However, if the PDGA will give approval, then I am looking forward to putting the baskets at HH in Worlds!
Respectfully, I'd like to encourage Bob to use standard baskets for the "gold" course. Especially if Worlds is a consideration. I totally understand budgetary restrictions, but if you're using all that land and trying to create a "Worlds" class course that will be there for years getting thousands of rounds of play, that people will love, and that could become the focus for big, awesome tournaments with camping, fishing, (music?
) and potentially a Worlds bid, do you really want homemade baskets, even if they get PDGA approval?
