I appreciate all that the volunteers do. I know how much work and money it takes to develop courses. I can still remember myself and Ned Smethers hand digging and forming 9 tee boxes on the original Olathe course. I can remember myself, my father-in-law, my brother in law, and my wife building/welding the 18 baskets and chain assemblys which were later sold. I remember mowing and weed eating all the putting circles before the Big O several years in a row, and hacking out, mowing and setting up a temp course two years in a row for the Big O. Of course, my labors and personal expenditures were long ago, and not nearly as signifigant as all the things that have been going on recently.
Like I said, I REALLY appreciate all that the club, and especially the folks that get out and work their asses off to give me more places to play do.
The club keeping the ACE fund if not hit is none of my business. I only commented because I just played the Glass Blown and thought the playoff for the ACE fund was fun.
