And I am not a fan of the Grandview course. Don't even get me started on Pickard.

Are you new? Yeah, man. It's been around for decades...Great course, crazy elevation. Only downfall is trying to find 18 temp baskets to use, not stepping on a rotted out carp, and digging up the tee pad from 12 inches of dirt every time...

What is wrong with my name? Would you prefer Addie Bundren??

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. My only negative experience at Waterworks park was one spring afternoon - might have been in '02 - when an unfortunate throw landed my Eagle driver plum into the Raccoon River. I had been experimenting with a new hand grip for Anhyzer throws and the wind was gusting. Excuses aside, it was risky shot and I lost mightily on the throw. You see it was my favorite Eagle driver than landed in the Raccoon and I was going to be damned if I didn't attempt to retrieve it. It was early spring, so that the air temperature was cool and the water in the Raccoon was downright cold. Shoes off, with khakis rolled up to the knees, I began to wade into the slow-moving brown water. I learned two lessons that day: First, the sheer volume of water in the Raccoon creates a strong and powerful current even if it appears slow. Second, when wading into any river, it is wise to leave your checkbook and keys safe on the bank. The 4 and some mile walk back to my apartment in cold wet clothing was penance enough for my errant anhyzer throw. Sitting outside my locked door for 4 hours until my roommate returned from her studies was cruel overkill from the fates, in my opinion.
The next day, I was back at Waterworks Park, don't you know?

Sometimes it makes me sad, though... my Eagle being gone. I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my disc.

Since I am innocent of this crime, sir, I find it decidedly inconvenient that my disc was never found.
