Took me a moment to figure out IC = idiot chucker.

Yesterday was a nice weather day and the course was packed. I played solo, and picked up anything I deemed a out I expect to make, and wouldn't you know it: my putting improved!

Saw some groups of two, mostly young boyfriend/ girlfriend being ridiculously close, a few groups of 5+ IC's...being IC's, and a few well-distanced groups doing the right thing.

We’re just very different people then.

I do wash my hands at an almost OCD level.

Ignore me and carry on. Avoid touching the baskets and putting, then subconscious touching of the face shouldn’t be an issue.

Local courses that don’t want people playing should say so. The IC crowd isn’t going to see the PDGA message let alone follow anything they say. These are the same idiots that litter.

We’ve been cleaning up after the idiots for years. The parks are already well aware of this.

One local disc golf page is having issues with a couple of it's members. A picture of a small group all leaning on the basket with comments about how they can do what they want. No matter how big the flame war gets they do not change their stance.

Local authorities are also on these pages, see this irresponsibility and could shut or pull the course.

The entitlement of some of these idiots has no ceiling.

Judging by our club's FB page, local IC's have taken this as an opportunity to get some rounds in together. In the past week alone:

- A selfie of a group huddled around a basket
- Calls for people to get together and throw
- Attempts to organize unofficial random draw doubles
- Players travelling from out of state to play local courses
- An ace picture with two players reaching into the basket simultaneously

Not counting the ongoing chucker apocalypse at almost every local course. All while Ohio is under a stay-at-home order. Courses are going to get pulled here, and when they do, it won't be a priority for the local parks departments to put them back.

I believe we're talking about the same page.

I think so. It's unreal the attitudes of these few.

Growing up on the farm didn't do much to make me a germaphobe. Presumably it did give me a strong immune system. I am also socially distant at the best of times. That does not mean I do not take the virus seriously though.

Only courses I am venturing to currently are one that is populated solely with cattle and one that literally no one but me has access to as we haven't opened it yet. Public courses can wait. Disc golf is not that important.

For those who are still playing, what are you doing if you find discs?

A comment earlier in this thread about feeling up plastic at the disc store, got me thinking about finding lost discs on the course. I found a Star Beast last week and called the number, but now I'm thinking of just leaving what I find. I'm not really worried about baskets, but discs get felt up pretty good during a throw.
