  • Orchard Work Party 3/16/2013

    Just in time for spring, we're planning a work party to finish up the course changes that were begun last fall. On the to do list:
    • Concrete pads for holes 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, and 9
    • New pad locations for holes 3 and 7 to make tougher / more interesting shots
    • Minor adjustment to pad on hole 9 - move back slightly and level. Build small retaining wall to prevent erosion.
    • Fairway work on hole 8. Trim bushes and trees to create fairway. Remove invasive ivy and blackberry.
    • Install basket for hole 8.
    • Remove unused collars (hole 3, 7, and 9). Possibly move them to new locations.
    • Move sign from old hole 7 to new hole 8.
    • Spread chips on walkout paths and hole 8 fairway.
    • Trim bushes around pad 7.

    As you can see, that's a pretty do-able list. We're hoping to have some of the teepads prepped ahead of time, but there will still be a lot to do. The work will be a lot faster with volunteer, so please come on out.

      Thanks, Dan. We're gonna try to put this little course back to the shape it was in before the changes were made. The first re-design has prompted us to make some more tweaks and the parks department is working with us.

      This work day will be a good opportunity for disc golfers to rally and show Hillsboro Parks what we can do. I see that DGOD has an event that day, but our choices on dates were limited. So, thanks for the support anyhow.

            yep, and new permanent tee pads in better positions to provide more length and challenge.

            and we could really use your help on that day getting it all done. round up a couple buddies (or family members ) and come join us on 3/16. get in touch with Scott Hill or myself and let us know if you'll be joining us.

            Thanks,

            Garry Hanley

              Hole 8 will replace the old hole 7. This will be, without a doubt, the toughest hole on the course. It will be somewhere between 200' and 225' long depending on the pin position (I hope to have several), but a very narrow fairway with low overhang.

                      Glad to hear you'll be there. I know you weren't thrilled with the changes last fall (who was?) and I'm happy to see you'll be part of the solution. I think you'll love the new tweaks we have in store.

                      Keep up the recruiting. We have big list of things to get done to get the course in shape before the start of Tuesday Twos.

                        That's great Luis! Thanks for posting your support here. I think we've worked out the best compromises that we can with the parks department. It's been a bit frustrating for Scott and I, but I think we've done the best we can for this little course. The parks department is putting a lot of effort into this now, so it'll be good for us to get the disc golfers out for the work day.

                          Don't forget the work party at Orchard Park this Saturday 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00.

                          We have a lot planned: New tee pads (hole 2,5,6,7,8, and 9), a new fairway (7), new bark chip areas to help with drainage (hole 2 and 9), bark chip paths, and a new basket placement (hole 5).
                          We can't get this all done without a lot of help, so please come support the course.

                          Additionally, the 2013 Tuesday Twos fundraiser discs are in and will be available for first sale on the day of the work party. I'll be raffling off one during lunch (winner's choice). The available discs this year are: Gummy Champion Rhyno, Champion Gator, Champion Metal Flake Leopard, Champion Metal Flake Teebird, Champion Metal Flake Tern, Blizzard Boss, and DX Roc.

                          I'll also be out at the park doing work on 3/15. Message me if you're available that day as well.

                              Probably no later than 9:00.
                              Need to verify with the Parks Dept. that they'll have tools available, but at this point it looks like we'll be good to go.
