There's suppose to be wind gusts of 50mph tomorrow. May be a little dangerous in the woods. If we wait til the weather is more coopertive, I'll schedule to have a tractor and chipper there.

Yikes, ok I don't need to be working in 20 degree weather with 50 mph winds and snow. In case anyone was actually planning on coming, consider it cancelled.

We'll try to do it on a nicer day.

Let me see if can get this right. You can play disc golf in all types of conditions(ice bowls) but you can't show up and do a little bit of work just cause the wind in blowing and it cool outside. Perfect weather for working, the work itself will keep you warm. Nice days are made for playing not working.

Yep...they canceled the work day..and what did we do?... we went all the way out to Williamsburg and played in 17F, 30mph winds...but it was sunny. I shot a +7 and I wasn't DFL. Shelby needs to learn if you are going to go play in the mud...do it with a truck....and I need to learn how to throw 350+ into a 40mph headwind. The conditions were brutal..but we all had fun.

It's "cool" outside?? Glad to see your physical ailment hasn't curbed your cantankerous nature. :smile

Don't worry, we'll have Turtlecreek (and your course down in Burlington) in great shape by the time you're throwing 360's again....

Don't worry Fred those people who were wimps today will also work on the courses, get them in better shape, and run or help run tournaments this year.

Back to the rubber tee pads, I need some info. I pretty much got ok for them tonight. Fly 18 price is $1155 ( incl. shipping) for 100ft. I was checking on some industrial type mats. I've never played on rubber mat and don't know what to compare. Can't tell by Fly 18 picture. Is the mat solid or have holes? Someone give me some guidance please.

The Mat for the tee-pad is solid without holes I believe. I think overall we could do it for a lot cheaper than that for 9 tee's.

Do we want to plan on another workday this Sunday or the next, or someother date?

I think they plan on working on Idlewild on Saturday. Lexington icebowl is also on Saturday( I will probably play this @ veterens).
This Sunday Icebowl northeast of Dayton at BuckCreek.

Next Saturday Ice bowl Finals @ Idlewild/Boone.

What do you guys think?

I've played on the rubber tee pads before, they have them at The Oaks Disc Golf Course in Mokena, IL.

It's a middle of the road type thing. They are better than the earth, but not as good as concrete in my opinion.
You want to make sure you have a good bed of hard pan under neath the rubber tee pads (obviously) or even lime, because over time they will give, dip and buckle no matter what. A bad thing about the dipping is they will hold water.

I didn't care for them because being a rotund guy, and working against gravity a little more than your average joe public, my shoes seemed to stick to them a little more as far as my foot planting, which made me weary of twisting a knee. I guess it was a mental thing, but none the less, I know at least one other person that might think of this.

But of course...better than mud.

That's cheaper than I thought they would be actually. So $1155 is for the 3/8" version? Looks like they have 1/2" also for more cash. Sure they may not be as good as cement, but I bet they are way better than mud, which is what we have now.

Kevin brings up a good point about the base underneath the pad though. That may be tricky.

I have that course improvement cash if you want to use it Steve.

I should be out there by about 10 AM. The work is mainly going to consist of clearing honey suckle and fallen trees. We'll need some people working chainsaws, and the rest dragging stuff away from the fairways.

The cool thing about the Fly 18 rubber pads is that they are semi-porous so water doesn't pool on them. They seemed to be made of vulcanized rubber. Are the ones being considered like that or what? Any thing is better than mud...

We had a work day last Sunday Liz, Steve & Amy Flint, DanH and myself went through and got quite a bit of work done. This emoticon poke kind of describes what I accidently did to Liz. I'm glad she is still able to see out of two eyes! We'll be doing a work day again soon and I'll try not to injury anyone else.

Thanks to Steve Flint for doing the leg work to get funding for tee pads in the back. There well be Fly 18 tee pads in the back pretty soon. We chose to do this because although there are disc golf holes in the back woods the land isn't owned by the park. The land owners may frown upon random 12x6 side walks in their woods.

Look for another work day in the not too distant future.

The rubber tee mat came in today for the back nine. As soon as the weather cooperates, I hope to get them in.

So what is the update on the pads? Is there any work being done on the front 9? When do you think it will be nice enough to play? We are getting anxious but the rain and swamping is keeping us away.

How about forming a work day during the week. In a couple of hours 10 guys could do tons of work and still have time for a round. What do you think Mike? Can you get your buddies to pitch in?

Brad or Lee, if you plan on going to Turtlecreek for the cleanup, let me know. We can ride together and get more work done.

I stopped by this afternoon and the parks department was working on the tee pads. They excavated the area with a small backhoe installed wood frames and filled them with gravel. It appears as if the tee pads will look very professional indeed.

Wednesday Afternoon Starting at 4:30 PM or earlier I will be at Turtlecreek to work on removing some more honeysuckle and things of the sort.  I will probably work until around 6:00-6:15 before heading to work.

Any and all of you are welcome to join me.
