To Jack. Good post above. And I will be glad to play a round with you there anytime.
To Jamie, I think FTL should play here soon.

Well....someone shoots a gun and you don't visit the area anymore.....your decision. As for the trash been busy but probably gonna get out there to clean it up some because as an investor in the land I do that. I invest my time for others to enjoy and will spend an hour cleaning up others waste to enjoy it when it is clean. Others just point and say why isn't this clean?
Well yes, I do tend to stay away from places where someone is shooting. I think that's a pretty good decision. Let's see, your child says to you, I heard a lot of gunfire at the park, what do you say to her. Oh, just ignore that crap and go play. The things you do for disc golf are legendary, thanks for investing your time.
Cops come to get folks, did you call the police or just ignore it because "someone else did it already"? The more attention that we show the police we are in the park, the more attention they will give as well to protect and serve in the areas that they are made aware of. So I say when you hear something like that, call them as well.....
You made a poor assumption that there were only two choices. I didn't call the police or ignore it. I told the two mountain bikers to go talk to the crew down the hill that was working on the road. They are out there every day, if they thought it was dangerous they could call it in and you know the police would respond to them. Thats what they did and the police did respond.
I have been held at gunpoint in OP, I think that I should count that as a place that I should never visit again as well......I had a co-worker shot and killed next to Wy-CO, I guess I should call that another place to never go.
With the interesting life you lead you may run out of places you can go.
The bottom line folks, we live in an environment of crazy people with access to many weapons that clearly aren't being used solely for protection or hunting. It isn't just one area that has it, it is EVERY area, you have to be safe and conscientious where ever you are at, what ever city you are in.
Yep, what you said. I do my best to avoid crazy people carring guns. It is every area, so I try not to go to the worst ones.
Choosing to "boycott" a park in my mind means that the people that shouldn't be doing things "win" and we lose. Soon enough you won't be able to leave your house for fear of being shot is what you are saying? This course is now over 10 years in the ground. NO BODY has been shot on the disc golf course at Cliff Drive. Dead bodies dumped there, yes, broken windows, vandals, yes, but that same can be said at most of the courses that are over 10 years old as well.
Sorry, there are some areas where the crap people win. That's real life.
I don't encourage you to confront the gun men, but I also don't want to see an abdication of the park from those that shouldn't be there to use it properly. We are all working hard to have POSITIVE activity in the park, the notion that the "mountain bikers" called the cops shows that by having a multi-use park we are making strides.
Sorry, I know you didn't encourage me to confront the gunmen. But I had a gun and I would have been glad to confront them. To bad I had no legal backing
or any legal justification for doing so.
I am a firm advocate for either part of the problem or part of the solution, ignoring itmes to me has always been a part of the problem.
Yep, as stated above, I didn't ignore it. You are wrong, I was not part of the solution and i certainly was not part of the problem.
You can do as you see fit, but for me the knowledge that mountain bikers took the initiative to do what is right says more to me than the fact that gunfire happened again in the city......
I am glad the mountain bikers are there and hope they continue to make the park a better place. I know it's your trade mark, but when you write so much crap it's hard to respond to all of it. I'm old and not very sharp so I need to keep it short and simple.
I saw a kid shoot off a potato gun there, saw a teenage girl learning to drive narrowly miss me before hitting a grate a busting her tire and axle and found a stack used condoms on the ground (sorry Jack, I left them there). None of that terrifies me as much as passing a police officer in Mission Hills in my Civic when I'm going 5 mph over.So are you suggesting a boycott of Mission Hills.
Sounds like a fun day at the park! Were they using proper hearing/eye protection, I hope?Nope, but at least they had on hoodies.
cliff driveWhy do I get the feeling that your messing with me.
Just another reason why WYCO is the greatest course in the world.Dang straight skippy.
JK is Jeff Kelley. Been around awhile and he likes to throw his own party.Thanks. Awesome, and incredible.
In reference to the cold as balls comment, my perspective is that that is a lovely catchall term for really really cold. Liz BB coined the term that we were freezing our fallopes off and had fallopes of steel when we played an especially cold windy round recently.
So in this thread people speak of giving up spots to women. As I read the posts about the first east v west there were women playing and it was part of tracy's original vision. What happened? Lack of interest from women and so all the spots went to men? Just curious. I haven't read the threads from later years so perhaps it is explained there.Really, are you and Miss Sunshine going to start that again.
So it's now allowed to recycle old captains? It seems like the West is just rolling with this.
my schedule is clear Thursday through Sunday.Could you caddy for me?
