I was unable to make this last workday due to prior commitments, but I was there for the one before that and no one showed up.  As I said before, it doesn't need to be a year long position.  It doesn't need to be in the mowing contract.  All we need is a pin placement back there (it may still be there and we just can't see it?) and I'll personally do all the mowing back there in preparation for the wide open (or any other tournament for which that pin is requested).  I know it's a pain in the rear to get back there with commercial equipment.  Hole 5 has just become sort of a dull hole that nearly every pro is going to birdie in its current placement.  I think the long placement would be a much harder shot for righty and lefty alike.

I think it would be great to have another setting there.  At the same time I see all the work that needs to be done on the current settings.  We could have a little meeting with Doug and Jim Kreeger to see if it is a possibility and, if so, the time frame.

Something could be done for a long placement for #5, but it would probably be next year. But, we could put in an additional setting for #11, #16, and #17 right now.

I moved a few baskets today.
#1 short                   
#2 only                         
#3 short                   
#4 only
#5 only
#6 long
#7 only
#8 short
#9 short
#10 only
#11 only
#12 only
#13 only
#14 only
#15 only
#16 only
#17 long
#18 short
 I set the course up so it can be shortened even further.
1. After playing #3 use the alt. pad for #4.
2. Use the alt. basket for #9.
3. Use the the alt. pad and throw to the #9 basket.
4. Use the alt. pad and throw to #11.
5. Use the alt. basket for #12.
6. Use the alt. pad and throw to to #13.

Hey Jack, what is your opinion on some new pin settings. I was thinking short/alternate placements for 2, 14, 17 and long placements for 15, and 16. I've talked to Jim and he is on board.

Oh yeah. I've been out the last few days picking up trash and pulling downed branches from the course. If we had a few more hands we could de-trash the rest of the course quickly. I know picking up trash isn't the most fun thing to do - but that is what the course needs right now. I'm talking with P&R about doing some larger projects for us (picking up decade old brush piles, backfilling teepads, taking out tree stumps, and tree trimming). If there is interest in going out there this Saturday for a few hours I would be available.

Doug, do me a favor and keep track of some of your time out there this year doing cleanup. We're working on developing a volunteer tracking tool and we want to log some of these hours.

There are two red baskets set out - they are at alternate 9 and alternate 12.
The park looks great, if you haven't been out in awhile - you should come check it out.
