Found 2 inked discs last wed, one guy was super excited and it's back in his possession, they second didn't really care, he thanked me for the honesty and told me to keep it.

So I'm at the beach, taking a long walk with my kids off to a remote stretch of beach which isn't very populated but has a lot of sandy open space. I've been taking discs out here on these walks because I can practice all sorts of throws out here without worrying about hitting anyone or losing the discs. I had been using a highlighter yellow champion panther that I didn't really have a use for but I liked the color because it was easy to spot, but then my dad went and lost it in dense sticker bushes a few days ago. So today I brought out another disc I bought used (like the panther), but I had never tried out... a rather heavy archangel. And on its maiden voyage, it took off like a monster. Which would have been great, had I not griplocked and sent it 90 degrees the wrong way off off and away... into the sea.

Three hours later, we came back on bikes as the tide had gone out further and my daughter found it stuck in the sand. I gave it to her

My 13-year-old uses my hand-me-downs and lost his favorite disc (Blizzard Wraith) when we played UC Santa Cruz the other day. He was crestfallen when we gave up looking - I told him my name/number was on it so there was always a chance we'd get it back.
Today (two days later) we are literally on our way out of town when I get a text from someone who found it and left it at the starter's shed at DeLa!!
Needless to say, we turned around and went and got it! Thank you again to whomever found it and texted me - my son was SO happy to get that disc back!
Plus, I got a look at DeLa and can't wait to play it someday when I'm in the area solo (it's too much course for my boys, which is why we were at UCSC in the first place)

Lost my TL the other day in the weeds near my house. It's green, of course. Searched for 20 minutes with no luck. Hopefully, when winter comes and all the kudzu, poison ivy, etc. dies back, I will be able to spot it.

I lost my Comet today at Blendon Woods. I don't know what hole it was on because someone stole all the tee signs on the course.

It's a bright pink Comet... I thought it was a good shot at a blind anhyzer towards the pin. It must have disappeared under the thick brush of the woods. I really liked my Comet. Sadface

I like to keep an ice hockey puck in my bag for just such and emergency (it is flat & weighs 8 oz so it takes less room than a baseball).

I can see how a hockey puck would work well!! Baseballs suit me perfectly, though. I literally have dozens of them around the house and, since I still play, throwing them at things comes pretty naturally (I just imagine my stuck disc is a hitter crowding the plate!). The weight/bag space difference between a baseball and a hockey puck is negligible - puck is about half an ounce heavier and they're both roughly three inches in diameter

The broader point is that you should have SOMETHING in your bag for this purpose, regardless of what it is!
