Huge thanks to the WyCo work crew:

Mark Hogins - Both Days!
Ed Gonzales
Jim Sherwood
Tammie Morrison
Bryan Guthrie

And all those dozens of people that played WyCo this weekend and provided us with feedback on the course.

Things done:
1. Move unused #14 pin to new short location at #17 - DONE!
2. Remove bent #18 - DONE!
3. Clean gunky old printed signs off of the metal tee signs to prepare for new printed signs to be applied next week. Mostly done, seven signs to go.
4. Replace #18 sign post and put up replacement sign. Will need to stencil #18 on it in black. They are painting it white for me today. - DONE!
5. Determine where mulch is needed on course then drive to load up truck and return to distribute it - repeat as necessary. The mulch is about a thirty minute round trip away. - Three loads - DONE! (Ran out of mulch)
6. Replace flags if I can get a new set by then. - This may or may not happen before the tourney. We may have pursued this too late. They will be placed on order though.

I took several registrations over the weekend at WyCo. I haven't gotten the online registrations from the weekend yet and we are at 57. I beleive we are going to fill prior to Sunday morning. If you are thinking about playing you need to let me know ASAP.

We have plenty of room for Open, Pro Masters and Women's divisions. Intermediate and Advanced are both getting to be pretty crowded fields, 15 and 13 respectively at this point.

The tourney is now officially half full - 45 pre-registrations over a week before the event.

The long range forecast for next Sunday the 11th at Weather.com is 56 degees and sunny with only a 10% chance of precipitation and winds out of the south at 9mph! Can you say, "ideal conditions"?   8) 8)

It's official. I have a pile of wood chips waiting for me at Wyandotte County Lake.

I will be at WyCo no later than 9:30am tomorrow (3/3) and 10am on Sunday (3/4) to get started.

Things to do:
1. Move unused #14 pin to new short location at #17
2. Remove bent #18
3. Clean gunky old printed signs off of the metal tee signs to prepare for new printed signs to be applied next week.
4. Replace #18 sign post and put up replacement sign. Will need to stencil #18 on it in black. They are painting it white for me today.
5. Determine where mulch is needed on course then drive to load up truck and return to distribute it - repeat as necessary. The mulch is about a thirty minute round trip away.
6. Replace flags if I can get a new set by then.

I will have all tools and an extra pair of work gloves with me. Lunch and beverages are on the club for those that actively assist in these tasks.

Call or PM me if you have questions.

I am pulling the unused pin from near the woods on #14, just to the east of the original pin. We have only played #14 there for about two weeks in the four years the pin's been there. I think it can be put to better use elsewhere. So putting in the new #17 will involve pulling and old pin and placing it in a new location. The ground is soft enough that it should be prety easy. I also plan to pull the bent #18 long out and filling in the hole. A new long placement for that hole will be put elsewhere at a later date.

Help will be greatly appreciated.  :)

So if your not a beginner or a master, and just want to improve the level of play, any of the leagues would be OK then?  8)

Correct. WyCo usually gets a good group of both masters and open. Rarely do we get many women on the course but there is also usually a pretty competitive advanced card but not as big a group as open and masters. There's plenty of room to grow though.

What day of the week?

Looks like they are talking Sunday at 10am. I plan to talk all into lending a hand with some course maintenance so I can play too....  If I have time on Sunday. I'm good to go on Saturday.

I'll be at WyCo to do some work on the course at 10am on both Saturday and Sunday.

If I get done before this conflagration commmences I will gladly drop #20 into the fray.

The amount of work to be done depends upon the parks folk getting me some wood chips. Otherwise it will just be a little clean up and one pin placement move. Sunday I'll be addressing the issue of tee signs.

Bring your warm gloves and work boots and put in an hour or two before the Chip Chuckers begin. It'll give you a nice warm feeling inside, or maybe that 40 will do that..... ;D

I'm waiting to hear back from the park's folks about wood chips. If I can get some wood chips down this weekend that would be great. I plan to be there around 10am both days to see what I can get done.

42 pre-registered as of this post.

As soon as the forecast for next Sunday comes out I think it will tell the tale. Right now the long range forecast at weather.com goes out to Saturday the 10th. They are calling for Saturday to be 56 degrees with 60% chance of showers but only 10mph wind. But that's the day before........    ;D

Work day at WyCo this Sunday. I'll be out there Saturday too but Sunday will be nicer and I am scheming on some wood chips to put down in some of the muddy spots.

And the remaining players still get to swap tags based upon score at the end of the round anyway. So the guy that got number two on hole #16 when the previous owner had to bail may give it right back up after losing to the guy with #30 at the end of the round. It sounds more complicated than it is I think.

How long is #17?  That thing is a beast.

To answer your question:

17   B   618
   A   747

I suspect the C placement I have in mind will be closer to 520 or so. Fairly short by WyCo standards....   ;D

I'll have first and second round distances posted soon.

It's close to the tourney layout. Bryan moved things on Saturday (thanks Bryan) and came pretty close to what I had planned. There are only two baskets that aren't set for the first round. #14 will be across the pond both rounds and I hope to have a new pin in for #17 using the space opened up last year in a shorter placement for the second round while using the original long placement the first. So that will be six or seven pins moved between rounds the day of the tourney. I'll have exact layouts and distances available to handout the day of the tourney as well as online beforehand.
