Basket Stolen from Kit Carson Park
Some people are pretty low. Thoughtless. Selfish. And those are the people that steal your discs. Then there’s the real lowlifes – the basket thieves. And some of these scum stopped by Kit Carson Park last night and decided to steal basket #17.
It’s possible that it was stolen by some meth heads who will try to sell the metal as scrap – police report filed and local scrap dealers are being alerted. But it’s also possible that it was stolen by one of our local players who feels like it’s more important for him to have a practice basket in the back yard than for all of us to have a playable hole on our local disc golf course. That really sucks.
So if you happen to stop by someone’s house or apartment and they have a new practice basket with the #17 on it…or it has a big round number plate that they have painted over or covered in some way, please contact one of the Aces’ board members. Since we already have a police report filed we can call the police and they’ll pick up from there.
What happens next? Well, the basket has to be replaced. The San Diego Open is being held next week and they need to have 18 holes to play. So our Membership Director, Mark Verrochi (who happens to be sponsored by DGA) will be contacting DGA to see how quickly we can get a replacement sent out. Then Course Rep Tony Buck and his crew will install the replacement. It will cost the club a few hundred dollars to replace the basket. That’s your dues money – and money that could go to help pay for our next course installation (Mast Park in Santee). But instead it will be used to replace the basket that some jerk stole.
If you know who did it…kick then in the shin for me.
