a VERY competitive couple; we always tease each other on who can beat who with any sport or game that we try. Recently Austin spoke very confidently; he was better at sports than me, but I didn’t agree one bit. He bet me to showcase my skills by choosing any game; the winner buys the other McDonald’s coffee. I chose Disc Golf. So, we headed down to Torgeson Park Disc Golf Course to settle the debate.

Disc Golf is a combination of Golf and Frisbee. It is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target. There are 9 Holes at Torgeson Park. To play, you need discs, somewhat of a good depth reception and a competitive attitude. We brought our discs; there are no discs at the park due to the COVID-19 safety regulations. Usually, there are some free for use. We bought ours at Walmart.

I was a bit rusty near the end of the game. I think overconfidence played a part. On a couple of my throws, I didn’t release the disc soon enough and threw it nowhere near the direction it was supposed to.

I was down by three points heading into the last hole, and Austin upped the game; winner takes all. He was up for it! (even though he didn’t have a choice) I ended up beating him by one stroke! Torgeson is such a beautiful Park. If you haven’t been there, I recommend going! Oh, and by the way that McDonald’s coffee tasted even better because it was free!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Madison Colbow
Madison Colbow
I grew up as a hockey player and was away from my hometown, Estevan for a lot of my childhood. I moved out of my family house at the age of sixteen and lived in Weyburn, Saskatchewan with a billet family. After I graduated high school there, I travelled to Calgary, Alberta to study RTBN (Radio Television and Broadcast News) and pursue my hockey career at SAIT Polytechnic. I received my Diploma and decided to continue my hockey career at the University of Saskatchewan. Once the season was over, I realized I missed my home town and wanted to start my adult life in the city I grew up in. After so many years of being away, it is nice to be back with my family, friends and community.
I’m so happy to be home and get to experience the skills I’ve learned along the way with you all.
