We will have the chipper out there this Friday 7/10, from 8am-4pm. If you can help please do.
We will have some tools to use but more is always better. Tools needed for this phase: Shovels, saws, hand trimmers, buckets, rakes, wheelbarrows/carts.
Phase 1 update!
The staging areas have been set. We feel these areas are localized enough to accommodate clean-up from any hole. They will also allow easy access for the trucks and chipper.
Area 1- Between the tee pad of 10 and 17.
Area 2- Between the basket of 3 and the tee pad of 4. (top of snake road)
Area 3- The bottom of snake road
Area 4- The path between the basket for 18 and tee for 1.
We have also taken some time to clear snake road. This will allow us a easy path to move things through the park. We are still on target for having the course at least clear for First Flight.
Tomorrow, Thursday May 7th, there will be a small group of us meeting at 8 am. We are planning on working till roughly noon and then playing around after. If your available to help feel free to show up and hang out. We will have water and snacks for those helping out. Although we will have some extra supplies (Saws, carts, rope, clippers) extra never hurts. With First Flight come up quickly we are going to be out there more often, so there is plenty of opportunities left to help out. DISC GOLF!
This summer, there is a ground clearing project starting at Highland park. The main goal is to clear all the downed trees and limbs that can potentially be hazardous and damaging to the course. Mike Flynn has stepped up and laid out a plan. His plan will successfully clean up the course and recycle the cleared debris back into the course. This plan has 3 main phases:
1-Rounding up and piling up all the trees and limbs.
This will be done over the next couple of months. You will see wood piles starting to form in some key locations. Feel free to add to them if you have some free time.
2-Renting a wood-chipper.
The budget for renting a large chipper has already been approved. We will need at least 2 trucks and a bunch of strong backs. We will move the chipper to the staged piles and begin chipping them down and spreading them on the course.
Although the chipping will only be 1 or 2 days, the piles of wood-chips left may take longer to move around. Also the bigger logs will need to be moved to more useful places.
If you have any thoughts or ideas, or would like to volunteer to help with this project please let me know. With such a vast undertaking, any and all help is appreciated. DISC GOLF!
Howdy all. The start time has been moved up to 7 am. This should let those who want to, help and attend tags. With the current course conditions we will be focusing on course clearing. There are dozens of big branches all over the course, along with some downed trees. Hand saws, carts, sleds and ropes will still be needed.
There will be a group of us meeting up at Highland Park on Feb 21, from 7am-noon, to start the clean up efforts for First Flight. Sign in will be by hole one.
This is a weather permitting event. We will update with more info as needed.
Current to do list
-Remove downed trees
-Trash bags (Jeff K, Shawn M)
-Hand Saws (Jeff K.)
-Power Saws (Kevin M)
-Any volunteer that donates at least 2 hours of their time will be entered into a drawing for a free entry into the Prodigy Par 2 at Trinity event that day hosted by Dana Vicich. We will draw the name at 12.
-This event will qualify for the J-Town members reward program.
Tomorrow morning (10/27), I'm meeting Frank out at Trinity around 9 am. We are going to finish up the project on basket 18. Then I would like to work on emptying the over flowing garbage cans. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
