How do you guys normally handle this type of find?
i have a disc that a friend gave me. i lined out his info so that it could still be read and added my own.

my theory is that if i loose it, the finder can call either number on it.

to answer your question, if i found a disc like that, i would call the number that is not scratched out first

I don't think that just finding a disc and stuffing it in the bag until you have a chance to do something with it is such bad thing.

I mean, about a month ago I found a first run star t-rex and put it in my bag while i was finishing putting. Guy came running out of the woods and was searching around. I asked what he was looking for, and he said "orange first run.." I interrupted him and said "t-rex" and took it out and tossed it to him. Now if he would have gotten angry about me putting it in my bag, then I would have had something to say because assuming i was just going to keep it is false.

But anyhow, like I said, the kid just said an inappropriate thing as far as I see it. Most around here will probably claim ignorance to the existance of the disc in the 1st place so at least he gave it back.
True that! I'm never the first to accuse anyone in any situation with no words spoken. But that kid TOTALLY would have kept it had I not said anything! I'm a pretty easy going guy and would never start an altercation over somebody putting a disc in a bag. I've done it myself when I've found one. I actually found a Force at Rogers Lakewood park about a month ago and threw it in my bag. I put it in the shed/pro shop and gave a phone call to the guy. I just wish somebody would call me back with over 15 discs floating around somewhere....

Lost my Elite X Xpress

So as the title says I lost my Xpress today. Not a very good day to say the least.
Even the pros shot bad today in our handicap league. To give you an idea I am +4 going into 16, I finish with a +11. I lose my xpress on #18, obviously the last chance I have to throw it I do and chuck it short, hit my arm....
ahhhhh
what a day everyone was shooting bad, but I lose the disc that is my driver for four of the holes here now what?? I guess hope for a call back.
End rant

I lost my champion roadrunner in about a 3 ft deep water. I got in there and found it along with seven others. Only one had a name on it and i called him and he said i could keep it. So i ended up gaining seven discs.

A few of them were crap, but for the most part they were decent discs.
