Here's one, today I lost a disc in an empty field. I didn't forget it, I found it once and then walked a bit to scope out where I was going to throw to next. When I turned around to go back for it I couldn't find it anywhere. I must have spent an hour looking all together. I have no idea where it could have gone.

important disc

Yesterday in greenway park, Beaverton, Or, I lost my favorite driver, A red champion monarch. This disc was extreemly important to me. I lost it on hole 4, probably in the bushes along the left or right side. ANYONE WHO RETURNS IT WILL BE REWARDED!! My name and # (503-554-0326): are on it. Thanks

Lost Comet - Steeplechase Park, Kyle TX

Lost a Comet on hole 16 at Steeplechase today
I'm a new player and am trying to use that disc as my main disc to help me diagnose release issues as well as using it to learn to drive farther.

The hole was a 400+ ft hole that went over a creek with overhanging trees. Of course I hit a tree and it dropped straight into the creek. It was a forest green disc and was impossible to even see in there, plus it was getting dark. Name and phone number were on it so im hoping it gets returned. If not, well I guess it gives me an excuse to buy some Elite Z plastic.

I feel your pain. Lost my first comet, a nicely beat blue Elite-X, on hole 17 at Schumaker Pond a week or so ago. Had a crappy drive, early tree, and had a ~100 ft. tunnel approach to try to save par. Flicked the Comet at it, flipped to flat beautifully, cruising right at the basket. But darn Comets, they have such great glide!! Kept cruising, flew about a foot and a half over the basket. Faded right into a gap in the tree line right into the pond. I'm guessing 30-40 feet out.

i'd be willing to bet that if you threw a roc, you'd still have your disc

Yep. Because it would have hit a tree instead of going right at the basket like comets are so lovingly designed to do.

I still have a small roc stash but the Discraft koolaid has been tasting pretty good so I think I will keep drinking it.
