When are you going out to play, I could meet you out there.

So will you be joining me?  Is anyone joining me?  Who is coming out for the workday?!

Yes, I will be out there at 7:30 or a little before. If we picked up trash as we played - it would sure help the course a lot (the course is a little trashy as of late) I would also like to do some minor tree manicuring as we play, so bring a set of loppers.

If anybody wanted to put some time in at BV this week let me know. I am waiting till P&R mows and then I am going to hit some of the trees that they miss with the weed eater on Thurs-Fri. BV could use a little help for the WO - you could be that help!

I will be having a workday on July 12th at 9:00 a.m. We will be resetting short #6 and short #17, and also (possibly) be installing a new setting in the other end of  #11's valley. Some of the short baskets will be reinstalled at this time also. Oh yeah, I think #1 has a bent setting that needs to be dug out if we have the time/man power. Please plan on coming to help as these modifications will allow me to shorten the course and make it more playable/enjoyable during these hot summer months.

Frustration has started to set in. Nobody showed up to help, again. Here goes a little rant. We are all playing a game for free - in comparison our ball golf friends are paying at least $40 per outing to play the same game. If every one of our club members put in two hours a month at a workday our courses would be perfect.
I am a little POed right now. Some POS stole all of the plants and prairie grass that I planted in the planters at the parking lot last month.
O.K. rant over.
I dug up the bent setting on #1 and #17, and dug up and straightened short #6. Short #17 needs to be reset and I would like to put a new placement in the valley of #13. Can anybody help me?

Doug,

I am on full force at Cliff Right now, I will try to help after next month or so.  Is there anything that I can try to do in the evening to help out?

I am trying to move earth and holes and extreme trash removal at Cliff for the next holes, so I may be limited, but want to help where I can.

Don't get too frustrated, we had 8 of us at Cliff so that may have stolen from the work efforts you are doing as well.

Also....FWIW, everyone that showed up to help at Cliff Drive was a direct result of my text messages to them on Friday.  Not one person came because of the forum.......maybe some came because of the FB postings as well, but over saturation of the event is needed to attract folks.

I get it and understand way to much where you are coming from.

Hey Jack, something you possibly could help with is getting a new #13 for the top of 13's tee sign and new maps for ALL of the signs.
BTW, the majority of my frustration was due to the thievery of the plants, it really bothered me.

I get that.  I would hit up Dan on that as well for the signage as well as updated information.  I mentioned this to him as well.

For future reference.....planting the plants in late october has been a much better plan, this unfortunately isn't the first time that plants were stolen out of there, who would have thought....I mean really....

I haven't given up on those planters - at least they looked good for the Wide Open. Jack, do you know the deal with the pin placement for #10 that is kind of in #1's fairway? It looks like a worthless placement and I would like to dig it up.

I don't know about that.  I know we used it in an old location when we teed from the shelter house back to it for events, it was one of the first pins.  I would say it is probably ok to yank, but I would ask Jim to be certain.....
