It's that time of year. There is some negative, I don't think me, personally, but I learned of some more negative news today. I've shared with some, & I only mention it because it's heavy on my heart. So.......some may know the hoops needed to jump through dealing with different parks. Channahon is not different, but I had joy today! There seems to be some disinterest for Channahon to care for the disc golf course. Well, I asked Slater if he would pick up some trees from Kendall Hill Nursery, Kathy Sharp, & we did, but only two. The short end is the park will pick up the balance, & without registration, plus plant them. Happy, Happy!
I'm doing this as a fund raiser for the J-town Ice Bowl. It's quite simple. It's a card with 10 lines that are blocked out. Put your name on a line, if the total score matches your line, you win!!! An example, Bears 27, Packers 20, the winning # would be 7. I hope we can raise $10,000.00 this year. It gives you a chance to win something & help with the fund raiser. It's $10.00 a line, half goes to the winner & half to the fund raiser.
I've been thinking about a basket circle around #13. Like #8 & #16. It's grunt work, digging it out & replacing & it with gravel. I don't have a time frame, so let me know if you can help. My guess would be about 4 hrs. & we need to do it on a week day, so we can use a cart.
That's Chris McCabe & Aaron Studer. I'm humbled, thanks you guys!!! I want to add Jesse donated the fund raiser from the Clsaaic, & Mick from the winter league. I don't post the total amount, but to give a couple of expenses, wood chips from Homer Tree Service, $300.00, red wood chips, 50 + bags, $175.00. It's usually around $1,500.00. One year it was $4,400.00. I sold some property & dumped some of it into the park. Thanks you guys, it's Awesome!!!
I'm going through some things, & have some old newspapers with headlines. If you save headlines it might be of interest. Example, Ditka firing, Iraq bombing, 2005 White Sox, (0ne exception) I think 8 or nine. If you save that sort of thing, you may be interested. Actually, I kind of forgot, but the message is, if you collect that stuff, it's yours. The exception is, 2005, Chicago Tribune, BELIEVE It!!! What a Great Year for the White Sox Fans!!!
On hole #1 the basket has flags numbered 6,12,18. Each pennant has a different weight. The higher the # the heavier the pennant. Although it doesn't work well, the idea is to rate the mph. Low #, light wind, all three, strong wind.
I can use a hand, mostly spreading wood chips, getting Channahon ready for the Classic. The Park lets me use the cart, so it would be working hrs. 8:00am to 3pm. Other things I'd like to do is a gravel circle around #13's basket, tune up the gravel in front of some of the tees. Let me know.
