Keizer, Let me know who the supervisor was that "authorized this" as that is not the case and in fact it had been asked to be removed by the director of the park on many instances. 

What I would like to do in lieu of this is to work with the people that knew Denise and plant a tree in the area with a plaque acknowledging their support.  Some type of memento that does not look like a cut up wooden cross.

I would not want the club to buy this, but would be willing to work with the family at coming up with some type of idea to make this happen.

Let me reiterate though the P&R at no time authorizes any type of display like this in any parks, and are encouraged to have it removed as quickly as possible. 

This is the plan that I came up with after speaking with my ex brother inlaw whose sister passed in the desert about 15 years ago and every year their family makes a pilgrimage to the spot, so lets make it something that works and give life to us all.

Cliff Drive / new holes
« on: February 25, 2009, 09:22:01 AM »
There are new pin placements on the following holes-
#10, middle, tricky green, watch your putts or they will go down the hill
#11, new pad (by the reservoir, top of hill), 2 pins, one short with the road, and hill come into play, and the other is now SUPER long, on the North end of the reservoir.
#17 long island hole, there is a new placement for the pad as well.  Across the road in the triangle.

There are a few differences on the pads in a few locations, but it is getting there.

So come out and play, this course is getting good folks, it is getting close to being ready for prime time players....

That was my plan....I have not heard back from the P&R yet, but here is what I was told yesterday morning.

You guys should have gotten the rock with the lumber, that was my bad.  I can bring it whenever you need it.  I will find out if they will pour on Saturday, you guys got finishers right?

So I groaned, and sent a letter off to the P&R asking them to please put the rock in the box for us, I have volunteered to go out on Thursday if need be, rock in the rain is not a problem....

will keep you all posted as I learn the events.

I will follow up with the P&R.  I got all the lumber to my house last night, I forgot your grill Dan, which is by #1 still.

I'll let you know what I find out from the city.  I had asked yesterday if they could do a Saturday pour, but they thought that we were finishing, and I sent a note yesterday asking them to bring in the gravel, and place it, since they had more machines.  I have Thursday afternoon where I am to go to Thornfield, but if I need to be at Cliff on Thursday to make this happen I will.

Will keep you posted.  THanks for fixing it!

its in the starter if it was good, then it was good......its at the shop, I had it towed there last night.....stupid old truck, and $90 tow bill....but hey its ok.

On the pads....here is what I got from the city today, and I did not really like it, but hey it is what it is.

They are going to find out when the concrete can come in, I guess they are under the impression that we will finish the pads.  They were planning on bringing in the gravel and actually were supposed to bring it with the lumber last week.  So now I have to figure out when they will bring it, and when they will use it to dump, or if they expect us to do that as well......I am going to get some finalization from the other folks in the P&R to ensure that this is the plan.

I also would like to thank all of the following for the help
Mike Keizer
Dan Weinart
Kelly Warren
Steve Hostetler
Nick Winklebauer
John Buckle
Brett Long
Steve Glover
Christopher Timko
Mike Keizer 2 buddies
Mr./Mrs. Tom Butler
Falco
Gus


Who else am I missing?  It is coming along quite nicely, and hopefully we will be able to pour as early as this weekend, so.....pass along the information, and I will get confirmation of dates.

Thanks,

Jack

all pads same size
16x8 in the rear
x4 in the front
Plan on heading ahead with Kelly to level and string off the pads, as we finish people can come in and align the wood against the string, and it will be level, then next week get the city to come and pour and finish.
Wood was dropped off by hole #8 basket today, so we will use the "party area" as the staging launch.

It is happening folks......
