Yes but a quick text doesn’t get me $2-$3 dollars credit on a new disc.

Nah man, I chuck'em deep in the woods on the NEXT hole. Then crack myself up for days when I randomly imagine them looking for it.

Those yuks are worth way more than the trade-in value.

I found a disc today with nothing on it and since it was a Nuke SS I left it on #3s tee. It might still be there if you want it.

Funny doing what is right generally doesn't make one feel bad.



I kind of wonder if others are in a middle ground here. It depends a lot on my mood. If it looks like a good thrower with a name and number I will text and work out a place at the course to leave it. We have an unlocked lost and found box that unfortunately some people look at as a free for the takers box.

If no name or number and looks like a good thrower hopefully i'm playing with someone who I know will put in the effort to track them down. Depends on my mood if I am going to leave it at the next basket, leave in the lost and found (as I said not much difference between the two as far as a disc finding its way back to its owner) or actually snap a pic and post on our clubs Lost and Found Facebook page. The FB page is not a big a deal since it is about as much hassle with the phone as a text really. Small enough community generally can arrange a handoff to a friend of the guy that lost it or meet at a weekly.

If it looks like starter disc set or just munched up or a brand new groove with the Dick's price tag still on it. I will throw it in the general direction of the closest basket or leave it in if i'm headed that way, name or number on it.

I have test thrown discs before and almost re-lost one. I had never thrown a Tern before, found a pretty used one. texted the number. A few holes later I tried it out and turned it over really really bad where it sailed into a field across a road full of star thistles. Yellow disc in a thorny field of yellow flowers... right then the guy texted me back saying so many thank yous it was one of his first discs he loves it and he had to give up looking because it got dark and he was bummed it was lost forever could he come meet me at the course and get it. Ouch... I waded out into the thorns and retrieved it.

My question is who is worse.......people who find disks with numbers and don't call or......... People who lose a disk,you find it,you call them,arrange a place to meet up,you go out of your way to meet up with them and they don't show up. Has happened to me twice with two different people. One even called me a week later and said he got busy so he didn't show up (guess he couldn't call either) and wanted me to drive 20 miles and just leave it on his porch. NOT!

That's why I just hide it at the course I found it. If they can't make it back to the course to get it that's on them. It's not on your to hand deliver a disc they lost.

My preferred method, as well.
