Now that's funny! We do have benches, just not on every hole. The creek is turning out to be a great disc washer. Unfortunately we don't have a beer cart, unless you count my riding mower (Too bad it's not running right now). We asked for a clubhouse and decoder rings...the city wouldn't approve them. They said the shelter house was good enough and they thought a local girl scout troop had some left over mood rings from one of their slumber parties. Things are tough all over...

UPDATE;

Went in at 9 this morning and dug 2 more pads, formed them and bedded them. Now we have to wait for some spair mud. was done at 12:30. Next started on 2 poster boards, one for the map and one for info. finished up at 8:00. So there is a map on display now but it is small, we will get a large one as soon as our city map guy gets it done.

Benchers were ordered last week and we are expecting them this week, we will try to put them together and install them within a week.

Signs should be up within 2 weeks unless something seriously wrong happens.

Yea, I've thought the same thing. But, if it is just a temp, something very easy and crude, are we (as the city) putting urselfs into a libality problem because of no hand rail or if it would slip off the creek edge. I dont know if we should go there or not :?:

Have you heard anything about the grant yet?

I'm off today but I'm going to try to make it up to see Nancy anyway, I'll talk to her about it and see what she says.

I think until we get a real bridge in we should just post a note telling people to walk around the top of the creek. Those that want to jump will, those that are not sure will know the shortest route...and get a little exercise.

I am all for getting a bridge in as soon as possible, because all the jumping is causing pains in my bones...or maybe I'm weak from this desk job...

BTW - I had to go work at the office today so I probably wont be out until this evening, if at all...we'll see.

Hmm, I agree Gary. I figured as much... :roll: That's the world we live in though. LOL Anyway, I haven't herd anything back from KCCI, but it's been almost 3 weeks since the deadline - I ought to look to see if there's a date when we'll hear a response...

I guess 'the management reserves the right to make substitutes'...I saw that sign in a diner once...

Hmmm....looks like I'll be jumping the creek a lot this summer...I should be in pretty good shape this fall...maybe we could put in a rope and I could play Tarzan...(insert 'Tarzan' yell here)

It'll get done, one way or another... The signs for the public to knwo where to go - is the biggest concern @ the moment, tbu the bridge comes in close there, and one way or another we'll get it done, even if that means donating materials.

I believe gary mentioned that the city may take care of the bridge...

Oh, by the way: a BIG THANKS goes to whoever was patient enough & had enough balls to clean out the "east-windflower storm drain"... I thought about it, but it looked pretty damn full - needed another time to tackle that, and saw it was cleaned on Friday night..

Here's a sample of the signs. This one is for hole 12. I think they did a great job. I know it will be a while before they go up due to the rain. The creek never left it's banks, but there is a lot of standing water all over the park. It should clear up pretty quickly except for a few areas. Watch out around the basket on hole 11...

I always thought you guys were kidding about the sidewalk being out of bounds.
