Dan, I think more people will be trying to throw harder to reach the basket and will be shanking more shots that ever if the tree is removed. The tree looks bad with all the cuts from discs and will eventually die anyway unless we try to protect it(wrap drain tile around it)if we vote to keep it.
Don't think that I am doing this for my benifit because I can't reach the hole either way. I just don't think that tree(maybe we should give it a name) belongs in the middle of the fairway.

Hey Paul, would you do a poll here if you don't mind. Don't skew the poll people by voting more than once though please. Leave Tree, or Remove Tree?

You can poll all you want but it's the vote at the meeting that counts.
Show up or shut up.

I just played a round at Mt Airy and the basket on hole 7 is almost fully out of the ground. It came up just like hole 9 did. I didn't have my truck so I didn't take it with me. Anyone reading this and going to Dumont's tonight might want to take the initiative and pull it out so it can be reset. I would be willing to carry it out but I might will need someone who can haul it away.


Maybe big boy or stick boy can help

I came on here to post the same thing about hole #7. I noticed it was almost out of the ground when I was playing there on Sunday.

Yippee!!! Hole #6's basket is back in. How long has it been there? THANKS to whoever got it done.

Let's try to hold on to the other ones that are loose.

What about the remains from temp. #6? Should we maybe save it for some future disc golf museum? It certainly held up okay, considering the conditions. Dragon should patent that bamboo/windchime design.

YES, 6's basket is back and playing nicely. I have chained hole 7 to a tree until Fred and I can hook up there tommorow.

Thanks Phil for taking the initiative. Also, hole 3 is loose. If you are going to be at Mt. Airy after 4, I can give some assistants. Such as, bringing a wheelbarrow, shovel, pickax, posthole digger, 5 gallons of water, one 80lb. bag of cement, 2 hammers for stripping bolts, and just about anything else you might need. Of course this message is void if I see you at leagues this evening.

That's good to hear hole #6 is back in the ground. In addition, a friend of mine played Burnet Woods this afternoon, and he said the first round he played, the basket on hole #2 was gone. However, the 2nd round he played, park maintenance was installing a brand new basket. Looks like the Cincinnati Parks ordered several new baskets. A thank you toward them would certainly be nice to let them know we appreciate them replacing the broken/stolen baskets.

Getting #6 replaced was a beaurocratic nightmare. I've had at least 10 email discussions, several phone conversations, and 2 meetings with parks personnel in the park to get this done. Finally, yesterday, the Park manager called me and told me it was finally getting done! Number 4 is supposed to have the basket assembly re-welded to the pole today. Same with #2 at Burnet Woods. I convinced the Parks to buy an extra basket so that next time some scumbag steals a basket, we won't have to wait over a year for a replacement.

Please call the Cincinnati Parks - or use the email addresses on our home page Parks Contact Info - to thank the Cincy Parks for finally doing this. Might not be a bad idea to ask them to do some preventative work and resecure all the other baskets, now that there is no emergency - or before there is another emergency.

They did fix hole 4 but they re-welded it 6in above the old weld so there is a 6in window to putt into now. It's kind of scary. We may have to put up a temp basket for the pig.

It's a putt stealer! The inner chains now rest on the basket, which cause them to not respond properly, resulting in spit-outs. Now I know how Blakely feels.

Great! 2 steps forward, one step back. Guess I'll modify my home basket to be similar, so I won't be suprised by it!

Hole 7 is now fixed and in the ground. My drill died before I could get to hole 3. I have a pin and lock for hole 3's new sleeve. But I need to drill the pole so we can pin it. Does anyone have a burly drill (preferrably 18v or more) with at least a 1/4 in chuck so we can drill the pole? I have a 14.4 that I borrowed but even with two full batteries I was only barely able to get one drilled. If you have a drill let me know...maybe Dragon or one of you guys that lives close.
And thanks to the Mexican for helping me get the holes dug for the new sleeves.

Anyone see the Enquirer article about city funding? The other day they they mentioned serious cutbacks in a lot of city parks. They plan to cut back (yuck yuck) on their mowing, close all park restrooms, and lay off seasonal workers. Might be looking at some high grass at Mt Airy and Burnet soon!

there's a leash law for all of Hamilton County, I believe.  So, yes.

Just a FYI, I live just 5 minutes from Airy and very willing to help out with any upkeep needed. I am a carpenter by trade and have a few tools that may help. Usually free on weekends and some evenings. drop me a message anytime at amj1075@yahoo.com .

AdamJ,

What is badly needed at Mt. Airy is someone to repair the message board next to hole #1. I think what is there is salvagable. The right door is broken off, and the left door is near-death. The Club will reimburse you for materials- just let me know what you have planned and it's expense.

Liz Ransdell has a new board for Burnet Woods that needs to be installed (I believe it needs 2 4x4's to be set in the ground, that it can be mounted to). Looking for a volunteer to dig 2 post holes and install the board! Anyone out there with a few hours to lend to the project?

One way to think about it ... a couple hours on one of these projects will have a lasting impact .... and last a lot longer than cutting weeds that grow back in a few weeks!
