Two Baskets Stolen From Crivaro!!!

Postby Latch » Thu Jan 25, 2007 3:42 pm

I was just informed that two baskets have been stolen from this brand new course. Please keep an eye out for these missing blue Mach V's. Any information as to their whereabouts would be greatly appreciated!

This is obviously very disappointing for many reasons, but taking a chance at jeopardizing out wonderful Park and Rec's support is tops on the list. You see, this is the first disc golf course in Des Moines that was funded entirely by the DMPR. I would hate for disc golf thieves to make them to think twice about future investments in disc golf.

If the person who "borrowed" the baskets is reading this, then please return the equipment soon :!:
Happy Discing!

not to toot my own horn but I called that 3 months ago.

Check the river, I'd be willing to bet vandalization, rather than theft, was the motivation.

What does this mean? Why are these baskets more vulnerable than any others? I think this is just another random theft, as has happened at many other courses. I think we need to be careful implying that Crivaro will have more basket theft or vandalism because of location.

9 baskets being in sight from SE 14th st....probably the most visible course there is....that's what he means.

I just drove by there last night, and didn't notice the missing baskets, becuase I was noticing that the tracks (probably a truck) in the snow--somebody had quite the joyride through the park, nearly missing a couple of the baskets you can see from 14th (when it's dark).

What I want to know is, how were they stolen? Like Ewing where they simply unbolted the sleeve?

I think the Club should get this issue taken care of regardless of how this job was done. Unless we want to keep replacing baskets. Baskets can be tough to steal, but they don't come from the factory that way.

You have a point. I was thinking it would be safer to have them out in the open like that. If I was going to steal them, I would go somewhere more remote.

Sorry 10up, my liberal PC gland kicked in a little too quickly.

Thieves typically are NOT intelligent. :shock:

Also, I was banking more on it being vandalization rather than theft because of the visibility. Idiots don't usually go search out things to destroy, it's always the stuff that they come across randomly.

Hmmm. If anyone notices Dan's putting improving, maybe we should search his basement.

Thanks for the discussion, guys. This is a serious issue for DG in Des Moines. We'll make sure we discuss it at a future meeting and come up with a plan to address the cabbaging (it's the right word - it means stealing; look it up) of baskets.
There are no stupid questions. Just stupid people.

Is there any way we can 'tag' our baskets with a serial number or some permanent marking?
Is there anything we can do that would better protect our baskets in general?
