Bench in Golden

The bench in Golden by the first hole is missing the name plate. The bench was placed there in honor of a boater who died a few years back. Who knows the story?

James showed me down a few of my first V creeks, I was supposed to be there that day. Good dude, bad day.

How would the name plate have pulled off? Vanadlism? Seems odd. Could someone be doing some work on it maybe?

btw, wanna honor James... get one of these.

They're cheap & most of us feel that it would have saved James's life that day.
