Any other hobbies?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I do a lot with music in my spare time, as either a board member for our school's music association, or as a musician myself. Currently working on an interstate internet EP with two friends - me in MA, my bass player/lead guitarist in NH, and our singer in CT.

I've gotten back into biking recently as well. I raced BMX as a kid and I've been cruising around the past few months. I'm slowly building up to my first 20mi ride.

I absolutely love to bowl. I am in a league with my dad and this season carried a 209 average. 

Sports both watching and playing are both an important part of my life. I also really enjoy kayaking, hiking, and fishing.

I play a lot of basketball normally and just love to keep active.  Many of the guys I play with either played at small D1 schools or DII basketball so competition is high and keeps me "in shape'.  For instance, a league I played in recently had a former Purdue starting guard on the team (Ryan Cline).

You've got some fantastic waters around you.  Have you ever fished Warm Springs (Mecca Flats) on the Deschutes for Redsides?  The Salmon Fly hatch (happening now) is crazy fun. Of course, you have to trade pictures taking and golf time... decisions, decisions. 😆

I did a little bit of fishing on the Rogue a few years back.  Just never got into it like I did doing the half pounders on 3 wt 🙂   Oh yeah....I'm also riding my bike when I'm not golfing or out taking pics 😄

I sold my boat so, fishing isn't the thing anymore. I'm a Cabinetmaker by trade, so I don't do much with woodworking outside my job...lol.  I guess discovering new music at this stage of my life is kind of a hobby.

Other than playing golf I refinish old persimmon wood golf clubs and build and restore guitars.

Luthier aye?

How long have you done that? I've played guitar and bass since I was 16.

I wouldn’t consider myself a luthier by any stretch. More an amateur guitar repair tech. It has help me learn more about wood finishes which has helped with my persimmon golf club refinishing.


I’m pretty proud of this LP Jr. I built.

Here's a really rough mix of a song on our upcoming EP. The vocals are a little hot and it's still missing all the backing harmonies, but I'm really proud of how this one's shaping up.

I'm a man of many hobbies. Drives my wife crazy haha. During the nice months I'm golfing or riding my motorcycle, 2006 CBR1000RR. During the rainy months I'm playing my guitar or rebuilding something. I always have to be using my hands or I get into trouble.

I’ve been through a lot of hobbies over the years but it is pretty relaxed nowadays. I like to run on occasion and I read quite a bit. Other than those, working around the house. That’s not much of a hobby though.

My 2 main “sports” are Golf and Pool (Billiards - or to be ultra specific: 9-Ball). I have several cues and ultimately plan to have a table in my garage or on my patio when I build a cover for it. I actually met my wife at a pool hall so she is into it too and has her own cue; though for the life of me she won’t let me give her advice when we play!

I firmly believe that the two games are inter-related. Both have a little white ball you need to hit and play spin to get a ball in a hole and also need to worry about where you leave your current shot to make your next shot easier.

I don’t know if I can even call myself a golfer anymore.

I spend my time looking for fishing spots, and have seriously been considering kayaks for the whole fam.

And that boat thing is still being thrown around, just have to find the right one.

I have forgotten what it is like to actually play golf... maybe I should give it up while I’m ahead?

I enjoy shooting. Few indoor ranges around but have a friend with a good size land that we can shoot on
