I want to thank Chris Sprague, Alex Oehrlein, Brad Ellis, Dan Thompson, Paul Roesner and his dad, "Mr. Bill", Dustin Oostendorp, Mike Friestad, Ron Rasmussen, and John Scott for coming out on Saturday and putting in some serious time and muscle to help make a big dent into the Quad Cities' newest course.
We managed to get four fairways cleared and a good start on a fifth (no, not that kind of fifth). This is a really big job as there are a lot of small standing trees, big dead trees on the ground, and brush (mostly with thorns) to be cleared out.
We had three chainsaws going non-stop for at least five hours. And, speaking of chainsaws, I (and you) need to give a huge shout out to Reed and RJ McDaniel at B&B Hardware for donating a brand new chainsaw to the club! If you need hardware, tools, building supplies, anything, please try to take your business to them.
The Village of Milan, who had the foresight to hire Chris Sprague on for the next month, will begin working on the course tomorrow.
I'll try to keep you up to date on the progress, and when we'll have another club work day.
Thanks again. You guys ROCK!
