It almost sound like he said Wash Park or something like that. Might have said Ashe Park.

Left my champ teebird in the fairway yesterday - either hole 15 of cedar creek west or hole 7 of cedar creek east in Fairmont MN. Mostly, I can't believe I made it an entire round without noticing, usually I count my discs after every hole... I don't know how I made it a whole round and a half (depending on where I left it, I don't remember throwing it since hole 15). sigh.

took a trip this weekend (its about 200 miles round trip for me) to play a course that I dont often get to. anyways, I had thrown my tee shot (I had been indecisive on the tee because of the wind and taken two discs out) it was a good shot and was walking to where it landed when my phone rang so i set my bag and disc down to get it out. answered the phone and picked up my bag and left the disc. I didnt realize it until about 8 holes later when I needed it off of another tee.

I had seen two other guys tee off at the start by this time so I figured they would call me if they got to it before I finished or I would just go pick it up (they were a little shady though). So I finished and walked back towards where I left it and noticed that they were past where I had left it. (by this point I had parked my car in front of theirs so they couldnt get out and memorized their plate number. I approached them and saw one of them slip it back in their bag real quick. Asked them if they had seen it, and the one who had it said no. I could still see it sitting in their bag with my number on it and told them it was there. the same kid still replied he didnt have it.

at this point i was getting frustrated so I told them I knew what car they were in, repeated their plate numbers and told them I had parked them in. the kid who hadnt said anything at this point was getting real nervous so I assumed he was the driver. I could tell they had been smoking something that wasn't legal and played off of the driver being nervous. I told them I wasnt afraid to call the local police and perform a citizens arrest which would garuntee that their car would get searched. at that point the quiet one just started yelling at his friend to give me my disc back...which he did and I went on my marry way just happy to have my champion panther back which was my first every mid and I still use it all the time.

not a lost disc story totally, but I cant believe how bold some people will be.

saturday morning, about 8:30 am, i lost my one and only striker before the leagues round. later that day, about 4:30, someone called and said they found it.

so i guess not everyone sucks at RLW but most people will just keep your shizz if they find it.

Sadly, I think that's how it is almost everywhere now

I'm one of probably 10 people who play shorewood park and will call when I find a disc.
