finding discs...

I've been playing for about a month and found 2 discs while throwing a round today. Neither had any info on them and the guy at the tennis center at the park said no one reported any missing. I checked on the forums here in case they were reported (low chance I'm assuming). Shoukd I just thank the disc gods for a champ valk and champ beast and keep them? Any other way of returning them

First thing that comes to mind for me is Write your name and number on them then leave them back at the course. Watch to see who picks them up from a safe and concealed distance. Watch to see if they return the discs when THEY pick 'em up. If they don't call you ASAP get their license plate numbers and stalk them, then take their discs. Cross their names off of the disc so you can still kind of see their names. Put your name on their discs then leave them back on the course. This should blow someone's mind.

No harm, no foul. You've already done more than most would. Enjoy your good luck.

I've lost 15 or so discs over my 8 years playing the sport, I've had one returned. I called a guy 3 weeks ago after I found his disc, after about a week ~5 texts/calls, he said whatever just keep the fker it's just a pain in my gd ass. I hadn't been back to the local course all week and was busy with life, dude snapped. So i honestly dont know what to think about the ethics code this sport has on returning discs.

Oh boy! this again.

I am spit-balling a new idea..
-If no ink: keep / sell / giveaway / trade / put it in a lost and found / huck it without a retrieval.. whatever you want
-If ink and you know the owner, give it back
-If ink and you do not know the owner, leave it exactly where you found it and forget about it *

*exception might be if it is during a tourney or league play
*if playing in a group, make no interference or argument if a cardmate wants to deal with it
