Default Locked disc drop off box Golden Gate park, holding time?

I live in San Diego and visit Bay Area about twice a year. Someone just texted me they found my disc I lost there and Golden Gate park. They are wondering if they should put it in the locked drop box out there.

Does anyone know how that drop box is handled. I talked to a operator at Golden Gate park services and they had no idea the box even existed or who handled it.

I might be back there in July but don't there if there's a one month holding period for discs returned in that fashion or something of the sort.

Installing disc lock boxes on random courses actually sounds like a great evil way to get some slightly used plastic!

I don't see how that's relevant.

Yeah this was started by club members as a way to get lost discs back to people (as opposed to having to plan a meet-up, etc.) - the club has (limited) license to manage the course, so it's not surprising that they don't know.

Trustworthy people in the club have keys, you can post on the SFDGC facebook group or just ask around at the practice basket. 99.9% of the time someone with a key is at the course.

If you're already back out of town, bribe someone on the club FB page to grab and ship you the disc.
