Found an Ace Disc
 
Found an Ace disc at Oak Meadow in Cypress TX (Houston). One of the signatures is Dwain Reeder #47984. PDGA shows him living in Florida. Anyone know of an good Florida contact/place to find Dwain.

Social media?

I remember finding an ace disc with a number on it. Turns out, the guy answering the phone had lost the disc a year earlier on the other side of the continent, and the ace had been thrown elsewhere by someone who honored it with the ace label but hadn't placed his name or number on the disc (or scratched off the original owner's).

I'd say don't lose sleep over returning it unless it looks like a valuable disc. It never hurts to do a quick search, but chances are that the disc is not terribly missed.

I had about 50 Discs stolen out of the toolbox of my pickup truck in 1998 at Hudson Mills (near Ann Arbor, MI) which included several ace Discs. I hope all the bad karma they had coming their way manifested itself fully over the last two decades.

Way to try to get it back.. I get three or four discs left here every year.. Unless people contact me they are still here if they come back next year.. One guy asked me to mail it to him but when I said sure shoot me $10 for the postage (I think it's $12ish) he bitched a bit and eventually said just hold onto it. Haha. Kinda soured my desire to go to great lengths for a name I don't recognize.

I did get a guys stool back to him this year though through friends who came down from the Yukon

I get people trying to give me discs they find that I traded or gave away that only have my name on em when they get lost.. I refuse them because I don't want them or the bad karma

ok, so I ALWAYS call #s on discs to get them back. and I find it honorable that the OP wants to get an Ace disc back to the owner.

but I find a fair amount of discs with a PDGA # and nothing else on it. I have a hard time deciding to RESEARCH to get a piece of plastic back to the owner when the thrower could have written a phone # on it.(I don't use Facebook) so, I just say to myself "thanks for the Roc3! Mids are always nice!" and stick it in my bag.

I'm not asking for opinions, I guess. just giving my take on what you should do IF you really want the thing back....

Agree with this. I don't use social media, so if you want your disc back, put some reasonable contact info on it. I'll bend over backwards to try and get it back to you once I get ahold of you. But please don't make it a dam chore to find you in the 1st place. Is a phone # really that much more ink than a pdga #??

As a tournament player, PDGA# is my unique mark. I like as little ink as possible on a disc. If I wanted a stranger to call me, I'd put the phone number.

plastic has to earn my ink

I guess the real question is what is more important: Writing 5 digits on a disc rather than 10 or increasing your chances of getting a disc back?
