I am pretty sure they do but not as frequently as everyone might like. The easier way to make the trash go away is to pack out everything you pack in. Clean up after yourself. Bill is the maintenance guy there, he's a pretty nice guy and works hard to keep the place up and does a good job other than the always full cans. Give him a ring sometime for requests.

Did they say they would at least empty the trash cans?

Looking at the five year plan for the park I noticed they have 'undeveloped' land elsewhere in their township. It isn't out of the question to get more disc golf in Oshtemo. Getting residents and non-residents active and positively influential in Oshtemo would be the best approach even if it doesn't mean we are getting more disc golf. There are current issues with the course already. Constant input at their meetings whether they want to hear it or not would be something we all could do to benefit the course.

Actually there was a trustee (I'm not sure if he still in office) who plays disc golf. Showing up to meetings does make a huge difference.

If there was some people there to back me up it would have made a difference. These elected officials need to be able to point to something to justify why they made the decision they made. They ... more

I don't think it's that people don't give a **** about disc golf. But in reality, how many people do you know that aren't into it, don't do it, and actually care about it? And, don't forget about how the park is funded. Pretty sure it is a township park, paid by the taxes of the township residents. How many of those are disc golfers? How many of those are the people using the course? My guess is a very very small percentage. Typically the people who fund things have the biggest impacts. The big ... more

It sounds like the trustees could give a **** about discgolf despite how many show up to the meeting. We need to actually get some disc golfers as trustees or they are going to keep wasting money on **** people will never use. It's going to be funny to see empty basketball and tennis courts with a parking lot full of people disc golfing.

Attending meetings (especially when this went down and I was asking people to show up) would have got a lot more done for the course. Maybe the 6 more holes I wanted?

We need to elect some township officials.

Austin I think you meant to post that round from the shorts, not the longs.
