The design team has finished the layout of the new course at Stub Stewart and we in the process of working with Steve Kruger, lead ranger on this project, to implement our design. We have had some set backs due to weather and timing but now Steve is charging full speed ahead to use non-disc golf volunteer work crews to complete portions of the design and to bring this course to fruition. However we are behind schedule and we are running up against the deadline with Washigton County Tourism Board on the grant that we received last year for the money to buy the baskets and building materials. The course was intended to be completed by June 15th 2010 but as you can see we are not quite there yet.
However there is a portion of the project that we would like to complete this weekend with the help of all of you. This Sunday we would like to complete the 3 hole course in the camping areas between East and West camping grounds. This course is intended to be a beginner/ instructional course and it is in all respects a miniature version of the course that is going in at the hilltop day use area. The course will be going into a very dense stand of trees that are about 10-20 years old. We will be assisting Steve by removing limbs and tree trunks from the areas that he cuts and hauling them out to the open areas where they can be cut up. The trees are on average 4-6 inches round and about 20-40 feet high. Steve and I are hoping to get right to work on Sunday June 13th carving these short fairways into the young stand of trees creating the lanes necessary for instruction and play. The fairways are not going to be very long, 100-200 feet long and are not
intended for anything more that instruction and beginners to play but it could be a fun addition to the camping area with your help.
We are planning to create one hyzer hole, one straight hole and one anhyzer hole for a RHBH, but of course it will provide equal challenge for all beginner throwers of any orientation.
I also need your help in that I can not be on-site for the entire day and I need someone to take the lead on this project for the volunteers. Steve will be the park lead and will provide the structure for the project but I need someone to fill in for my role. We are hoping to complete this project within a week or so to get ready for the camping season that is upon us. We have all the materials necessary to complete the project including the baskets, tee pad frames and pavers. All we need are volunteers and some time. If you know anyone else that can come out and help please invite them as well.
If you can come out to the work party and give a few hours of your time that would help us out immensely. Please email me back so I know if we have enough people to make this happen.
If you can and would like to take the lead in my place please contact me so we can work out the logistics.
