That basket got knocked...it was loose in the ground and the trapper was bent on the top(the facemask that we all love).

They need to issue tickets to whoever was operating that machinery!! :evil:

I have nightmares where all I hear is DINK and see my disc roll down some hill, in to the street, hit by a car, which pops it back up to a roll, picks up speed and rolls in to a creek. All because of that beautiful faceplate. :lol:

The park was crushed by the storm last night. Many trees down and some on the pavillion along with power lines down. I will keep you posted on the status of the tourney, but it doesnt look good.

I went to take a look at the course today and....wow. Absolutely a damn shame. There are three or so holes that are virtually unplayable, & 2 or 3 others that are affected by all the downed trees & limbs & branches. Hopefully some of the locals will keep us informed here on this site as to when some course clean-up might happen, but I think it could be a while before everything is playable. :(

This is mostly correct that there is alot of trees down but the course is playable. I played it Sunday and I did not have many problems navigating thru the course. There were other players out there as well. The park cut the grass on 15,16,17 and 18. As far as the clean up goes, it looks like a long hard road.

Here is what it looks like: 1,2,3,4 and 5 are just fine. Number 6 is a mess, the whole fairway is covered with branches, but i just threw over it. Hole 7 is ok. Number 8 is ok. Number 9 has some trees down but should not effect your shot too much. 10 is ok. 11 is ok. 12 has trees down but you can make it by. 13 has trees covering fairway and some by the tee but you can do it. ( my dad lost my Evolution in the patch by the basket on 13) 14 has trees down by the tee. 15 is ok. 16 is ok. 17 is ok. And 18 is ok.

Dont fret, just play. Or make your own tee to throw from if the junk is in your way. Im sure i will be there tonight to disc up.

Thanks and have fun!!!!!

Don't fret, are you kidding? Hole 6 is dangerous, so be cautious and safe. WHEN that branch falls it will smash the basket and what ever is under it.

That is true. So when you play just skip 6 or dont let that limb fall on ya. Like Sharkbite said be careful.
