    Im still looking for volunteers for Thursday framing. Friday is looking pretty good, but if we don't get the framing done, there's no place for concrete to go!

    Call me if you know how to run a shovel!

        Jeeze Mike Ah, I mean Chris. If you had just givin me the oly mini I might have driven the 100 miles (one way) to help.

        Post guards around all finished boxes!!!!!!
        Dogs and kids love fresh crete + it keeps the "tagging" down to minimum

        Here are some other tricks

        Use a roto tiller to rough out the boxes it will provide a level starting spot and all you need to do is scoop

        Dont make boxes flat with the ground. Raise them up 3/4" or so so they are easier to level. Use at least a three feet long level and 2x4 to rest it on. Also corner to corner.

        Don't haul off dirt. Use it to level around the box (like run ups and level landing areas) after crete sets.

        Think about how you want them to drain

        Don't get sucked into broom finish. Leave em smooth, You will want to use an after market product called shark skin then a good concrete sealer. This is the most important step and never gets done. imho

        Good luck see you at the Wash

          Jub, i will garuntee you a TEAM OLY mini if you come down here! you will even get a handshake from me.

          we are going to be texturing our tee pads the same way Milo Mciver's tee pads are done. it is sort of a criss cross diamond pattern. they are the best surfaced tee pads that i have ever seen.

            TYVEK, listen to Jub regarding the concrete. He knows of what he types. If you can get him out to Yauger for the framing (and possibly the pouring), your pads will be all the better for it. He was a HUGE help when doing the tee pads at Trojan.

                Agreed. I'd hoped that we could do the same with our new pads at Terrace, but it was all kind of a last minute scramble when we put them in. Ended up with the broom finish instead, which I think works fine.

                One thing I'd add though, is don't be too impatient to play on your sweet new pads, let them set up for a few days at least.

                  Thanks Zippy,

                  TY I am already working at another course tomorrow, Sorry

                  Tim normally it will take about 6 weeks for the pads to be set. On a warm day about five hrs to have skin form (able to stand but not pivot). usually two full days before you should even play on them. If it looks like rain cover them with plastic and add more time.

                  My info came from the actual PGE sub-contractor who poured the pads (at least the ones I helped with) at Trojan.

                  The problem is when concrete has too many edges (in this case brush marks) the weather will breakdown the surface pretty quickly. Not a complaint but #6 at The Tac, the front edge is already thin (Less than 5 years). Granted it's a longer hole but I think that length ha send it's demise.

                  Anyway, No matter what finish you decide on, Please use the sealer. You won't be sorry!

                      Hey Jub, thanks for the info. I will check out the shark skin tomorrow. We are already set on doing a diamond pattern like Milo, but I'd still like to look into it. If you get this post, let me know where you got it to save me some running.

                      I put in 11 1/2 hours at the course today and didn't throw one single disc! Thanks to everybody who came out to work. We got 13 out of 14 framed, we will pour at noon tomorrow.

                      It always surprises me (although it shouldn't) who does and doesn't show up for work parties! The guy who is at the course 7 days a week for hours at a time doesn't make it, and the guy who has been to the park once before is there all day!

                        I can't believe Jub of all people didn't go for the HUG! Maybe a "good game" kind of smack on the butt will do it! Jub?!

                          Can you give some more details on what shark skin is and where does someone purchase it?
                          I might be helping with some tee pads in the future.

                            Shark skin is available at Home depot.

                            The hug: Is that a hug between a man and a woman or one of those sweaty man show jobs?

                            Thor We (Guy and I) poured a bunch of pads at Terrace back in 2000, Fixed old 2,5,6,7, old 9, 10,11,12,14,15,17,18. I don't know if you remember the old jub truck but after hauling 18 bags water and such up to 10 as we were driving out the truck got into an argument with the old aluminium benches by the old ball field backstop. Anyway it carved open the truck like a can opener. I swear inside the hole it said pepsi. lol

                              The product is actually called SharkGrip. It isn't available at HD, but is available at Sherwin Williams distributors. Ill find the website again and try to attach.
