I was competing in the 2005 pro worlds in Allentown, Pa. and during my final round at Little Lehigh I had a valued disc go into the creek near the basket (I think it was hole 4). If I weren't in a tournament I would've promptly went in after it since it was only about 5 feet off the bank and 2 feet deep. However I felt it would be improper to delay subsequent groups by taking the 3 minutes or so required to scale down the muddy bank, wade in, retrieve it and then climb back up. So with only three holes left I decided to return for it at the conclusion of my round.
When I returned 20 minutes later it was gone. I checked at the score table and the lost and found table at tournament central yet my disc hadn't been turned in. The following day my disc still hadn't been turned in. My disc had my name, pdga # and current phone # on it yet no call was ever made.
This peeved me that at the disc golf world championships that someone would do this. Just the day before I found an abandoned roc in the middle of the fairway (long after play had ended for the day) at the same course and promptly returned it to the lost and found desk at tournament central. I wish the same courtesy would have been extended to me.
Okay rant over.
