I found my third "unidentifiable owner" disc today in the pines bordering 6/7. I'd like to return it, but discs without a phone number or e-mail address are difficult to return. I've had luck returning the previous two with no markings. This one, though, is a disc that I don't have in my collection, and without a name or number on the disc, I don't feel too guilty about throwing it. I'll happily adopt it unless someone speaks up.

Found: A new owner for a disc in great shape with no specific contact info on the back.

Lost: Your disc unless you start ID'ing it. Get out your markers and ID your discs!

Cheers!

I went for a dive the other day and recovered three discs from the depths of the Ottawa River. Two of them were labelled, and their owners or proxies will be attending League Night tonight to collect them. The other disc, which was old plastic, and appeared to have been there for a year or two, was unlabelled.

On a hole that has two jungles, groundhog holes, chaotic overgrowth, and a plastic magnet river, you'd figure that people would at the very least label their discs before throwing. Gheesh!

If you label them, and they are found by golfers, you'll get them back. One of the recovered discs had been in there since the day before the Plaid, while the other one (which held up quite well) had been down there for close to 2 years.
