Oddities in Disc Flight

Hey guys,

Today on my lunch break I was out throwing some practice shots. I shanked my Teebird into the wind and it blew Over a chain link fence on the perimiter of the field I throw on.I went to retrieve it and throw it back onto the field and my disc hit the fence about a foot below the top.

Instead of dying and dropping to the ground, my disc remained in motion and spun over the fence! All from about 150ft away.

Have you ever seen one do this or any other extremely odd things?

Break out the stories.

I had a putt at lincoln ridge park on hole 23. i was 15 feet away and my putt hit center chains and a huge gust of wind came and held my disc in place for about 3 seconds and then blew it out of the basket. i ended up taking a 4 on the hole.

A buddy of mine threw a dart for a long putt, maybe 45 ft out. Anyways it came up short and hit the ground about a foot short of the basket. As soon as it hit the ground it bounced straight up hit the chains and bounced out. Strangest thing I think I have ever seen.

I can't see it at work, but I'm assuming it's the wind putt that ends up behind him.

For only the next minute or so, nothing really crazy happens after that hole.
