Highland Park Cleanup for IL State
« on: June 19, 2014, 07:59:03 AM »
Some things that need to be done:
If you have time please fee free to tackle any of these projects. July 5 or 6 and/or 12 & 13 will be the next big organized days but Iíll keep you posted on that.
 

If you (Complete) something post on the website or let me know through email so we continue to update the list.
Disc71@comcast.net
 
Once the Taste of Joliet is over (June 27 Ė 29) the Park District should be able to cut most accessible fairways and the top of hill by 11ís blue tee pad to the parking lot. (ALMOST COMPLETE)

Some of the stuff completed on the list might have to be redone because of all of this damn rain this year. Iíll keep you posted.
 
If anyone has a lot of time during the day and wants a big project to start than go to hole 16ís hill. As always itís going to take a lot of work to get that thing trimmed up. Everyone will be playing both tee pads like last year so most of the hill needs to be cut up. Iíll be starting it this week.

Thanks for volunteering!
 

1.   (Complete) Hole 15 trimming up on top by basket
2.   (Complete) Hole 15 trimming path to blue tee
3.   (Complete) Hole 16 trimming/mowing hill

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.

I'll be out there around 8:00 am tomorrow. Working for a few hours.
If you show up, here are things to bring.
lawnmower
weed whacker
rakes
power saws
hand saws
pruners
loppers

I'll have garbage bags and drinks by the parking lot near hole 10.

I'll be working somewhere on hole 15 if anyone needs me.

1&15 are good for now. Frank will finish 4. I'm going start on the hill on 16 this week. The bent trees on 13 & 14 are gone.
Park District should eventually cut on top by 10 &11.

We have just shy of two weeks to get Highland ready for Ill. State. Getting the Park ready puts added stress on Jesse. I think he has a ton to focus on relative to the tournament. I think next week-end up to the the tournament will be crunch time. If you can help out, that would be sweet. Right now it's general in the scope of everything.
