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......

This is not the first team professionally since the blades....the Outlaws were here and played hockey when the NHL wouldn't......Its good to have hocky, but this level is not what I will pay for a season of to watch.  Bring in an AHL team at least, where over 75% of the NHL'ers have played and then I would pony up for tix.  I imagine I'll go to a few games, but just a few...

Why not start a new thread.....

Here is the latest that I got from the P&R yesterday.

-------------- Original message from Louis Cummings  --------------

I plan to work these pads this week off and on. I want to have them finished by the middle of next week.

Tee Pad Update need for Cliff Drive Corridor Meeting


If you could let me know a timeline that would be great. I am sure to get asked this at the meeting tomorrow night.

There is also a few homeless people living around the course right now, in our fairway of #1, and by a tee pad on the top of the hill by the turn where the trash can is.

I plan on going there tonight and putting everything in a trash bag and dropping it off down by the trash can around the corner. I imagine it'll tick them off though...

We have anchored everything for the railroad ties up by #1 position for us, it just needs to have earth to fill it, and then leveled, we will also want to bring in some large boulders to help give it a proper look within the park.

Let me know what you know if you can, so I look good in front of Mike and the rest of the Board tomorrow night.



So pads should start to be done this week and next.  Keizer and I tackled a large portion of what Aaron started on #3 to clear out the cliff and the weeds.  I plan on working on #4 tonight to finish the mowing towards the basket, and clearing out part of the hillside off the drop.  Here is what I need to accomplish-
#1-more of the green to the south/west of the basket, and clear it all out for better access.  Clean up around the old pad area with the overgrowth.
#2-hillside to the West of the pad, and down towards the basket.
#3-trail to the pad, and cliff, and the hillside
#4-left & right of the stairs (spray weeds?) mow the short placement hillside, and back by the basket that needs mowing.
#5-take out dead tree to the right side of the fairway, clear out top area for long placement, possibly looking at old teeing area for alternate basket as clear out the entire area
#6-mow West side of fairway towards original placement
#7-clean up the hillside green (not the long one yet)
#8-clean pad area, in front of the pad expose the wall again all the way up to the stage.
****Use the old forms to create a little stage, 16'x16' so as we get the pads poured create a stage in the stage area for future usage.****

The list looks long, but in all honesty its really getting easy to look at.  I am skipping worrying about #12 right now on the side of the hill until after the worlds probably unless we get everything else on this list above done.  The other things that I am doing is trying to make it easier for the mowers, and we can all help is throw rocks in piles.  We will use them for other places, but right now on #3 right by the trees towards the path people take to #4 you can see a pile, and on #7 to the right side of the entrance to the green.  ON both of these holes there are a lot of rocks that are there, and if we throw them in a pile, we will use them at other locations on the course, like the flower bed by #8's pad.....

You can help make this course worlds ready just by picking up trash as well.  Anything you do is going to help.  Please think of this not only at cliff drive, but at all courses.

They got TiVo for just such a reason....

We had 15 out at league!
