I've thought a lot about what it would be like it we had 7 baskets stolen from one of our courses here in Spokane. I was wondering if all the baskets were bolt cut or just plain wrested out of the ground cement and all?
If they were bolt cut I've been thinking that the various basket companies need to re-configure their designs so that a thief only has one option, and that is dragging it out cement and all. Not many thieves are interested in working too hard.
We're putting in a redesign of the Downriver. I hope (God willing and weather permitting) that we have it done before the Downriver Open - April 10th & 11th.
We just got the green light from the Park Department today. Our board approved a welder and fellow disc golfer to design a way so that the locks cannot be bolt cut. There would be some kind of metal structure around the locks so that a thief couldn't get a bolt cutter on the lock.
Sounds like you guys are thinking about something similar. Hope it works out for you. I'd like to see a picture of what you come up with. I also hope that they find the ones who took your stuff and get your baskets back.
It' would be great to see some of you guys over here for the Downriver event in April.
In His Grip,
