One says let's just agree to this and get the course in the ground and go from there.
The other response is to complain a bit because essentially they are cutting out a pretty nice section of trees (permanently) to accomodate eight or nine days of parking for the Cuthbert. (Yes, that's right. When there's no event parking, we still can't use the open meadow or a very nice section of trees.)
I sort of see the value in just ignoring this latest affront and moving on, but I still think that the city needs to explain why they are valuing part-time cars over full-time park users. It goes directly against a number of the city's stated principles regarding transportation and planning.
OTOH, the course will up and running this weekend!!!
Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday. It's a pay-to-play fundraiser for the club. We can forget about the politics and have some fun.
