Several people will be meeting at Water Works on Saturday morning starting at 8 p.m. to bring the course into readiness for the Wide Open. One of the main tasks is to get rid of as much of the deadwood that is peppering the course. Some chipping might need to be done as well. If you have some time, please lend a hand. If you have time before Saturday, please start removing the dead wood. Either pile it in the lower parking lot, or start making piles that we can pick up on Saturday. The city is supposed to be out there today removing the large down trees.

I'll see what the Club has in terms of shovels, rakes, clippers, etc, but if you have your own tools that you can bring, that would be great.

Lunch and beverages will be provided.

Let me know if you can attend, or just show up! Thanks.

So... maybe by the end of the day, all courses will be in their appropriate layout for the KCWO?

Thanks to everyone who helped out yesterday—Terry Adams, Jed Neenan, Jamie Barrie, Dan Cashen, Mike Keizer, Jim Kreeger, Becky Stebbins, Jon Stebbins, Aaron Johnson, Ken Hosteter, Bruch Wehling, Graham Long, Rick Rothstein. (I hope I didn't miss anyone who actually helped.) We moved lots of deadwood, removed low hanging branches to facilitate mowing, removed weeds and saplings growing at the base of tree trunks, removed the mud from Terrapin Station, weed ate tee and basket areas, and chipped several greens (or I think so...as a crew was still going strong when I left at 3). The Wide Open's featured course should be looking great after it gets mowed tomorrow or Tuesday. Nice job everyone!

We played Sunday AM....nice job to all!  The course looks great, length of grass aside!
There are going to be some great opportunities for photo's.

Any update on parking? Will the Cerner lot across the street be open for Sunday?

I've never understood why the national anthem is played at sporting events. They are commercial events. The national anthem is not played at movies or plays and usually, not at concerts or nightclubs. What benefits do you see Jamie?

Jamie likes noise.

Jamie feels that we should be blaring music at all disc golf events, and when the music stops the first time, it means 2-minutes, then when it stops all together, it means start.

Me neither. You get all comfortable in your seat, skillfully balancing beer in one hand, footlong in the other, then you have to stand up and take your hat off and put your beer against your chest and recite a few lyrics in between bites of your footlong...

Just not worth it, IMO.
