Bridges...we dont need no stinking bridges!

Uppp, hold on...YES WE DO!

And I think I just found me some!!!


A real nice 20' x 4' (needs wood decking or concrete panels)





A reeeeeaaaal long 51.5" x 425" bridge! (That's over 35 feet long!!!)








A 4' x 16' with hand rails!




He said we would "talk about the possibility" of getting these. They seemed to think that culverts were an option too!

Seems the concrete treads were glued to the walkways...makes for super easy installation.

If we use this stuff, wonder if we utilize the floats on bottom and make it a raising bridge or bolt them to concrete piers?

Thoughts anyone?

Or, Dick's suggestion from a while back- 10 foot diameter circles.  :)

Little birdie told me you're gonna see some 10 foot diameter circles...on one of the courses anyway!

When I get on a different shift I'll be able to attend these types of functions. I see my basket made it out there, at least! ;D

Back to the Course Designer thread.  Do we have a winner and are they getting compensated as a proffesional course designer or are they scabbing it in.  I think with all the hard work they did according to this thread, they should deserve some monetary compensation.  I think Cooper had posted what a course designer usually gets. 

How are the plans coming along Dan?

The "ALMOST THERE MEETING" got called off last night due to weather concerns. This was the next to last meeting with the Clay County Park Board. We are waiting for a makeup date and we hope that will be soon. The laptop is loaded with all the goodies and we are 120% ready to give that presentation.

The "FINAL MEETING" will be in front of the elected Clay County Officials at the Courthouse.

Staying mum on the rest of the deal until we get the final apporvals. (but yes, the winning designers will be compensated)

Thanks for your interest in the process...it's been a long ride and I am happy to report that everyone apprears to be onboard and now it's just a matter of a couple crucial approval steps.

Well answered.

I don't think you can say there is a fee that a course designer "usually" gets.  They all get paid differently and different by the job.  Highly reputed designers sometimes earn a semi-respectable wage for their efforts.

For sure, just think that the two guys that put there designs in put alot of time and thought into these courses.  Probably more than most course designers since they are local designers and don't have a time crunch.
