So there is a happy ending to this story, (aside from learning value of the generosity of the DG community) Last night a local Tacoma woman called me to tell me that she had my disc golf bag, she was clearly nervous about calling me due to the criminal nature of the issue. We met up today, only about a mile from where my bag was taken, from what I could gather without wanting to push it too much, someone she knew from the neighborhood dropped the bag off at her house (I have an eerie feeling it might have been one of her children) she said her ex-husband was a disc golfer and told her what it was and that she should check the discs for a phone number. She was an incredibly nice person, she said she was "sick of seeing things like this in her neighborhood" and even more impressively she told me that she was returning the bag to me in secret and that the culprit would "flip out if he knew I was returning it." She wouldn't even take the reward I had offered to her for bringing my bag back. It just goes to reinforce my belief that the vast majority of people on this planet are good, kind-hearted souls, it's only the desperate and the destitute who commit acts like stealing bags out of cars.
To the folks in Portland who sent up discs, I'm coming back to town in 3 weeks and I can bring back your discs, (amazingly, all 21 of my discs where in the returned bag
) again, Jeff, Jman, Dan, Toby, Mikk, thank you so much for your generosity
Practical lesson learned: Don't leave my bag in my back seat
