Does anyone know what the spray painted letters on the good anchor trees stands for?

If the letters happen to be "DMC", then it stands for "Dangerous, Mob-like Cult." Other than that, I have no help to offer.

Next time, include the letters you're talking about.

PS, I know it's a regional question, but unless you add the letters, the rest of us can't take a stab at it or even have a little fun in the process...

hosh.

The paint is actually done by the High School. They have pre-measured slings that they just toss up. Not a good idea if you want to teach people how to anchor.
