"Are you (my name here)?" WTF instant karma i had written that disc off. i walked right next to it twice that day already! and he just happened to find it.

point being, i always make an effort to return discs, i just mailed a disc to a guy in Pennsylvania. and as it turns out I find a ridiculous amount of discs. i have pulled 10 in one day from the pond at CR. only 3 had names. 7 with no ink. This just walking on the edge of the pond.
Very nice. Wish I found discs more often, then I could get some more of my lost ones back :P

Well, I regret to say, I've given up on my green blizzard katana. I've found four discs over the past week just by looking into the water whenever I was playing, hoping to find my disc. Just returned one to a guy today. Still waiting for call-backs on the others. Anyway, today I decided to go all out. I figured, hey, I've found everybody else's without even trying, maybe I'll have some luck if I actually try to seek out mine. So I went in the water with waders and a rake, and spent all together too much time mucking around, and didn't find anything! I'm not entirely surprised that my disc didn't turn up, but I'm genuinely surprised to that I came up with nothing. So I'm done. Either it shows up sometime when I'm not trying, or it doesn't. Or maybe someone will find it and call me for a change. But now I will apply myself to finding an identical disc to replace it. So if anyone has a bright green blizzard katana around 148g that they want to sell or trade, drop me a line.

It's half and half

What is sad, I would say half of the people that I have played with make no effort to return discs. From people who just keep them, to this guy who told me he would call but if there was no answer, he wouldn't even leave a message, that was all the effort he would do then keep it. that's freakin crazy. I rarely answer my cell phone. While the other half are straight forward, make an effort to get discs back. But half is a huge number of people not returning discs

Or start selling them back to Dicks, so you can make a profit too

Exclamation blendon woods lost disc

Welp I lost my first disc today since I've been playing in 5 years. I'm pretty sure my gf saw two dudes who might have got it. We were only a hole in front of them and when I went back to look they were already gone out of the parking lot. Blah. Anyyyyways its a super bright super soft buzzz with a sugarbush stamp on it. Anyone who plays blendon keep an eye out. Ill reward.
