I was at Cedar Hills last Friday with my friend Scott and his brother Steve, who had never played disc golf before.
It was a beautiful day in Texas and even though the wind was crazy , at Lester Lorch park the wind doesn't come into play that much .
it was nice to be playing a round with a beginner, and we talked about his days of playing ultimate back in the day.
on hole 12 of the Coyote course I over drove with my custom dye Wraith and we couldn't find it.
It really bummed me out, but I only let it get to me for the next hole, after that it was fun city as usual.
two days later as I sat at home thinking of going to the Vet to play I received a phone call form someone named Ross
who said he found my disc. I grabbed my bag and quickly drove out to meet him .
I got there just as his group was walking back from 18 and I introduced myself and thanked him and offered him a disc
as payment. I think he didn't expect that because he seemed surprised . I was just happy to have someone call me about a lost disc and I thanked him again .
now the karma part.. kinda...
I went out to Vet today and played a killer round for me. I was happy and digging the flow of the game and the great day outside and just a wonderful course and seeing a lot of people was cool.
on almost the last hole I saw a group looking for a lost disc and as I played thru I asked the guy if he put his name
and phone # on the disc, he said he didn't.
I kinda felt bad, but it's a lesson I learned a long time ago.
your chance of someone calling you about a lost disc is 0 if there is no name & number.
your chance of someone returning a lost disc WITH name & #??? I'm not sure, but its gotta be better than 0 :)
anyways. Thanks again Ross for returning my disc. I have renewed faith and I hope it gained you some good Karma as well.
