The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So at our disc golf here in muscatine,IA they have been cleaning up shit and cutting down stuff to make the course a lot better to play at. We have tons of weeds, thorn bushes, and poison ivy so it's really nice that they have been maintaing the course. But i have a problem with this. A lot of the places that they have cleaned up and manucured have been spots in the course where i have lost lots of my discs. I guess what i'm trying to say is that i'm really pissed off that they found roughly about 8 or 9 with my name on them and i haven't heard anything.

I never plan on getting lost discs back.
One of our local courses is in a city park that regularly gets mowed by the city. We've found, on more than one occasion, shredded plastic in the grass from discs having been run over by the mower. I don't think they know or care that the discs are there or that they cost money to replace. I'm guessing that is probably the case where you are, too.

Im going to put it into simple prospective. If you left it there and quit looking then you pretty much said Im done with this dic. I tend to continue to look until I find the damn thing, because I hate having to break a new disc in and I end up buying at least 4 discs when I go in because something catches the eye.
you're right i can't assume they did find them but there isn't really a whole lot of people that play our course because is it so diffcult because of the tall grass,weeds,and other shit that grow in that course.
I'm pretty sure my disc got shredded. :(
I looked for an hour in wet tall grass brother and it was very hard to leave but it just started to pour down rain. it wasn't a good day.
I search pretty hard for lost discs during practice and rec rounds, but there is a time limit during competition. And of course rainy days and night fall which sometime make it impossible.

Generally I tend to look at abandoned discs as if it were an abandoned ship. No one is obligated to return the vessel. If they do, it's usually for a reward or finders fee. If the finder places more value on the disc than they do the finders fee then it won't be returned and I save myself unnecessary frustration by not expecting the items return. I suppose it is very generous of the finder to offer to return your property once you've abandoned it, but the "law of the sea" doesn't require it.
Well, the "law of the land" says different mate. :-)
it's nice when somebody finds your disc and calls and you get it back ...... many times i've already replaced it in my bag and if i get the other one back something's got to give .... remember ... and we all do it ... we put the disc the disc in our hand we throw it away from us ..... we choose to throw it away .... sometimes they just get away, never to be seen again .... too bad so sad .... we hurl them away and they get lost
We have a course like this too. Keep er on the fairway is all I can say. Tall grass and knarly junipers, disc goes in but no disc comes out. Its a tough course to find discs on, even when searching for our own, we rarely find someone elses. We just purchased a riding lawn mower and a wood chipper, this fall the course is getting a "bath". Hopefully we will find some discs that people lost and with any luck, we can prevent the number of hours searching for discs in the future. The only people to maintain our courses is the players, and there are only 4 or 5 of us willing to cut grass and clean up. This benifits the rec players because we return their discs, they probably wouldnt return ours, but whos to say? At any rate, keep er on the fairway!!
Agreed, if it is lost I just mark it up as gone forever. And then if someone happens to call me back if they find a lost disc of mine I just consider it a bonus.
