Five weeks ago after a heavy rain I threw an 9/10 Lime Green ESP Surge in the Creek on hole 8 at Castle Hayne. First one I threw in in months. The creek was raging from the rain and I could not find it. Go back the next day still can't find it. Looked for that disc three times in total the last time jumping in the creek and walking the area repeatedly. Never found it. I got annoyed and figured somebody found it and kept it despite my number being on it. (people jump in that creek all the time disc hawking). A couple days ago a guy calls me about and brings it by the restaurant I am a chef at. He found it right where I walked in the creek. Unbelievable.

Funny thing is I said it was nearly new because now it looks really old. The stamp is almost completely gone washed away by the water I guess. Still flies like it is almost new, but man does it look beat now haha.

Every time I look at of the window I see the grain field I lost two discs to. Know roughly where they are but it's too far in to retrieve them without hurting too much of the field. In theory if the discs are lying flat and they don't get under the harvester's wheels, they should survive.

But the farmer is taking his sweet time getting around to harvesting and the wait is driving me crazy. I swear the field is mocking me!

I think I'll have a medicinal beer now.

two at kaposia today. first was the premium midari. was throwing very well until i tagged a dead branch sticking out down the fairway on hole 7. popped it nose up and it stalled out; looked for about an hour before i gave up. probably perfectly hidden underneath one of those stupid ******* rhubarb weed things or in the pointless overgrowth in the middle of the fairway.

hole 15, threw my SP tsunami. crushed it; thought the turn was perfect and was honestly expecting it to skip up near the basket . . . nowhere to be found. probably skipped off into the woods somewhere. it was getting dark at this point so i busted out the flashlight app on my phone for about another 30 minutes, got really angry and then left.

Lost my two week old Boss on Chapel Hill's 14th hole on the right side. Darn thing took off like its prone to do, started high and ended high on a pine tree along the tree line a little more than halfway between the tee and basket. I saw it falling and assumed it'd be there when I walked up, but the weeds, ivy, and everything else just swallowed it up. We looked for a good 20 minutes but no luck. The disc was dark blue with a shimmery purple design, and looked like new, which, it was. Of course, the worst part is, I'd already teed off with another disc- I only threw the Boss for practice. It's so stable, especially late, I never expected it to hang up on the right.

Hows this for strange karma......

Played Zobel in Green Lake WI today.

Aced hole 5

Overthrew hole 8 and had to throw a spike hyzer to get around the big pines. Launched a 166 Pro Pig up and over. Saw it hit a pine up high and then lost sight of it as it penetrated in. Grabbed my bag and headed over but looked for 20 minutes to no avail.


If someone finds it and calls me, I'll send you a disc from the Hunter tourney I'm running next month.

Lost a great ESP Nuke and First Run D4 last week playing our newest course before the baskets were installed.

Just threw both of them into waist high grass that completely ate them alive. Spent the better part of 2 hours combing through that damn field before I finally gave up... completely deflated.

Returned to the course yesterday with a friend and he popped into the grass and found my Nuke in a matter of 30 seconds. Took us another 15 minutes but we managed to find the D4 also.

Felt nice to actually find 2 discs that I had written off as gone forever. I've still lost more than I'd care to admit this season, but getting these 2 back was a small victory.

Hole 8 is a Bitch, I have lost two discs in the 6 months I have been playing DG, both on hole 8. One is an LS Polaris that was my go to disc, the other was the replacement disc I found I could throw about the same, a Champ Leopard. Some guy found the Leopard but I have not been able to meet up with him yet. Both were lost in the same exact spot, the turn right before the basket. The Leo went in the water, the LS Polaris just sort of vanished...only fitting that I found it on that hole a few months back

I lost my Tern in a tin horn that runs under the road where I play often. It had my name and number on it. Went home to get some PVC pipe to drag it out...the trip home and back took about 30 minutes. By the time I got back it was gone...Think the two db's playing behind me got it out somehow. It must have been 25 feet inside the horn...

My Boss has been hanging up on me lately. Granted mine is older than two weeks... I have been throwing it for a few years so I'd guess it is just beat in.

Just got SOOO lucky!

Played a round with a friend tonight, finished right at 6:30pm. I was supposed to meet my wife close by at 7:00 so I decided to play a partial round real fast so I didn't use my new Nexus 7 tablet for scorekeeping like I usually do, just kept a mental tally as I went.

Ended up playing the whole course anyway and hurried to meet my wife and take my punishment for being late (I was having a decent round!) Got home and a guy who I had met on the course last week whose number I had saved in my notes app texted me and said someone on the course had called him and said they found my tablet near hole 11! Holy cr@p, I hadn't even noticed it was missing!!! He gave me their number and I called them right away, luckily they were still at the course and said they would wait...

Grabbed my wallet and stack of extra/"need to sell/trade" discs and busted my butt over to the course. Ended up being a couple of teenage guys, I gave them all the cash I had ($15) and let 'em each pick out a disc (one got a Champ Katana in almost new condition I found a few weeks ago, the other took a Lat64 Core that was also in very nice shape that I just never got a feel for.)

Finding a $15-20 disc and calling is one thing, finding a $230+ tablet and finding the only phone number stored anywhere in it and calling to try and track down the owner!?!??! Above and beyond and kinda restored my faith in humanity a bit...

I've called on every disc I've ever found, including the Champion Boss I found at the other course I played earlier today, meeting him tomorrow to return it!
