<<"Hey guys I went ahead and PMed Bob Horning and asked how he felt about people writing on his baskets since my original post was pertaining to an incident that happened on his course. Below is his response to me that he said I could repost on this thread.
Hi Cindy, Actually it is OK, for to me it adds a personal touch to the course and lets the one who aced it have a nice way to connect and add their own individually to it. Eventually we'll have to repaint them all anyway, to as long as they don't get carried away or as long as their is no defacing then I don't have a problem.
Thanks for watching out for us, I do appreciate it greatly!!
When I get my first ace I still am only going to have my disc signed that's just how I feel personally on the subject.
PS I did sign the two baskets I aced at Horning's, but I did not sign the three aces I go at Leverich #2. Dang five in one year. I probably won't get another one for about five years now.
PSS Congrats on the Eagle.
Hi all, some folks bring up a very good point, that if it's done here what's to stop it from not encouraging it elsewhere, did not think of that good point. The reason I did not feel it was too bad here was two fold, one, hopefully folks would take more ownership and pride of the area and help keep a low impact on the area, and two, The baskets will need periodical painting so the markings disappear rather easily.
It sounds like a conscientious though is that the best thing to do is not have the markings, so as the weather permits I'll simply go around with a can of paint and take care of it. Live and learn.
I've been rather pressed for time lately, but I intend to address another matter soon. I will be looking to place another recycle can or two on the Meadow Ridge course to hopefully cut down on some of the beer cans out there, probably by basket #12 and on the road right below #17. The problem with the upper ridge line is access and trying to keep golf carts off the trails to help keep erosion down. My thanks to those who do watch out for the courses, it is much appreciated
