I have both Liberty baskets... DiscNation and Salient. They are not interchangeable...meaning, you can't take the pole from one and use it on the other... Salient changed the diameter of the pole a bit... So weird... Must have found discount parts to assemble a Liberty-like basket.

Though, I can't see how wind could have done that... it's still metal after all...

So I've been working really hard for the past 8 months to get this new course tournament ready for an event this weekend. The park includes a fenced in dog park pretty much in the middle of the property.

As the snow has melted, I've noticed an abundance of doggie "land mines" OUTSIDE the confines of the dog park, specifically on the 18th green. The hole is along the border of the park and some fairly high dollar homes that do not have fenced yards. I've seen people come from those homes with their dogs, unleashed, as the make their way to the dog park area.

I went out today, shovel in hand, to remove what i thought was a few land mines. I spent a solid 30 freakin minutes on the 18th green(red shaded area) cleaning enough poop for 3 dozen dogs!!! WTF???!!



I initially thought that I'd leave it all in the nearest backyard BUT from the above photo I wasn't 100% sure which house the offending dog owner lived. SO............ I decided to leave said land mines on a key trail(yellow arrow) that leads to/from their houses.



Am I a bad person for doing this?

Not as bad as people who let their dog take a dump wherever and don't clean it up.

I've played on DiscNation Liberty baskets before...can't imagine winds less than hurricane force would break the pole.
The problem is it's a 3 pole design, and the bottom male pole/sleeve is more like a 2part pole with a couple dink welds that break and turn the bottom third into an articulating elbow.

I had to beef up and weld 9 of these bottom pole/sleeves, plus the male and female locking tab on the male/female sleeves or else you could just rip the basket out easily. The Main 2 part powder coated poles and the basket is sturdy.

The 3 pole design makes it cheaper to ship, and it makes it a good portable basket for tournaments.

I see...it was the post that bent. When it was Discnation, they sold the post separately so I never got one...my salient liberties have the post.

I would've added a sign next to the pile. "Presents Returned", perhaps.

I'd say it was a bad move as I doubt it will change behavior... That being said, it is pretty funny

No. In fact, I am a little disappointed that you didn't leave one yourself. Like "That's not a knife, this is a knife."
