Terrible situation, however, it is nice to see a community appreciating what this Disc Golf and Rec shop is doing for them and their youth. The owner sounds like a stand-up representative for the sport.

serious question, how many disc do you think they need to sell to make 100$? I am guessing based on how much money a disc golf store makes this is a pretty solid reward.

File an insurance claim or is insurance not available in that part of the state? The proposition to offer free rent is the craziest thing I have ever heard a municipality would suggest even if the store is a non-profit.

Insurance claim was filed and paid - nothing yet on the theft. Over $8k was taken including scooters, paddleboard, raft, candy (kids?), and a box of collectors discs - irreplaceable. Travis Lindstrom (the owner of Boise Disc Golf) is a stand up guy. Please help if you see something strange online. THANKS!

Man It was such a downer to hear this. I called Travis right after he had arrived at the store that day. He sounded sooooo bummed when he answered the phone. I am feeling for him for sure and I absolutely hope they find the a$$hats that did this!

The reward was not posted by the disc shop, it was approved by the city. The city is collecting $400 a month rent on this building, and one month after opening this happens. They shot down the resolution of offering free rent for the remainder of the year; the least they could of done was put up a month's rent as a reward.
