Thanks for the heads up! I had no idea that was there. I've made a few trips to Allentown a few times, Dodo's disc golf. They've got a nice selection, the guys there are friendly and knowledgeable.

I'll be making a trip to downingtown soon!

Sometimes you can miss them though. Dave will pack it up if he is going out to play a round, or some days they are just not there. But I would say 9 times out of 10 you can grab some new discs out there.

In conclusion. Do you hate waiting for discs? No.

It's been over two months since I lost the bulk of my throwers, I knew I'd get the chance to get to gggt eventually and replenish the supply. Besides stopping in a few stores here and there on the road and tourney winnings, my bag has been a mismatched mess. I could have ordered online and had the discs at my parents' house 3 weeks ago. But I waited, and I didn't hate it, for the opportunity to go to the store so I could choose each disc individually.

I hate waiting for the store to open when I'm trying to play an early round at the course near the shop.

I ordered a disc and it was supposed to arrive today. It left the sort facility thats only ~60 miles from me this morning, but it still hasn't gotten here. I'm wondering what the hell happened.

Probably a wormhole. Happens to my disc all the time on the course, passes through to another dimension, usually very near the edge of the fairway, and probably in deep shule or near water as well, but I haven't been able to prove it yet. I suppose it's less likely, but not improbable that your disc passed into a wormhole on its way from the store to you.

I completely agree, sometimes discs I've never seen before end up near me, most likely from a wormhole on some other course somewhere

I guess thats the only explanation.
