Mr. David Taylor met with the Mayor and Council of Rising Sun last night. He believes they had a good meeting and there was a lot of interest expressed by the town to see and experience the course this weekend. He promised to report back to the Mayor/Council and the Cecil Whig (local newspaper) with the date and time of our arrival. With that said, I’ve had about a 50/50 split between Saturday and Sunday.
At this point, I’m going to decide to stick with Saturday. We’ll be arriving at approximately 10 AM. I apologize that this will exclude a few folks, but Sunday would do the same. Just because you can’t attend doesn’t mean that you cannot help. If you have a basket that you are willing to let us borrow, please let one of us know. We can come to your residence pick it up and return it to you sometime next week. If Rising Sun approves the course, they’re probably going to need manpower to put the course in. So we may have more opportunities to help them out.
The course is located in pretty much downtown Rising Sun. David Taylor told me to head north on Rt 1, veer right onto 273 when nearing Rising Sun. Head straight on 273 into Rising Sun, then turn right onto Wilson Street (Citgo gas station on left). He said head down Wilson Street about 1/4 mile and the park is on the left. Park at the pavilion and Tee 1 will be right by it. He’ll meet us at the pavilion. On Google Maps, the park is called Stubbs Hill Regional Park, but Mr. Taylor told me it’s called Rising Sun Veterans Park.
Once finished at Rising Sun, I’m still going to proceed to French Creek, and Dave Dietz said he’d join me. I’ll have seats open in my ride, so who else wants to join me?
Here’s a list of people who already confirmed they could attend on Saturday:
Don Simonetti (probably coming late)
Let’s meet at the Wawa at the intersection of 136 and Rt 1 north (just a few miles up the road from Scarboro Hills). Please arrive no later than 9:30. From there, we can figure out who can drive and carpool. I’m pumped; this is a great opportunity for our upstart club. Let’s help more people learn how to chuck some ‘bees and enjoy the game we that we love
