7-8 days of work to complete the task.  Day 1 starts with Mike Vargo on the initial dig.  Day 2, framed and partially filled stone on 8 pads.  Day 3, framed 8 more while the first 8 were being poured, and poured concrete on the remaining 8.  Then it literally poured.  We had to wait a couple hours to finish the pads because of rain.  Day 4, stripped the forms and back-fill.  Day 5, framed 3 more pads and filled with stone.  Day 6, framed 4 more pads and filled with stone.  Day 7, framed 1 more pad, leveled, compacted, and poured concrete.  Day 8, stripped the forms and back-fill.  Everyone listed had a hand in either the framing, concrete, or back-fill of the tee pads @ Highland.  Thank you for all the hard work & the investors.  Let me know if I forgot someone.  Thanks.

How do you like them apples...

My hat is off for Dean, I need to throw in Mike Vargo also.
Dean was the go to guy for the Highland tees. He took calls, made calls, getting help, working with Mike on the stone etc. Dean was huge!!! Mike took the gravel to all the tees with the park's equiptment along with getting the comcrete to those hard to get areas. Tremoundous labor saving. All that helped worked well together to get the job done. I thought it was very good team effort.

Don't stop believin'
