"They need to do something about the tee pads here"
"They need to cut the grass"
or my all time favorites
"They need to clean up the thorns where I lost my disc along fairway such and such"
"They need to build a bridge over that creek"
"They need better signs, short tees"

I always keep my lips shut but I wonder what my actual expression is doing as I am the "they that these people criticize. I wanna hear some stories from other people who actually put the work in that their courses. I have a feeling most of the critics here are not volunteers and do little work on their home courses.

Some of my fellow volunteers say I shouldve punched the one guy in the face for complaining about a tee after we volunteers worked all weekend improving the other 11.

I also love when you are out sweating your ass off covered in cuts from thorns and your alone and clearing schule and some drunk yahoo says something like...."hey you guys need to clear that crap to the left on hole 3 about 150 feet in I always lose my disc in there"

One day perhaps THEY will snap and let these types have it.
Anyone know why THEY (optidiscic) got banned ?

I love those who indicate they would like to help knock down the rapid Spring growth (15+ inches tall) but when push comes to shove they are invisible. They know that this soon to be 70-yr-old (me) will get it done by himself; at least they heap thanks on me and continue to enjoy the manicured course. Maybe they will show up when I'm in my 80s and might not be able to provide the same. I guess the course really needs to become horrendous and largely unplayable before they become visible. I can hope that some help still might show up as I'm only 50% done the Spring manicuring; if not it will get done.

Default Absolute opposite experience today

We had over 20 volunteers show up today, from in some cases many miles away (30-100), to help finish a new course. All brought equipment and enthusiasm, most brought strong backs, and we finished in half the allotted time. Happy guy.

I think he asked for it, literally. Got tired of arguing with the trolls but could not contain himself.

Yeah, he self-banned. If he asked to come back he would be unbanned, becasue he is banned for really no reason.

I got in some more I AM THEY time today. We did some more creek clearing, hazah! Sorry, for no before pictures. Just imagine a parks and rec department that has aqua phobia and hasn't touched anything near the water all season.

Thanks. I wondered what happened to optic. A self ban, kind of like Midnightbiker. Midnight thought that he was hooked and had a problem. He has posted here and there, but nothing like the days when he and Sol were dueling post whores.
