Shawnee Mission / Re: Shawnee League - Next week.
« on: May 21, 2009, 10:44:35 am »
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.....

Last time I checked, Loomis was not the designer of the course, one should check with Dirk and the planned additional placements in the future before changing the pad designs. 

Dirk has been working on this course for a couple of years now, and we are close to pads, they can always change, but I guess I did not realize that the white flags were not in alternate locations from the existing pads.

So renegade golf was the league last night?

Interesting.....hopefully this information was shared with the people that walk the course, talk with the P&R and understand the long term goals, not just the lonely night of Tuesday league....

#3 & #4 are real bad with it, if you look at the plant you can see all the nettles, the best thing for it is MUD, let it dry on it and then rub it out after about 20 minutes....

I mentioned this as well.......but its really not the same event, you have to do 2 days, 4 courses, and hopefully no rain to deal with....and Cliff Drive will be in even better shape, and hopefully with pads.....

I sure hope so, I have pushing it that way, and now the weather is cooperating.  This is the same at SM Park, where they hope to have a few pads done in time for the Wide Open as well.....

Nothing beats cold steel on ice though.....well, Samursosorov just took a blade to the face, he had 48 stitches, but didn't miss a shift..........

Looks like the little fella got Turf toe and will miss 8-10 weeks......

Some pro athletes play with the pain and the desire....others are football players....(ok B-Ball players are the worst)

What night is your draft Tom?

I want to draft Tinkerbell.....

Supposed to.....check out the "New Thread" in cliff drive.....I really wish I would have started one like each month now, it would have been a joke....

waiting at this point is not an option, trying to get all courses done the last month before this event would be suicide......
