The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So I was practicing my drives at a local community park where I have a good 500ft fairway that I use for driving practice. It was real windy and when I went to throw the disc back the other way.. the wind gust caught it and carried it up the arch shaped storm shelter near the playground. I managed to throw my Champion Beast and brand spanking new 2008 Worlds DGA Rogue that I won on this site last month. Yeah.. not a happy camper. I brewed over some possible ways of getting these discs down.

-I could find someone with a 20 ft ladder but.. I don't know anyone with a ladder that big.
-Get a truck that's tall enough to stand on
-Let the wind blow it down ( then I might be out of 2 discs )

-Call the town parks and recreation to see if there is a way to get them down. I doubt nothing will happen

There is not much to grab onto to pull myself up over the ledge or I would definitely do that.

Blow ... really hard ... I know you can do eet!
Hey Tx_Buckeye_Nut.. How much are one of those Casting fish nets? I might try the weighted rope idea if Parks and Recreation don't email me back.
Have you heard of the sport called dwarf tossing?
hey now, the rope idea is about the best course of action if the Parks dept doesn't want to help.Dwarfs are way to heavy to throw in the air.Any school cheerleaders in the area,they could form the pyramid and then you could climb up.Problem almost solved.Wait..tie a hoola-Hoop on the end of a rope,hold onto rope end while you throw the hoola-hoop on the roof,proceed to drag and pull rope and the discs will fall down into waiting arms.A Rube Goldberg sort of retrievable system with less cost than the casting net.
yeah.. ironically enough there is school right behind the park. I thought of the whole "cheerleader" thing but.. I'd most likely end up stepping up wrong and collapsing the whole pyramid, Injuring the whole Cheerleading team in the process.

yeah but think about the pile...
Indeed a bunch of cheerleaders in a pile could keep me warm but I'll shy away from the underage thing. Never would've thought of the stable drivers.. Mark Stephens.. You are a genius my man... genius. Then I could take that lawsuit money and just get new discs...... NICE !
What did you use to draw that?
ahh.. just photoshop at work. took me all but 2 minutes.
A long pole ?
yeah.. i was thinking about a pool cleaning net but don't have one and heard they are pretty expensive. My buddy is going to try to help me out tomorrow. Parks and Recreation never emailed me back.... hmmmmm
Can you borrow one of those disc retrievers? The folding triangle kind? Or, I have a ladder you can borrow...:) Tie something on to a long rope that won't dent the structure and sling it up there. I got some discs off the ice once by doing this. Pay some kid to climb up there. You could most likely by one or two new discs for the price of a rental, and not have to fool around with hauling that thing to and from the store. D.W.J.L.
