workday
« on: November 15, 2011, 08:01:20 AM »
This saturday, 11-19-11, we plan on spending a few hours cutting/trimming some trees, de-thorning some trees, and setting a pin for a new placement on hole 13. If you can help we will be there around 9:00. Bring thick gloves, and a chainsaw of you have one.

Thick gloves are a good idea. We'll be out there at 9:00.

Bring your wheelbarrows and concrete mixing tools....and shovels to dig out an old pin and long ropes to pull trees out of the crap with trucks....save your hands...

If we have enough help, we can place 2 pins before it's time to head for DU league!!!

 A big thanks to everyone that came out to help develop a few more acres of unused land into a lengthened and tougher hole 13.  8)

 Andy Lewis and Mike Davis put in an entire day Friday. When they left Friday evening there were two new sleeves in the ground. One has a very nice raised, circular bed built from retaining wall stones around it. It measures 520' from the tee box. I'll try to go take a few pics and post em later today.

 A big cast of characters came out Saturday morning for more clearing, raking, and tree de-thorning.

 The list of workers on Saturday includes:

Brian Taylor
Brian Cornielius
Thomas Pope
Dan Quinn
Dan Zink
Mark Albers
Cade Garrelts
Jeff Ozorkiviecz
Andy Lewis
Mike Davis
Deano

 I apologize if I left anyone off.

 After the work, around 11:45, Cindy showed up with an abundant stack of hot pizza and big box of icy cold beverages. Six of us played a round of dubs in the awesome 70 degree weather, where only one of the three teams completed the new long 13 in less than 4 shots.

Yeah it does. Did you guys basically extend the hole farther into the corner, past the fence?

It isn't so much the corner as it is almost straight off the tee, maybe a little left.

The easiest approach to the long pin, in my opinion, is to throw out in the open in front of the brush pile (towards hole 14's tee box) and then spike hyzer to the basket.  If you just throw down to the opening that is cleared by the hedge trees, it's a nasty anhyzer route to the basket.
