By the way, Rist is wrong when he says "If you get one, you usually sign the basket". The huge majority of people who get aces do NOT sign the basket. Period.
If Mr. Rist owns those baskets he can do what he wants. I definitely respect the work he did to get the course installed! If he doesn't own the baskets I am pretty sure the City wouldn't support the tagging. Basket tagging is NOT cool or a good thing to do.
Mr Rist did build the baskets himself, but he also donated them to the park. I agree with the last post about signing the disc. You're right, the majority of people I know don't sign the baskets, a few do and I don't really care either way. I stand corrected now that I know so many people are offended by a name and date on a basket. Maybe if more courses put up "ace poles" like the one at The Grove in Cottage Grove people would be less inclined to sign the basket. Matter of fact, I'm gonna get one down at Wennerberg to maybe spare those nice new baskets some sharpie.
