I have a teebird that matches this.

Lost a day-glo Champion Destroyer on hole #11 at Acorn Park in St. Paul/Roseville on Saturday. Threw it because I wouldn't be too upset about losing it in the snow. I lost it in the snow.

Enjoy it whoever finds it!

I've thrown perfect shots that have slid into the snow. Nothing worse than losing a disc that you know landed close to the pin. The joys of living in MN.

Threw my Zero Mercy too far on hole 6 at Fort Yargo state park. It's a short hole, downhill, with a steeper slope after the basket, and then the lake. Anyway, I wrist rolled, and it turned over, and kept going, and going, and going, and hit the fence right by the water, and rolled in. There's a good maybe 10 foot drop from where the fence is, with just water at the bottom, so I didn't get it back. I could see it, I should get a Golden Retriever -w-

I cannot read this entire thread, so I have absolutely no idea if anyone feels the same as me. Here is my story. Coming up here in April will be my first full year of Disc golf. I have always got the impression that most disc golfers want their disc back, and I started off with this mentality. I always wanted my lost disc returned. Then as months went on and I started losing more and more disc. I realized this is a part of the game.. plastic comes and goes. So I asked myself why get so attached. For me the answer was clear, absolutely no point in getting attached to a disc. Someday it's going to either get lost or so badly beat in that you will have to retire it anyways. it's too easy for me to walk into a store and find another perfect match.. even if it isn't broken in.

Lost Disc's: So above I realized disc will come and go. In the beginning I wrote my name and number on all my disc, and I still do to this day... sorta out of habit, and partially because the impression I have always got is that disc golfers want their disc returned, and that most of them that have found a lost disc named or nameless have a guilty concise problem.. where it eats at them if they feel they aren't doing the "right thing". So yes I have my name and number on my disc, but it's always so that you can call me, and I can tell you congrats, enjoy the new plastic, thanks for "doing the right thing". It helps people sleep at night knowing they did "the right thing". I personally don't like it this way. I love playing disc golf. I respect that I will lose lots of disc in my "career". I also want people to enjoy something like I do, which is the feeling of finding a new disc. I love being able to say to people enjoy the new plastic. I wish more disc golfers felt this way. One of the main reasons I like to find and keep lost plastic is it often gives me the chance to throw something I would have never picked up on my own. I truly wish the mindset on lost disc changed a bit.. so many disc golfers make disc finders out to be criminal, just absolutely ridiculous. Even for people who specifically go out of their way to find lost disc, I have nothing against those people. If you left it for any of these reasons: 1. couldn't find it 2. went in the water 3. accidentally left it behind 4..... Then JUST MOVE ON, it's part of the game, it happens. Let someone else have a gift, and an exciting day. Who knows maybe your lost disc made someone else so happy that they had shot under par, or aced a hole, or cheered them up. I just think this whole lost disc situation is insane.

P.S. I lost 2 Disc's today. My star roadrunner, and my westside VIP King. Both of those are gifts to whoever get them. Both of them are in water. One is at Little Lehigh Parkway in the water on whole 3 here in PA, and the other is at Jordan Creek, PA, on whole 7 in the pond. If you get them ENJOY! I hope it makes your day. P.S. if you were to go to hole 7 at Jordan Creek with a lake rake you could probably land yourself over a 300 disc... if you spent a whole day there. The pond eats up disc, but the upside is a lake rake does work there. For some odd reason no one gets disc out of this pond... a true treasure chest for anyone willing to scuba in it haha. The dgcourse review for the course recommends players just leave their disc behind on this hole if swallowed up by the pond.. My guess is you could open an entire store if you drained this pond. This pond is not that big, or deep.. just people seem intimidated by it.
