Highland Baskets
« on: September 28, 2012, 08:33:11 PM »
I was talking to Shawn Harmon the other day & he mentioned he bought a basket for his hole. You know what's sad is the course doesn't equal to the baskets. What's also sad is the money spent to galvanize the baskets. Who knew it would be a class course? It got me thinking about the holes that have sponsor names on them. I wonder if we will buy baskets for our holes. There is a basket fund, & we need baskets. Perhaps the fund will go 50/50 for the baskets. I think everyone will agree we need to do something. Many choose the course to play is Highland & Lockport, because of the challenge. Lockport has good baskets & we need to do that at Highland. Maybe we can talk at the picnic.

I love the old baskets, you got to KNOW how to putt on them.

My advantage verses others is knowing where to hit those chains.

Sorry! Your a nut! We need to replace the baskets. Your right, but if most think like you, so be it. Most think we should replace the baskets. It's a challenging course, don't you think the baskets should relate that challenge?

just find  17  people who buy the new basket and give them the old basket
the old baskets are antiques , I agree.
I like the challange of the older baskets, most dont feel that way.

I love the cement tees there.

( added , yes I am nuts )

I know this is a little late, but that's funny. Yep,  just find 17 people. I've got all I can do at Channahon, but I'm just throwing it out there.

I personally think the West Park Chainstars should be moved over to Highland. West Park is a shorter course anyways and easier by today's standards. The old Mach 1's are in good shape but make putting more of a challenge.

We really need to do something. I'll see what Gary has in the basket fund. Perhaps a fundraiser tournament, or two.

Frank I have been saying this for a year now... I know Jesse and Mickey mouse have been giving money to Gary for the basket fund for four or five years now I am guessing.. you would hope that the basket fund has close to 3k in it and would need to raise another 7k...  it is a challenge but if people like Harmon want to buy a basket for that sponsored hole they need to buy the baskets in sync and not have four different types of baskets...  or just learn to putt like Frank and you dont' have to worry about the baskets

Thanks Thor, you're right, all the baskets need to be the same. My thought was to get the money & see what Gary will do.

If you want to put in Discraft Chainstars, I already have two I'd be willing to donate. It's poor season at the shop, so I can't donate cash at the present. But if someone were to hit me up during the season next year, I'd be happy to pony up something in addition to the two baskets.
I was happy to donate money for the teepad on 15 last time, and it would be great to put a new basket there as well.

thanks for all the effort aces and chains, it cant be easy with retail disc golfers in this economy ,

" If you want to put in Discraft Chainstars,  "

if they did Not want them to put in,  you could auction them or raffle them off and take the funds and  add to the existing basket fund

That's right, 15's basket was replaced after the bulldozer ran it over. I forgot about that.

I really have to get out more.
