Look at you with the white knighting. Isn't that sweet...

Look there's nothing I or anyone has ever said on here that leads to less volunteering. People might use it as a convenient excuse (one that I'm happy to provide, BTW) but the truth is they arent volunteering because they don't feel like it and that's the end of it. The ones that get out and volunteer do so no matter what someone posts on a message board. The ones that use what's posted on a message board as an excuse not to volunteer can choke on a bag of dicks anyway.

People love to play the lottery (think ace fund) but are pissy about a voluntary donation to charity?

Did you miss the part where Mother Teresa over here suggested that the "charity" be tacked on in such a manner so that the entrants would be unaware of it? Yeah, that sounds voluntary like a MFer. ::)

Looked again.  Still don't see it.  I see her say voluntary several times though.

The post in question was edited.

Rule 1.  If it's not your disc, it's not your disc.
Rule 2.  If it's marked as someone else's disc, it's not your disc.
Rule 3.  If all  reasonable attempts to return the disc that is not your disc and marked as someone else's disc which you found have failed, it is now your disc.

The clown snagging your disc from the pond violated/skipped Rules 1 and 2.  He then attempted to sell it for monetary gain which could be considered a criminal act because the property was essentially lost/stolen.  Granted there is potential for he said/she said yet at the very least he should be labeled a crook and reported to eBay as well as blackballed in disc golf community.

The people that have been caught selling lost/found discs typically do get shunned/blackballed in the disc golf community. But at the same time, they often aren't the types that play events or show up at club functions anyway, so they probably don't care about being shunned or blackballed.

Bottom line, if you don't want to see your disc end up on eBay or craigslist, don't leave it at the park. If you decide to give up your search or decide not to dive into a pond after your disc, of course you would hope the person that finds it would return it to you. But you should also be prepared to accept that the person that finds it might not return it to you.

The sick and twisted mind of the liberal, where rather than given voluntarily on one's own accord, charity is forced via theft, trickery, and deceit.

Move 3's tee where I intended it to be...

That's odd because when we were pouring the pads back in '09, it had been moved down the hill and back a bit from when it was a wood chip pad, and you were saying back then that its present location was where you had intended it to be. :-\

I went through there yesterday evening, and people had come from miles around to see the new champion cottonwood. The line of cars resembled the scene from the movie Field of Dreams.

I would let you hunt our 50 acres up in Macon County, but it's 2.5-3hrs away and there is no shelter on site. You're welcome to try it out, but you'll either have to sleep in your vehicle, pitch a tent, drive 20+ miles to a motel, or just make it a day trip.

Cliff Drive / Re: Shared Use- MTBs and Disc Golf

Far as I know, the only portion of the trail that actually uses our DG fairways is the part that goes along hole #7.

I guess I don't underdstand the concern when it comes to Cliff Drive. There have been cars, cyclists, joggers, and dog walkers on Cliff Drive and Reservoir Dr for years, and there are holes that play along those roads, and yet we've somehow managed to make disc golf work up to this point. People park along 12 and 13 to party and drink and I cannot recall anyone being hit with a disc, at least not anything resulting in serious injury or damage. It's not as if the MTBers are going to be coming through there every 5 seconds. Maybe common sense isn't common, but I think it's common enough to allow disc golf and MTBing to coexist at Cliff Drive.

I just didn't like the idea of losing DG holes over it. Even if the MTB dudes ride right down the fairway on 7 or 8 at Cliff, it ain't like there's going to be a steady stream of them all day long. Let them ride through and then play the hole, not complicated at all.

John, I got your message, thanks. Obviously I would love to see a course in Independence, but I cannot attend the meeting due to work. There were times I used to look at maps of the city, trying to see where a good spot would be for a course. Hope you guys are successful in pitching the idea!

I am hopeful that Keizer will bring not only his 4 wheeler to help expedite this, but also remember his cables this time. 

No problem but what's up with this MAC tournament you're talking about? Are you saying you won't be present at the 8/2 workday due to the tournament? Some coworkers of mine have planned a shooting get-together for that morning as well, which I was going to skip in favor of attending the workday. But if you aren't going to be there to spearhead, I think I'd rather go to the shoot.
