Title: Tees for Ice Bowl
Post by: Frankie on January 28, 2011, 10:12:41 PM
As some of you know we're having a fundraiser, Ice Bowl 02/05/11. What I think most if not all would agree, is to have footing from the tees. At these warmer temperatures & play on the tees. the footprints turn to ice. The tees  are going to be cleaned, as needed for our Ice Bowl on a regular basis. The short story is Shawn Harmon, Flash, John Marron, let me help on 1 tee.
Thanks fellas!
There is snow in the forcast this week, & I may need help with the tees, let me know if you can help. It may or may not be needed. From experience, I can count on me.

Jason Poole offered to help on the tee Thursday. The plan is to get out there a little after 2:00 pm. I'm hearing different amounts of snow accumulation. We may have our hands full. More help will be appreciated.

That's Great Mike! I need to ask Shawn Harmon, he doesn't read the message board. It looks like we are going to need a lot of help. The forcast I read is 1"-3" tonight, 2"-4" tomorrow & 10"-15"  tomorrow night.  That's a max. of 22" & a min. of 13".

I'm meeting Shawn Harmon at noon tomorrow. I'm sure the pavilion is going to need some work also, besides the tees. Mike & Jacob around 1:00pm Jason Poole said he'd be there a little after 2:00pm, Dr Pepper when they plow his street. The forcast is cold but sunny.I don't think there can be too many volunteers. Bring shovels & help if you can.

Today was an unbelievable good day. I was to meet Shawn Harmon at noon. He showed up with his brother Scott (donated $50.00 to our fundraiser} along with Brad Beverley.  I came back to the parking lot to exchange my shovel for a blower. I see Al Hermosillo & Chris Brenholtz, they had to travel some distance, & then Mike pulls up.  They started on #18 & worked their way to #15. In the middle of all this Dave Kociuba shows up. We stopped on #12 thinking the other crew would go to #13. Not so & Jacob's car is in the lot. He does #13 & & #14. That lifted my spirits to a level I haven't had in a while. Now it's not over, Dean Bingham came out with a snow blower & he with a small help from me, removed the snow from the pavilion. Just super!!!
You guys are the greatest!!!
Shawn was shoveling so hard he broke his shovel.Brad didn't mind, he used his shovel.
Thanks Fellas, I don't know if I could count on me like I thought. To be sure I'd give the effort.

Everyone does a little part. What a great team! Just like Fox Valley when it comes to helping the less fortunate! Just sit and think for a minute what all of you are doing for free or paying to do. UNREAL! Be proud because the Morning Star Mission loves all of you. Such a good story! Your helping so many.
