The WyCo workday this past Saturday was a huge success. We had a total of nine official workers including myself.
Thanks to Bryan Guthrie, Sean Gibson, Mike Penney, Jeff Campbell, Greg Neu, Christian Mann, Dirk Hacker and my son-in-law Chris Bergen. Special thanks to Bryan for showing up early and putting forth extra effort in dragging brush and to Mike Penney for keeping me company as we baby-sat the fire well after dark to make sure it was safe to leave.
Also, special thanks to the group of five that played through early on and stopped to drag brush for a few minutes. It's great to see folks out playing that will pause to help out even for a short time. Every little bit helps.
The fire grew quite large and the weather cooperated perfectly. The brush pile on #17 is now less than half the size it was when we started. Major trimming was done on #7 and all of the brush from that was burned as well. The new basket is in place and the practice basket is back. We will have to deal with a bare spot in #17 fairway for a while due to the location of the fire but it was worth it. Some grass seed and a little rain and it shouldn't take long to green back up.
I hope to see a great group out there this Friday and Saturday for League and Kan-U-WyCo. The long range forecast is calling for beautiful weather both days.
