seems even sillier to spend $200 on paint for a "B" tier to paint them now.......

no you can not.  You can not camp at any KCMO park without special permission.  There really is not a lot of camping options close to the courses.  We have a large metropolitan area, and why it makes it tough to camp within the area, outside of the area we have some great camping spots, but Doug hit about the closest spot to the courses, and its still going to be about an hour to get to WyCo or Olathe from there, and about 30-40 minutes to the host hotel.

From the P&R-Lou Cummings.  I think that if they set the mixture to handle cars, it should be able to handle people like myself.....I'm just saying......

If the tee pads are only for foot traffic their is no need for rebar or mesh wire. When we pour the pads i will have the mixture set for driveway pour's this will make them strong enough.-Lou

Tee Pads at CLiff


Looking great out there, I appreciate all the work that you guys have done this week on them, I can barely wait.

I did want to try one last attempt at trying to get either mesh, or rebar in the pads, I really feel that in the long run it will be money well spent to ensure the longevity of the pads. With the size that they are I am just fearful not having something to attach the concrete to will shorten the life considerably. Although I have slept at a Holiday Inn Express, I am no concrete expeert, and therefore will abide by the pro's that you have working on it for us. If they feel that it is not needed, then fine by me.

Let me know if you have any questions. I will be out of town this weekend, but I know that there are a few guys that are loitering at the park awaiting everyday the work that is going on so if you need anything feel free to ask Dan or Keizer as I am sure they are right in the middle of it all out there!!!

Love having the help.

Most importantly, please enjoy the holiday weekend, spend some good quality time with family and friends to start off summer right!!!

Thanks guys!!

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.....
