We could really use some help with tree cutting and trimming.  The parks and rec have done an excellent job carving the holes out of thick overgrown woods.  Now is the time for disc golfers to put the final touches on the holes.  I will be out this Saturday, Oct 31 at 10 am and would love to have some help.  I have a hole by hole itinerary of what needs to be done.  I will also be out there working this Friday, Oct 30th at noon.   Please bring your own chainsaw. 

Thank,
John Theiss

If you'll change the word "itinerary" to "plan", it might make me feel like this is something I can help out with... :D

John, gimme a call Saturday morning. I won't be off work until 6:30 that morning, but I will try to help. Also, Little Dave has a couple 4-wheelers now and is always looking for a reason to use them. If you think they might be of use, lemme know...

john theiss:
sounds good.  my plan involves you using power tools without adult supervision.  anyone else want to use some power tools?    ;D

john theiss:
Met with the number one and number two from the parks and rec this morning and the walk through went well.  If i could get some folks to come out and lend a hand tomorrow, that would help out the parks and rec tremendously.  All we got to do is cut and pull debris out and they will haul it away next Monday and Tuesday.  It is important to get the cutting done this weekend because next week they want to start the tilling and seeding.  If we get those few areas knocked out this weekend, that allows the workers a day or two to collect and haul the brush out wth the skid and grappler attachment.  I put in a full day of work today and got a ton done.  It would be nice to have some help tomorrow.  Please bring a chainsaw and some gloves. 

YOUNG PARK 10 AM WORKDAY- WORK DAYS MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD.  COME OUT AND GIVE BACK!  I WANT SOME OF THOSE EASTERN JACKSON COUNTY FOLKS TO BE THERE SINCE THIS MIGHT BE THE NEXT CLOSEST COURSE BESIDES SWOPE OR MAYBE YOUR SOON TO BE HOME COURSE!

Three days and 20 hours later,  all of the holes are appearing to be playable after much tree trimming and clearing.  Still a few tall branches left that the parks and rec will have to get by getting up in the bucket of the skid and using a  pole saw.  We went through two chains from all the hedge that was being cut. 

Bryan Harrelson brought out his big boy chainsaw and we  dropped a couple big trees on hole 16.  This cutting helped the hole tremendously by offering a better second route.  I could not have done that work by myself and i really appreciate all the help from Bryan and  Tony "exminnasotaboy".  After opening up some areas, a few basket locations were moved and the hole has been changed for the better.

It was a good weekend of hard work and i want to thank Bryan and Tony for giving up their time.  Thanks for giving back! 

John
