The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I really hate local "players" who think they are all that however they are just full of crap. Who lie about their scores and who lie about how far they can throw it and even lie about how they acquired their discs. I'll admit anytime I'm one of those "lake rats" as some of you would say. However if the disc I finds has a name and number I'll call it and attempt to return it sometimes for a finders fee of like $2. If no one answers I consider it my disc. Sometimes I even turn them into the local pro shop because they have a "lost and found" area. I have recenty run across a group of people who have just started but have VERY nice new discs and bags and straps. I figured "well good they are just excited to play and are helping out the local pro shop". Nope they aren't. They have stolen most of their discs from stores. I do not know how they have gotten bags hopefully they have paid for them. But still WHY WOULD YOU? It only hurts the local club and the game in general. I personally hope this group of people get caught and arrested. While some of you think it is wrong to be a "lake rat" I do not see it as stealing if it doesn't have a name and/or I made an attempt to return the disc. I'd want my disc returned if found so why not try to make an attempt to help everyone out. And yes I do sell my findings sometimes its not like I can keep up with 100 discs in my bag. Anyway just wanting to share that. Thanks. Good luck.

Only . . . :)

Hey, Rob, "hate" is a pretty strong emotion, eh? Someone who steals discs from a store deserves pity more than hate, you just know the rest of their life is totally screwed up.

The funny thing is when a group don't believe that you can throw in on them and they just insist on standing in your fairway or on the green. I was ticked at a group who came up to the green of the hole we were getting ready to tee off to, they were cocky and insisted that we go ahead and throw. My disc missed hitting the group by a few feet and they apologized after we got to the green. They did not believe that anyone could throw that far that accurately. It was only about 375 ft.
