I played out there a couple months ago and was wondering where the basket went. Then I read the story about it in the MFA meeting minutes. Pretty sweet deal that they found it. Sucks that some idiot would do it though.
They steal them for the money that someone esle will pay them for a basket of their own. We had a guy here, his nickname was, is, (tatoo). He travels around like he is on the run, driving a light brown chevy four door car. Handicap license plate, South Carolina tag. He goes into the water holes at different courses and takes the discs to sell to anyone who will buy them. We knew about the discs being taken and sold, but last week a guy was here from Athens, Ga., he told one our local players that Tatoo offered baskets for $100.00 each. Tatoo has disapeared from our course but he is out there somewhere doing his thing. Trying to make money off disc golfers.
They do it because we enable them by buying stolen properties. Not just in little things, a government can be and is also a thief by taxing people out of their homes and then selling them to others. WE enable this. If on the other hand the thief had to keep all that stuff he stole, he would soon become so encumbered he could never take another thing!! We are having problems with people stealing the copper roofs off of churches! People stealing heat pumps for the metal value in it. People stealing exhaust systems off of cars! People even stealing the switching cables on commuter trains. These people care nothing for human life, any other person, or the local environment which they are daily destroying. The have only been and continue to be just a drain on society. In answer to the question, there IS no good reason to steal a basket.
I'm going to rant and try to do so without the use of profanity.
Once a thief always a thief. I hope we find out who stole two baskets from Weatherford DGC on Sat, June 20th. We have a description of two vehicles, a Ford Ranger and a Dodge Ram. I think the Ram was a friend and local golfer. We filed a police report but doubt that'll do any good, too busy catching crackheads.
If you can't afford a practice basket of your own, perhaps you should take up checkers. I mean, a Skillshot is around a hundred bucks. I see baskets on Craiglist for around a couple hundred. I know they can be easy to steal if you know what you're doing, and a thief would.
We have to buy replacements now, because rather than paying for one, you just decide to steal one from a local course. Get a job you lowlifes, or go a week or two without your crack and you could buy a basket of your own.
I am so thankful my dad put a boot in my ass whenever I needed it growing up because I sure don't even contemplate stealing a basket much less anything else. Thanks Dad, Happy Father's Day.
What else do you steal? You know the old saying "whatever's not bolted down" well erase that one, Hell you dirtbags steal that to, bolted, welded, locked and still you have to steal baskets.
Does your wife or girlfriend know you're a thief? Wait I know the answer already, no because almost all thieves are liars too, and people like you don't have sustainable relationships. Unless you count hanging out with less-than-desirable-thievin-buddies stealing baskets.
I hope someone finds out who you are and everyone knows you for what you really are, Thieving scum.
Do you feel gratitude for the rest of us who will raise the money to replace what you stole so you can come back out and play a round of golf? Does it bother you when the course is only sixteen or seventeen holes or do you get a sick pleasure knowing you are the guilty party?
Get a life A$$ole.
I did not hear the story that the basket had been stolen in the home course.
However, a metallic cover in Paul and a street gutter metallic to pull up a car was stolen in the city.
There were bad people who sold it in foreign countries because the metallic price had risen.
