Mine was left of the pin and I thought it hit the bank on the other side. My daughters was in the creek on #11(she turned it over) almost in front of 12's tee

If your disc's were anywhere near the creek then I can say with confidence they are probably half way to Red Rock by now...I walked the creek for maybe 50 yards on the south side of the road and the creek bed is scoured over there.

The water looks like it was about a foot or so short of going over the road...I've lived here since '92 and it looks like it was about as high as it's ever been. According to my rain gauge we got 4 inches this morning. Add that to the 4 inches we got the previous 2 days and you can say we had a lot of rain.

I walked the park this evening and the ground is saturated. At it's highest the water was up to the pins in many places. Around 2 it was almost as high as the actual basket. On 5 it was just short of of the pin. The piece of the large black culvert that was poking out from the ground around hole 8 is now down by the skate park. The area near hole 6 is ankle deep in water.

A guy named Jay lost an orange midrange on 4, between 4's fairway & 8's basket. It's in the water, I think, just couldn't find it. The stream is small right there, but found that there's now a shelf of dirt where the bottom of the creek used to be, and a carern of water flow underthat slelf there - as if there's a lower cavernous bottom to the creek. I think the disc might have been sucked down there, since there was such little chanceof us not finding the disk there. This was just upstream from the culvert on 8, and the "clay pools", as I call them now @ & below 8's pin.

**NOTE**

early morning hours are the best time to find anything in the creek. If you lose it in the water, and cant see it obviously on top or the side? Dont dig, come back the next AM & see it plain as day. The "murk" in the water clears up by morning. wow!
