Frisbyterians Unite

"We used to say that Frisbee is a religion - Frisbyterians we'd call ourselves"
-- Ed Headrick

The Frisbyterian [Frisbeeterians] 10 Commandments

1. Thou shalt love thy Play more than thy disc.

2. Thou shalt Play with even-mindedness; a balanced spin reaches a target.

3. Thou shalt love thy frisby Play with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. And above and beyond all, love thy frisby-Playing-neighbor/opponent as thy self.

4. Thou shalt make thy self, the Play, the disc, the trajectory, and the catch as one--you ARE your Play.

5. Thou shalt remain open: when a Frisbyterian ready, a disc will appear.

6. Thou shalt have no other objects before discs (i.e. balls, bricks, bats and boomerangs BE-long away from Playing Frisbyterians).

7. Thou shalt love, not kill, with a frisby disc.

8. Thou shalt sacrifice for frisby passover: when a disc spins overhead, offer fresh fruits/juice--never blood-leavened sacrifice.

9. Thou shalt surrender Frisby desires--cease sorrow about Frisby Play (“I’m sorry”; letting go of attachment about play means letting go of feeling “sorry about that throw/catch.”)

10. Thou shalt Play for nothing; in playing for nothing a Frisbyterian plays for everything.
