Down Under Work Day
« on: September 11, 2011, 05:24:34 PM »
Hello friendly club members, all of whom love to play the Down Under course at Rosedale...

I would like to coordinate a work day for ol' D.U.  There are some trees that fell in the fairway that I think we could get rid of.   I do not own any equipment for this, but I have plenty of determination and a little bit of time.   Does anyone with chainsaws and what not want to come help me clear the fallen trees? 

My schedule is fairly open in the morning, especially the early morning.  I am willing to meet up on weekends too.   I really want to take care of this - but I need help.

Reply with times/dates that work.   And please include any equipment you may have.

Best,
Ryan

The club has some equipment you could possibly use.  I don't know about chainsaws though.

It will take chainsaws - I'm nearly certain.  Chainsaws or giants.   Do we have any giants? 

What does the club have that I may use?  Any type of saw?  If it takes me 3 weeks, I'll saw the hell out of a tree.

i just recently got a new saw that is the real deal.  Maybe we can cut this week after work when it is cooler outside and then you can organize some fellas to come at a later date and strategically place them for erosion control etc.

Sounds great, John.   My Thursday evening is booked, but I'm sure I can work down there any other night this week.

If any other able-bodied disc golfers want to lend a hand (and an arm, and some legs, etc), John Theiss, Tim Becks, and I will be at Rosey at 4:45 PM TOMORROW Sept. 13th.   We're planning on heading down under via Up Top's #2 tee pad.   

I'll also bring a couple dozen Parks and Rec garbage bags.   So if it looks like there are too many cooks in the "cut-the-tree kitchen", feel free to come by and drag a bit of garbage out of down under.

I'd like to extend my thanks to John Theiss, Jon Robertson and Tim Becks for all of their hard work tonight.   Theiss - that chainsaw was awesome!  We were able to clear the most of the tree trunk from #3 and much of the debris.  IT WAS HEAVY.    We tried to set it up in a way that might help some of the erosion problems.   Likewise, we quickly disposed of the tree that fell on #14.   

I think we took 2 bags of bottles up, and we also gave a threesome a garbage bag.  They surprised us and took up a full bag of garbage from #17 and #18!   

Spread the love and gain some karma; take out some garbage.  Guaranteed to knock 3 strokes off your game.
