Work day this Wednesday, June 15th at 5:30
« on: June 12, 2016, 09:08:14 PM »
Hello,

I sent several folks a text message who expressed interest in a work day.  I know that week days might seem weird to have a work day but a couple folks already agreed to this night and 3 of us is a good start.  I hope to push back fairways, raise ceilings, and maybe some spraying. It really needs some love and it would be nice to get it looking good for the rest of the summer. 

Cold drinks provided by the club. 


John

PM if you have any questions.  We could likely move some baskets for Joe as well.

Work day is on.

I got my saws ready and took them apart, cleaned the air filters, chains  sharpened, and are razor sharp ready to cut.

Back sprayer is loaded up

2 containers of Tordon

2 loppers

Gatorades and water and Nate is grabbing adult beverages

1 chain saw, 1 telescoping pole chainsaw, 1 pole  hand saw

2 rakes


Bring yourselves.  We go the gear.  We need some more mules.

30 hours of volunteer work by:
Brain Sweezy
Nate Zier
Greg Matton
Tyler Matton
Kevin Weiss
Charles Byrd
Scott Murphy
Husker Ben
Collin

With a fresh mow that was LONG over due, and major trimming, the course looks much better.  Thanks to Kevin and Tyler for allowing us to use their trucks for hauling out debris.  I was able to get out there early and trim out a bunch so our army of workers had plenty to pull and stack in the trucks and we were able to work effectively as a team and accomplish a lot.  Everyone worked really hard.  I hope to get out this summer and get back to spraying the edges to keep things knocked down.

Thanks KCFDC for the drinks and stump killer.  Biggest work day that we have ever had out there on a night that folks could have chosen to play numerous courses or leagues or just stay home in the AC.  Thanks everyone.  The course needed it badly.

Awesome job guys!  I wish I could've made it to help out.  Can't wait to see it on Saturday.

Played the course for the first time in a year or so at FTL and it looked wonderful. The only issue I noticed was that the AC didn't seem to be functioning properly.

Thank you to all that put in time!!

The blackberries were pretty tasty too.
