One posted sign or being informed prior to entering the fenced area constitutes entering private property. All rules can be enforced and the violating parties may be asked to leave or vacate the afore mentioned posted property on the violation of trespassing! This can be enforced by property management, security and/or law enforcement as constituted by Michigan and federal legislation!

I don't think yelling at people is the way to get everyone on the same side. I think most of us just want to get our discs back, and your condescending tone is only going to make people resent you and/or refuse to participate in the lost & found (to which I am not objecting). Threatening them is definitely going to invoke a negative reaction. I am bringing back found discs (I only have them still because the shop was closed) and hoping my Buzzz shows up (#38985 inked on inside of the lip). ... more

So your saying if you put one of your own discs in your not allowed to go in for your own disc? **** that.

Look, I'm not going to sit here and argue about this any longer. As I've already mentioned, I am returning a few discs when I come to Night Moose doubles tomorrow (assuming I can still make it; my girlfriend has been on the phone all morning regarding a death in the family), so I'm obviously trying to follow course conventions. I just don't understand your accusations of "unruliness" for breaking rules that are counter-intuitive and not posted. I would've been very upset and confused if I was ... more

If post signs, you should note that you run a lost-and-found for unmarked discs. Personally, I never would have assumed that an unmarked disc would actually make it back to his owner.

Not trying to stoke the fire, but I don't recall I have ever seen a sign saying you cannot enter the water, or any other section of the course. I can vouch for Wade, he does a great job of returning discs (speaking from my own personal experience as well). I am in no form a lawyer, but I think tress passing laws in Michigan state you have to have signs marked clearly and something like a sign posted every 100 ft. I could be wrong though, but I'm pretty sure. Maybe a disc golfing lawyer could chime in :P

I'm trying to be constructive here and you're just angry. I have always gone after my disc if it fell in the pond, and Sunday was the first time I'd ever heard about it being supposedly forbidden. It seems counter-intuitive to me that this would not be allowed.

I said "publicly accessible park", not "publicly owned park". Anyone with a valid ID is allowed to enter and play. Also, if you throw your disc into the water and wade in after it, how did it suddenly become the property of another? And where is it stated that you are not allowed to go after it?

Entering Lakeshore you accept that you are now in a gated community on PRIVATE PROPERTY. NOT a public park. How many public parks do you have to stop by a security gate to confirm your business at the place? Anytime you find something anywhere, no matter how long it has been there, doesn't make it yours. There is no sunken treasure laws applicable here. It's on Lakeshore property, making it Lakeshore property after it has been lost here. I do make the attempt to return any lost/found disc here. ... more

I am also very confused regarding the anger and use of the words "stealing" and "consequences". There are no signs/fences/ropes denoting that area as off-limits, and to my understanding the property isn't owned by anyone running the Throw Shop (as can be Googled quickly or simply inferred from the spiteful "protest the carnival" comment below). Playing a casual round of disc golf, it is quite common to see someone go in shallow water after their disc and maybe even come out with a couple extra ... more

I lost an orange Z Buzzz with a Mayhem stamp in the pond on Sunday. I also have a few discs to return to the shop (received permission to go in the pond Sunday to look for the Buzzz, and the shop was closed when I returned so I couldn't drop them off). I should be around on Sunday for Night Moose doubles.

PLEASE RETURN THE DISCS YOU FIND IN THE POND!!!!! IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS GETTING IN THE POND AND NOT RETURNING DISCS PLEASE REPORT THEM!!! I AM OFFERING A REWARD FOR ANY DISCS RETURNED TO THE SHOP FROM THE POND AT ANY GIVEN TIME. IF GOLFERS KEEP GOING IN THE POND AND STEALING DISCS, THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES. I'M SICK OF IT.

1. The course is re-installed, remember to thank Delia and Steven Blink for the help everyone 2. The only permanent/physical damage I have found is #7's white tee is destroyed (*they broke it earlier and I took pictures, then tonight we found it was 3 times more damaged, like they did it intentionally later today so please everyone hurt the next carnie you see I am declaring war), they cut branches on #6, #7, #9 (but not as bad as last year), damage to the turf with some holes/ruts/lots of dead ... more

Ben 10 The Defender. Nice. Good work!

Update: The course and shop are both 'Open' officially. The course isn't really playable today due to the Carnies still packing up and about 10 baskets need to be put back in the ground. Damages: #7's white tee is broken again. Lost some limbs on #9. Large tree fell (storm damage) out of the woods on X but isn't in the way of anything for now. Lots of dead grass. Trash situation isn't nearly as bad as last year. I expect them to be gone by the end of the day today and the course fully re-inst ... more

Course is CLOSED TO PLAY. However the disc golf mega-store is still open. 10% all new merch in protest of the carnival!

I heard the Balloon Fest was extra awesome this year so most of the carnies weren't leaving Howell until later this afternoon. As I figure it, they won't be to Lakeshore until about 3:30 this afternoon. Good luck.
