Saturday was mostly cloudy with a little 5 min sprinkle. The rain completely missed and went around us. Temp was in the low 60s & perfect for disc golf.

See You Next Year,
Jesse
First I had to chuckle at the physical part of work. It reminded me of my framing days, a lot of thinking goes into framing a house. Physical is certaintly a part, but you need to have a good mind. I eat, sleep, drink Channahon & then I apply it. I mentioned in other post the brain storming that goes on. Thanks for the nice words Jesse.

Now about the help it, I tried throughout the year to post thanks. There was a Saturday morning that we picked up four trees from Green Glen. Thor was a big part of that because he had the trailer, & Randy Brummer picked them up. Carbo helped a few morning in the spring with tree rings. Keep in mind it's special when I ask for help. I had help one year painting the 10 meter circles, never again will I ask for help doing that without watching. Although many of the details are not noticed the overall picture looks good. As an example I dead headed the black eyed susan & cone flowers on #8's tee & pulled weeds. I know I mentioned this on another post, Shawn Harmon hauled the bed edger for me. Much is really not noticed, like pruning the paths for a natural canopy, or killing the broad leafs inside the 10 meter circle. Like I said eat, sleep, & drink, & next year starts next week. I really try to give kudos, but things are a blur & I forget. 
Soooo, Thor, Randy, & Carbo gave of their time. Kevin Macuiba with watering the new sod & seed, he's a park employee. I also need to mention Brian let me use the cart, after park hours, so I was able to spread chips until dark.
One Day at a Time!

Nina is thrilled with her plaque. Also thrilled with the reception for her singing. I thought it was very cool to sing our National Anthem before play. Good choice Jesse.

Nina's renditions were perfect. What a great way to start the morning. I think it got people feeling good before they started playing. I know it got the whole staff pumped up.
