Lost a 11x yellow firebird today. Throwing a Tommy on 8 the wind took it and landed somewhere in between 9 tee and 18 tee. That mess in there. Marcus and I looked for over 45 mins for it and never found it. Please if you find it call me name and number is on the back. Also I will give you a disc if you return it. Thank you.
I met some guys who I thought were jerks because I had to pick up their empty beer bottles and carry them up to the trash, but I got an Avenger SS stuck in one of the trees in # 8's fairway at Ber Juan and the one guy climbed the tree and knocked it down for me. Call it a wash.
As noah already knows, Gflap lost an orange star boss and a red r pro aviar in the creek on #18. Please, someone find them before the poacher does. thanks in advance. Reward forthcoming.
I am heading out there today and I will look for you G.
airmc...found (not freaking poached gflapper) your disc while i was playing yesterday just laying out in the field. I'll bring this afternoon if i remember, but regardless you will get it back.
gflapper...."before the poacher does"...lmao
Returning discs is just the right thing...regardless of a reward...it's called doing the right thing...
I don't know how you guys keep losing discs; particularly in wintertime. Stop throwing big bombs blindly over trees or at least use a spotter if you can't resist. That would solve most problems.
The creek is blocked, there is a 2 foot drop clogged with gravel and roots, this could be fixed if you get one of the LC back hoe boys in there for a minute. Or maybe they should not have removed the trees and brush that once kept discs from going into the creek but still punished adequately errant drives on LC 18. I found one in the creek since the bowl (that will be returning to the out-of-town owner) it was 90% buried in silt and barely visible; so if you have one in there you better look closely or bring a dredge as it may be fully buried.
Did everyone get their discs back from the guy I heard dove in Ber Juan lake? Had to be 100 in there. I know I didn't get mine.
Oh well, the game is free to play on almost 100% of courses so its a small price to pay. Guess I'll just have to support the game through new disc purchases. Considering the green fees surrounding little-white-ball golf, its a cheap.
The diver in Ber Juan lake is supposed to be a myth from everything I have heard...and I usually have pretty good sources. There were some firefighter/ rescue team people that did diving practice in there.
The only comment I take issue with is the comment about "stop throwing big bombs blindly over trees". The point of disc golf is to shoot as low a score as you can and just because you don't have the ability to throw that shot doesn't mean it is foolish for others to go after it. The unique thing about our sport is that there is always more than one way to get to the basket...which is great because it caters to many different throwing styles. I am thrilled that you are able to spend so much time searching for discs. I personally prefer to spend my time playing the sport...but to each their own. Please get over your condescending tone towards quality players.
Since I am new Rolla and this club, I am going to try to say as nice as I can. It doesn't matter how deep in the silt, deep in the brush, high up in a tree or just laying on the ground a disc is, if it has a name number or even a PDGA number on it get ahold of them. I know a PDGA # its a little harder but you can at least find out who it is. At my old home course we had two ponds. I ended up throwing an ACE disc and one of my favorite discs in the pond. I stripped down and got in the freezing cold water and couldn't find it. I stayed in there for at least 20 min my whole body was numb. I never got it back since people go in there all the time. I had my name number and 4 other signatures on it.That being said, people do not just throw a disc and leave it there without looking for it for a good amount of time. The other issue is the throwing of big bombs over trees. Well too me that sounds like you don't want to get a better score by taking a risk (with knowing that with my name and number on it someone will return it if I lose it). I throw over the top on 2, 8, and 14 for the soul purpose of trying to birdie the hole.
I hope that in the future if you or anyone else finds a disc with contact info on it it will be used to get the disc back to its owner.
Firebird returned by Chainring. Thank you.
