Some work was done on the course yesterday while the ground was softened up a bit from the warm temperatures and recent downpours. All of pin positions that were tagged by the mowers have officially been taken care of (either bent back into working status or completely replaced). This means that holes 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 17, and 18 are all back to dual pin status - thank you Jay Adams, Rob Nahlik, Dan Fritz, and Matt Augustin! Additionally, some more sleeves were picked up from the Gateway shop and installation of some brand new pin positions was started as well. Holes 1, 2, and 16 were installed yesterday and there is hope that a few more will go in this evening. What all of this means is that the pins will once again be switched up an a regular basis and the course should stay nice and "fresh" throughout the winter.
Additionally, I got out there a bit before the pin work took place and did a little basket work. All 18 baskets are now marked with GLOW duct tape. There is a band at the very top and bottom of the basket area and a band in the "sweet spot". I am not sure how much this will actually help during the GLOW league rounds where the LED basket lights are used, but it certainly will help if one of the lights runs out of juice or you are playing a GLOW round on a non league night. Either way, the band in the "sweet spot" will come in handy on a regular basis...it gives you a little something to focus on and aim at day or night.
Everyone should fully expect most of the baskets to be in their alternate positions this coming Wednesday (11/20). Other than the new positions going in this evening, here is the breakdown:
1 - moved to new "A" position (shorter-right)
2 - moved to new "B" position (longer-left)
3 - possible new position?
4 - possible new position?
5 - moved to existing "A" position (shorter-right)
6 - stays put
7 - moved to existing "A" position (shorter-right)
8 - possible new position?
9 - possible new position?
10 - moved to existing "A" position (shorter)
11 - moved to existing "B" position (longer)
12 - moved to existing "B" position (longer)
13 - possible new position?
14 - possible new position?
15 - possible new position?
16 - moved to new "A" position (left)
17 - moved to existing "A" position (shorter-left)
18 - moved to existing "A" position (shorter-left)
Come on out this Wednesday for the GLOW league and check it all out! The ACE POOL should be right around $500!!!
