This "Mudlark" a$$hole even admits that he has removed the name from the disc... I guess we're not free from this sort of thing, but at least it's in the minority.

Yep, too much spare time today. Waiting for some snow.

I saw this one this morning ...

Did you swim over the weekend?
Or did you just wade in?

Big Joe, you do realize it's not really EBay. The Kiwi rigged it.

The water is so far down that I just walked out. I was taking a friend from NZ on a tour of the city and was just driving over the lock and saw how low it was so made the water hole a part of the tour. It was a bit muddy but hey, they were just lieing in the open and I thought if I don't get them someone will spot them soon and they'll be gone. Actually found 9 discs and will post the pics of them later today. Most have names I think but some are a bit unclear.

Do you think Don was serious?

The things you do to fill in time when you're sitting around waiting for screens to burn, or dry, or images to print.

Here's the 9 discs I found on the weekend:

169g Blue Pro Firebird - Paul Bourgeois
168g Red Champion Banshee - James Heginbottom
168g Blue Champion Monster - Jeff
168g Red DX Eagle (complete with hole) - Paul Novosad
171g White KC Pro Tee Bird - J Rhoades
171g White DX Eagle - Colin McDonald
169g Green First Run Pro TeeBird - Stacie Sivyer
175g Red Champion Orc - Stefan Dobrev
175g Blue Champion Orc - Geoff Penton

I'll figure out a way to get them back to people when I come in to Ottawa next.

No worries. I hate to see people lose discs, as I know what it's like when I was starting out and didn't have many. I don't mind a bit of cold water and mud if it means more discs flying in the world.

I think Don still has one in there though. Had a good look around bu maybe his went even further right?

When I first opened the link I was in total disbelief: My Firebird for sale on E-BAY?!? And who is this Mudlark anyways? I was in the process of having one of my colleagues at work here email this "Mudlark" to find out who he/she was, and was beginning to plot my revenge for A) selling my disk and B) Posting my name and phone number on EBAY!

But then... wait a second, none of the links on this page were working. Was it a network problem? Was Mudlark hiding something? And why was shipping going to be $20 for one disc? Wait a second...

Bwahh ha ha ha LOL!

Arthur, you ROCK!
A big beer is coming your way for doing this. And yes, I think Don was serious.

Glad I could provide some Monday morning humor. I tried to make the description funny enough that you would notice it, I even made you the high bidder too.

Your disc had moved about 3 metres closer to the hole and was only about 3 feet from the bank upside down with a thin layer of mud on it. Luckily it had a bit of mud on it otherwise I think anyone walking along would have seen it and it would have been gone. I'll give you a call when I can get hold of the car and get in to Ottawa.

(I've removed your number from the disc photo now too, but it is still on the disc)

Looking at the list of discs and feeling like a bit of a smarta$$:

Jay, what were you doing throwing a Teebird on that hole anyways?

And how badly does a person have to shank a Monster to have it land in the water?

Paul N: did you put a hole in your disc? No wonder you threw it in the water: isn't playing with a broken disc a 2-stroke penalty?

Stacey: A first run proline Teebird: there was one for the anthropologists to find in a hundred years. Mudlark could have made a mint!

And as for the lost Firebird: I'll just hang my head in shame.

There was so much plastic lost on this hole, it's incredible.

Arthur, thanks again for fishing all of this stuff out!

If it makes you feel better Paul, at least your disc was close to the bank. The others I found were all well out in the mud. They were not going to make it back to land no matter how hard they turned back.

And I was surprised about the discs I found out there until I remembered in the first round my Firebird only just got back to hit the bank then fell in the water. The wind really was as crazy as we remember it.

Apparantly, the Kiwi version of April Fool's Day comes not on April 1st, but on November 8th.

Who'dda thunk it?

Good one Kiwi - 'ya got me.
