First, I will say again i agree with what you are trying to do, but our views of "stolen" items are way different. It doesn't matter private park, public park or my living room someone looses something, gives up on looking for it and leaves no information on how to return it, they are S.O.L. Finding and keeping a blank disc shouldn't label someone as a criminal and incur "consequences". Second, things look more complicated by the daily task of retrieving discs out of the pond. I would hope th ... more

True, but possession is nine tenths of the law and finding something left behind doesn't make it stolen either. Plainer and simpler.

Found discs that have no information or numbers on them are hard to consider stolen in the first place. Lets say throw shop rented out discs, and one of those were found and kept then yes definitely stolen. But something purchased somewhere else and brought there and lost, no. I'm sure most people return or make efforts to return found discs with info, but it will never be a complete success. Unlabeled discs in my opinion are fair game. Someone wants to throw over a hazard, or in the woods witho ... more

I'm not at doubles because I'm with my girlfriend's family (they just lost someone yesterday). I might be able to make it by tonight, but it isn't likely to be before 6:00. How do I contact someone if I make it there after-hours?

Really Joes? The whole point of this is there is a problem with golfers going in the pond and stealing discs. Solution? No one is allowed in the pond.

Just use some acetone and remove the name & number from the disc. Problem solved, dudes.

I just want to understand about hole 13. Say i am 10" off the shore, disc in full view, i could be banned for getting my hand wet to retrieve it? That doesn't seem right to me. This could be an ongoing problem until a reasonable and understandable solution is presented. Instead of the my way or the highway approach posted below. Also has anyone thought of a lockable drop box for discs on the outside of the shop for discs found after hours?

Just don't throw in the pond and there would be no issues

Signs are posted. It reads 'Do NOT enter the pond'. End of story.

I've removed a couple gators from the pond already. Sharks are more fierce.

I assumed the shop phone number would've rang inside the closed shop and wasn't going to just leave them lying on the steps, especially if I expected to be back the following week anyway. It takes me 40 minutes to get to your course, so it's not exactly convenient to "just drop by" on another day. I also managed to contact three of the owners already (phone numbers inked on the back), who plan to pick them up from the Throw Shop after I drop them off tomorrow. I don't understand the lack of e ... more
