40+ trees since prior to 2000? That's it? That's gotta be some kind of record. It's a forest, and I think that you're seriously underestimating. I bet you lost 40,000 limbs and branches out there just during the ice storm earlier this year. Courses evolve, along with disc technology. And what Frog said is true, I can't think of any helmets on here aside from Marty67 that post on this disc golf forum and don't understand the "leave 'em be" philosophy. You're barking up the wrong tree, pun intended.
As far as Halloween Havoc, I was there back in 2000. My partner and I won the grand door prize which I still possess---two sweet home-made mini baskets. If this tourney ever comes back, I'll bring 'em for ole times sake. Maybe you, Hyser, can help make this happen. Things don't usually come to fruition when you post on a forum that maybe somebody else will.
