Ended up having a name and number on it, so despite me wanting the disc I texted. The guy was there and said he'd meet me at the practice basket. I met up with him and handed it back, despite the disc saying "reward $$$ or pick of any disc" the dude just said "hey man I've got no cash sorry" and blew me off.

Not that I needed the money or any more plastic but such a bummer the dude would put that on his discs and not honor it. Bigger bummer about it is the dude looked familiar and I think I remember him doing that to someone else at the course earlier this year.
I should know better than to complain about fellow disc golfers on this site. The dude contact me on here and apologized for the impression I got from the situation. I talked with my buddies a bit and we decided this isn't the same guy who did it earlier this year at Kaposia - which was part of what had me bummin (not for myself, I don't need his plastic or money, just that it seemed people were baiting people into returning discs). So to all my fellow DG'ers, and to this gentleman that I badmouthed a bit on here, I apologize.

Overall I was just happy to get the guy his disc back as it had some sentimental value to him. The returning discs thing is still sort of odd to me as I've never gotten a call and consider my discs gone when I give up looking for them. But from my understanding those in this community generally do return discs and so I have been hoping I get a little bit of good karma out of it.

Playing a little course about 1/2 drive from where my brother lives called Idle Hour Lake in a place called Altamont, KS. Wound up being a really good layout/design. I was one over par up to hole #11. If you look at the pic on the course description you can see the stand of trees that are at the corner of the lake. I was debating between my Wahoo and the unLace. It's a 277' hole that should have been a cakewalk. It hadn't been too windy that day so I felt confident choosing the unLace. The following events are best described as freakish. The unLace was taking its predictable pattern to the basket when what must have been a hot gust of wind out of the depths of Hell pushed the disc UP and it stalled. I watched in horror as the disc started to come down with the other players ewwing and awwing. As I walked to the top of the levy all I could see was the dying ripples of a disc cut down in its prime. Easily 20-30 feet of water. The water had to be 40 degrees otherwise I would have stripped down and jumped in to save it. Alas to fill the void that the unLace's passing had left in my heart and bag I decided to turn to Vibram for solace and adopted his baby brother the new Glow unLace with a promise to NEVER let him close to the water.

My Wolf is back!

About four months ago, I lost my Wolf in a corn field. Today I was working on my sidearm (still sucks), threw a disc aside and it sounded odd, given that it landed on tall grass.
I checked underneath it and hurray, I found that Wolf.
Apparently it survived being eaten by a combine and got tossed to the side where it weathered heat, rain and now cold for four months.
Apart from one solid gash, it's practically unharmed.
And best of all, it's hardly any more understable than when I lost it!

Lost a disc locally and could not find it after an hour search. I got a call 2 months later from a nice kid telling me he found my disc.....200 miles away. That was one ^&** of an errant throw.

Trying to help a guy named Aron Dwyer get his Groove back. Literally.
Found his 1st ace disc in Wilmore, KY a few days ago, called (# not in service), messaged him on FaceBook, and listed it in the lost & found at the Lexington club web site. Not much more I can do, other than list it here. Gotta move this Groove, ya know?

definitely a point where it becomes a lost cause.

on a cool note, apparently earlier during the fall, i returned a disc belonging to the current president of the minnesota frisbee association - nice!

it was kinda funny, originally i thought someone was trying the whole "put a stripper's name on a disc" trick. but it was really his last name.

Put my Ti Buzzz in the water on #9 at Idlewild park in Charlotte. Carried the water but hit one of the many guardian trees and kicked right into the drink.

I'm sure someone will text me that they've seen it at PIAS, as I will never get a phonecall from the people who farm plastic from that pond. This will be the 4th time this will have happened, so I would be AMAZED to get a call to return before they sell it to PIAS

My go-to-flick Star Firebird, in the bay at #1 Hiller Park. Had a good throw, but nicked the cypress on the tee side of the water, and plopped me right in the middle of the drink---waist-deep, muddy, stinky.

Slightly making up for that was finding a Star Teebird I lost 2 years ago practicing in a field near a creek. The city mowed closely in late fall and there it was---faded and stained with mudspots, but fairly intact.
