We know that emergency services and the utility company were notified, but was the property owner (City?) notified that a condition existed that may have been likely to cause serious injury or death?

A few minutes of Google lawyering tells me that, with respect to a trespasser, the legal theory of "premises liability" might only hold the city responsible if they knew that the dangerous artificial condition existed and failed to give reasonable warning to prevent injury or death.

The hours of most parks are usually sun up to sun down. And one of the possible conclusions to this event could be the installation of a gate by the city.




Rosedale is my home course, and I was absolutely gutted to hear what happened Sunday morning.  Our reaction after this tragedy is natural and predictable.  We're all upset and want the cops, power company and/or the city to take the blame.

I know the news has asked the question "Why was the downed line left unattended by BPU for so long?"  I think the real question is "Why was the downed line left unattended by anybody for so long?"  Laying in the grass, it was a deadly trap.

If the tournament was called off because some armed bear traps were found scattered around the practice basket, would people still have left the park without knowing the traps were disarmed or cordoned off?

Man dies at Rosedale Park after being electrocuted.

From what I heard, this power line went down during the Advanced Men's round in the Wide Open when the storm came through around 5:00PM on Saturday.  The biggest questions here are "Why wasn't it marked as dangerous?" and "Why was it still live over ten hours later?"

Will C-Tier be able to check in on Thursday at the Ramada, or must we wait until Saturday at Rosedale?  It would be a shame if C-tier players packs weren't ready on Thursday when we attend opening ceremonies.

Also, I am a proud owner of a KCWO Glo Roc3 purchased at DGW, so proud in fact that I immediately noticed a problem when I couldn't find my name in the program.

I'm looking for a ride to, and from, the tournament.  Is anyone else leaving, then returning to Rosedale?

This happened...

I took the GoPro.  Here are some snaps.  Maybe I'll post video.





I cut my ribbons 18" long; that was almost not long enough for all the snow today as you can tell from the third picture.

Rosedale / Re: Hole 16 - House For Sale
« on: January 10, 2013, 09:07:45 AM »
That house is way overpriced right now considering the neighborhood median income is $30,994.

Using this formula, you can tell if a house is overpriced or not:

Code: [Select]
90% of Monthly Repayment / (70% of Neighbor's Income / 12 Months)
If the answer is over 20%, then the house is overpriced.  In this example the Percent of Average Monthly Income of Neighbors for this house is a whopping 36%

Code: [Select]
657*0.9 / ((30994*0.7)/12) = .36
Considering all this, This house should, more appropriately, be priced at or under $76,000 that would be a monthly payment of $356 (76000*.00469)

Code: [Select]
356*0.9 /((30994*0.7)/12) = .20

Tournaments / Re: Rosedale Winter Wonderland - Unsanctioned

I'm D.S. who threw 130 in Intermediate.  That was 58 down under and 72 up top :o ; my worst round ever.

If I would have thrown my average round up top, between 58 and 62, I would have been considered a bagger too.  I don't know about the guys below me, but they could have either played up from Rec., or just had a bad day like me, which led to the ten-throw gap on the intermediate scores.
