My thanks go out to Josh, Wade, Grease, Ben the Boy Scout, Wes the Recreation Department Director, Chop, Brian Lang. They all pitched in at one point or another in the last month to make this work. The course is as beautiful as it has ever been.
We raised a whopping 200 bucks for the course---that's pretty good for 42 entries. Many folks contributed to the purchase/making of the fundraiser lunch, so if I miss anyone, please add their name: Chris Rickey, Vern, DD, Funky Bobby J., Josh, Clunck, Chop. Thanks to Chappy for having all the food warm and set up so we could eat, swim, and return rejuvenated for the second round. With some of the money I am buying a basket from Grease to install in place of number 9, which went missing in the week before the tournament. Otherwise, we are hoping to spend cash on concrete teepads--in order, numbers 7, 8, 13, 12, etc etc etc.
The next bit of work we will tackle will be cutting new #6 and new #7 (or possibly new 6, 7, and
. We'll have to get both done before we will be able to play either, as a number 7 is needed to get back near the rest of the course. (6 is a big downhill around the corner shot--most of you probably saw it flagged off on the walk between 5-6). When we finish those two, then we can concentrate on the area behind current 9 pin and 10 tee. 2 more holes will likely go in there.
