stolen basket
« on: April 30, 2013, 08:02:16 AM »
The practice basket at Lakeside Hills has been stolen. There is a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the low life piece of sh1t that took it. It looks like the theft would be considered a class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in the county jail.

Before theories about evil Dwarves stealing baskets in the middle of the night start popping up;

How many known private courses are in the area? Any length, even if it's just one or two baskets?

Are these baskets made from metal that would be easy to sell for scrap?

Not much but if you were hard up and could do it, scrap is about $15-$20/dollars on a great place, normally ~$10 though is what I was told when I asked this a few years back.  It doesn't matter if it is galvanized or not for scrap....just plain metal scrapping

So we can assume that the person who stole it didn't do it for scrap.

Now how many little personal/private courses are we all aware of in the area? I know there is a course in Argentine/KCK that might be worth checking out.

I have been watching craigslist also.

Hopefully the police will notify the scrap yards....but like Jack said....that is a bunch of work and risk for $15.

Please let know the place that pays $15 for the amount of steel a disc golf basket is made from.

closer to $8-$10, but the last time that I talked with someone about Mike I talked with a scrap place off like 14th and VanBrunt.

At this rate we just need to be on the look out for a new 18 hole course in town.
Calm down, this is just for fun.

so how was this one removed, was it a lock picking again?  If so, there is cause for concern amongst all the courses.  The basket at Cliff stolen last year didn't leave any remnants of the lock.....but if we count that in the last 12 months I can think of 4 baskets taken from the area.

The thing is that you need to have space, and disc golfers tend to find each other.  If you went to a place that was "private" for a course that had 18 different types of baskets from someone that you had never seen play, what would you think?

If it was someone that was good that we saw win baskets, maybe....but the reality is that unless this person (if the same) is planning a course to be kept to themselves or a few other friends, they will be caught.

If it is simply an action of people getting a basket for their own pleasure, that is a whole other story.....

I just spoke with Narin, that placement didn't have a permanent basket. It was not taken.
Calm down, this is just for fun.
