Man KP has not been too good to you recently Kodachrome. The few times that I played this year I sucked it up and put on ribbons. Certainly doesn't get a true flight out of the discs but makes for a much more enjoyable round. The only disc I lost this winter (which is only 5-10 rounds I suppose) was a clear-ish Orc I stupidly decided to throw after the ribbon fell off at Highland. I refuse to bring any of the discs I have broken it for my regular bag out in the snow - just an old mid, putter, and sometimes a driver - the others are too nicely broken in to take the chance of losing them in the 2+ feet of snow out there.

Hope you find your discs man!

Dude, EFFING bummer! It might be worth putting a post up in the Discs section stating that anything with FLOTO #55691 that ends up on eBay, CL, PIAS, or the MarketPlace should be brought to your attention. I sometimes take for granted how far of a reach this board has and how many good people on here will certainly keep an eye out.

I don't have a ton of extra discs but if a couple used throwers will help you out I'd be happy to donate a couple. Throwing anything is better than nothing!

Blew up an SE Teebird today. Hit an early tree due to late release and the thing exploded in to a bunch of pieces. It sounded like a sheet of ice hitting a tree. It was nuts.

In the past month, I've run into two separate strangers, who claim to not play regularly, say that when they do play it's with discs they find. This misconception among non-dger's that it's finders keepers even if a name and number is written on it is infuriating. Both parties were laughing when they said it and I wanted to beat them with my bag. Of course, I didn't. My only advice is if it's a disc you throw regularly, ink the hell out of it -- there are a lot douche bags out there.

though i will admit it's possible someone else found it and sold it/traded to him. suppose i should throw that out there. seeing my dyed disc on sale kinda pissed me off.

Threw my uninked F7 proto on hole 8 at Brengale Terrace in Vista. Late release with a slight anny and off it went sailing to the right in the garden. Second time this one left my hand and gone, gone, gone... Stayed looking for over 30 minutes with no results.

Lost my brand-new hunter orange Star Roadrunner in the messy snow on Handyman Ace Hardware #3 yesterday afternoon. Scoured the fairway near where I *thought* I saw it land for almost an hour with no luck. It's got my name and number on it, so if someone finds it, please call!

I lost my yellowish/brownish Champion Roc3 at Lagoon Valley in Vacaville, CA this last Saturday. I believe it was lost on one of the extra holes, either A or B. It was my own dumb fault for forgetting to pick it up. I didn't notice it was gone until I went to go throw it on hole C and it wasn't in my bag. There was a tournament going on that day, although I wasn't playing in it. I went back to the area I think I left it, but it was gone. There were a couple of tournament groups playing behind us, so someone may have turned it in to the staff there, but I didn't receive a text or call (the disc was inked). I loved that disc...
