no construction on course
« on: May 21, 2018, 08:16:31 AM »
i drove by Swope Sunday and saw no construction or preparation at all.   looks almost playable excepting no baskets and high grass.   what's up?   i'm thinking of using the tee pads to practice drives.  miss the course which was only 4 miles from my Raytown home.   now i drive much further.

City timelines.....the reality of it is that we needed to let it go as well.  The uncertainty was causing grief on many angles.  Also the idea of theft of equipment, vandalizing, and over all anger was growing.  We already had someone steal sign #1......in order to prevent more of that it was requested we go ahead and move on.  I agreed.  My thought was really an initial theft was only the beginning, and I didn't want our organization and group to be made out for a bunch of looting thieves at the park, which had already been started....
