Paul Levasseur

1. When did you start playing disc golf? 2016

2. What is your favourite disc golf memory? I was playing at Douglas Park with Emma and had my dog Ava tied to me.  We were just coming up on hole 11 when we saw the local pros playing a card.  I believe it was Chris, Dan, JR and Evan.  They offered to let us play through.  We took them up on it and I lined up to take my shot.  I was a little nervous not to mess up with these guys all watching.  I used my destroyer and flicked a real hard low shot out into the fairway.  It skipped up really hard and to my disbelief smashed into the chains for my first ace.  We all erupted into cheers.  I was jumping in the air cheering.  Ava was tied to me the entire time and she had no idea what all the commotion was about.  I ran up to the guys and high fived them all.  It was unreal.  To this day it's been my favourite disc golf memory.  I've been hooked on the sport ever since.  My profile photo is of this moment. 

3. What is your favourite disc? Innova Destroyer

4. What is your favourite hobby outside of disc golf? I used to do Jiu-Jitsu up until I wrecked my knees.  These days I enjoy playing Settlers of Catan online.  I also enjoy designing stuff in Sketchup.
