05-07-12 PC MINI
« on: May 08, 2012, 10:59:29 AM »
Eighteen playas out for a mild, breezy eve of dg. Sunny, temps around 71, and winds from the NE at 13 is how it was.

OPEN (18)

Tom Butler             50 for $17
Anthony Pfeifer      51 for $11
Cooper Arnold       53 for $9
Bryan Guthrie        55 for $4.50
Dan Quinn             55 for $4.50
Brian Corneilius     55 for $4.50
Leevarn Sarvis      55 for $4.50
Mike Davis             56
Brian Taylor           56
Mark Albers           57
Travis Daetwiler    59
Dan Howard          60
Bill Hecht               61
Dan Zinc                61
Dan Leweke          62
Jeff Ozorkiewicz    63
Eric Sears              64
Greg Seher           69

No ACE hit, so with 17 getting in the fund increases to $617. As the Summer approaches, look for more challenging pin placements in the next few weeks so a grandmaster doesn't have the short course advantage.....  ;)

Something really needs to be done about the poison ivy on 13...

doesn't really make it appealing to play if even the fairway is covered with the stuff and good shots don't prevent you from getting it.

Isn't there something the city could spray to kill that stuff?

I doubt that is the case...

and, even if it were, CD is 20 miles further from home than PC.

Most of the time cities will not bring in eradication of ivy, but you may be able to conduct a workday with herbicides to help defray it.

How 'bout some more clearing of 13 while we're eradicating the poison ivy?  Or what about a second pin placement?   8)

 The City responded to me concerning Poison Ivy. They siad they will try to kill some of it.
 
 We can/will put in an additional pin(s) on 13. It may be a little later in the year because cutting in fairways in hot, wet, humid, tick infested conditions is a task best suited for after a freeze or two. At some point this Summer though, I would like to get everyone out for a workday with weedeaters and clear out the corner of the pond, and an earlier landing zone along the pond so the pond placement isn't so harsh to those who don't want to risk going over the water.

Thanks Tom!

It is one thing when you kind of deserve it and are in the woods but it is something entirely different when it literally fills the fairway and you MUST play through it.

The City just informed me they will be spraying for ivy eradication today on 12, 13, and 14, and will be monitoring it this Summer to try to get it dead, dead, dead.  8)
