Meet with the park people today and recieved some good news- They are offering 3 chunks of land that fit our criteria as possible locations for the big boy course...decisions, decisions, decisions!
I brought up the idea that any designers from the club want might want to take a stab at designing the could look at the photos of the land when they are available, visit the land with me as your tour guide, then submit design proposals based on that. They liked the concept and understand that we must use a designer and not try to go at this alone.
The winning designer would be compensated and would work with me and the Clay Co Park people in bringing this course into fruition.
Some of the land I wanted is in crop lease until 2011 and 2012 but they think they can do some trading with the farmers...take this 40 acres here and give them another 40 somewhere else.
Interested parties should PM me and we will set up a time to meet at the land, go over the photos and turn you loose on your proposals.
Timelime for your initial proposal would need to be close to Dec 15th to Dec 31, 2009 as possible. I need to have things semi-finalized for our proposal to the Park Board sometime in early January.
