As many of you know, Disc Golf World has encouraged people to return lost discs to us to facilitate their return. When we get a found disc, we immediately call or email the owner. Sometimes, we make a second call. Although many discs have been reunited with their owners, we are now sitting on nearly 200 discs that have not been claimed in at least six months. We need to get rid of them.
Starting June 1, we are going to offer these discs for sale with the proceeds going towards the Kansas City Wide Open. We will be open this weekend and encourage you to stop by if you remember us calling you about a disc a long time ago, and you never came for it. Of course, if you find your disc in the for-sale boxes after the sale begins, you may claim it. We have a separate stack of about 40 discs that we have called recently. (Within 6 months.)
Moving forward, we're going to start marking on the found discs the day we make the call to its owner, and will hold those discs for 60 days. After that time, they will become for-sale discs.
I know a lot of people contact the found disc's owner and tell them that they will take it to Disc Golf World. While you're always welcome to come to the store, unless you get a call from Disc Golf World, the disc probably hasn't been delivered to us yet. We strive to contact disc owners as soon as they are returned to us.
Thanks to everyone who keep the community spirit alive by trying to get discs back to their owners.
