The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I am wondering why people leave their litter all over disc golf courses? I installed a new course at Black Butte Lake (a Federal Park outside Orland CA) last Friday (12/18/09). Yesterday when I went out to meet some Rangers to discuss how things are going so far, I picked up a 6 PACK of Natty Ice, 1 Coors can, a 2 liter soda bottle and an empty bottle of JAGER! All on the first 9 holes! What's up with that? How is it that disc golfers have so little respect for themselves, our courses and other park users? You would think it would be otherwise, but again and again it is proven not to be the case...

Any thoughts?

Hahaha the choice of beer is almost as offensive as littering, I gotta agree.
because they are idiots that don't give sh*t

Would they trash their own property?
Put some signs up that they are being watched.
I was talking to one of the guys who cleans up parks for the city in this area and I cant repeat here some of the stuff he see's/finds in our public parks. pretty sure it's not all disc golfers . but yeah, it amazes me also.

what really kills me is when I see trash 10 feet from a trash can. ??!?!?!?!
Some people just aren't happy unless they're f#@*#k@*g something up for the rest of us. They impress their friends by tossing their garbage all over then laugh about it. Don't try to understand it, concentrate on busting them.
We have several courses in the Milwaukee area, there are certain courses where people just think that someone will pick up my garbage, and those people are usually the "One Disc Chuckers", they really don't play for the sport, more just to get out and drink and what ever (they are also the tree destroyers, if a branch or bush is in the way, they will break the branch, thinking there are doing everyone a favor). My home course we bring garbage bags and pick up as we play, and disc golfers notice that and do not litter as much. So, if see someone littering, talk to them, if you see litter pick it up. And state the Motto "Leave the course a little bit cleaner"!
"keep hittin the chains"

These are people that never learned respect for others property, and usualy not thier own either.
Aren't idiots a bummer?
We are all idiots to think that sticking it (trash) in the can is the solution.
Stop the "PLASTIC from Bottles!"
Use a stainless steel bottle, reuse.
TED has some awesome videos. hadn't seen that one. thanks :)
