there are things that I like and dislike about both layouts to date. There will probably be things that I like and dislike about the final chosen layout. What are we trying to accomplish here? Are we to find the most popular layout, then discuss variations on that layout? Or are we identifyling ... more

We had a meeting a few weeks ago and arrived at this as the best way we could think of to try out different ideas. If no particular layout is favored by consensus, we will seek consensus on particular holes and then see what holes from other layouts can be made to work with them. It could require a bit of negotiation, but I think we'll arrive at something good.

trying to find a map to mock up and submit

I just sent you my e-mail through a private message.

I can also shed some light on the plan. The "negotiation" Jon speaks of will take place in our standard meeting location (Manhattan Pub. Library) after all layouts have been displayed on-site. This meeting date has not yet been set, but all DFOK players will be encouraged to attend. I can ... more

In addition to designing this expansion, weu2019re also going to need to raise some fund$ for this project, plus have a few work days to help Riley Co. with construction/clean-up needsu2026 Stay tuned for more detailed information.

Dimond, Glad you chimed in on the Fairmont Park project. It would be great if you have time to put together a design (or help in any way).

Dimond Cutter   February 8, 2013 at 4:37pm

Yeah it is pretty cool seeing this take shape! Do you have a map of the first layout? Unfortunately, I can't remember most of it. I just did a design but I am going to go to Fairmont this evening to tweak it before I submit it.

Dimond, If you plan to get involved to the level of creating a layout & reserving a week, we need to get you hooked up with our DFOK Planning Google Group. That's where the heavy duty planning & documents are being posted. Plus, you will want to attend the our DFOK meeting when we summarize all proposed layouts, then create our hybrid layout (Hint to Jon).
