Just throwing some ideas out there... I'd be glad to help with installation as well, as long as Johnny keeps both of his socks on.
Toby, I see no difficulty in raising funds. The baskets are donated, so Joe is soliciting for tee signs, collars and concrete. He felt $125/hole would cover it. I gave him some leads and will be buying a sign for my own business. They will be the DGA split-panels with ads on one side and the hole description on the other.
Joe's aware of the disc golf community and the resources we can provide, but when we talked about work parties he felt he wanted to lead his troop in what little has to be done. There're some blackberries that need wranglin' around hole 4-6, but that's about it. If he needs our help I'll make sure to post it here. I hope to be on hand to simply show what we need cleared and where the baskets and tees are going. The tees will be natural at first but I'll lay in stall mats later on most likely.
NBDG, this is the place to read any updates. I've been updating only when there is real news to report. Joe wants to wait until things dry up a bit out here, and I support that decision. If anyone would like to see the layout I will be available tomorrow (Sat the 16th). Send me a pm. I welcome any input you may have before installation.
