I think the term you are looking for is "sawzall" and it is not a southern term. I first head a reciprocating saw call a sawzall when I lived in Ohio in the 70's.

Indeed. I agree. I only tried to spell phonetically in relation to how people say it here. But yes! I will agree for sure. I actually used to live in cincinatti and they also use that term.

If people are going to vandalize property, the least they can do is properly pronounce slang terms to reference their tools while doing so.

The Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. makes the Sawzall. It's trademarked.
Hitachi, Ryobi, and other "reciprocating saws" came later.

There is a special place in Hell for people who do things like this. It's right next to the child molesters and people who talk during movies.

Somewhat expensive, but 18 trail cams would definitely help with catching someone doing this in the future. My home course used to only have those as the security cameras; now's there's a nest of four of them by the parking lot, but there are still trail cams throughout the course (there was an issue with spray painted graffiti on several baskets, tee signs, trees, and the rocks on an island hole).

But not sure its possible to avoid this going forward. we can speculate all we want about who did it but with no solid proof its a waste of time and energy. would rather spend our energy making this course great. Washington park is 30 years old this year and is in the best condition i have ever seen it since i started playing.

the only evidence we have at this point is they used a blue blade. We also call them sawzaws in the midwest. Police report was filed and they have their best detectives on the case : )

side note the amount of support from surrounding clubs and the disc golf community in general thru donations and advice was pretty awesome to witness and be a part of.
We have had this discussion locally when a basket gets stolen. I think the concrete/rebar solution could work but would be a pain to move the baskets around if the course has multiple locations. Trail cams could be a good idea. If for nothing else, the "Smile you're on camera" signs tend to help...

My Sawzall, 1/4 inch corded drill and 1/4 inch close quarters cabinetmakers drill all date from 88-89 and continue to cut and drill. Other than replacing a cord on my drill, they have never required a repair. Milwaukee was pretty much the go to choice then. That said, most all of the tool manufactures make quality tools. Guys in the trades simply won't settle for crap.
