Prolly the biggest issue for tee pads are the heavy mowers used by the P&R guys.  If only they could learn to steer around the pads... 

WyCo's pads have a lot of cracks and tire tracks.  :'(

Its not the mowers, it is the Trash Trucks picking up the trash that have done that at both Rosedale and WyCo, the mowers typically do not go over the pads, and when they do its the little machine, not the tractor.  Since we have to pick up our trash in the KC MO Parks (shameless plug to please pack out what you brought in, and use CANS if you must!!) it is not as big of an issue.

They seem to know what they are doing, but I sent a last letter of request, what I would hate to have happen is to slow the process down while waiting for something else at this point.  It is really looking like we will haev pads next week....

P&R will fix/replace any pad that breaks, I agree, I worked hard at getting this in the plans, but hey overall feel as though it is not needed.  They have been historically very good at fixing/replacing pads in our other courses that need doubt that it will change, but I'll cend a note off..

I plan on being there, now I did see Rain in the forecast......

P&R doesn't want Re-bar in there, they want to make them easy to destroy if they need to move them at a future date.  Unless you can give me stronger reasons as to why the rebar other than to make ti stronger, I doubt they will go that direction.

Lumber is my garage if you wanna fix #12, I will be out of town until Monday afternoon....

I think the question was more for which courses they are going to play on which day.....

Thanks again Loomis.  I am going to try and make it out there next week.  We are working on an alternate location for #6.  Dirk met with the P&R about that and moving in some earth on #3 to push it back further.  The parks department is really getting behind this project, and I expect as we move forward many people will be happier overall with the changes that you are probably not aware of.

Its not that we don't want to share, but it takes time, and effort and energy, and it also takes limited vision to make these work.  Course it takes a village to build it though!!

I got a note from P&R, they got 11 of them done, plan on having the rest finished by tomorrow, will be pouring next week.

If you are reading this, please do me a favor and don't throw from the pads.  Move to the side, in front, behind, renegade, I don't care just don'r mess them up.

I was able to get a lot more mowing done around #2, and the green of #1.  I'll keep on working it.

Thats all good.  I just know that many people are not aware that we have basically 3 pins planned at most of the holes, and right now everything is set at an A placement to get the folks acclimated to the land, and ease of finding.

The more the merrier....

YEOUCH.  I will be out there tonight working around #2, and #3, if time allows #4.....
