Today we were fortune enough to have a couple groups of workers out today doing multiple jobs.  Thanks to everyone who came out today to supply help.  Those people are:

Steve H
John T
Eric K

Kiezer, John, and Eric worked on making the path down from 11's Teepad safer while Jason and myself finished hanging arrows.  Timko and Steve also helped myself and Jason with #8's bridge. Which hopefully we will finish by next weekend.  Good Work and there WILL be more work days leading up to some bad weather.  Next Saturday morning I will be out at the course is the weather permits finishing #8

We are going to finish putting up some arrows and then we are going to be building an arm rail for hole #8's bridge. Also I want to shore up 10-11 bridges and do some basic clean up on those holes too.  Please come out if you can.  The more people the better for moving a lot of brush and hammering some nails. 

Meet at 12:30pm on hole 12

Today we put up orange arrows to help guide new players around the course.  Also we put up yellow arrows to show alternate tee pads.  Hope everyone likes it.

I'll call you with what I need.  Saturday morning might be good for me.  Just to go through and put up signs.  Sunday I may have another smaller work day in order to put up a foot and hand rail on #8.

Well what I originally planned was to take the current stairs on 16 and re build them and put them on the side of the hill.  The dug out hole-steps are nice for now but errosion will make those little slippery hills over time so that is not a good enough fix. 

Speaking of the work that has been done on the DU to this point.  I would like to get ahold of Steve or whoever it is so we can get on the same page.  Its great that there is other work going on down there BUT now that I'm taking care of it I need to be in the loop of further plans and current projects.  If we continue on this path of working in these seperate groups we will eventually be shooting each other in the foot.  If we have parallel goals then we can achieve a much greater outcome. 

If anyone knows Steve's # or talks to hime at all please tell him to get ahold of me.  I would rather have him and whoeve else helping in a common good so we can accomplish more.  I have many plans for that course and I need cooperation with everyone involved to make sure it all goes smoothly.  I know the work he and whoever else has done is great but I did run for CC and I would like to make sure I have some what control over what happens in the future.  Just keep me in the loop.

I want to thank Dave Emerson and his buddy Rich and also Nick Wink for coming out this morning to help fix #8's bridge.  It is 10000000 times better than it was but there are a few more tweeks I'll hopefully be adding myself this week when I have some free time and weather permitting. 

Other things that are on the todo list and I would like to have done :

arrows and signs for getting around the course and for finding alt tee pads
new benches where there are none. 
clear out a spot on #1 to move the current bench
rake the fairways or at least some paths
new stairs on 16. the current ones are fine but I have a permanent one I want in.
Clear out dead trees and use them to line the fairways.

and many many more things but thats a start

The great thing about Rosedale is there is one or more people that actually will go thru and get all the cans out.  I'm not saying that these people wont use the trash cans for normal trash, but at least making an effort to point that out might sway at least some people to think a little on what they bring down the next time is all.  No it wont be a perfect system but ANYTHING is better than what we have now. 

I had an old boss that believed if every day you did 1% than in 10 days you would have completed 10% and 20 days 20% and so on.  If we dont do something then will never know the effects.  Right now we have a lack of communication with the "outside" disc golf world.

I played with Kevin at WW and SWOPE in the past 6 months.  He was back from duty but then being deployed again I believe for the LAST time.  So when he comes back I think he is done.

Here in the next few months I will be adding a Sign or "Marquee" on hole 1 of Down Under.  One thing I was going to put on that sign is information on the course/club/website and also try to inform people that in a "green" effort we are putting in CAN ONLY recycling bins.  And that all other trash, BOTTLES and such should be taken up and out.  Now this I believe goes right along with what Golden had brought up last night.  Right now I'm trying to come up with the right phrase or sentences to make our point while still being friendly and inviting to new players.

If anyone has any GOOD ideas on how to word this in as FEW AS WORDS POSSIBLE I would like to hear your thoughts.

In a nutshell the sign will say:

Welcome to Rosedale Down Under
Green Jargen about Cans/trash/bottles
For more info contact

and maybe some tips for getting around DU.  via new orange arrows, ect.

If by this we can even deter 10% to bring CANS ONLY that will make a big difference in the amount of trash we have to lug up to the top.

We will need a chainsaw to cut Trees up that are already down. just so we can cut to fit.  If the weather premits I may go out Sat. still but sunday may just be better.  I will only have until 1pm or so so please show up by 9:30am so we can crack some things.  I would like to move beyond the bridge on 8 as well but we will need to get started and finished asap.  I dont think it will be a big undertaking.

My buddy Steve and I were just talking about putting up some directional signs the other day - I believe I mentioned this to you Dick.  Anyway, we were thinking plywood painted hunter orange and put them throughout the course esp in places like 11 to 12.  Being a "newbie" to both disc golf and the course, I had a hard time the first few times knowing where to go, hence why I was thinking arrow signs.  Anyway, I'll talk to you about it Saturday (if the warden lets me out).

I may be changed to Sunday.  It all depends on the weather for Sat morn.  There is talk of Snow.  DU and SNOW dont really work together but We'll see .  Keep looking here for updates.  Yes I think Bright colored pieces of BC in the somewhat shape work.  Another Idea I have is just a 12" section of 2x4 painted bright orange with the same idea.  And I think with be easier to cut quickly.  I did it for my mini course (using a YELLOW) and they look great.
