WORK DAY - SAT 1/29/2011

Postby keith johnson » Fri Jan 28, 2011 12:25 am

MULCH SPREADING work day this Saturday starting at 9AM.

Bring wheelbarrows if you have them along with shovels, leaf rakes, and gloves if you wish to help out.

You can park in the parking lot near #10 basket and we will send people out in groups of 2 to the holes that need work. The park has started today puitting mulch out and will add more on FRIDAY - as every hole but #2 and #16 need mulch somewhere mostly around the tee areas or in the low lying parts of the fairways.

Any help would be appreciated, but please keep in mind that there will be junior players on the course at times playing 1 round of golf, as well as the horse show and people all around the stables - so please be on your best behaviors!

Thanks,
Keith

HUGE Thanks to Lorelei, (THURS and FRI) Dan Moore and Chris Foley (TODAY) for their help on Mulch and rock spreading days.

The course is starting to shape up nicely - Hole 13 is no longer a mud bog, Tee pads on Holes 1, 5, and 9 tees have nice rock around them for cleanliness and drainage. The paths between 12-13 and 13-14 are mulched, there is a path from the practice basket to Tee #1 mulched as well as the fairways for #1,3, 9 and 13.
Tomorrow in the early AM I'll attack holes 8 and 17.

The park will be putting more mulch in other areas during the next week also.

As most of you know, I'm also a stats guy - here are some interesting stats for today at Wills.
117 individual players(throwing discs) and 129 total people passed by Hole 13 between 10AM and 4:30PM while it was being worked on 10-noon by Chris and myself, 12-2 by Dan(who also spread mulch solo on 3 and 9 before helping on 13) and myself, and then until 4:30 by myself.
26 of them were at Wills for the first time ever (including a couple from Colorado who read about it on DGCR),and over 50 were there for first time or first time in years.
32 of the players were WOMEN or girls.
4 people passed by playing 2-3 times.
ALL of the people that had played in the past 2 weeks were amazed at how 13 looked now compared to when they saw it last, as well as the rest of the course.

Most everyone thanked all the people that have had anything to do with helping shape the park up.

I'm still looking forward to when I get to play my 2nd round there. :shock:

It looks great, and there are probably about 100 players on the course right now. :o

Also I just played the round of my life this afternoon at Wills. You may want to have me pay up and play Intermediate at the tournament on the 12th. :?
