QC Course Update (& Basket Replacement Fund started) -
Fellow Llamas, in short, QC is in rough shape. The recent Ice Storm has pummeled the course worse than ever before. For starters, unlucky #8 (our newest basket of course) was completely destroyed by another fallen tree ( extra condolences go to Justin Weaver, who was a major contributor to the former #8 replacement pin) Quickly to the rescue, "Linc Morgan" and "Bob Hoffman," who were visiting the course today and are frequent supporters of QC/BWCC events, kicked in $20, unsolicited, as SEED money to buy another basket. The replacement fund is now up to $50, inclusive of Tammy's generous contribution below. Those interested in contributing should see a member of the of the 0800 crew or other steering committee member. Please post your contribution totals as received, so we know when we're approaching the $400-$500 goal.
As for the rest of the course, there is a ton of loose debris on every hole to be cleared. Gary and Paul have started chainsaw work on the larger pieces, which also need to be cleared. Many bent trees need the ice shaken (not stirred) out of them, so they will bounce back. Do not pull on trees which look like they have a chance to rebound. Please focus on clearing the deadfall, moving all as deep into the rough as is practical.
Lastly, due to the sheer volume of clearing work to be done on the QC course, it is suggested and politely requested that we have a strong showing at 0800 on Sundays (or any other dates/times that work for you) starting now, until the job is done. Thank you for your attendance and support !!
