Thanks to Joey for contacting JPZ today to let him know that hole 14's basket was pulled out of the ground and hidden in the woods about 120ft in, along with the bench and a few tee signs.... Looks like someone or a group of folks did this and were drinking beers as well and spray painting trees while making a mess all at the same time. Beer cans were littered about the area. I should have collected a few for fingerprints, but am not sure if that would be cause enough for police to get involved.... any thoughts?
I don't know why golfers would do this.... if the county sees that this is happening, they will pull the course and there will be no JP Moseley course.
I commend Joey for putting the basket back in it's position, but I want to let everyone know that I removed the basket today and busted all the concrete off the bottom of it. I will be going out on Saturday morning at 7:30am to re-install the basket with enough concrete that it won't be coming out of the ground unless we want it to.
I almost wanted to wait and see if anyone came back to get it tonight as it seems that was their intention.
If you see anyone at a disc golf course that are littering, trashing the course, vandalizing, leaving cigarette butts (yes, even that is litter!), please take a stand and let them know that they need to pick it up and/or leave...actually smoking is not allowed at Henry Co. parks....but that's not the point, the point is people not respecting the courses they are given to play on.
I am not sure if Dan is going to contact the parks guys or not as this might be better left to us for now until something serious happens and then we'll contact the parks officials.
The sun shelter was also tore up a bit as someone threw a rock at the newly layed-in JP Moseley artwork supplied by Wade but they missed the artwork and scratched the clear coat really bad which can be fixed to look a little better than it is now.
I really wish we could get more traffic at this park so people don't feel so comfotable vadalizing things.
I just hope that karma will play out on these fools
