Amen. And return the text within a day (hours), not a week or two later. And do tell me how you're going to come and pick it up at a location convenient to me (my home, my work) or how you're sending me money right now through Paypal to ship it to you.

The finder has zero responsibility to be put out and to make arrangements. I can see why people get jaded on returning discs and just leave them where they lie.

The owner of the lost disc needs to remember "who's doing whom the favor."

Agreed. If you are worried about the owner of the disc being some sort of parasite who will expect you do go to the effort and expense of getting the disc to him, then simply send him a text saying that you found his disc at such and such a course and are now on your way home, but left the disc under the trash can at x location, and leave it at that. They can make their own arrangements to retrieve it or not.

Personally, I call the number, because there is about a 50% chance that they just left it behind and are two fairways in front of me. If they do not answer, then I give the line stated in the previous paragraph. It's not so terribly difficult, and I have never experienced any problems when doing this.

One time whilest playing a round with my boys a group caught up to us as we had twice the players. These guys were just carrying a couple discs a piece. I recognized one of the discs as it was a dyemax, and asked my buddy hey isn't that your disc, he said yeah. And we told him to hand it over, which he didn't hesitate to do. The disc had my friends name and number on it and had lost it a couple weeks prior on the same course and this guy was just playing with it paying it no mind. Some people are just scrubs.

Thats pretty incredible. You might be the first to find and attempt to return a desk that was dropped on the course! From the sounds of it, it wasn't the first one either!

That's good you want it back, you have two options.

A) you can meet me at a local course and I will gladly give it to you. (I'm there most days)

B) I can leave it at my leagues lost and found. You need an ID with the name matching the disc on it. If it's not collected within a couple months they sell it and use the money for course maintenance and stuff.

Lost and and found, or just leave it...they may be on their way back. Sometimes you dont want your phone number to be public knowledge.if your taking discs that are marked bc they dont have a number and its too much "work". Your a theif. Please just leave it there. We will get it back to them.
