The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

People are signing the baskets, etc. like crazy here in Western Washington this summer and I just wanted to offer some advice to the course directors and aristocrat types who don't approve of this behavior/tradition. Put up an ace board. I have seen them at many courses in the parking lot/first tee areas. That way everyone can show the world their ace if they feel it to be necessary and less panties will be in knots over "vandalism" on the course.

Sign the disc. Move on.

Acetone the basket. Removes the marker! 

Magic Eraser with some decent graffiti remover (like Krud Kutter) should take it off. Keep removing it and try to inform people to sign discs. That's all you can do. Don't reward them by leaving the graffiti there.

Your advice reminds me of a scene in Full Metal Jacket. The Gunny claims that theft happens because people do not lock their lockers properly. The thinking is backwards. Similarly, clubs and parks should not have to pay to put up an ace board in order to prevent basket signings. People should have respect. Signing a basket is graffiti. 

People should never sign a basket. It is vandalism. If you wanna sign something, try signing the disc.

Should not cater to graffiti.

What if the others in the group signed their face with a sharpie?

(Laughter in the background).

Someone just aced at Water Works, a local course we've been putting tons of tlc into lately, and wrote their name on the tee marker, and twice on the basket on the pole and near the top..

Disc player sports 21 and Justin 11. You guys are taking different epistemological positions. Disc Player Sports takes the position that if the means justifies the end than the action must be most Pius. (if the overal sufferings of putting up an acewall are/is less than the sufferings of having vandalized baskets then put up an "ace wall") Justin 11 is a "value" based epidemiologist. Justin believes that the Value: "don't cater to vandalists" is more important for society to function than to the results of these actions. Ethics 101 brothers and sisters.  

i don't believe the signatures that are tagged on baskets were coincide with aces. People who write on baskets haven't been playing long and probably don't know what an ace is.

"Jesus H Christ. Private Pyle, why is your footlocker unlocked?"
"Sir, I don't know, sir."
"Private Pyle, if there is one thing in this world that I hate, it is an unlocked footlocker! You know that don't you?" 

Well put.

I wish chicks would sign their panties and tie em onto baskets at my home course!! If you catch em it would make a good web video!!

Writing on the Teesign , Bench , Teepad, Bathroom Wall, Toilet seat, Trash can or the Basket is considered Vandalism.

Only write on your own property , like your Disc.
