Trash...(just a rant)

Okay just a little of me ranting and raving about something that has been really getting under my skin recently.
Trash.
So it doesn't seem to matter which course I'm at, whether it be Prairie Center, Shawnee Mission, Rosedale, or even WYE, but all the courses in this area have trash cans all over the place.  I find trash dumped on holes literally about fifty feet away from the trashcans all the time.  And I know its not everyone doing it, hell, I know its probably not even anyone on this website, but it really annoys me how lazy people can be, especially when it comes to maintaining the courses we all love.

Once again, sorry, I know it probably isn't anyone on here, just needed to get that off my chest.

David E:
Only thing I would disagree with is SMP - there aren't any cans on the course. There is one near the first tee, one sort of near #8 fairway but beyond that P&R really needs to put a few cans out there.

I do however agree and this has been discussed on other posts; just bring out everything you take in and since there are a bunch of lazy scums that apparently like to use the courses, take a few extra pieces of trash each time you play!

Rick Rothstein:
This has been an ongoing battle since the first disc golf courses went in. All we, who do care, can do, is to patiently pick up after people who apparently never learned that you don't "s_ _ _ where you live." A pet peeve of mine is players who do not field strip their cigarette butts.

Some very early PDGA materials back when I joined in 1983 reminded us to leave the course in better condition than we found it. This is still good advice. I will play a little game within the game to make the course better. If I make a really good shot, I'll pick up some trash to celebrate. If I make a really awful shot, I'll pick up some trash as penance. There are a few people in town who always carry a plastic bag when they play to gather up trash.

As we prepare to welcome over 900 players to the Worlds, I hope that many of us will continue to make the courses better than we found them.

Rick
