Litterbugs - STOP IT!
« on: January 14, 2008, 07:20:45 AM »
Yesterday my son and I picked up a twelve pack's worth of assorted beer cans strewn across the length of the course. I'm sure that no one that reads the forum would make the mistake of drinking beer at SMP, nor would they carelessly throw cans on the ground, but just in case that was you, STOP IT!.

Here Here!

Seriously folks, they will get you there if you drink.....they have their own POLICE DEPARTMENT, not just Rangers, but actually LAW OFFICERS, it will be a sad day when we have to report here the next fund raising event to help Disc Golfer IDIOT out of jail from SMP....

It wasn't me as I haven't been able to convince a group of people to go to a disc golf course where the imbibing of beer is prohibited and pimped out park rangers are issued weapons and badges and called a police force.

Ah, but they are not park rangers, they are actually police officers in the SMP land.  The rangers have other things to worry about like Deer, and picnic baskets....

I have put in a request with the park manager to get at least 4 industrial  trash cans at strategic points on the course until we get the benchs in. Until then please do your part to pick up after yourself, and if your a star citizen like the folks in this thread, please help the community and clean up after the inconsiderate!

Thanks for making your park beautiful!

the litter is a bothersome component, but the alcohol is a bigger issue, you really must watch it out there folks, this is a serious matter, and although I don't like the idea of a public park not allowing alcohol, be SMART, don't ruin it for all of us.

It continues.  We played on Friday, there were some high school kids picking up garbage in the park, at one point near hole three....had a few bags full.

Anyway we saw at least a dozen beer cans, picked up some various other items....

It's not just a SMP problem. Rosedale needs a good spring cleaning and we played Water Works this AM, same holds true there.
Only difference is those course HAVE trash cans!

Pick Up Your sh1t People.....(pardon my French)

Spoke to a park ranger today, actually they stopped us because our dogs were leashed to eachother but we weren't actively holding them.   He said that they are cracking down on people trashing up the park.  My folks and family went out and tossed 12-18 and it was quite clear.    We always pick up trash that we see laying around.

Hopefully they will install some trash cans and pads to help out the park.
