I personally have seen many people step on ferns without a thought for the greenery. It is time to act as stewards and call people on their carelessness.
Thank you to the following people who contributed to a kick ass work party at Dexter today:
Ben's wife Sarah (who doesn't even play disc golf, I think)
Marx's friend and Marx's daughter (sorry I didn't catch the names)
Kevin and Jory's friend whose name I also didn't catch
Tom Chrestman and his weed whacker
At least one other guy whose name I don't know
Sorry if I forgot someone, I am going from memory. We got all the scotch broom along 18's fairway removed, half of the broom along the road to 15 removed. A great gravel walkway from 15's tee, gravel on 6's walkway, mulch around several pins, and some more gravel and mulch work that I did not see. Probably some more stuff too. Tom weed whacked his way around the whole course. Great job everyone!
Next work party Monday June 15th. We did get final permission from the State Parks dept. to pull the baskets, and they support the idea. However, it appears the baskets will be staying in. There was some miscommunication and some wild speculation involved in this whole thing, and hopefully we can accomplish good things without the more drastic steps. Everything's cool, Dexter is getting some attention, and the State parks boss is very impressed and very happy with the time and materials the EDGC is bringing to the park.
See all you Dexter regulars Monday June 15th, and Thursday June 18th at 4 pm for the next two work parties.
