Eco Park North - Canby, Oregon

Hey fellas,

The Eco Park course in about 60% finished and this Saturday weíre going to have a work party to continue the development! Here are some objectives:

- Install remaining anchors (5 more to get all 12 holes and practice basket). If we get through this quickly, we can also install some of the alternate pin anchors.
- Clear Hole 1 tee and Practice basket area. Iíll hit it with a chainsaw, then we need to have ppl picking up the debris so that we can then run the brush mower through.
- Hole 4 has about 20 minutes worth of brush mowing left to finish the fairway
- Hole 11 needs some blackberry clearing on the right side of the green ( ~1 hr w/ brush mower)
- Iíll be spending the majority of the day with a chainsaw working on hole 12ís fairway
- Brush mowing on holes 9 and 8, will be really easy but a little time consuming
- Remove ivy from trees along fairways and near tees and baskets

If we get through all of this, we can start leveling the tees under the mats. If youíre able to come, please let me know so that I can have an idea of what to expect. Bring gloves and standard work clothes. Also, please invite your friends.

Also, last Saturday we did in fact put 8 of the 12 baskets up. They are playable and there are some makeshift signs to guide you through the 8 hole layout. Feel free to go play the course, and make sure to step on as many baby nettle sprouts as you can, they are already a foot tall in places! Iíve attached a crude course map for reference (the 8 hole layout does not include hole 12 or the field holes 7,8,9).

Cheers,
Ryan

PS: If you're planning on making it out, please contact me so I can plan accordingly.

I did,. Thank you. Still want to get down to Portland some day to play a round with you. Although I see it says your retired but I didn't know if you meant from competative play, dg politics, etc. Hope you are well.

JR,

If you can get down here I'd love to play a round! I still play casually. I had back surgery last year and I'm still not 100% recovered. Also have a few other health problems that make things a little difficult. I've been playing some casual tournament lately, and I'll probably play a few sanctioned events this year. Who knows, I seem to change my mind about tourney play at least 4 times a week.

But yeah, come down, we'll throw!

Will do. Hopefully I can get in to the BSF but if not, I might be down that way for spring break.
