You read one line on their website and think you've figured it out. Dont be gullible.
PUSH claims that they are a 'grassroots movement', but this particular skatepark was nothing to do with grass roots.
The skatepark idea and money was from one source, Joe Jamail. PUSH was just the middleman who he used to get it installed. Joe Jamail's role is of a front man for this group of anonymous theater crowd donors that don't endorse skating at all
but simply want the problem moved away from the downtown opera house. And if this is at the expensve of disc golf, nobody cared.
It is really offensive to all the people in HFDS and the disc golf community who fight to get what little land we have for disc golf and people like you come out of nowhere and try to say that we should just let these groups walk all over us.
If everyone had your attitude, there wouldn't be any courses left because trust me, they are ready to come in and remove disc golf at any chance they get. Why dont you go ahead and throw the rest of your discs in the bayou and just go hang out at the skatepark and do us all a favor.
