I think you have a misconception about what a man should do, if you believe that picking up branches - cutting down weeds - and hangin' out with discers is more important than your before mentioned priorities.
Maybe "MAN DOWN" would be the better quote, as I know you care more about those other things than this frickin' game we/you all play.
As for the rest of your dissapointments...well, I don't understand how you let it get to you anymore. You're dealing with disc golfers. Like it or not, its not your biggest population of 'go-getters' or 'workaholics', especially if those that are the go-getters or workaholics are generally the ones that have your before mentioned priorities in the proper order. Its not like this is your first rodeo, Paul. At some point, you just gotta either get over it...or past it.
And, as one from the very distant outside these days (purposefully)...I still see (or hear about) the work that you and others put in. So, if nothing else...I appreciate it. But, I would bet that at some point appreciation won't be enough reward for you. At THAT point, give me a call, man. We'll toss some plastic around for fun...and when the ninja branches knock us down or we end up in some high weeds...we won't care all that much. Cuz, in one form or another...its just bitter-sweet irony. You can clean the courses and 'fix' the problems all day, complaining about the lack of help involved or problems that arise. Or, you can complain about the condition of the courses or problems that arise...but enjoy playing and not doing any of it anymore.
