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 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

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.

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......

I am slammed at work, but the plan is for me to pick up the supplies at the Parks building Friday morning.  I am hopeful that this is confirmed with a note to the parks that was sent in follow up to my conversations last week to establish this time line.  I do know that they are out of pocket until Thursday so at this point it is a go.  Do not look for any follow ups from me about it, as I will be heading into meetings the next three days, and will not be checking on this or other threads.

AS of now, yes.  We need tools to make it work, but I believe that Keizer said he has what we need.  If we have others that want to help, the more the merrier, we can maybe station the cutting of the wood, and I will have the boxes marked out to make it easy for other teams of individuals to make it happen.

Thanks and yes, please bring more help, we need it.

I am planning on starting to get the pads formed up on this w/e.  I'll be grabbing the supplies from the P&R this week or next and then will need help setting things up.  THe only holes that may have to wait will be 1 & 7, and I also want to pick up trash by #1, #5 (top of the hill that has been dumped) and if adventurous, #12.....pipe dream......

I also hope to get the baskets all replaced during this time frame with the actual baskets instead of the practice baskets.

Any and all help would be appreciated, please spread the word.

Lets try 9-3 for a time frame on Saturday, and 10-3 on sunday.

No that was your mamma I gave it to.....I got it from Bensdadfred's mamma on Monday, just passing around the gift that keeps on giving......

My first experience, was my Dad, and Mom taking me to Wildwood park back in 1978 in Ottumwa, I played a few holes, then went looking for tadpoles in the water where I think 16 is located.  This course was seriously less than 1/2 block from my grandma's, though at the time I think it was just a summer w/e event.  Then in 1984 I moved back to Oskaloosa and they had put in a 9 hole course, I of course being of sound mind and thinking that I knew everything, already thought that I knew the sport better than anyone, and started to get rides to the park.  Then I met Jim Brennan, and actually purchased my first discs, I believe it was a hammer, and #1 putter, I think, I remember it having hands holding on to it from both, and then a basket in front....shortly afterward, there were the cruiser (which floated, which was cool, since we played renegade golf in Osky, and playing over the water was tough, but better, then in 1987 the Eclipse came out, and by then it was all over.  

Actually after I wrecked my motorcycle in 1985, and got out of the hospital and rehab, and the sad realization that baseball was done for me, I started on this sport, played regularly until I moved to KC in 1990, where I couldonly find Swope and it was pay to play, kept asking about this Rosedale course, had a votex I bought here with the Rosedale Memorial Arch, and assumed the course was located there, it wasn't, and after 6 months of looking for it (the guy at Swope told me he had never heard of it, I think he wanted my $8) someone came into Oak Park Mall and listened to my sob story, said they were heading there now, I immediately asked for lunch, followed them there, found it, and then played Rosedale.  My first "organized" event was the 1992 World's Biggest, ran by none other than CD....

I moved to Chicago, and my neighbor played, he was from Joliet, where Gary Lewis ran leagues, and then I realized how good KC courses were in comparison, played Water Works before the pads went in one w/e after driving along 9 to NOWHERE but found after getting back to Rosedale, then Olathe, and by this point I had played all the courses in northern IL, central IL, and Wisconsin, Detroit, and mostly central to eastern IA.

When I visited KC after moving to chicago, I was always impressed with the way the courses looked, everyone was clean, easy to follow, and generally a solid test of game.  I promised myself when I moved to KC to get involved to help with this wonderful sport, and here you have me, deal with it!!

Thanks  Jim !!
