I got a call from Kentucky about a disc I lost at Fontana Dam (NC).

But by far the most surprising was the Cyclone I got when I joined the PDGA (ca. 1997). I lost it in 2003 or earlier. About 2 years ago some guys from Charleston, SC brought it to me, among some discs they'd dredged out of a pond. (That's 130 miles away, though I have played tournaments there). A testament to karma, and sharpies.

It still flies, though I have to say that Cyclones aren't exactly the cutting-edge disc they might have been in 1997.

When I was first starting at disc golf, I lost a Champ Valk on 18 at Idlewild. No ink of any kind. Probably nine months later, I discovered our local site/forum and was looking at the lost and found section. Someone had posted they found a disc on 18. I posted my Valk's details, and it wound up being the disc. JP Mayer was the name of the returner. He's the reason why I try to post every disc I find, ink or not.

Karma always pays off.
I play a small but very bushy course that is really easy to lose discs on. My league also plays almost exclusively there. So I've probably returned 20 discs to people I've already had in my cell phone!

I returned a disc to a guy a couple week ago after a month of him texting me about picking it up. Went out that round and pulled an extra disc out when I grabbed my floating #2 driver I just threw in off at The Valley. Pretty nice shape - no ink gummy feeling Champion Boss. Some championship on it can't remember who but I can actually whip that Boss 300 feet exactly where I want it on a hyzer. Not going to be my max d driver but damn accurate if you ask me.

So sometimes karma works even though I didn't get a single disc returned to me this year.

Thanks for the leads!

Thanks again! I've sent them each an e-mail. Crossing my fingers.

Weirdly coincidental, a disc golf acquaintance called and informed me that he has my M4 I left behind playing doubles a month or so ago.

Lost my trusty Northman about two years ago at one course. Got a call about a month ago from a guy who pulled it out of the pond of another course thirty miles away! Awesome! Some guy must have picked it up and been playing with it for two years and lost it in the pond at this other course. I gave the guy that found it some cash for getting it back to me...it was sweet!

On a side note, I've been putting my wife's name on my discs...get called back nearly every time

I've sold inked discs on eBay and received phone calls from California and Minnesota...I'm in North Carolina.

I told them they just gained a new disc. The people who bought those never put their ink on it...their loss!
