I agree with you that whoever finds the discs should have the choice of keeping them or giving them back. That said, I don't agree with watching people's shots, finding the disc and then keeping it. If I see someone throw a disc in, I will get it and give it back to them. This year alone I have saved people some big $$ by retrieving their errant shots. Also, if I am finding discs and someone describes their disc and I have it, I will give it back. I scored a champ beast and a champ roadrunner after finding people's discs one day. They insisted on giving me one of their old discs in return, so things worked out nicely.
You guys who think every disc should be returned have to remember, it is hard work finding these things. I've had to deal with rude people, leeches, weather, rocks etc. What I'm saying is, don't bitch when you throw your favorite disc in the drink. Use something expendable on water holes.
Yes, EXPO is nasty. But I agree with ya terry on the watching and getting and keeping. Those are the pond divers that piss me off the most. i.e. Mile High Classic, there wa sa guy who was watching discs go into the water, he'd get them then charge a 10$ return fee unless he liked the disc. There was on player who thru his starfire in, and he was gonna go out and get it once we got to that side (hole 13 inlet) and this jerk went in, grabbed it and told him he liked the starfire, but would give it back for 20$. WTF is that! Not cool, those are the pond divers that piss me off.
The returned discs I'm talkin about is if you go in to get yours and happen to find someone else's disc. I'd say please make an effort to return it.
