Last summer I hoisted a nine meter tree branch over my head, barely able to hold it straight up and steady. It is often difficult to find anything to dislodge a stranded disc. When a huge, fallen tree branch lay next to the unconscionably tall tree that ensnared my midrange, I used the branch. Remember "no visible disc left behind".

Weirdest that I've ever seen had to be a course in Oklahoma City called Woodson Park. This place is in the barrio. First let me say that it is a confusing course. They move around the holes. There are concrete tee pads with numbers painted on them. There are also signs and numbers on the baskets, but none of these MATCH. That wasn't that weird, but I threw a disc into this big open cedar tree that had a homeless guy temporarily LIVING in it. He gave me back my disc. He had clothes and everything INSIDE this tree. He was also drinking on a case of beer.

Weirdest Round ever

This happened a few weeks ago at Vista Del Camino in Scottsdale, AZ. I was playing the back nine, it was hole 15 or 16, but anyways, theres a concrete jogging path on the left side of the fairway, with joggers and bikers always walking down it. Just left fo the path is a big blue trashcan, thats always in the same spot about 200 ft past tee.

So I tee off LHFH but the champ beast snaps out of my hand a little early and flys off a bit to the left. Meanwhile, a man on a bike is riding away from me in the same direction as the disc. I watch in horror as the beast flies right at the back of his head. I'm too paralyzed to even call out, because if he stops and turns around to look at me he'll get blasted right in the face. The disc fades at the last second behind the bike's back tire, and hits the side of the trash can, then bounces back past the bike, passing in front of the front tire. WTF!!! The guy didnt even run over the disc or slow down. It was like watching my life flash before my eyes.

Then, as if the day wasn't weird enough, I throw the Dragon on hole 18 (of course). It shanks hard left over the middle of the lake and dives in at probably a 45 degree angle. No big deal, right- it floats. So I wait. And wait. and wait. And throw the claw out after it. No dragon. It never floats back up anywhere on the lake.

At my home course here in Tennessee (Sharp Springs) there are a number of small pavilions that people grill out on. Only one is close to the DG course and it sits on a hill about 30 yard away from the tee on hole 15. Hole 15 is a 280' downhill throw from a tee that is elevated about 30-40 feet above the pin. It is a pretty nice vista shot. Well, there was a group at the pavilion. A local group of special olympics children. They were armed with kites. Three children, each with a kite, decided to run in front of us and down the hill while we were on the tee. I almost seperated my shoulder as I was in mid-drive but I held onto that disc. They got all the way past the hole when the teacher called them to come back, so they ran back across the hole and when they got about 30 feet away from the teacher they did an about face and ran away from her again. They must have thought this was a fun game because my buddy and I sat on the tee and watched this for about 30 minutes. They would run away, the teacher would call, they would come back to about 30 feet of the teacher and then run away again. The teacher actually got fed up with the kids and told us to throw anyway. We just skipped the hole. In retrospect we should have done that earler instead of waiting for 30 minutes, but it was a nice day.

Into the highway

I was playing Rosland Park last a few weeks ago. The wind caught my tee shot on hole #4 and carried my disc into the highway. Luckily it didn't hit any cars. While I was walking to the tee pad on hole #5, I heard a loud noise, and turned to see a my disc rolling down the highway after a moving van ran it over. The disc about 100' feet along the highway to the fence bordering the course. So, after all of that, I got my disc back.

I did something similar at Moraga Commons Park in CA. The course plays on some large hills and one of the later holes runs parallel to a fairly busy street well below the hill on the right side of the fairway. I threw my drive and the wind just took hold of it and decided to take it straight down towards the road. My heart sank and I didn't even want to watch as it went down as I was anticipating screeching brakes at any moment.

When the screeching didn't come I made my way down there and ended up finding my disc on the other side of the road. I have no clue if it made it over there without actually going into the road or not but I was just happy I didn't cause an accident and that I actually found the disc.

Gran Canyon Fox

So down in Brooksville,FL before the Gran Canyon course was closed I was playing a warm up round before a tourney. Somebody in a group ahead had a disc stolen by a Fox, who picked it up and ran off just to drop it about 500' away.

One sly fox....

Also in Sarasota at Water Tower park during an A-Tier I went to clear my thoughts just off to the right side of the Pad in the Palmetto's and almost stepped on two people, 1 was completely naked and the other was sparsly clothed, they were just sleeping in the nice FL sun...
