Work day tomorrow. Mat Stivers and I will be there working on a couple of the new holes if anyone cares to join us. We will be there hopefully starting around 10 am and working until about 2. The plan is to start on the new hole #9 coming up next to the road by the pavilion / horse shoe pits closest to the old practice basket / hole 1. We will then begin on the new hole out by the current hole 17....

Never been here before. The snow was over 1ft. deep in some areas. Played the first hole, then saw the second pad was cleared of snow, but couldnt see basket #2. I left after that. Bummer. Too much snow.

A big shout out to Mat Stivers, Brandon Redmond, Mike Walker, Ed, Jeff Bauman, Kevin Egnatoski, and Jake Rogers for their assistance this weekend at River Bends. Hole 12 is starting to take shape. We actually saw a few good shots today from the tee pad. We have a long way to go out here so more help in the future would be awesome...

Id like some votes...would anyone like to see another league on this side of town? If so, where at, what day of the week/weekend or early morning or glow rounds? A2 and kensington have quite a few people and with a $5 ace pool it grows fast and pays nicely! but those are a drive for most of us and id like to know if any others are as interested as i am to have more leagues for us all to enjoy. Please give feedback i might start one up!

We are looking for people to help move some of the debris we created while cutting the fairways on the new holes 11, 12, and 24. On Saturday we will be there around noon. I will be at Sunnybrook running Bobis so look for Mat Stivers. On Sunday I will be there around noon. Bring gloves and a good back!

There is a big push to move many baskets around in the city to make full courses with the same baskets. For instance, Firefighters is a mix of Chainstars and Mach's. Bends has 7 Innova, 7 Chainstars, and 10 Mach's. Raintree has 2 newer Mach's and 7 old single chain Mach's. I am in the midst of making a full blown inventory of what we have and what we will be moving around. I think River Bends will be complete with Innova baskets on the front 9 and all Mach's for the 18 hole layout. Raintree migh ... more

We would like to make all the single chain old Machs from Raintree as practice baskets at all of our local courses except Stony where we won't change any baskets. Its a bold move but in hopes of hosting a World Championship, this is a prerequisite...

this is awesome. thanks john, wish had better idea of the holes then looking at the map but Im sure there's plenty of wise judgement on the new layout. will there be any replacement baskets?

Spent about 4 hours at River Bends today cleaning up fallen trees on hole 2 and working on the new proposed hole 12.
A couple of things:
First, as the new layout gets finalized, if there are any suggestions, now would be a great time to say them.
Here's a glimpse of the proposal: http://www.discgolfscene.com/courses/River_Bends/Hole_1/50425
Secondly, when you all see trees that have fallen and you are out playing in your groups, feel free to take the initiative to move the remains out of the road. You don't have to wait for me to do it.
My back is a little old ;-) Just sayin'...

Thanksgiving Morning, Random Draw Doubles. $10 a person. About 10 am teeoff . Planning on playing the current 20 hole layout (Long Tees).
John Minicuci November 21, 2012 at 11:24am
We cleared the new path for Hole 15's new long tee pad yesterday. Thinking about going out there soon to resume finishing up that area and beginning to clear the path for the new holes 11 and 12. If anyone wants to head out there call my cell: 248 515-0350...

I am bummed out hole 9 was pulled. IMHO it was River Bends signature hole. Nice to see the short tee pads being built at Addy, even though I'll never use them. If MCCG ever sets up a paypal account for donations I'd pimp you a few bucks. I'm one of those folks that would rather give money than time.
