"knock on wood" I have been able to find my discs so far.. even after climbing 20 ft up a tree or searching for an hour in the thick.. I just wanted to post about one round my GF and I played a couple weeks ago at my home course.. on hole 9 I found a Z Force laying up near the basket that we watched the guys that we let play through throw and almost aced it. They just overlooked that one. So I walked the course and returned it. Then on hole 11 found a DX Leopard with a name and number so we called it and his words were "this is the first time this has happened" on an actual call to return a disc.. then on the same hole found a cheap off brand disc in the basket with nothing on it... I figure I'm in the green on disc karma lol.. but by far the most discs I've found in a single round lol..

If somebody calls you when they find your disc and you just get a voicemail later but they never put it in the lost disc box... is it acceptable to call them two months later and threaten their life? I really miss that disc.

I believe standard protocol is 2 warning texts, then the threats can begin.

Hole 13 @ F. Burton Smith in Cocoa, FL. Somewhat narrow fairway consisting of a park service road with thick foliage on both sides. The fairway has a cabbage palm on the left side of the fairway about halfway down and then another small clump of cabbage palms and brazilian pepper trees a little further down. Basket was in the right side placement which has an area that opens up a bit.

My disc had a nice line down the left side of the fairway and it passed the first cabbage palm to the left side of it and kept going but we never saw it fade right like back across the fairway like it should have. Never heard a noise, never found it in any of the cabbage palms or bushes.. I went back and searched until I ran out of daylight. I came back 2 more times that week to search some more.. Never found it. It pisses me off just thinking about it.

It was inked with my name and of course my ace from hole 4 @ tuskawilla park in Daytona. I have a $50 cash reward out for it.. so far no call. :-(

I was even following my golden rule of never throwing a favorite disc on a risky hole.. Just never occurred to me that I needed to respect hole 13 a little more because apparently you CAN lose one on that hole. *sigh
I lost a disc on #13 two weeks ago. Though I believe extra holes have been added and this 13 is new. It is a narrow fairway with a woodline on the left and a murky ditch on the right. The basket sits up on a small hill at the back of the fairway. Midway down there is a clump of palms that jut out into the fairway on the left, have to keep the flight on the center to right of the fairway to make it to the hole.

A bit of a late release on my part and a Champ Blizzard Beast hit a tree on the edge of the ditch and disappeared in the muck...I think. I don't see it on the opposite bank and no evidence of it disturbing the scum on the water surface. Likely gone forever. I rarely used that disc anyways but it still sucks.

If you hit the murk which we call quagmire. You probably won't ever see your disc again. And if you do, it won't be the same flight or color or.... Odor lol.

And chained wraith... The hole numbers have recently been changed. I think I know what hole you describe but not entirely sure. We have been having a course clean up preparing for a tournament. So I'll keep an eye out for you.

SkinnyArms, have you ever seen the next tee signs at Floral City? They are just small wooden arrows that hang from the bottom of the baskets, probably the pointy end of a 1x2 wooden stake.

The layout at FBS is confusing if you've never been walked through by someone in the know. I took a friend out there Monday for his first time. He kept walking to the "obvious" next tee, which isn't always the case...3 to 4 (next tee sign points to 5 and the tee sign even says 4 on it), 7 to 8, 12 to 13 (when the basket is on the hill), and 20 to 21 (if I recall).

Hanging signs like at Floral would really help in these locations. I would be willing to make these signs provided that they don't interfere with some PDGA rule.

I agree, the tee signs around the brevard east coast area don't offer any help. They also can really mess with your head on the distance as just about everyone is wrong.

Honestly, shoot the president of discalibur an email. My personal opinion is that she has been neglecting the courses that are in the ground to focus on building a new one (which we are not equipped or have the funds for). I'm all for new courses but not at the expense of established courses.

They are hosting the Florida masters tournament at FBS soon, an outside opinion may help get the ball rolling on simple improvements.

Hope to see a good turn out there, and if anyone has lost a disc recently there we have a decent size lost and found pipe building.

While I meet the age limit, I'm far too green to enter. I may drop by to watch though. Maybe park my butt by #7 and watch peeps launch across the water, beer in hand.

I'll shoot her a message about the arrows.

Lost an Orion LS that i threw my first ace with. I left it just sitting on the ground and when I realized what I had done I went back to pick it up and it was gone. Of course nobody in the other groups had seen it. It's gonna be missed! Even had Name/Number/and 1st Ace written on it.
