not to incite a riot, but as far as I'm concerned, john is the de facto greenskeeper at the moment.  it's too bad his enthusiasm is so bridled.

I think it would be a good idea if all requests from parks went through the course greens keeper. It might also be a good idea for the work parties to be coordinated and supervised by the greens keeper.

 

Unfortunately, the new t-pad on 2 has been vandalized and although the new bricks in front of the t-pads may be a good idea, some of them are uneven and pose a trip hazard. I think it would be a good idea if the bricks were below the level of the front of the t-pad.

At least enough to call back when they've said they'll do something and that something isn't happening--for whatever reason.

See one of those, give me a call.

The new double mound placement has a problem with tires not quite covered by soil.

It needs a couple of yards of something to cover. I have a call in to Steve McGettigan but am not getting the courtesy of a return call as of this posting.

I did check out soil prices at the Tack Room yesterday and they run about $20-26 per cubic yard, depending on the richness of the material.

I would like to get something out there in time for Tuesday's pin installation. Does anyone within the sound of this email object to dropping $40-50 to get the new placement covered so tires aren't exposed?

All in favor? Opposed?

Thanks,

Soil & mulch underlayer set for Saturday

John W. Ross <johnr414@...>
 

Don't know how much, but I've asked for and received a dose of hog fuel for underneath plus some random soil from an excavation that doesn't have a home that should provide a topping.

The club can build it up with a (Cu. Yard) layer of fertile mix at $26 or we can just chip heck out of what ever we can get spread.

Hands with shovels should be in demand starting Saturday afternoon. I'll keep folks posted on what arrives and progress in spreading and covering it.

JohnR


Re: soil and tires

John W. Ross <johnr414@...>
 

Steve says he's got soil and can turn loose of hog fuel in the range of 2-3 cubic yards.

That should do us.

We may be able to horse the few tires in direct view out, or should be able to safely cover them.

What's your concern? Concerns?

After the flabbergasting gets over.

John,

I would be flabergasted if Corvallis Parks would allow you to cover over
tires with soil.

I would wait until you have communication from CPR before moving forward -
or yard the tires out - every tire you see - and not one inch deeper,
before adding soil.

The other person to try and contact would be David Phillips
david.phillips@...
who is the main WDGC contact - McGettigan is the volunteer coordinator but
not the specific WDGC contact point - and working with Greg Alpert would
also be politic.

Good luck - keep moving - it's harder for them to aim....

In order to contact Steve you may need to go through the Willamette Disc Golf Course greens keeper. I believe the parks department prefers to have one contact from the club.

I certainly second the motion.  if I'm out there clearing that mound again next year (for the third time), "HEADS WILL ROLL!" 

Aw shucks, you know I'm a big softy.  But I AM excited about this new placement.  I think you guys are going to like it. (kc will find something crappy about it, but thats why we love him.)

Thanks for keeping the momentum going out there, John.  I'm off now until mon., so let me know when the dirt is ready and we'll build  us a mountain! yeehaw.
