I've had to retrieve 4 discs from water this week(DX Beast 2x, Ascent, and C-FD) - I have a slow to heal gash on my right(non-throwing) wrist, and a bruised left foot arch for my pains - I did get them back tho....

Found a disc at Lemon Lake White course hole 3 then proceeded to lose my champ green roc deep in the rough on 15. I think Sarah Hokom was watching too

I left a 165 orange/brown recycled river at Lakewood Hills (White Bear Lake, MN) yesterday somewhere on the last 5 holes of the course. I played another round after that and somebody had swooped it up.

My name and number is on it.

Interesting visit to Cera Land yesterday. It's fairly well out in the country, and the fourth stop of the day on a beautiful Sunday road trip with my daughter, so I'm throwing three or four off the first tee as a warm up. By the time I get to the basket, I've got I think five discs on the ground. I thought I'd picked them all up, but when I went to get my yellow star roc+ on hole four, I see it's not in the bag. I backtrack the entire way, and can't find it. I retrace every throw back out to four. No good. I figure one of the little kids at the shelter by hole one must have picked it up.

When I finish the loop, I see a yellow disc at the base of a tree by the first tee, and feel a little better about humanity. But it's not my disc. There was nobody else on the course the whole time I was there, but hundreds of folks on the lake, having cookouts, and what not. I walk over to the shelter to flag down the families over there, and see another yellow disc. Again, not mine. I signal to them to see if they'd misplaced these or found mine. No dice.

I go to the park building to see if I can drop these in a lost & found (& look for mine), but there's nobody home. So if you lost a yellow base plastic disc with no ink out there, just let me know the mold & I'll get it back to you (you've got two chances to guess right!).

And of course, I do reward folks who return mine!

Today I saw that the water level in the river was low so I went out into the mud to look where I thought my Birdie Putter was lost 5 days ago. I slogged around for about 10 minutes before finding it a good 50 feet down river from where I had thought it went stuck half in the mud. Woot!

Playing #8 at Hollywoods yesterday I threw my F2 Glow Leo that flies nothing like a Leo should. Huge skyshot and crashed left into the woods never to be seen again.

About 2 weeks ago playing at Como, NY i lost my Secret weapon over a stream that connected with another stream that turned into a bigger river. Anyways I did NOT want to leave without my Secret Weapon so I have to run along a path to the other side and at this time I had little idea where my disc went in because it went accross about 175 ft of water before it went plummeting in. So with determination on my side and only a slight idea of which bank it might be near I proceed to test the water. The drop off was about 3 feet straight down to water so I had no way in seeing how deep it actually was, and one step later I was on my toes up to my neck in murkey water. So here I am, having to take baby steps with my toes barely touching the bottom... just walking from side to side. and after about 1 minute I step on a disc! hoist it up, and its a beat to hell DX Valk. no name, no number. i proceed to search for my driver and after another minute I find another disc! a DX wraith this time no name, no number. At this time im mapping out a perimiter of where I can walk neck deep and where it drops to deeper water where I cant go, hoping my disc didnt fall into the deeper parts. So im still looking and I feel out another disc! this time its a champ groove! no name no number! and not a minute later I find a star boss! no name no number! so this all took place in about 6 minutes. and im starting to get cold because it was a windy day out and the water wasnt that warm and even if i give up I still made out with 4 discs, 2 of which look brand new. So I give it one more path before I call it quits because remember, I have to take baby steps to go anywhere so I can feel out the bottom. As I approach a place to climb out I step on another disc. By now im thinking "holy **** 5 discs in 10 mins in this one spot?!" and I reach it up with my feet and vuallah! its my purple secret weapon!

Nice. There was one day at Hoyt Grove in Stillwater that my cousin and I found 32 discs in 20 minutes like that. I had lost a Wraith earlier and found another one in that mess of discs. It was fun but I wouldn't jump in there anymore. It was murky and dirty then but now it looks WAY worse.

(shudders) the thought of being neck deep in the nasty water around here makes me gag. It smells so bad! I'm glad you had so much luck!
