Rob that would be awesome if you would repaint the tables and anywhere else that could use it. Obviously black would be best.
Scott, I'm glad to hear that you had a change of heart about the reward. I will let him know to get in touch with you.
It would be stupid of Joey Sans to do it again since everyone knows who he is. Obviously time will tell. He doesn't seem to be the brightest. He is 28 and likes to write "poop" on tables.

Steve I too am skeptical and will give half also can you let the guy know to get a hold of me.
Rob Slater May 24, 2011 at 12:07pm
Perhaps a fresh coat of paint over the tables would inexpensively determine if "Poop" is a man of his word or not. I am willing to paint the tables at Oshtemo (complete with wet paint signs) If others are willing to do the same elsewhere in the area. I offer this as a way to give back to those who worked to confront this individual, as well as the park I enjoy so regularly. Thanks again to Larry, Randy, and their facebook source for all the info. Let me know the consensus on the paint situation.

I ponied up half of my reward $$ to the guy. but still have doubts that it will stop. I guess I shoulda stated information that leads to conviction.

The ticks are back at oshtemo, my girlfriend had the first tick i have ever seen at oshtemo today.
Randy Gallagher May 21, 2011 at 7:37pm
send me the info I will see if the 5-0 is interested.
Randy Gallagher May 21, 2011 at 7:20pm
If you have an email saying that he will stop wouldn't that be admitting to it? If there is incriminating evidence such as his admission of the crime wouldn't that suffice? Text is a ****

By the way, for those that were offering a reward, I think the time to pay up is at hand. I am willing to get it to the guy who gave me the info that led directly to "poop". I should also point out that Randy's info was somewhat correct. That was his ride, but it isn't his car.

I appreciate the work you did contacting him Larry, I'm sure people are just upset the park took the unnecessary hit and you have stopped this problem from progressing.
Danger Dave, Oshtemo is very well set up and you won't have any problem navigating, thick trees on both sides of beautiful fairways. Nice two rounder as shorts are fun too.

You have his name. Do what you want. I just want it to end. Getting into a pissing match won't stop it. The police will need to catch him in the act to prosecute or a witnesses to come forward (if the police are interested). I'll pass on all info I have if needed. I've done that with some of the parks. I'm not trying to take charge in this. I didn't post reward signs or offer a reward. It was brought to my attention who it was and I passed that on to as many people as I could. I contac ... more

Hey guys I'm from the Ann Arbor area and will be over here next Thursday on the 26th with a friend. Was hoping that someone that knows the courses might be free and show us around. Please shoot me a message. Thanks
Randy Gallagher May 19, 2011 at 12:22pm
I hope the cops are that nice if I ever commit a felony. "It's not a big deal kid, so what, you burned down a building, here's a lollipop."
Kyle Jansen van Galen May 19, 2011 at 11:12am
At least some community service making new benches and cleaning up the parks
Randy Gallagher May 19, 2011 at 9:02am
I just think that it's ridiculous to take the hard work and effort that many put into the courses, and I know you did a lot too Larry, go down the drain. Pussification of America. I guess I don't need to drop you a disc for the reward anymore, no one will get it.
Scott Wilson May 19, 2011 at 8:53am
So we just let the guy go who has vandalized courses in 3 counties, with no consequences? You know it is against the law, just ask those kids from Western!
Randy Gallagher May 19, 2011 at 7:36am
Hopefully he's telling the truth unfortunately the only way well be able to tell is if we don't see new paint and ink. If he admitted to it save the email and let's prosecute him.
Larry LaBond May 18, 2011 at 7:26pm
I have had contact with "poop" and he has agreed to not do it anymore. So hopefully this is a problem resolved!
