Yup, Prairie Center in Olathe had a basket disappear (later found in a tree or creek or something?) and Wilbur Young in Blue Springs had a basket stolen. Most courses in the area you can tell which placement the basket is at with minimal inconvenience.  The trash along the road at Wilbur Young is actually an iffy issue. John talked to the parks department about it at our meeting, and it's actually not a road that is "in" Blue Springs. The road along the side of Young is on AA and is actually county road and the trash along that road serviced by them. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be responding to the issue.

Basket was found in the creek, lock was broken, husband found the bench in a tree and pulled it down and sign was ripped out of the ground. Great idea in theory but some people are jack offs

No Engineers in the group?

Here is a variation on the Youngle Solution for multiple placements. Nothing fancy.

Add more "legs" for more placements. If you only need two, use only two.

The OTHER piece of this is we would need to COORDINATE all courses on the same painting scheme.  Which we should be doing as well.  That in itself would be controversial I am sure, but something to look at as well in the future.

It should go.....
Red=Short
White=Middle
Blue=Long
Black/Gold=Championship

But in some locations we have more than one.  If we could get everyone on the same color schematics for starters that would be great.  If we needed to add a color, GREEN would go in front of Red, and then we could look at putting in an Orange between Blue and Black/Gold.

I think we should tackle that first.

That's great Jack, I get why you picked those colors, but I don't think green is a way to go.  Think about all the sleeves that were painted red that have been hit by something.  Now you want to paint one green and have it blend in with the grass.  Red should always be the shortest and then extra colors added between blue and black/gold, IMO.

 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. I just think of the printed tee signs, where all the colors look the same as they're faded on the printed map.

That is the proper color schematics for golf, which does help crossover information.  Green would ABSOLUTE last consideration as I don't think it should be used but......that's the way it should be done.  "according to lawn of Jack" :-D

Having numbers doesn't truly codify the process though.

By having colors you could in theory say Red front 9 blue back nine...

By having numbers you could....but since we paint them, lets make it standardized for ease of everyone.

Having a well made sign without printed/laminated signs helps that issue out. Also, if they are made with printed/laminated signs they should be replaced once they are faded. We aren't talking about a large expenditure.

 ::)   Thats the norm..on colors for basket location. The screw idea..is what it is..screwed..lol..
I played Binder at Jefferson City..where they use the screws in the signs...Terrible signs actually. .But on that note..you might like the new signs at Lakeshore Disc Golf course in Pleasant Hill..they are the best signs ,  that I have seen..anywhere .
Oh and did you hear those Jawhawkers..have spread bird flu all over the country..

It should go.....

Red=Short
White=Middle
Blue=Long
Black/Gold=Championship

I LIKE IT!!!

I wish it were, but unfortunately it isn't that way at all the courses.

I have seen great signs, they are expensive, but worth it if you don't alter the course......
