There are major changes which will make this sport better and more accessible to our communities. Putting in the time and effort to make these changes on the course shows that you are willing to invest in the sport.
Bitching about how other people are ruining your fun by putting their initials on a basket is petty. 'Be the change you want to see in the world.' I personally think that abundant litter, and public drunkenness will taint our sport more than a couple initials on the pin... You don't see me starting a thread to bitch. Pick your battles and help people find a better way.
We are gonna disagree on this topic,that is part of life.
The question is: what will you do about it?
Funny thing is you sound just like a guy I know, and I am always proving him to think different, the right way... waste of effort? how hard is it to spread the word "do not tag baskets, tag your discs", hmm took me about 3 seconds to say it and 5 to type it?
I am not bishing cuz someone is ruining my fun, i'm bishing cuz I put the dang course in and just put the orange stickers on less than 2 weeks ago and someone already is writing on these brand new orange stickers that I had to work my butt off to fund raise to pay for!!! Once we let it happen, it will spiral out of control with all kinds of bs tags...
I put out 3 new garbage cans on the course today, 2 for trash and 1 for recycles on holes 8 and 15... I know I am a small minority of people who actually pick up trash as I play, but by setting an example and encouraging others to do the same, the trend will continue to spread, same as telling people about what to sign.
There are no "battles", just do everything as right as can be and spread the word on what is right and wrong and problems go down ALOT, instead of not telling them and letting the problem continue. As for aces, once we get our kiosk up, we will definitely have a place on there for Aces...
