You've got my support, Clanger. I don't play Carrollton very often but you are correct, it is not finished. We volunteers are at heart, discgolfers. I don't want to mow my own lawn much less than doing lawn maintenance at a disc golf course. That said, I will give up 4 hours at a time to work on a specific project. And, as I get older, I get a bit of satisfaction helping grow the sport by chipping in and working on a course. Who knows, maybe we will be remembered fondly for the volunteer work we did. Come to the next board meeting, Monday Sept 9, 6p at Schlafly's Bottleworks (may change). Carrollton though is more a Bridgeton golf course than a Club golf course. We have a 2 year agreement with Bridgeton using our baskets and experience. Bridgeton is building a walking path and other amenities (bathrooms/shelter and dog park included) in the near future. They are digging up most of the roads. This course will change a few times before the final version is in place. The City of Bridgeton also has the wherewithal to pour tee pads when the time comes. There is, however, the knowing of how slowly governments move, many years in some cases. In some cases, our Club moves slowly too. Personalities, agendas, vendors, funds take time to align.
Chris, a lot of the points you make don't require much money and will make a big difference towards enjoying the course. It's good to see you back and working on a disc golf course:)
