I can't say anything on dgs without starting a ruckus, ignore it..
it made for an interesting day, that is all. I have seen someone threatened with a gun at Hudson Mills, and been snarled at by "free range pit bulls" at Indy Lake.

"How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it." -Marcus Aurelius
Not trying to be good onto people solves nothing, If we are inherently nicer to those whom try to effect us with their unneeded anger it will confuse them and eventually they will give up.

Gabe that's all good and stuff but there is one flaw not everyone is going to get along with everyone. it's reality maybe if we were living in a perfect world the "pay it foward" movement might happen. But we don't so it is what it us i guess.

So what you're saying Gabe is can't we all just get along lol

This is more the issue of the "Jackass" generation finding humor in peoples pain. I do not think the local Police would react so fast being that it takes a fair amount of skill to peg someone with a golf ball as a distance. Car jacking is a tad more serious than being T Woods target. I think if we as a people and as a community of Disc Golfers tried to educate people on peace and togetherness we may be able to change to world 1 person at a time. Next time I see a seedy person at the course I ... more

Next time I see a seedy person at the course I for one will walk up to them, Extend my arms and offer them a hug. People like hugs.. And maybe the joy of the moment might change that person outlook on things and the "Pay it forward" movement might take off...

Great idea Mike! But no, one isolated incident on the LS property does not make it more "seedy" than CB. The concerns expressed are more a city problem than a LS problem. People are bound to run into douche bags anywhere they go...at CB, this happens on the regular.

Cool...We should all heed the warnings then and never play lake**** again. If I get into trouble the cops will never show and the grounds keeper wont help. Does that mean lake**** supersedes Cass Benton as the seediest course in south east Michigan.

wow glad i dont live down there anymore sounds like ypsi is going to ****. that area is totally the ghetto.
Felicia "The Flea" Sills August 15, 2012 at 10:45pm
Yeah because of the darn budget cuts or so they say. I think ypsi might be on the way of saying that to us soon kind of a scary thought to be honest here.
Ben Calhoun August 15, 2012 at 10:41pm
I hear in detroit now they just straight up tell you they're not gonna help, saves you the trouble at least
Felicia "The Flea" Sills August 15, 2012 at 10:39pm
Thats the police system for ya here in ypsi.
Ben Calhoun August 15, 2012 at 10:28pm
Next time random people are hitting golf balls into players and then threatening them, won't bother to ask for help. Called 911 when witnessed a group of maybe 10 people beating a man senseless at the Marathon, and they took about half hour to arrive. Remember that car crash where the driver at fault looked like she was gonna car jack the car she hit then fled the scene? It took them 16 minutes to arrive that day.
g lane August 15, 2012 at 10:25pm

Dan Whitlock August 15, 2012 at 9:49pm
