      I resent the term REAL baskets as much as I resent the term "REAL golf". Horning's baskets are every bit as REAL as any old wire basket. Let's see you make one. They just don't catch REAL well. However, they are equally finicky at all times, and I would gladly play a PDGA event on them. I guess I am just not as serious as Ken.

          First, when I made the original post, I knew I would get a reaction about the baskets from somebody. However, let it be shown that I never once said the baskets at Horning's aren't real:

          Someone else made the distinction with "real" baskets. Not I. Regardless, it seems someone has touched a nerve!

          But while we are on the subject, let me just state that I am a huge fan of homemade baskets (I have on many occasions stated that the Lunchtime course would lose much of its charm if the baskets were replaced with "real" baskets!). However, not all homemade baskets are created equal. I am a fan of (almost) any baskets as long as they are consistent. IMHO, the baskets at hornings are anything but consistent.

            It was Bob who used the term "REAL baskets", not Ken, sorry if I quoted the posts wrong, the stupid "no nested quotes" thing screwed me up. Also, I agree that the baskets catch inconsistently at Horning's, especially on course 1, but I think they do so with consistent inconsistency.

              My sincere apologies for offending your more sensitive side Gawain. As someone who is not a "real" disc golfer (I only pretend to be one on the internet) I chose my words inappropriately. Of course the baskets at Hornings are "real" and I myself LOVE them. As with the ones at Tom Pierce in Grants Pass and the ones at the Mud. I SHOULD have said "homemade". What IF the baskets at Hornings were "factory" made? Would that be a viable third course?

                Hmmm, what are the opinions on playing a PDGA tournament at Lake Stevens, where the baskets actually are PDGA approved?

                  1. I've never played at Lake Stevens
                  2. I do know about the baskets at Lake Stevens
                  3. I will never play a PDGA event at Lake Stevens
                  4. I will likely never play a non-PDGA event at Lake Stevens

                    Here's one of the culprits:


                    For the record, I wouldn't play a PDGA event there either--no way I'd want to gamble my rating (stellar as it is) with those. I'd play an inexpensive casual tourney there though.

                      Remember, lack of smileys in my posts does not indicate lack of love. It's all good. Actually, smileys are a good indicator of my BAC.

                      I would play a PDGA at Lake Stevens or Hornings. A common misconception: "playing a course with wacky baskets would reduce my rating". Everyone would have to play the same course, same baskets, so your rating would only go down if you played poorly relative to the field, and relative to how you normally play.

                        Well, not entirely true.

                        People that have learned the magic technique for putting at Lake Stevens have a HUGE advantage over others who are otherwise good putters but haven't played there (or played there enough to figure the baskets out).

                          Now don't you start talkin' smack about Lake Disc Rejector! I own me a piece of that dubs record. Good thing we were playin' for dollas that time!

                              Has anyone looked into whether or not this is viable? I've only been there once or twice, but it seems like a great piece of land. Is there enough usable space that doesn't interfere with the other park uses and natural areas?

                                We are not looking at putting in a permanent course (yet) so a reserved park use for the tourney could get away with more than a shared use permanent course could.
