The Whitehall Township Disc Golf Course had 2 baskets ripped off recently. We are offering a $$ reward for any information about the theft. Please let us know if you have heard anything, the baskets are Innova Discatcher, and were taken in pieces without the center pole. Anyone with information will remain anonymous. Thanks---Whitehall Disc Golf

yeah, we bought a few extra cages. I will say this, those old baskets from 2003 were way nicer than the new stuff IMO. Chains were louder when you smashed em too.
Scott White September 16, 2011 at 4:03pm
I doubt you can buy the individual replacement parts from innova anyways, but I could be wrong. OK good luck..
Brian Mulnix September 16, 2011 at 3:57pm
@ Scott, we had welded the original baskets (that were vandalized in April 2010 and all replaced) and the insurance guy was busting our balls about it because it doesn't allow for individual parts to be replaced, so on the new ones we did not weld them (yet). We are going to weld them after this incident though. Screw the insurance guy.
Scott White September 16, 2011 at 3:39pm
Did they just unbolt it all, or actually break the weld? If there was no weld, there should be! This is the standard recommended practice for theft deterrent to weld the top chain assembly and the basket to the pole. Might want to check the remaining baskets at Whitehall so it doesn't happen again.

So the scumbags that ripped us off only took the cage and the top ring with the chains attached. They tried to loosen the whole unit and take it that way with no success, then they tried to chip the concrete away from the pole (on 4 different baskets) with no success....Without the pole, I expect that they will try to cobble some setup with either a pvc pipe or something similar. Be on the lookout for 2 cobbled up yellow rimmed baskets in a yard where 1-2 weak and/or scrawny little ****s live. ... more

Be on the lookout for 2 cobbled up yellow rimmed baskets in a yard where 1-2 weak and/or scrawny little ****s live. (its only 40lbs of concrete holding those in for crying out loud). And if by some remote chance the dirtbag is on DGS and see any of these posts, you will be much better off returning the equipment with no questions asked rather than being caught with them because at that point it will be out of my hands ;)

There will be a significant reward for information leading to the culprits. It happened sometime between Monday night and Wednesday am. If you saw anything suspicious, let me know. All information received will remain confidential. Thanks- Brian- Whitehall Disc Golf

Wandy Delong jumped up on 8's new pad and said "Screw Brian..This is MY pad!!! I'm the F***ing Treasurer now but next year another year now isn't it ****ezz..." He did have steel toed boots on too...
Angry "double bogey" Andy September 13, 2011 at 3:32pm

Deep 9 looks SWEET. All pads are done, and we will break them in this evening with a random draw "No more dancing on the dirt" doubles round. I can't give enough thanks to those who sacrificed their time on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and especially Saturday. Without your dedication, none of this could be possible. We got everything done without a single issue, cement rolled in at 8:00 sharp, and we were done pouring by 11:30 (aside from Jimmy the cement truck driver ge ... more

We got everything done without a single issue, cement rolled in at 8:00 sharp, and we were done pouring by 11:30 (aside from Jimmy the cement truck driver getting to his canoe trip late, sorry Jimmy). Everything was pretty much wrapped up by 2:30. Ike busted chops and kept the lot "secure", Jeff, Jen and BillE pulled course security Saturday night.
Besides the tee pads, we also did a bunch of other maintenance:
Andy Delong and Jim Scane worked on cutting a ton of stuff from Deep 1, 2, 7, and 9.
Spear squared did some trimming throughout the original.
Between Evans, Hyatt, and Jim Scane, a ton of stumps were removed.
Greg Barrett completed his project on original 16 teepad, looks great.
8 berm tee pad looks sweet, but someone with some big ass steel tow boots on threw from it yesterday and gouged out a big spot where they dragged their tow.
Aside from that, here is the roster of volunteers that helped, give them a thanks when you see them:
John and Lori (dont know last name)
Dean Evans (equipment)
Pat Breen (for not writing bad words in the wet cement)
City of Whitehall
Let me know if I missed anyone...
Just kidding about the gouge on 8 ANDY
See you tonight,

@ Peter...do you mean the Deep 9? walk right past the #10 tee pad, to the right there is a path with a sign.
peter kunoff September 4, 2011 at 9:54am
where are those alternates?......course flow was so easy but failed to see any alts

The Whitehall Disc Golf Club will be hosting random draw doubles on Monday nights until October. This will be a "filler" until we start out normal winter league on Sundays. Cost will be $3.00 and we'll do some ctp/lp depending on player numbers. We will start at the normal time. See you there. Bring your Ace Race Money if you can on Monday. Thanks
Brian Mulnix September 1, 2011 at 4:08pm
Kind of late notice, but there will be a few people at the course working on the #8 Tee pad tonight, feel free to stop by and lend a hand. Thanks
