I lost a e element in that pond before of the tee, those things have a ton of carry of given the height (and from that altitude the heights already there) that and theres a position for hole 5 right by the pond, its easy to loose them there in that position (I threw two bangers in in one week last time it was in that position)

Sucks to hear that Badlands had that happen. That's the one course I have never feared on a disc snatcher. Now Expo in Aurora is another story. I always wait when I see those punk ass kids near by till they are totally outta range of being able to snag one of my discs. I chased a kid down from hole #2 all the way to hole #8. He jumped off his bike so I took his bike. He told me to give him his bike back I told him to give my disc back he said I foudn it on the ground it's mine I told him I found this bike laying on the ground it's mine, I got my disc back after that.

Bastard.

Hopefully that doesn't happen to you again. When I play any course I just throw 2 drives to start. Specially if it's a blind landing zone. The 1 time I threw 4 I put 2 of them in the Lake behind the swamp on Hole #1, and that lake is NASTY.

yeah thats what I thought about badlands too, its not the best neighborhood, but its not paco ;-) paco the kids ask you for plastic (you should see how happy they get when you give them a trashed lepord or old putter, its worth it)

Yeah I like the kid who tried to play dumb and asks you what you are doing then asks for a disc. I've already given him 2 discs the lasttime I was there I told him dude you know what I'm doing man, I already gave you a couple discs lol.

I've had to yell twice so far on some kids back by #13 and #14 to drop my/group members disc. You gotta watch yoru discs down there for sure speciallly on those back holes.

Yeah, there are some rotten kids at expo. I thought I was going to scrap with them one day after they almost stole the discs I was trying to sell. I would have just thrown the kids bike in the lake and let him fish it out.

When: Last Saturday
Where: Bird's Nest
What: I drive, am within putting range, watch a player on another hole walk up to my disc and pick it up. I yell "Leave it" The guy says, "Oh, I didn't realize it was yours."

If you are on a DC course and see a disc lying near the pin, wouldn't you assume that someone (who is currently standing on the fairway for that hole) threw it?

Bah!

When the element first came out in proto, I order 4 from Dave. I was practicing on a short hole seeing what they flew like. 3 of them parked, and I shanked one of them off into the woods. So I looked for the mis-thrown one for 10 or so minutes (it got caught in a thick evergreen and took me forever to see it), and when I returned to the basket, all 3 were gone. I ended up finding one of them about 6 months later in someone else's bag (along with one of my friend's discs), and I asked why they hadn't called the numbers on the back. They said they had, but no one answered. Sure.
I'm not whining about losing plastic or anything, but if you call the number on the back of any of my discs, I'll normally give you something for your trouble. For example, I've lost my driving wizard at least 4 times in the past 2 years because of water/deep leaves in the fall (almost lost it in the leaves yesterday). I posted a sign on the teepad, and when the disc was found, I gave them a driver or something. They were quite happy with the trade, and I know of one who still uses the disc I gave them. I think if you write "REWARD IF FOUND" on the disc, one may get them back more often.

Yah, I am trying that one right now. I will gladly reward anyone that will return my discs. Even if they are not worth it.

Next I am going to try "if I catch you with my disc I am going to rip out your eye and skull f*ck you to death"...

Ooooooo, somebody needs to make a stamp with that picture...

It would probably be only available in Star, and be a tiny bit more overstable than the Maxx. Or only available in the CFR program, and you have to win a lottery to get the privilege to buy it for $300. :roll:

writing on discs

Postby twmccoy » Mon Nov 06, 2006 11:17 pm

This was written on a disc I found yesterday. "If found, please call number above. If not returned to proper owner may you receive some bad karma. so don't be a bitch and give me my disc back!". This took up the whole bottom of the disc. I don't know what I'll do with this disc, but I won't keep it.
