Thanks for your hard work at the course! I look forward to playing it when it's all done. Maybe I should post a recipe for turtle soup or something, haha jk

Here's the story that the paper wrote about the situation. His first lie is that he saw "workers bearing chain saws" we are not permitted to use a chainsaw. We are using simple hand tools. If we used a chainsaw and used it to cut down the size stuff that we are we would already be done the course. When he confronted me I was using a grass whip (it's like a pre-historic weedwacker)to cut the grass and stuff down on the fairway. The second one is that we are cutting 5 to 7 foot trees. I don't think this is a typo he has said things like this to scare the locals from the beginning.

No mention of the many concession stands that will be built throughout the course though? Or was that just another one of his total fabrications and scare tactics?

No work day this Sat 10-6-12. The Mayor wants to meet with the county and have an ecologist make sure the course won't have a negative environmental impact on the park.

That's a shame. I'm sure that Eagle can only use that one tree to land on

the layor vistied with the 'activist' last week, the time was set for 8am Friday, which I was there but no Mayor. He did end up showing at some other time last Friday though and walking through with only one point of view... :-(

Today, the course designer and man that proposed the course is walking through with the township officals, an environmental specialist, and basically the powers that make the deisions... After that, the designer (John) will get together with the local golfers and share what is going on, and the plan going forward - which should happen tomorrow.

Just running into some opposition, and may just be a delay, or have a very difficult time going forward. No idea how this will turn out at this point, we will know more tomorrow.
