3-26 Gene started fire behind 18's tee and began clean-up. Big Frank stopped during his round to assist. Luke showed up and helped start log line along 18's side of creek. Mike "the Axe", Mike W. and Chris came soon after. Mike W and Luke carried pre-cut material over to 1's brigde. Bust yer azz work. Chris began making more steps and water bars above the bridge. "The Axe" carried a ton of fallen wood from the hillside near fire and burned it. Gene felled a big dead tree, and cut it into large sections. Luke, Chris and Mike W positioned the logs in creek, creating a walking path. Luke and Mike W started fire in creek to clean up leftovers from that tree. Osage logs stockpiled and stakes cut. Dogs eaten, beer drank. Very productive night.

4-2 Gene started fire near 15. Began cutting fallen trees and feeding fire. Chris arrived shortly and began digging trench for terracing on 15b. Gene and Chris used chains and Come-along to pull large log into position. Chris anchored log into place and backfilled with several buckets of large gravel for drainage before doing final landscaping. Mike "The Axe" came and went to 15's tee and started moving dirt to shore up slab. Luke came, and he and Gene harvested several large osage logs for Mike. Mike W., after removing over 20 stumps began helping "the axe" with the teepad project. Luke and Gene then began lining the O.B line on 14/15 with logs, completing 14 and approx a quarter of 15. The 2 Mikes used the logs to terrace and landscape 15's tee. The "Axe" seeded area. Beer drank, brats eaten. Lots of great work!

We will hopefully be working on Camden 1 tomorrow night. Stay updated through FB. If it is raining or too wet we will try again Thursday night and if all else fails we will work on Saturday. We need weed whips, shovels and rakes for mulch, and strong backs. Please let me know if you have any questions.

It looks like the rain is going to hold off until at least 7:00 tonight so I would like to get stuff cleaned off the fairways + long tees and spread mulch around baskets. If we can't get it all done today we can finish up on Saturday. I should be there around 4:00 tonight.
