WEEK 8 - May 28, 2014
First Half #8
Community Park, Channahon, IL

18 Holes - Short Tees - Par 54
The night started out with clear skies with a storm trying to make it’s way into the area. The temperature was around 73 degrees with NE winds at around 11 mph. By the end of the night the temps dropped into the low 60s and the winds picked up with gusts around 16-20 mph. The course is in great shape and looking beautiful as usually. Mosquitoes are out but the winds kept the biting numbers down. It was a perfect night for disc golf

• Sorry for no report last week. I was in Arkansas on vacation. Thanks to Mick McGowan for stepping in and helping Old Man Johnson.

• Within a couple of weeks we will be working on getting the course ready for IL State. We could use all the help possible. I will keep you posted.

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."
