What time will the ropes be up today and do you guys need any help getting them up?

We're starting at around 2:30 today.  We have a small crew lined up but obviously wouldn't refuse any additional help.

Online registration closes at 4pm today.

I plan on signing up tomorrow for intermediate,  but if the Advanced field is bigger will I be able to change divisions the day of the tourney?

Sure, we can do that.  Just let us know when you sign in Saturday morning.

For anyone that goes out to work on these projects, please post the following:

What number from the list you worked on and the status of that line item (so we know what still needs done).  I'll keep the list updated.

For J-Town members, post the number of hours worked so I can give you credit in our Member Reward Program.

Have you ever wanted to play the USDGC but couldn’t get an invite?  Have you ever wanted to play Winthrop Gold or at least a similarly set up course but don’t want to travel all the way to SC?  Here’s your chance.  We’ve re-designed Mokena’s 27 hole course into 18 holes, added 2 temporary holes and laid out over 6800 feet of rope.  The result, a 20 hole, 8792 foot, par 69 challenge.  In addition, we are going to determine who will represent IL in this year’s USDGC Performance Flight.

From Facebook (5/27 Sean Callahan):

"Ok its been a couple crazy weeks but we are hitting The Canyons at Dellwood Park really hard this week. We will need volunteers this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We are auggering the holes for the sleeves and installing sleeves on Friday. Steve Matul (008) will be out there leading the whole thing and needs as many hands on deck as possible. We will need people to haul away the spoil from the augger on Thursday and help with moving concrete where ever necessary on Friday. I would like to get as many volunteers on Saturday as well, we have many other things to do. I will be out there as soon as Im done with work both days as well. Let me know if you can help out. Thanks!"

"7:30am through the afternoon. Til we're through."

The creek is almost full but there is minimal ponding in the fairways.  The fairways next to the creek have not been mowed, however, so its a bit like a jungle out there.  The tee pads are pretty sloppy. 

We skipped holes 2-5, 11, and 16 at handicaps last night.
