      So you picked up half the bottle caps this week at Pier that you picked up in a week at Pier the previous month.

      Next week, are you only going to pick up 25 at Pier? Why do you hate disc golf?

        just as that option was meant as a JOKE, so was my response choosing it. Chill

            Many folks who claim to hate litter and always clean the parks don't think twice about throwing butts and caps on the ground. Apparently that's not really litter.

            Like the knuckleheads who attempt to hide their beer cans at the base of a tree or cleverly hide it in a small opening. Apparently it's not litter if it's semi-hidden.

              My favorite littering of any substance is people who throw garbage at the base of the garbage cans. Like it's okay because it's around the area that it should be in.

                That's usually indicative of garbage cans being full and stuff overflowing onto the ground.

                Which is indicative of a problem with the attitude of disc golfers and park users in general.

                Here's something to try: if you see someone throw trash on the ground, walk over there and pick it up in front of them. You might make a positive impression with those people.

                  ... i don't always find myself agreeing with mr. parks ... but in this case...

                  a while back at pier we were playing hole 4 and noticed a fellow stash his big ol' 22oz bottle at the base of a tree... we discussed amongst ourselves that perhaps he was just setting it there while he teed off and i said, "if it's still there when we get there... i'm totally going to give it back to him."

                  sure enough, we got to hole 7, there was the bottle, but luckily he and his buddies were just teeing off on 9... i jogged myself on over and tried to quietly and sneakily like a ninja just put the bottle in his bag, but his buddies totally blew my cover with their tiny giggles... he turned around & caught me red handed and i was like, "dude, you totally forgot this over at hole 7, i just thought i'd run it over so you didn't have to go back for it."

                  ... this fellow now makes a huge point of recycling his bottles in front of me... who knows what he does when i'm not around, but at least it worked a little bit... and now he knows... i'm always watching...

                    I was there, and that was so totally awesome!!

                    I had a soccer buddy who would pick up cigarette butts when people tossed them, and give them back saying I think you dropped this. It was so funny, but I would personally not be so keen to pick up others cigarette butts.

                      I didnt even vote, because all of the options for the poll are negative option.
                      not a balanced poll.
                      my 2 cents

                        Good story, well done! However, I will say that this "move" is easier to execute as a female. I saw the same exact undertaking result in a fight between two males. Just sayin. Although I would like to educate a person who liters freely, I usually find it easier to pick up the trash myself.
