This happened to at least 4 baskets at Pier Park in Portland last night. No one was caught, but IMHO this just has the smell of someone that got pissed and over-reacted after watching groups of chuckers ignoring social distancing protocol. The timing is just too suspect to be something else, that course has been there for years.

Police are on alert for a suspect with a really impressive set of bolt cutters.

Yeah that sucks. Surprised the basket were not pulled already.

That is messed up. Hope these pics don't give anyone ideas.
Find the culprit and use the bolt cutters on his fingers.

A choir practice held in Washington state on March 10, as the new coronavirus was spreading in Seattle, left dozens of people with COVID-19. The Los Angeles Times reports that 45 out of 60 Skagit Valley Chorale who gathered at the Mount Vernon Presbyterian Church have tested positive. Three have been hospitalized and two have died. No one at the practice had symptoms and most avoided contact with others, but the act of singing could have dispersed virus-containing droplets into the air they breathed. Its just normal, random people doing things that they love to do, and all of a sudden some people are dead, chorister Carolynn Comstock told the Times. Its very sobering.

Sucks.

As does the WHOs continued insistence that its not airborne and masks arent necessary for the general public.

... And I just heard on ABC world news tonight with David Muir, a pastor for a church in the New Orleans area was arrested for trying to get everybody to come to church.

I don't know who's dumber: the pastor or the congregants? It ain't rocket surgery: bringing hundreds of people together in one spot is stupid roll of the dice.

By all means, worship/pray if you want to. Just do it from home. It doesn't need to be a social event.

KKKri$tianity isn't a religion, it's a business. Gotta pass that plate $$$.:\

I do understand the point you are making but the more information we get, the more I'd say try to avoid this virus for your personal health as well. I wouldn't discount the possibility of long-term damage. We have also seen young, healthy people go through really horrific experiences with this virus.

Been thinking about setting up temp courses during the current climate of social distancing, and while baskets are cool, object golf may be a better fit. A wood post would seem to eliminate most of the fear of targets that players might have - as they say the virus lives on plastic or metal up to 72 hours. Plus, without the "basket" and chains, discs will simply hit and drop to the ground, no place to pool germs.
Could be a great way to create new players, create potential new customers, and create some excellent PR for the sport.
"The Return of Object Golf"
we can shift to object golf for the time being and hopefully that would transition to invigorated target golf when the crisis ends.
