Well, well, well.....
« on: May 18, 2009, 09:54:54 AM »
I made it out to Cliff Drive on Sunday morning and was quite impressed with what Jack and crew have done out there.  Playing the front 9 out there, I was reminded somewhat of Kaposia Park in Minneapolis.

I also enjoyed the homeless gal sleeping on Hole 1.  I decided to skip my shot at the basket because she was sleeping and as we're walking to Hole 2's tee, she sits up and I say, "How's it going?"  She replies, "Wimp".  She then says, "Are you enjoying your Sunday in the park with a picnic?".  Classic.

Anyway, had a great time and I can't wait to get back out there later this week.

I purposely didn't bother calling Jack because his reply would have been something along of the lines of "Did you know that Cliff Drive is a disc golf course?".  ;-)

What is the latest word on pads out at Cliff Drive?  Looks like it's gonna take a lot of concrete to build Hole 1's tee.

That tee will be filled with dirt before the gravel and concrete. Basically, the ties will be buried in dirt, the inside leveled off, and then gravel and concrete on top.

Must be a different one...the one that used to sleep back on #3 would just give you a really weird look if you said anything to her...she would also avoid eye contact at all means. This one also smelt bad and looked street hard.

Concrete pads at Cliff...now there's a novel idea.

She is still there as of late this morning, and there is a camp on 3 as well. Perhaps this woman stays down on 3 at night and then sleeps on 1 during the day? Or could it be two separate people? Heck, I don't know...
