Jorge, will do when I know I am heading out west/northwest.

All, FYI, I have finally completed the JB front nine and will post at some point.
Thanks to Dude and John, er Shoe for helping on the front nine.

I want to get back there again to get the back 9 at JB.
I am available Wed and Thursday this week at around 415ish on both days.
I will have my 7yo with me, but she shouldn't be too much trouble. I suspect
we can get it done in an hour or two at most. I finally got a good system down
that works pretty well.

Anyone?

Preferably someone that knows what pin positions are designated.
They get funky on the back I think. Although, I can still measure them and
note which ones they are (IE left back, right of original etc etc) and then "name"
them later as "A" or "B" etc etc.

Thanks.
DD

Friday (tomorrow) at JB anyone?... I would like one person to help my
measure the back nine at the very least. I would like to go around
and do the front nine again. Ya see, I have a new gadget I "borrowed"
and want to try out.

Around 4-430 is when I would get there.
Leave message here if you can make it.

Thanks.

That is awesome work Dan! Now all we need is signage like Kasnsas City courses have, and do that for all the courses. Keep up the good work, and thank you for this information. I hope that these changes, and all that other info like where trees are, and elevation can be somehow input onto course scorecards and on NEW signage.

You definitely have your work cut out for you, so I will gladly help you (with advance notice as I work nights), just let me know when and where. Once again, thank you! I cannot wait to get this done at all our area courses, if you are still willing to do so, that is... :mrgreen:
Life is short, make the most of every opportunity you get to do the right thing, even when it would be easier to just say "Screw it, I don't care." Make a difference, one opportunity at a time. Smile!

Yeah, but Chris Horvath, aka JORGE, has already offered up his assistance, so that was not an issue, but THANKS FOR REMINDING ME , but that still leaves 15 other places I can go play, ya know?

Not an issue.

I am wanting to hit QR and Endicott very soon.

I know Jorge offered his help at QR, any takers on Endi?

The measuring unit I have right now is "borrowed" and is very easy to use (along with VERY accurate).
So I want to measure as many of the difficult courses I can ASAP.

Sunday looks really good to measure, but the Triple Crown is going on soo....
But, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after 5:30ish, next week look great.

Please, lets try and set up some times to get this done.
Thanks.
