Dry conditions require firework caution

June 29, 2011

After the extremely wet spring we faced no one would have ever thought that with the 4th of July just around the corner we would be in need of rain as badly as we are. Although we are not in as bad of shape as Florida or west Texas, misused and unattended fireworks could have devastating consequences.

The following steps will help to keep you and your land safe this fourth of July weekend:

1. Avoid mixing fireworks with alcohol or drugs. It’s a celebratory occasion, and its easy to forget that mixing alcohol and fireworks is never a good idea.

Thursday Scrambles take hiatus

June 29, 2011

We haven’t had a scramble in over a month due to lack of participation. We have been playing CATS for the last few weeks but last week there were only 3 of us. Until further notice, the Thursday Scrambles are suspended.

If you are a golfer and want to see Wednesday, Thursday or Friday competitions, get in touch with me and we can discuss something. Without community support I cannot continue to groom the course mid week and have no one come out.

Special thanks to the guys who come out on Monday evenings. We’ll keep it groomed for you.
