No clue who did it.

They did a less than good job doing it, but no point in getting upset about it. I think whoever did it had good intentions, and was trying to improve the course.

This coming from Dustin "O you are going to take a picture of the course work, let me stand up so it looks like I'm doing something" Nohr! :lol:

My family and I painted the numbers on the baskets along with picking up some trash around the course. I agree that it didn't turn out that well. We were kind of in a hurry as it was a bit busy and getting dark.

I just started playing disc golf last fall and one of the most frustrating things for new players is not being able to figure out the course. I think having the plates painted, as bad as they are, at least helps people find the baskets and figure which one goes with which hole.

I'd be happy to redo them all, and do a much better job. What do you all think about number stickers instead of paint? I could easily do it this weekend.

I see now that a possible course redesign is in the works so that's exciting. Anyway, if there is anything else I can help out with on any of the courses, please let me know.

Get in contact with Stiers, he had stickers mad for Legion, and they came out really good.

I was thinking about just picking up some stickers from the hardware store. They have ones that are white with black numbers that people put on their mailboxes and such. I could repaint all of the plates white and then put the stickers on.

I might talk to Stiers about having some made though. That would be nicer. Anyone else have any thoughts?
