By the way, I don't see why anyone cares if people jump onto a course on a hole other than #1, as long as they move faster (or at least the same speed) as the people "behind" them.
Joe County Parks require a "park permit" fee, not a "day-use" fee. This fee went up from $2 to $4 Jan. of last year as a result of budget cuts and certain parks being close to the chopping block. The 'outsider' problem escalated this summer and is indeed an issue with the park peeps. They are currently working with the city zoning/street peeps to see what can be done.
Adam, I think that taking cuts is rude and much worse than walking in for free and if you ever see Emma and I behind you with our Eclipser's you may want to let us know that you for sure started on hole one.
