Willamette Disc Golf Club Meeting
Mar 6th, 2017. 6:00 PM
Woodstocks Pizza, Kings Rd, Corvallis.
Present: Bob Burton, Kelly Christiansen, Bryce Downey, Billie Gaskill, Greg Johnson, Mike Storrs, (Presiding).
Treasurer (Greg). Current balance $2800.
Invitational (Greg) Greg announces that April 29th is the day for the annual Club tournament out at Blodgett. He and Mckenzy have done a lot of work on holes 1-9 to clear out down trees from this winter’s weather. So the course is shaping up.
Adair Greenskeeper(no report)
Willamette Greenskeeper(Mike) Mike has talked to Greg Alpert about the pending plans for new concrete tee-pads. We are thinking of enlarging from 4x10 feet to 5x12. The change to brushed concrete will also enhance safety (from slippage). Club discussed whether to try to do batches of 6 teepads at a time vs doing all 18 in one heroic effort; sentiment at this small meeting was for batching.
A new course in Corvallis? Bryce would like to see a course up on undeveloped park land on Witham Hill between Circle and Harrison (Witham Hill Natural Area). Also mentioned was MLK Park which has considerable land that is unused. Mike will contact Jay Sexton about sounding out the City Parks; Billie Gaskill and Richard Hervey were mentioned as strong allies in dealing with City Council when it might hypothetically come up for a decision.
Other Business: (Kelly) Mar 16 at 6 PM Whistler’s doubles online registration opens. This popular tournament fills up very fast! Actual tournament will be June 24-26.
Note next month’s meeting will begin at 7PM.
Respectfully submitted, Bob Burton, secy.
