It's all good. It's just that something gets started then we do not hear for awhile. Thanks for the updates...hope we can get started on this before it gets 125 degrees up there.

Actually it will be pretty easy, there is a road that we will be able to drive up to and get there, it should not be a problem at all.

Help with WW and ROSEDALE right now, lets get those girls looking hot for the Wide Open NOW!

Des Moines courses were AWESOME!!

shh.....that pad's a secret......don't tell.....

1-3 clearing needs to be the priority this year, all the honeysuckle needs to be gone, and grass planted.  I can handle 6" grass, but havnig all the trees is horrible to try and clean up.

Workdays will ensue after the Wide Open.

I found that pickaxes work very well when digging out pads.    Of course shovels are great, but you can really level them off and tear through compacted  soil with the pickaxe.  let me know when the fun begins and i will bring mine.  I am looking for some projects this summer to keep me busy.  A couple of those heavy duty pickaxes can make a job much easier.

How about doing 6 foot circle tee pads at cliff.  I had played at Fountain Hills in AZ and they had that going on and they rock.  Anyway.  Just a suggestion.

Just a few random things we can bring with:
pick axe
shovels

I would like to second the motion to install circular pads at Cliff. They facilitate a greater shot selection and provide more opportunties for safari holes.

Well.....if the configuration of the pad mirrors what we sent the P&R , then forming them up that way should be ok.

If it takes more to create a circular pad, then we are out, but I am open to listening to the idea, I was already leaning towards trapezoid style pads well defrayed at the end to allow for altermate footing styles, so going cirlce is along those likes as well..


THanks,

Jack

 Circular pads would be kewl. Keep in mind that a 5' x 15' x 5" thick pad will take approx 1.2 cubic yards of concrete and a 15' dia circle 5" thick will take 2.7 cubic yards of concrete. If you decide to go circular, I would suggest you go no smaller tha 12' diameter, which if 5" thick, would take 1.7 cubic yards of concrete.

 Just offering up my 2 cents worth on the subject here.... I would recommend getting the form lumber (2x6) to do 6 boxes. Do the excavation/fill, set the forms, making sure they are well oiled, get the subbase (earth or gravel) compacted, then pour out the 6. Wait a day or two, strip the forms and repeat until all 18 are done. Doing the work this way keeps it from being too overwhelming, and keeps you from spending a huge amount on form lumber.

Circles are Sweet! ;D  And I also believe our "Cute" pads found directly south and east of Cliff offer a bit of Kansas City individuality that is appreciated across the country! I say we keep that trend going! Can I get an Amen?!
