Went out yesterday and cleaned up the rough on the left side of 15, and cleaned up the green.

If anyone is going to be out on Middle today, PLEASE take a couple of garbage bags with you and pick up trash. Mostly on the back where there are no trash cans :roll: .

Thanks for the ongoing help out there everyone.

Going to go out at around 5:10 to walk the course today to see what needs to be cleaned up for Rumble, if anyone's interested.

Probably going to move some pins, too.

Went through the course last night with Evan and Alex O. It's in pretty decent shape for the most part. Although all the rain we've gotten has made for some very swampy areas. Especially around 11 left, and the bottom of 15 is a real mess.

I think Ron and Evan are going out there tonight, and I'm going to join them. If you're able to get out there on your own, here's a short list of what needs to get taken care of:

creek area between 8 and 9s fairways all up and down can get cleaned up.

10 - green and landing area all around the pin

12 - right side of fairway and green area

14 - although not vital, since it's a pretty big job, if we can get this cleaned up, we can move the pin to the middle or even long position.

15 - big thorn bush just left of pin. will need loppers and gloves.

16 - left side of fairway, and parts of right side.

Looking to get out there again this weekend. Possibly Monday, and sometime next week when we may get the City to run the chipper. Get with me.

Thanks. Feel free to bring your weed whip and have at it! I talked to the Parks Director, and he knows we're going to be in there working.

I think the "bridge" between 6 and 7 got washed out. I'll look at that.

Big thanks to RonRazz for getting out there last night and flying solo.

We'll likely be out there tomorrow (Saturday, 29th) after noon trying to open some routes, and cleaning up 14.

Feel free to join in. Call me (john) if you can't find us. 563-676-6686

Just wanted to say thanks to Jamey (FB) Linville, and Ron (Razz) Rasmussen for helping get Middle Park cleaned up on Saturday.

I can't believe how much we got done (and that we didn't die of heat stroke) for three people. It was a very good day.

Thanks you guys!

Oh, for anyone that's out there this week, PLEASE take a garbage bag with you and pick up litter. A little bit really goes a long way, and it DOES make a difference. Thanks in advance.

Cleaned the snow off tee pad on #2. It was about 1/3 covered. I plan on playing Sunday around 1:00 in case anyone wants to play.

Fri. 3/11. Player wading in creek. Water deep, cloudy, cold and fast. Finds his disc and throws it up on bank. A blue, CE gator w/ silver stamp. I said, "that's a $100 disc! Why are you throwing it around the water? He replied, "It hit funny, skipped and rolled in". Anyway he got it safely back into the bag. Story w/ a happy ending.

Marked the pin on hole #15's short left position. Cleaned the whole green up as well. It should be ready to play. If someone has the key to the lock please go ahead and move it or PM me and I'll get the key from you and move it. Thanks.

Hole 12 has a small tree that is bent over and hanging in the fairway that should be removed.

Hole 14 has a big tree down early that should be cleaned up. There is a branch that is broken on a tree further down that needs to be cleaned up as well.
