I had a meeting with the park superindendant today. Here are the minutes:
Summit DGA has $2000.00 to donate to the park system for course improvements.
We will donate the full 2k in one sum with full documentation.
The tee pads are on the top of the list. The nice sized donation coupled with our accumulated volunteer hours, the park system has agreed to do ALL of the work. The project is scheduled for the week of Aug. 6th. The guys plan on excavating tees on monday (8-6) and tuesday (8-7) then pouring pads on thursday and friday. Obviously weather dependant.
AWSOME NEWS Huh?
The guys at the park system will also be building us a nice message board that will be a modified version of the portage lakes kiosk.
The board should be built and installed before snow falls. Sometime in the fall.
Hines Hill Nine:
The property is in a holding pattern. The city now owns the property but have been running into problems with the city council and planning board. Two of the buildings are historical and it is a large piece of land with no decided use.
The basic finality is that we cannot remove the baskets until the city council has decided a use for the facility. We will get them, but when is the question.
We have permission to put nine more holes on the back side of the rear nine. the super has aggreed to a basket matching program. If we raise the money for 9 he will buy the other nine.
Lots of good things
WHEN THESE TEE PADS GO IN, WE AS A COMMUNITY NEED TO ENSURE THAT NONE OF THE DESTRUCTIVE KIDS OUT THERE DAMAGE THEM.
