I lost my beloved White Star Katana at hole 12 at Crockett. It went slightly to the right off the white tee pad. There is a little ponding in that area. It may have went into the water. It should reveal itself as the water pond evaporates. My name and number is on it. Many of you know how I treasure my Katana. So if you should find it, please help it find it's way back home. Thanks!
Played night golf last night at 7Oaks. I always believed it was impossible to lose a disc with a light attached to it. I was wrong.
Orange Groove disappeared on hole 18, in the junk just short and to the right of the basket. Went out again this morning to look for it; sunlight didn't help either. It's named and numbered. Perhaps someone in the tourney this weekend might stumble across it?
Unfortunately I lost my Pro Destroyer at hole 10 @ Liberty on Sunday night. I thought it would be nearly impossible to do so, but I was wrong. It has my number on it if any of the regulars find it. If its still out there it will be to the left of the fairway in the jungle. I spent about an hour looking for it with no luck.

Gregg, Welcome to the forum, BTW.
And it is plain and simple -- You been done wrong. It is obvious that someone found your disc since Sunday. It is your disc. It will never be theirs. No amount of rationalzation will make it anything but a theft.
One of the serendipities of growing a large active club is -- we get our discs back!! We each become educators and ambassadors about the courteous way to play, be good citizens, return discs, and the like.
I think I heard someone say - Ron, sit down. So, I'm thru fussing.
No, not really. The overgrown foly-age at our local parks is sad. I hope everyone remembers how bad is was this summer when we finally get permission to hold volunteer workdays on the courses. This club can make a huge difference in keeping the yearly new growth cut back. So, get ready folk. This fall could have a lot of volunteer workdays.

Speaking of which...
Ron, I played in the Music City Open this past weekend. It was my first tournament, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Thanks for the work you did in putting on a smooth B-Pool. Anyway, after the tournament I was reevaluating the discs I carry in my bag. I was going through my stack of loose discs and came across an orange Pro Wraith which I have had for at least two years. I've been playing casually for ~four years, and must've found this disc before I was familiar with disc golf etiquette. It has your name on it. I understand that you've probably moved on from this disc, but if you would still like it I would be happy to return it to you.
Ron; Although you are correct in classifying it a theft I can't say I am too offended. I understand some peoples unwillingness to go through the effort of returning a disc. Although I really liked the disc loosing it gave me an opportunity to upgrade. I just purchased the Star version, so lets hope it fly's as well as its predecessor.
This is a nice forum and I think it serves a good purpose for those in the area that like to play often.
Thanks again for the commiseration.
