Josh Ohnemus was working on this, but never got it done. He was responsible for raising $3,000 I think? He's off to college if I remember right. He had some money pledged, but not enough to get it approved so far.

Temp basket tourney to raise it?

I'm going to call the city this AM, as I used to do PC support for them when I was consulting...

Just spoke with Jim Briseno, the park director for Carlisle.

He mentioned that the city set Josh up with a goal, btu never heard back from him, saw him @ board mtgs, etc... I asked him if the park dept would still be interested in seeing the project thruogh, and he answered positively. Instead of inundating him with questions, I asked him if I sent him my contact info. Then maybe he'd be willing to have me come address the board @ their next meeting and find out what their expectations & assumptions might be going forward... He said that sounded good.

If by ANY chance, anyone feels that this was a step in the wrong direction, let me know. If anyone else wants to champion this, let me know as well. I just simply wanted to use my relationship w/ the city (while a weak one) to feel them out & make a handoff if necessary.

I'll be finding out when their next meeting is by email. Let me know if anyone's interested in coming with!

I went w/ the wife & kids last night to play @ the park in the Carlisle. It'll definitely fit a 9 holer. Further design & review to follow...

Gary & I went on the next night, Nov 5th to really do the walk/design, and have a couple of options drawn out.

Park Board meeting is this Tuesday, Nov 18th. If there are any players from Carlisle who'd like to come show up to at least show support for a possible course then that'd be great. Nancy the Norwalk park director will be coming to show support as well. Need to ask her if she wants to address the board as well though. I'll be making a small presentation to the park board is all - I need to call Jim & let him know I'll make it this time, and ask him how they format their meetings & such. Then we'll be ready to rock and roll!

I'll find out what time & where, and get back to edit this....

All,

I'm debating suggesting to the Carlisle Park Board that I'd like to put on a fund raising tourney in the Spring. Well, not debating any more!~

As long as the board ok's it - I'll need portable baskets. I should have one of my own again by that time, have one other offered. Will need 7 to lay out the 9 hole course that's proposed....

You mean small holes, or cramped layout?

or in the; it's a dangerous, cramped, and bland course that does absolutely nothing to further the sport and in a variety of very likely situations can actually do more harm to the people who decide to play there (and those that just happen to be there) rather than driving 15 minutes to play on something well designed sense?

c'mon, which one?

Ignore Mr. Negativity up there. He makes some good points about some of the design and safety issues, but overall it is a good course for beginners in a smaller community. I know for a fact that Norwalk has seen a boost in recreational players as well as semi-competitive players since the courses was installed. So I ask you how does this not grow the sport? I agree that the course in Norwalk will not advance the sport by any means, but it will certainly help grow the sport.

I just thought it would have served better as a traditional 9 hole course and avoided some of the conflicts with the skate park, shelter and pool.

that's funny - because your mouth is dangerous to yourself, your style is cramped, and your comments are bland & worthless to furthering the sport. Good luck with your problems, and I'll take care of mine, k?
