    Baskets stolen from Ft Steilacoom!!!!!!

    On Sunday, January 24th, overnight the thieves struck again. Our club spent over 1000.00 dollars in 2009 to replace stolen baskets. Its only January and the #@$%!!*&^% thieves stole three more baskets. Thats right! Three more baskets were taken over night.
    We will begin pulling all baskets in the park today. The Southeast course will be the first course to be pulled today. Until we can get the county to help us secure the park at night, the baskets on the southeast course will remain in storage.
    Our sincerest appologies to all of our honest park users who will be affected by this blight on the community. If you are the one who has taken one of the seven baskets stolen over the last 2 years, we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law.
    A reward will be offered to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of the individuals responsible for theft of our equipment.

    Sincerely,

    a golfer who cant golf at his home course anymore!

    He also posted that information on the Lake Stevens page. I contacted him and gave him Mark Kilmer's number and they have talked. I don't believe the baskets he saw were stolen, so no reward for the Rickster....

    Is the course playable at this time? Looks like some baskets are out from the posts above. Making the trip from Spokane on Memorial weekend and was hoping to play a course while I was there.

    With today's technology, isn't there a way to put a chip into or onto the baskets somehow? How many pets have chips used to relocate them, the same idea could be done for these baskets, you're more than likely not going to just recover a basket, but much more! I realize the cost, but in the long run it might be worth it.

    there is always work to be done out there, and there doesnt need to be an organized party to get it done. theres a week left hopefully before the baskets come back and with this bad weather for the next few days, its looking like a good time to get some done. theres always fairways to be raked and limbs to be hauled away so feel free to help out whenever! we got alot done this weekend and hopefully the course will be back soonly

    Steili Update...

    So here is an update about our situation. We think we have solved the issue with the lock and tab protection problem, as well as securing chain and basket collars. It has been a great learning experience for us all.
    Believe me when I tell you that closing this park has left a void in the community. So anyway, finalizing security protocols asap and then we wait for materials from venders to arrive. So it will be at least a couple weeks to re-opening the whole park.
    I do want to thank Ryan DeRoche for kicking in 250.00 cash to put toward new locks and to an anonymous (to this point) doner of a new basket. A dozen people or so have come out and donated their time at the course with the upgrades.
    One of the upgrades was to dig up all the collars. We decided to move all the chainstars onto the northwest course. So the NW will have all the same type of upgraded set ups. One course down. one course to go
    Chris Chick has also been very busy with the bench upgrade project. He has completed his work and the park looks great! lots of seats for old weary bones.
    We are not done yet though. I just wanted to acknowledge everybody's work so far.
