I've been busy being "They".......... making next tee arrows to be hung under the baskets at Blatnick. Practice basket in the basement makes a great place to hang them while the sealer dries.

Glad you explained that they are drying in the basement. I was very confused about which way the next hole was until you cleared it up.

Good job THEY!

VTI is this weekend so Hawk Hollow has gotten its annual sprucing up. New turf on most of the tees, couple new baskets replaced old ones, bridges leveled back out after flood, etc,etc.

New bench on #16 at Ewing Park in Des Moines, Iowa. Concrete with 3/8” inserts and cedar slats. Raw material costs (i pour the concrete molds) covered by a friend of disc golf. My 4th bench at Ewing and first install of the year. Temp anchored until pavers added this week.

Paver laying in front of this and a couple from last year next. More to come this year around the metro. ... starting to angle towards getting a high class pavilion project going.

Bought reusable forms online. A bit pricey at @400$ for a set of left and a right.
3/8-16 threaded anchors for slats or a ground anchor point.
130# of fancy concrete mix and rebar each side. Needs to cure a week or more.
Fit and bolt on 2 x 4s and replace/ repair pretty easy down the road as needed. Should last a while as no wood to ground contact.
Minimum material cost of a 6 foot bench around $60 with cedar.

Lots of hefting and labor. Main reason for this choice is does not require permanent placement as it does not require a poured base. Far easier for a parks OK and I am in multiple parks jurisdictions. If it were totally up to me, I would do steel supports into the ground and a poured base with wood slats (I like wood) for less labor and easier handing.

They had too much time on their hands last year. They'd better get more than two fools for this year's project.
