A little Karma perhaps?

A couple of weeks ago, I my yellow Underworld at Willow Metropark... didn't seem like allthat bad a throw... but after about 45 min or so of looking around the leafy ground cover (in dappled, late afternoon sunlight coming through the trees), I abandoned the search.

Get a call from Innovadude yesterday - someone found my disc ...at Ponds of Lakeshore.
Whomever picked it up and (didn't bother to call me ) headed over to Ponds for a round and lost it pretty fast. FWIW, Ponds is the most wide open course in the area, with essentially no rough to speak of... how you lose a disc there is beyond me.

Glad to say it's back home.

Someone gave it a test run to see if they liked it. They probably knew ahead of time that they'd just leave it at the next park and let it be someone else's job to return it.

About a month or two ago, someone picked up my beautiful opto sparkle fuse from a course while I was looking for an errant drive in the woods.

I was sick over it, and everytime I play that course, I keep my eyes peeled for someone throwing my disc.

Well, today I caught up with a two some on a different course, and one of the dudes was clutching a familiar looking fuse. I asked him where he'd bought it, what it was, and if it said my name on it.

Turns out, it was mine!

He took it honestly, didn't know I was still on the course, and though he didn't email me about finding it, I wasn't mad. He asked where he could buy another fuse, none of the discs his friend had let him try were any good for him, and I felt sorry that I'd taken back the only disc he was using, so I gave him a RGL fuse I had retired that is too dark and that I lose more often than not on wooded holes.

It was totally worth it! I got my sparkle back!

Abendschein Park in Oak Creek, WI... Lost a nearly brand new Westside King in yellow vip plastic with the finnish/swedish lettering. Seriously was the only time I got angry losing in a disc. I really wish I never made that throw.

Might as well mention I lost another disc at Williamsberg (OH) on hole 8 today. My Orange Opto River cleared the ravine, but skipped straight forward on the right side, which means, yep, in the river, swollen with last night's rain. You know the drill: you read "jka sisyphus" inside the rim, and contact me here to return it, and you get a disc from my sale thread.

Just to add a ray of hope to an otherwise bummer thread........
In the 3 years I've been playing I've lost at least 15 discs. Since I dye most of my discs they suck to lose even more because of the time invested in them. I lost my go to driver a few months ago (my avitar) which was my very favorite driver (star roadrunner) AND the dye is actually from a close up pic of my wife's eyeball. The good news is that I lost it on a private course (Twilight Zone). The even better news is that the owner texted me this evening with a pic of my recently found disc.

I lost a VIP Northman a few a few weeks ago and was pretty sad that I lost it, it was beaten in nicely and was awesome for long anny shots. Anyway I got a text today from a guy who informed me that he found it and demanded a $5 "finders fee" to get it back. I answered back that I had a couple bucks on me but I'd gladly trade him, no response.
I'm torn because I want the disc back, but I'm kinda pissed that I'm being extorted for a disc.
The best part is that he sent me a picture of my disc taken on a marble counter top... Sure wish I could afford a marble anything... besides a marble
