Lost a X-out champ firebird that rolled off a ledge into a swamp 3 weeks ago. Played the same hole yesterday and threw a buzzz with way too much anny on it that went over the same edge. While looking for my buzzz I found the firebird and the buzzz! What a great day.

I hit my first ace ever in a mini and then birdied the next hole tk which my buddy says "You barley ever see anyone birdie a hole after an ace" so feeling cocky I step up and throw my favorite buzzz right into the creek. found it 3 weeks later when my buddy was showing off this "awesome new buzzz he got in the used bin" which I then bought back from him. kept it for 5 more months then lost that disc along with my favorite destroyer at selah ranch on a weekend trip. found the buzzz in a used bin 4 months later a week before returning to selah. then while creek walking between rounds my buddy found my destroyer I lost 4 months ago. now the world is right again! although I think I should just retire the buzzz now

A course near me called Round Barn Farm opened last Monday, and is the only course around me to offer some big legitimate water hazards, I've already thrown 4 discs in the pond

Today I've lost a Tie-Dye Champion Starfire on the left side of hole 16 at the Ellicott Creek Park course in Tonawanda NY. I've lost two Tie-Dye Champion Beasts (in the creek on hole 5 and in the Water on hole 15) all discs should have Carney written on them as well as my number. I have return 3 discs this year so hopefully that gives me some good karma and I get to throw those discs again!

I've lost 2 discs this season. I lost my favorite driver, a bright green Pro Destroyer, about halfway down on the left side of the Barry Schultz hole at Standing Rocks. I was just about to give up when I found a tie-dyed Discraft driver, no ink.

A month later, on hole 5 at Parkside, I sliced my pale yellow Champion (which means invisible) Sidewinder into some thick brush on the right side of the fairway. 4 of us looked for a solid 30 minutes before I called it. As I'm coming out of the woods I find a Pro Wraith, also with no name. Now it's my new favorite driver.

Then last week on hole 10 at Parkside I sliced that same Wraith so far off the fairway it went over a small creek. I knew it was gone, but I couldn't give up without looking. After about 10 minutes I find a bright green Star Starfire. I count myself lucky that, for the third time this year, I found a disc on the same hole that I lost a disc, so I head out of the rough. I damn near stepped on my Wraith on the way out!

So I have lost a couple of discs this season, and if anyone happens across them on those courses and happens to call me I'll be grateful, but I count myself fortunate enough to have worked out some bizarre trade system with the disc golf gods.

I usually consider that if I was unlucky enough to throw a disc somewhere off course, then someone else probably has also. So if I wander into the woods and find mine, I'll spend a few extra minutes looking around the area. I've found quite a few discs this way.

Sent my favorite River over the basket and into the think briars on the 13th hole at Catamount Links. Friend and I looked for 45 minutes but ran out of light.

I'm headed back out first thing in the morning with a machete and a shovel.

Before today I have lost 5 discs.....mostly just stock dx stuff... had one returned and have returned or tried to return at least 6. This morning, sadly, I lost my first dyed disc At least it was my own dye so I can re-create it. And it's kinda hard to be too upset about losing a disc that we got to stand and watch fly for what seemed like forever on a long down hill shot. We estimate it covered at least 900' of the signature 1000' #18 on the Black Course at Grand Vue (Moundsville, WV) before vanishing down the ravine to the right of the fairway. Much to steep and dangerous to go after so I doubt I'll ever see it again but if you should find yourself down the ravine about pin high on that hole be on the lookout for my star roadrunner

Same thing happened to me on that hole, and I eventually found that it had hit the pine needles, stood up, and rolled down the hill into, then across the street ... found it up the front yard a little ways.
