  • Help us organize 100 volunteers Oct. 14th, Woodland Creek Park

    This is the big one Elizabeth! The Lacey Parks dept. has promised us a group of 100 volunteers to help us build our course. I have 10, but I need about 10 more dedicated work party leaders to commit show up that day and run a crew. Ideally, we will have 2 of us for every 10 of them. 12 people per hole plus a roaming crew of 12 = potential for getting a LOT of work done!

    We will be having a meeting at the course for the leaders prior to the "big one" to get everybody set up with a hole and or task. Let me know if you are interested.

              The park will be providing a wood chipper and two staff to run it. We need wheel burrows, shovels, rakes, loppers, machetes, goats, and gloves. Wheel burrows are going to be the most important. We plan on having a lot of wood chips, we need to be able to move them!

                  I can't promise anything, but as many job sites as you have been on, you should know to label your tools!

                  BTW thanks Matt!

                    That's right... label your goats too! or at least dye them a bright color.

                    I've been a proponent of encouraging our Fairgrounds winter work parties to "trim as if you were a herd of goats" You have to nub it down to even make headway when the spring "Grow" hits. This winter I think we'll need to be even more aggressive than last year. ...it all grew back from April to June!

                      We are looking good for next Sunday. We have a bunch of trails cleared to remove all of the downed brush and limbs. I think we have all of the holes covered as far as leaders go, but I would love to get some more RSVP's.

                      We will be getting organized at 7:30. we will be on the course by 8am.

                            just a reminder and a couple of questions

                            thought i would throw out the reminder
                            no power/gas, tools are allowed
                            so, come help out, but bring hand/arm powered tools only


                            .....................................
                            whats the major goal/work objective, going to be?

                            cut down and chip branches/brush, and also chip the piles that are already down?

                            also spread chips?

                            if so,
                            do we have enough wheelbarrows coming?
                            or do i need to borrow one from work?
