My bad y’all.
Technically without a goal these just simply are posts. Was waiting for it to happen with as much use that the court has become an impromptu parking spot.
Those poles do blend into the background quite a bit… Maybe we could paint them a reflective yellow or neon pink.
The surviving one. That one needs removed I think
I vote sparkly:sparkles: neon pink.
sympathies to Rosa
could we fabricate a weather vane to go on top of one of the posts? also would be a good place to have one of those mini weather stations, or at least a rain gauge? a sparkly pink would be a good color for said post, with glow in the dark spots?
There is the beginnings of a weather station nailed to the bulletin board in the electronics lab with the express purpose of being hacked.
None ye harm do as ye will.
I gave permission for the bent pole to be removed yesterday evening. I didn’t stick around to supervise the removal, but it was loose and bent, so removal seemed prudent. (Obviously, I’m not on the facilities committee, but I couldn’t imagine another sensible solution given the volunteer efforts available at the time.)
Doesn’t sound like it was all that securely anchored in the ground anyway. When we set a goal as a kid, Dad welded on a 4 foot long leg going away from the goal and 2 feet deep, set on concrete. And the of l goal post was 4 inches in diameter.
The last basketball goal post I anchored called for a 6 foot deep, 3 foot square concrete (with rebar) pier. That was the vendor requirement for installation overhanging an existing driveway. That’s a lot of concrete using a portable electric mixer and bagged quickcrete. If I remember correctly the customer was happy to pay $300 because the previous quotes were over $400.
I’m not which would be worse - mixing and pouring that much quikrete or digging a hole that big!
It wasn’t made any easier by having to quickly cover up the quickcrete in a sudden wind because it decided to rain about halfway through the day. Or that there were unexpected limestone layers to break through around 4 and 5 feet down. Wasn’t the first (or last) time I said no more one day jobs that can’t afford to pay any help or to spread out over two days.
Removed or cutoff flush at the ground?
Digging it up would disturb the paving around the pole.
Seems too late so probably done. Good luck.
When I shook it it seems like it’d probably come out with some rope and a few people with weak wills and strong backs. Looks like it wasn’t sunk in correctly anyway.
Does anyone have a bumper jack and chain?
