  1. check out Chicken N Pickle or Greater Okc Pickleball Club Address: 1312 S Pennsylvania Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73108
  2. with management like this, we are doomed. Look, if you aren't going to do your duties correctly, then resign as a manager.
  3. maybe an idea for a new category -- Recreation - Sports Multifarious. In my area, they have started making Pickleball Courts - which would have the same problem. When I was in school, we had a Flickerball Field - think Basketball-ish goal, played with an American football, absolutely NO CONTACT. Played a lot like Soccer, lots of passing, not much running with the ball.
  4. I had been using the map for a couple years, trying to figure out if there were disks I could try to find (I wanted a disk for my first find, the rods just aren't very photogenic). But thanks for the hint, in case I hadn't known.
  5. AlRight! I have my first posted US Benchmark waymark. Now, I'm doing research to be the first one in Oklahoma to post an Azimuth Benchmark. It looks like those are a bit harder to find. I'm also working on finding a real NGS Benchmark disk and a rod. Learning new stuff, collecting new icons.
  6. Welcome to @BRISTOLIAN, and congrats on your first published waymark
  7. Cool. I found this "in the wild", as in not from any published data. I was looking at an old bridge, for Orphaned Bridges category, and saw this on it. I have tried (not really hard) a couple times to find benchmark medallions, and haven't so far. But I have a data sheet for one that is supposed to be near one of my recent waymarks that is close to home.
  8. OK, new question. As this is a USGS mark, not a NGS disk, can it be waymarked in the US Benchmark category?
  9. Welcome to @Mugger52, and congrats on your first published waymark
  10. I found this USGS Gaging Station Reference Mark on an old bridge. I don't see a PID for it. it's at 35° 32' 45" N , 97° 58' 10" W but it doesn't show on the USGS map (National Geodetic Survey Data Explorer (noaa.gov). Am I searching for the wrong thing, or in the wrong place?
  11. OK, I don't know anything about benchmarks. But while scouting an orphaned bridge, I noticed this US Geological Survey Reference Mark. it's at 35° 32' 45" N , 97° 58' 10" W but it doesn't show on the USGS map (National Geodetic Survey Data Explorer (noaa.gov). Am I searching for the wrong thing?
  12. Welcome to @yahnski, and congrats on your first published waymarks
  13. Welcome to @TeamSanro, and congrats on your first published waymark
  14. that should do. If you could email me a picture of the sign, and another of the pub front. And why don't you have a pint for me in remembrance of my 3 years in Bedfordshirel
  15. We have threads for ISS Sightings and Where's In A Name. Does anyone need/want help with Your Name Here? I know I have a pretty easy time with my first name (Lee), and have found 2 streets with my last name (Donlon) (only one with a picture, so far.) I have not found a sign with Vulture on it so far, so I'd be interested if anyone can help with that. Here in OKC we have a couple businesses with the name Maupin, and I am working on getting the pictures for @pmaupin. I would be happy to research for anyone else having a tough time.
  16. Every time I see @Mike_bjmpost a new waymark, I am split on his situation. The whole Isle of Man to himself -- but little chance of having ANY of his waymarks visited.
  17. Welcome to @Georgioturino, and congrats on your first published waymarks
  18. could be WWII memorials in that time frame
  19. I am working on ISS Sightings with a couple of "virgins" about 10 PM Central time on May 14 and 17. Room for players in Illinois and Missouri.
  20. I would do it as 1 waymark for the Memorial Park for all 3, put each plaque in a separate BlockQuote
  21. I have a Grain Elevators that has been waiting for 2 weeks
  22. Welcome to @MARTES, and congrats on your first published waymark. Nice to have another Okie around here.
  23. Just to be clear with PISA-caching and GGMorton -- I agree with your statements, and believe it could go in either or both categories. Max & 99 asked what we all thought. I believe the better fit is Citizen Memorial. If I saw it accepted in Disaster Memorial, I would have no complaints. I am sure that families and friends of the students killed and the school officials view it as a disaster.
  24. from the category description: Wikipedia defines a disaster as the impact of a natural or man-made hazard that negatively affects society or environment. I cannot see where this negatively effected society. They haven't even changed traffic patterns at the school to try to prevent something similar in the future. 9/11 - changed airline security worldwide. OKC Bombing - changed security around government buildings (at least in the US). Titanic - changed procedures in ships (required a radioman 24/7, required lifeboats for every person on board, etc). Exxon Valdez destroyed the Alaskan ecosystem for decades. These make the cut for a disaster. My simple opinion.
