I wanted to put out a reminder to all east side do-gooders there will be a Wide Open Workday next Saturday and then again the following  Saturday. These days will be the last chance to help Blue Valley look its best for the WO. Saturday June 7th - nine to noon - be there or be square!

Blue Valley / Re: Kids league

This will be a six week scheduled kids league. Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30. June 5, 12, 27 and July 10, 17, 24. Steve Dresser and I will both be out with our kids for all six weeks. This is a no-cost, all fun league. Kids of all ages are welcome but no drop-offs are allowed (you have to stay with your kid/s). DGW has donated  5$ off coupons to start the kids out with their own discs. We will see how things go and adjust as necessary but I see this as as starting out with 15- 20 minutes of instruction then playing the short 9 holes at baby blue. Super little kids (4-5) can learn how to putt at the warm up basket before moving on to the course. If your a dad with some coaching experience bring your kids and come out and help or just play (just come out). I hope to see you guys out there at Blue Valley Park "The best course in town."

Wide Open Work Day - First Saturday of June 7 and also the following weekend June 14. OB lines need to be painted, inner course baskets need to be pulled, circles need to be painted around the baskets, and all the other normal stuff such as picking up trash/ branches from the fairways. P&R is going to come through and get most of the remaining brush piles removed and possibly remove the downed tree from #5. I've been replacing flowers, etc. in the planters at #1's parking lot. BV is going to look sweet for the WO - come out and help.

Between the GBO and Swope Spring renewal everybody was busy golfing. I did pick up some trash and check out how the park is being mowed. I decided to put Long 7 on the maybe next year list - as it is not being mowed under the current contract.

It really would need to be mowed, it is way overgrown, and would take forever to do with a weedeater. I will talk with some higherups about putting this on the list to get mowed again (starting next year). Like Jack said, L7 would be a much better use of time - and really pretty easy to do.
I want to put a basket in the other end of L11's valley to be used as Short 13's pin placement, as it is all cleared out and ready to go. I think that valley, with all of the rock ledges, is the coolest of the whole park.

P&R says that they all ready have a signed contract for mowing the park and the field for L5 is not on the list, so maybe next year.

E-mail sent, we'll see what they say.

I will ask P&R if they can mow L5. S5 would be a good placement for the short course.

Putting a pin placement back (is it still there?) for L5 would be a big project and hard to maintain. My main focus is making the inner course more of a go to course and beautifing  BIG Blue for the big arms and Tournaments. Jack, I will be there for the May 5th league night.

I agree Jack, and there is more that I would add to the list. With a few more workdays/volunteers Blue Valley will be all that it can be for the Wide Open. It would be nice to do a walk through with you and give/get some ideas. I am working with P&R to get the rest of the brush piles and tree stumps removed. Super long 7 needs to be cleared for the WO, and I have some great ideas for new pin placements for L11, S13, L15, and L16.
I see 4 par 5's out there - for tournament play (3, 7, 9, 18)

Thanks to all who came out and helped today - the park looks awesome, and is ready for some tournament play. See you guys at the COF.

I puled a large bag trash off of #1 and another off of #12 (the mtnbkrs got some there too) #1 looks good but #12's hill is depressing. Signs won't help (even if they are written in Spanish) they know they're not supposed to dump there. I would put some boulders beside the road so you can't park and dump by #1's hill and by the road at #12's tee pad.
