MCC Work

Postby rhand » Sun May 6, 2007 9:40 am

A great thank you to who ever got out to MCC Sat am and cut down the marked trees. What a big help.

The course is gradually coming along. I think that everything could be completed this week if we get help from everyone in the club/interested people.

I know some of you may not like this suggestion, but I propose that since both Tues and Thurs are slated to be at MCC, instead of playing we make these dates work days.

The following is what needs to be completed:

1. #2 green - rake debris and finish pruning small saplings.

2. #3 green - same as above

3. #3 fairway - need to clear upper portion (ceiling) and trim some small trees on the left hand side.

4. #5 tee - need to level out, use stone to create retaining wall.

5. #7 green - clear small brush around green.

6. #8 fairway - need to continue clearing brush on both sides.

7. #8 green - clear brush on right hand side

That is the front 9. I have to run, but will post on the back nine later.

Ok, the back 9

1. #10 - 18 need holes to be dug and sleeves placed ASAP. I have marked with an orange flag all of the pin placements. If anyone has anytime this week, please get a hold of Dave T so he can make arrangements to get you the post hole digger, cement, and sleeves (all of which are at MCC now). The only day that I'm not working 12hrs is Thursday so I will need some big help with this one.

2. #10/11/12 - fairway, cut debris/brush needs to be moved way off to the sides.

3. #13/14 - green needs to be raked and small sapplings/stumps cut

4. #15 - fairway needs minimal triming of 1-2 trees and some vines closest to the basket location

5. #18 - green needs a little more work. I cleared about 75% of the down brush and branches that were there, but there is still more and a lot of stumps that need to be trimmed.

Thats it. Not too much, so lets get going on this.

Let me know if you have questions.

Ryan, I think your idea of people working instead of playing this week only is a great idea------cmon guys sacrifice 1 or 2 rounds of disc golf to reap the rewards of the MCC course for years to come. I , unfortunately am crazy busy as well this week, so maybe its time for the officers to have a week off and let the club members step up to the plate and help us.

Have fun......Dave

Water crossing at MCC #1

Postby mjh33 » Sun Jun 24, 2007 7:14 am

I've got a lot of large roundish rocks (basketball size) and many angular ones and broken up pieces of foundation too. I could bring up a few every time I play MCC and slowly build a better crossing below the chains on #1. Is this coming Tuesday (6/26) at MCC? If so I'll bring some and if it's okay with others I'll keep doing it whenever I play there until a stable crossing is complete.

Id wait for Ryan and Dave to respond to that before lugging them in. I thought I heard talk of building a bridge. Either way, MCC may or may not like rocks in their drainage system.

Postby Dave Thomas » Sun Jun 24, 2007 1:16 pm

DO NOT bring anything onto the course other than SWEAT! The profs are going to get a bobcat and put big rocks in the culvert that blend with the natural landscape..........thx for the offer............all will be well soon....plus, a "little" extra walk never hurt anyone......Dave

No Rocks

Postby mjh33 » Mon Jun 25, 2007 6:47 am

Thanks for the official word - I'll keep the rocks at home and save some back strain. Instead I'll bring a garbage bag when I play there. I was there yesterday afternoon and there are more soda and beer cans added to the collection around the course.

YES!

Postby Dave Thomas » Mon Jun 25, 2007 11:02 am

This is a "College Campus"! It is a 2-year college where you have 18-19-20 year old students (on the average) and you know that the legal drinking age is 21!
If you get caught with alcohol,the Lord only knows what they'll do with you & or the course. I suspect that the public may be banished from using it! Sooooooooooooooo,proceed with caution & NO drinking according to the college officials that we deal with! Thanks
PS............we have nice thing going here.....let's NOT screw it up!

Dave - I think you know that the members of the RDGC are not the offending agents here---have you ever seen a club member leave trash at a course? I just hope that MCC knows that the club is doing the best they can to help keep the course clean.

Just to let you all know, when I went to MCC years back, we used to drink and smoke back there all the time. I honestly still think a lot of the kids still do that there. I dont really see how they would pin it on us. The school admins knows what goes on back there. Thats what happens on a lot of nature trails, ya know?
