Flip it with a stick, call the number if there is one, tell them where it is. If the owner's still on the course or nearby, maybe he can get it.

Ventured down the street yesterday evening to play a solo round at my home course, which is on a university campus, where I'm also an employee. The campus has been nearly a ghost town this week.

Was not happy with what I saw. I witnessed a five-some and six-some, and as I was leaving, a SEVEN-some showed up to play. These aren't student groups, as nearly all of the university students have been sent home.

A friend posted a PSA warning on the local disc golf FB page; this type of social gathering could easily result in the university opting to pull the course (though they have other priorities, currently). His message included this: "Another thing to consider is that the course ... ties into a lot of other activity spaces. If the baskets get pulled, there's really no impetus for (the university to put them) back in, and the benefits of them being gone may be seen to outweigh their presence for the foreseeable future."

That would suck.

Yesterday, a guy in the threesome in front of me left his putter in the basket. When I approached the group to let him know, the guy seemed surprised I hadn't picked it up.

Really? Go get your own disc. And then ya'll can let me play through.

Same thing I always do...leave it alone.

Great rule of thumb right now. If it does not belong to you, don't touch it. I was walking the dog yesterday in the neighborhood. My neighbor from across the street wanders over to chit chat. Comes close and wants to pet the dog. Usual routine, enjoyed by both the dog and neighbor. I had to admonish him...he seemed taken aback. I had to shrug and apologize, but damn....THINK. It is a new world, it requires thought to be put into almost every rote action. Slow down and think.

Say, how much would you charge to lick my compass?

Luckily my dog lives social distancing as a norm haha. He's not mean, but certainly unwelcoming to people in his bubble. He's a taco terrier mix with little person syndrome lol. All bark for sure, but nobody wants to come pet him.

I saw this on the course yesterday. Probably from the guy whose disc I found.
