There are a couple of young guys that come out early mornings fishing discs out of the pond. Didn't sound like they are trying to get them back to their owners.

It is a very special disc as it has special memories of discing with my 3 year old this past april. Reward if returned.

I don't run the league there or partake in either of the league days there. Tho I understand where you're coming from Larry.

Honestly something needs to be done. Saying "Fuck 'em" won't work. Close the Airzoo, then the same people will go elsewhere and keep up their shitty behavior. If you care anything about the sport and not just the Airzoo course, then please step up when you see someone acting like an asshole. This is the exact reason that we didn't get anymore holes at Oshtemo when they did all the work out there. It is the same reason there are no other courses in Portage. It is the same reason there are ... more
Honestly something needs to be done. Saying "**** 'em" won't work. Close the Airzoo, then the same people will go elsewhere and keep up their ****ty behavior. If you care anything about the sport and not just the Airzoo course, then please step up when you see someone acting like an ****. This is the exact reason that we didn't get anymore holes at Oshtemo when they did all the work out there. It is the same reason there are no other courses in Portage. It is the same reason there are no other courses in other county parks. It is a good part of why there is no WMU course. It is the problem I run into when trying to get more courses in. Closing the Airzoo course will surely lead to the questions of why it closed when I look for a new place to put the baskets. I will have to tell them that people come out there break rules, liter, and can't behave. Want that in your park?? I have enough meetings with park officials over the years and this is always their concern. It always gets brought up. This is part of the bad reputation of our sport. We need to change this!
Brian- I'm really disappointed that this is your attitude, especially for someone who runs a league at the Airzoo. I had a meeting with the Airzoo last week to discuss a few things. I'm planning on using the Airzoo course for the 2015 Am Worlds and discussed with the Airzoo the course's future. Right now it truly is up in the air (no pun intended). They are not expecting a complete turn around in 30 days, but for things to improve. They did tell me that the two worst days for garbage out there are after the two league nights. Why can't the organized players out there can't clean up after themselves?? The Director of the Airzoo told me a story of watching some girl (on a Fight Club League night) speed into the parking lot and then get out and start yelling obscenities and giving the finger to people as they pulled into the lot for league. Does this sound like a good thing to do in a place that is supposed to be family friendly? Why is this such a hard thing to try and change? As someone who is running a league out there, you should be helping fix this, not saying "**** 'em", otherwise the course is as good as gone and maybe I should just go and get the baskets now. BTW where is this place where we can go and put in a "real disc golf course?" It isn't easy to find a place that is willing to put a course in and loosing a course like this won't make that any easier! For that matter, why should I put those baskets anywhere else if the attitude of the people using them is "**** 'em," they will just put them somewhere else for us to use. I spent a lot of time, energy, and money into getting the Airzoo course installed. Maybe "**** 'em" should be what I start doing as well. I bet I could make a few dollars selling those basket off! It would be a lot easier than building another course for people to disrespect!
If you see someone out there breaking rules, please confront them!! Do it calmly. Don't yell at them. Explain to them that it is hurting the sport!! I've done this a lot over the years. I have never had anyone get ****ty with me when I explain to them what they are doing is hurting what they enjoy! At a minimum, everyone that reads this should make sure that they are not part of this problem. Don't drink or smoke! Don't liter! Don't speed in the parking lot! Don't yell obscenities! It really isn't that hard to do and I don't understand any reluctance to change this!! There are plans to make improvements to the Airzoo course, including cement tees! This won't happen and we will loose the course if we can't change how people are acting!
Brian DeVries July 9 at 7:44am
If people can't use a trash can or put their waste in their bags for the round **** 'em. Close the course, it wouldn't hurt my feelings. Sure it would suck to lose a course, but really what will we be missing? The people who are leaving trash are just casual players, they don't care about the threat of losing the course. If they wanna pull the course, pull the damn thing, maybe we can build a real disc golf course with the baskets.

For anyone that might not have been to Air Zoo recently, I thought I would post the message written by Air Zoo staff on its bulletin board over the weekend for everyone to view:
Dear Disc Golfers:
I am writing to request that each of you help, in any way you can, to ensure that the Air Zoo's disc golf course can continue to thrive as a clean, safe, and friendly place for people of ALL ages to enjoy throughout the year. We regret that, despite our own best efforts, behaviors of the few individuals who are not following the posted rules are beginning to overshadow the many who respect the course, its players, and other Air Zoo guests. We need your help to reverse this trend, or it may ultimately lead to the closing of this course either temporarily or permanently.
Over the last month the Air Zoo's staff and volunteers have reported numerous cases of excessive litter on the course; consumption of alcoholic beverages on the Air Zoo's property; broken glass throughout the area of the parking lot designated for disc golf players; language and physical gestures clearly inappropriate for a family setting; lack of appropriate attire; unleashed pets; and other behavior that goes against not only the posted rules but also against a common-sense understanding of respectful behavior.
The Air Zoo must do and will do everything we can to ensure that people and families of all ages have an experience that in every way lives up to their expectations in a fun and safe family environment. To that end we ask that each of you make every attempt to uphold, not tear down, this environment in any way you can. Again, recognizing that a large majority of you already do this, we ask you to help "clean up" those who do not. If we cannot turn these things around for good over the next 30 days, we will re-assess the situation and give serious consideration to closing the disc golf course. The Air Zoo does not want to do that, nor would you like to see that happen, so please help us now.
The Air Zoo Management Team
