PC and Birdland workdays
« on: August 15, 2013, 06:57:36 AM »
This coming Sunday (8-18-13) we will be doing some volunteer work at Birdand, and possibly at PC as well.

If you have a weedeater, machete, chainsaw, loppers, or some napalm, bring em. Gloves are a good idea as well as large amounts of deet and agent orange.

I'll be working on hole 4 at Bird, starting around 10:30. I want to get the trail redefined on the right. Depending on the crew size and weaponry, we may tackle another task or two while there. We'll play it by ear, but I'd like to migrate to hole 15 at PC after an hour or two at Bird and spend and hour or two getting the pond all mowed and trimmed up.

I met with the City last night and toured both courses. As usual, they were receptive to helping out with more fine tuning of the mow. The extreme rough between fairways on the back nine will be mowed down to 1' prior to Old Settlers. We should also have wood chips delivered to hole 4 at Bird and hole 15 at PC, which we will spread. Depending on the weather, the City will try to re-chip all the tees at PC as well.

Watch this thread for updates, and announced plans for semi-organized work sessions over the next two weeks.  8)

If you have some free time over the next two weeks, and want to go out on your own, just call me, message me on here, or email me, and I can aim you in the direction of greatest need.

You heard the man. So come on out to birdland sunday or come on out to pc @ 10-10:30 on friday and bring a weedeater. We'll nicen up 15(pond shot) and then play some ftl.  If you get this, Brian C, your weedeater with the pro cutta tip would be choice.

Some observations from playing PC last night.  Hole #11 could use some trimming around the opening in the woods to the pin.

I know it's wishful thinking but removing that tree to the left right off the tee for #13 would sure open that hole up somewhat.  It
wouldn't necessarily make it easier to play but that fairway off the tee is much too tight.  Just my honest opinion.

I'll be at PC hole 15 between 8:00 and noon this morning moving mulch and mowing. Come join the party.  ;D

It's funny, I asked for 9 or 10 cubic yards at Birdland, hole 4, and the City dumped approximately 25 yards. I asked for 4 or 5 yards at PC hole 15, and it looks like they dumped around 15 yards.

Probably too many numbers.

Put some more torque on it kid!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nYm-LYrJQA

We finished moving the mulch and leveling it out at both courses.

The last things that would be nice to have done this week are:

a weedwhacking to expand hole PC hole 15 green to the north, 5' or so and another mow or weedwhack of the entire pond beach. Also at PC, as much weedeating as possible around the left pin  hole 13 would be great.

weedeat around all pins, 3' all around at Bird, mow the hillside slope on hole 11 and to the east as much as possible.

I'm about worked out myself.  :)
