it can be challenging to learn to throw well, but anyone can practice and pick it up semi-quickly
Walter Frederick Morrison invented the frisbee.
Frisbee is always capitalized. It's a trademark
A plastics disc that is aerodynamic and can fly in the air when thrown.
The frisbee was a pie dish back then. It was highly entertaining and then came the more areodynamic and slicker designs. It was highly popular and an enjoyable toy to play with for all ages.
There was a company in Connecticut known as the "Frisbie baking company" that made pies. College students would use the pie tins to toss to one another, which eventually led to them being called Frisbees.
figuring your repairs are that it is tacoed (disc is bent up) what i do is i lay it down on a flat surface, rim touching the surface, and put some havy books on it. it flattens it down to normal after a day
The original Frisbees were pie tins from pies from the "Frisbie baking company."
keep the disc flat faced (if you were holding it and looking at the rim it would not be tilted) and when you release point your hand to where you want it to go in the finish. also, snap your wrist to make it spin when you release
None of those were invented at the time, but there is no information that says they might have made something like that.
wham-o and ultrastar are the big brands. there are also frisbee golf discs blehm blehm blehm
That depends on power, wind, and technique
They have momentum from the spin and power you put in it, and the shape makes it easy for the wind to carry it.
Back in the 1950 and a bit after heaps.....but now not much, technology is much more entertaining.
you can throw any type of pass as long as you don't travel
It really would depend on who's throwing it.
In my opinion, the FLashflight is the best light up frisbee. I LOVE my Flashflight! It uses LED's to illuminate fiber optics, which make it bright, but not obnoxiously bright like competing products. And, it's not cheesy disposable junk because first, it's made of durable plastic, and second, it's...
They were known as "Frisbies" due to the pie company that made the tins they originated as.
The first Frisbees were aluminum pie pans made by the Frisbee pie company of Connecticut. They did not have a name. Teenagers would toss the pie pans around for fun. Eventually, a toy manufacture saw the teenagers tossing the pie pans around, and came up with plastic circular discs that could be...
A discus, used in Olympic games a while back. It is called a discus because it is in the shape of a disk.
The company that currently designs Frisbees is Wham-O. Before Wham-o, the Frisbie Baking Company sold pies with tins that kids could toss around. later on, Walter Morrsion made a plastic design of the pie tins. He sold the rights to the Frisbee to Wham-O, who currently sells them.
Pretty much the same as now, a plastic disc. They used pie dishes as well before.
The heat would make the frost melt.So the plow would come out and run over Mrs.Frisby's home while Timothy has pnemonia and can't leave or he will get worse.
When you first catch the disk, you are only aloud to take momentum steps, like if you were running and then caught it. Other than that, you only have a pivot foot, and cannot walk with the disk in your hands.
No..... There are many discussions on who invented the hula hoop (if you type it in google) but the inventor of frisbees is Walter Frederick Morrison.
backhand, forehand, scuber, hammer, push pass, and chicken wing.
Walter Frederick Morrison invented the frisbee.
"Frisbee" is Frisbee in French because Frisbee is a trademark name.
It's invented by Walter Frederick Morrison.
Frisbee because that can go with the wind and fly with it.
whichever way the endzone he needs to score is
If playing ultimate, then stop running and throw it
Pluto Platter, Mars Platter and Flying Saucer
a stack is when the offense or defense line up vertically or horizontally and then break off in separate directions in order to catch or block the disc
Depends how much power you out in the throw.
Los Angeles by Frederick Morrison
Spin, wind, power---areodynamics.
A liquid fills up the container to the shape of the container. The particles in a liquid are close together but can still move past one another.
catching and throwing the disc, being on good defense, spirit of the game, etc.
The "Pie tin," because that is how the Frisbee was discovered. Also, "pluto platters" because that was what they were named before Wham-o bought them.
Wham-o started making them in 1957.
Handler (people that normally throw the disc) Midfield, and long (person in the way back)
toss the disk to your teammates until you get to the touchdown zone, but the disk cannot hit the ground, or else it is a turnover
well, the frisbee was invented in 1957, so i would figure since then.
Yes, because an object would decrease the lift wind would give, so there would be less distance
Yes because the object will either weigh the disc down or change its proportion, causing it to fly differently.
it really doesn't matter how long your arms are, it is all in technique, power, and wind.
Walter Frederick Morrison
wham-o made them in 1957
That depends on wind, strength, throw type, and technique
It is a classic toy, sport, easy to use, and has been around for over fifty years
you can use two hands and "pancake" it, which is catching with one hand in the bottom middle of the disc and one on the middle top of the disc. or, you could reach your hand out and grab it by the rim
The captain usually goes to decide with the other captain who pulls and from where, other than that they are the same as everyone else
Ken Westerfield (born May 23, 1947, Detroit Michigan) is a hall offame, Frisbee (disc) Champion. Westerfield produced tournaments,touring freestyle shows and world records. Westerfield was one ofthe first freestyler's and a top competitor in all of the Frisbeediscipline's. Source: Wikipedia/Ken...
In 1871, the "frisbie baking company" opened and made pies. Teens would use the pie tins to toss to one another. In 1948, Walter Morrison made a plastic version of the pie tins. They were known as "Pluto Platters." In 1957, the company "Wham-O" patents the discs as Frisbees. Today, the discs...
yes, Frisbee is a trademark
yes, Frisbee is a trademark name
Wrist muscles are the main, if not only, muscles used to catch a disc. Some forearm muscle may be used.
when it hits the ground (ka-chunk!)
The most important aspect of the Frisbee is that, unlike other sporting objects, the Frisbee actually flys
Walter Frederick Morrison
yes, you put in force to throw the disc, and the disc flies away (motion)
Walter Frederick Morrison
Frisbee is a trademark name by Wham-O
The reason for this is because of the low drag in the flying rings,and air is pushed up easily through the middle. The wider themiddle, the better. In a Frisbee, there is much more drag, and inorder for it to go farther, you have to have a strong hand.
First curve the frisbee into you chest line up the tip to your target and flick your wrist outward and release
for entertainment, or if you're like me, you can use it to carry stuff in, food plates, or umbrellas.
yes as naval aircraft designs from Germany or UFO's
Pull your wrist back and quickly snap it forward in the direction your throwing the Frisbee, releasing the disc about halfway through the snap.
1957 is when Wham-O first started selling them as actual discs
you didn't really finish your sentence, but you should aim at who you want to throw it to.
The shape of a Frisbee is a disc, with an airfoil cross-section. Aswith aeroplanes, this airfoil shape generates lift as it movesthrough the air.
so it can fly in the wind and achieve distance
They were discovered in 1938 but accually started selling as a mechandise in 1948.
i would say the three most popular throws are backhand, forehand, and a hammer. The backhand is the typical throw everyone knows, the forehand is just like the backhand except there is a different grip and you don't cross your arm over your body, and the hammer is like a tomahawk over your head. The...
The story is that some kids were tossing around a pie tin around and the idea was kicked off into the frisbee we know today
There was an old company known as "Frisbie Baking Company." They made pies and kids discovered that using the pie tins they could toss them to each other. Hence the Frisbee.

It impacted mine by giving me a sport to do, helped me make many new friends, kept me in shape, and helped me have fun.
The beginning throw to start the game or the throw after a team scores is call the "pull."
The link below has great discs, custom or pre-made.
You develop hand-eye cordination and you get in shape
On the throw-off, or "pull," if the recieving team does not touch the disc and it hits the ground, it is not a turnover. They pick it up from where it lands and continue play. If the recieving team attempts to catch the disc (therefore touching it) and drop it, it is considered a turnover, and the...
