Concrete Tees for Highland
« on: March 07, 2010, 08:14:47 PM »
As some already know there is buzz about concrete tees for Highland. Some of the obvious hurdles are money & labor.
I'm helping Darrin & Jessie put a game plan together. Some of the tees will be difficult to get to. With  enough people we may do the difficult, not much is impossible, & certaintly not the hard to get tees at Highland,with enough help.
Get a hold of Darrin & give your level of experience in concrete. Depending on the game plan we may need strong backs. We could get a concrete pump truck but that's not cheap.
Lets see if we can get something going.

There is going to be a glow tourney to help raise money for these concrete tee pads.....  Also I think that if someone wants to sponsor a tee I am not sure on the costs of these tee's yet but if you are interested in sponsoring a Tee Pad respond to this post.  I am guessing something like 200 per hole will be the cost depending on deals.  Also I think Gary is going to have some fundraiser plastic for sale to help raise money as well.... These are just ideas and nothing is set in stone but keep your eyes open for all that will be coming..   These tee's would be a great add on before tourney's start coming to the area....

i would be willing to lend a hand with the labor and would suggest  a concrete buggy instead of pump truck its much cheaper  and just as fast

My back is weak, and my expertise is small when it comes to concrete. I can, however, play gopher or whatever else needs to be done. I just can't safely lift more than 30lbs, and definitely not repeatedly.

I am, however, more than willing to pony up some cash to help get this done. I think Darrin already has me on his short list for this, but I wanted to respond to this post anyway to show support, and make sure my name is still on the list.

My personal wish is a concrete tee for hole 15, with a slight slope to the back to help the water flow off of it without creating a safety issue. (ie: slope to the front could be a safety issue, especially in the winter.) But, of course, this is probably the most difficult hole to put a concrete tee pad on.

With the recent news about Shorewood, I think it will be great to show the city of Joliet that we are committed to this sport and willing to improve the parks we play in thru our own time, effort, and money.

My experience with concrete is low to nothing, but i am more than willing to lend a hand, even cover costs of constructing a tee. I signed up with the forum because i read to leave a post if you are interested in lending a hand, so just send a pm and let me know what i can do.

You need to put your name on the list. Get hold of Darrin Johnson, he works with leagues on Wednesdays. Anyone who wants to help, do the same.

Has any time frame been discussed on when these tees get put in? Thanks.

Darrin is asking for $150-200 from anyone who wants to sponsor a pad. $150 should cover most pads, but $200 will allow them to do the more difficult ones, or to pool the extra $50 from each donation to add even more tees.

Talk to Darrin at leagues for more info, or to sponsor a tee.

The tee pads look and feel great! Thanks to all the guys that busted butt on this last Friday. They managed to finish 16 tee pads in one day.

That is fantastic! A heart felt thanks from this disc golfer as well.

I did get a chance to tee off from some of them, and they are perfect. Nice size and shape, and the grip is excellent.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to get these in!

All whites & blues are done @ highland except #16 because it is probably coming back up on top.  Please help keep people off the newly poured tees until Wednesday night at doubles.  (5, 6, 12, 13, 14, 15)  We could use some help early and throughout the day on Tuesday and Wednesday to help babysit.  Thank you everyone that funded the project and the guys that got the job done.

I would, also, like to start spreading the word to not put any salt/sodium chloride? on the new tees this winter.  There were a handful in the first pour that were rained on early(and the second pour might not have got the fiber mesh put in the mix), so we would like to see how they turn-out after the first season without that variable.
