Clean up your disc karma

Somebody out there in the disc-golf world [”Outdoors: On and Off Course,” Aug. 1] must not know about the bad karma rule. My husband and I went out to Richmond Hill about two years ago with two putters and two drivers, new, with our names in them. We played a couple holes, then decided to take a walk because the course was too crowded.

We buried our discs in the leaves at least 50 yards off the course, only to find them gone when we got back. Never, ever got a call. As you can imagine, we haven’t been too excited about the sport since.

So much for the karma theory. (Our number is on the back of the discs. Maybe somebody regrets it by now.)

    Why would you do that? In some places that is considered littering.
    My guess is that someone who is a huge fan of the sport took the odd find to save them from the demo and to put the discs back into play…I am sure they are enjoying that much more.

    Why didn’t you take them with you? Do you really miss them that much if after 2 years you come back looking for them?

    I wonder if the city knew that rule when they took the disc golf park away !

    This town just gets stranger and stranger everyday !

    I’m not sure what happened here. I’ve never played disk golf but in regular golf if you find a ball in the woods-you keep it. I’m also not sure that this offense registers on the karmic scale. If they were important to you, engraved or whatever, you should have taken them with you. I can’t imagine that you couldn’t bring youself to play again because of this. Maybe you just weren’t that into it.
    mtndogs-this is a wierd town!
