You might be able to get park-grade shovels for cheap at the Recycle Center on Industrial in A.A. They gave me a nice price when I told them I was putting them out at HM a few years ago (I bought four or five). This time of year, they have a big selection.

Oh, and thanks for the idea Nancy, I believe it was that round I played with you and Joe that got me thinking about a "broom fund" happy that it happened so quickly!

We actually have put a lot of thought into shovels out on the course. The consensus is that is doesn't make financial sense to put one on every hole, since they would only be used a few times in the winter by just the die-hards that go out there to play. I think there is a reason no course (that I know of) has done shovels at every hole. If you are going to play in the snow, come prepared with a shovel for your group.

Additionally, the brooms will actually be nice for clearing the teepads of light snow, and the snow tracked on to the pads from boots.

So, anyone noticed the brooms out on the course now? thoughts?

Thanks again to all of the players of Union Strikes 2011, where we collected donations for the brooms to make it possible to have them installed.

Picnic course is in for those who don't know. Holes 13 and 14 are going to stay pulled during construction however. So it's hopefully going to be a good day for disc golf tomorrow.

Any chance there is ETA on when the Picnic Course is 100% in the the ground?

For those who don't know, the Picnic holes 13, 14, and 15 have been pulled before the controlled prairie burn. Don't know when it all goes back in.

Thanks Mike. I just figure some peoples kids don't get the luxury of good parenting....so they're not equipped to be good adults is all.

Best part is when trash is right next to the can. I guess some people can't be bothered to lift the lid. Thanks for cleaning up Nancy, I get mad too seeing my home course all trashed

found 5 discs yesterday on hole 5 and 17(?). the peach cheetah that said 'if you find this disc **** you' encouraged me to leave them all in the parking lot. there was a white boss, the cheetah, a yellow-ish champ destroyer that i think was an ace disc and 2 others. And to all the losers who keep leaving their garbage on the course.....CLEAN UP YOUR OWN DAMN MESS!!!!

Controlled burn coming up sometime soon on holes 1 and 18. This will really help with the leaves and undergrowth, so please be patient and avoid those holes if you see it, well, on fire basically. The park doesn't know exactly when it will happen as it is weather dependent. Thanks
