    Not a word.

    Which, honestly, does not surprise me.

    Articus,

    As one of the people who helped design and install the disc golf course at Stubb Stewart State Park, it really breaks my heart to see people vandalizing the course. Yes, carving your name into our baskets is vandalism; plain and simple. I understand your wanting to mark the occasion when you get an ace, but PLEASE show some maturity and respect for the hard work of the people who put that course in, and just have your friends sign your own disc and not our baskets. As you can see by the thread this vandalism has stirred up, the disc golf community in Portland has a long memory, and your name is not one easily forgotten.

    If this was not your handywork, please accept my apology.

    seriously, people, no one freaking cares about your aces.
    Great Response Emma. Thanks for your restoration work. Much appreciated by many I'm certain!

    However I am curious about this phenom, if a frisbee Shamon exist amongst us may he/she please blow the good distance JuJu dust my way & help me with my hucks (my Ultimate & DG hucks, please). Sorry all, I'm a firm believer in VooDoo especially for betta flying discs.

    I am keepin my eye open for one of these chargers. I'm gonna charge up & let it fly. If this disc charger works, I'm ALL IN! If not I'll line up to scrub some baskets & benches.

    Good JuJu yes! Bad JuJu NO!

    Weird, man. I sent him a note with a link to this thread and asked if it was him. Of course... it is. If you look through his likes, Disc Golf Depot is listed.

    Articus... bad move, dude.

    I will be looking him up in the directory tomorrow, and giving his store a call ... I will be tactful In my conversation ,I will tell him to make it right.... , contact: Jeff, stumptown, whomever he deems .... But make it right , if he chooses not to , he is taking his chances at criminal charges ,( the least..)..... I do not need to even say how much more can be done to tarnish his "name" as a disc golfer... Or even mention the bodily harm he is in danger of......... I will post back after my conversation that he cannot avoid from me
    BTW i live 200 miles from him , and the course in question

    I recently played a course in Atascadero, CA ~ Heilmann Park ~ many of their wooden benches had some cool engravings done with a router (not done by graffiti jerks with a magic marker) ~ I remember a surfer riding a wave and one was a memorial to someone who had passed on. So maybe a good engraving of a disc charger would placate these yahoos. But then the yahoos would then magic marker them anyway to commemorate their great shot after using the charger.

    Everyone thinks they are Banksy these days. Sad indeed.

    The disc charger graffiti has hit white river hard, its everywhere. I have been trying to keep that crap scraped off the benches and trees, but there are many more ass hats with markers these days. I have seen more graffiti in the last year than in the 22 years of playing disc golf. I gota get some black paint and fix all the benches...
