July 23, Gladwin Summer Work Day(s)
Posted by Bob Wheelock on 6/13/2022, 10:26 am
July 23, Saturday, major work day, start at 8 AM
This is the major work day to start and complete the majority of yearly course work. Below are plans to identify and ribbon various reroutes, extensions or changes to the current courses. No new courses have been proposed, no additional logging will take place on the grounds until the winter of 2024.
The detail flagging below will probably take place during the week and will probably take place in the next few weeks. It you did not attend the meeting and want to participate in the reconnoitering of changes contact Brent Peters, Mike Singleton or myself for coordination.
If you can't attend the July 23rd date but have time on other days the 8 courses not listed below will require general clearing and painting. Paint is available at the Alibi (contact me if you don't have access to the Alibi) PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY OTHER BRAND OF BLUE PAINT OTHER THAN SUPPLIED TO US BY BRUCE. The paint provided is non-toxic to vegetation and must be used for marking courses. If one wants to work outside of the July 23 date that is great, it is encouraged. Just know that NO cutting of trees, trimming etc can be done prior to July 15. On july 15 and later the ban is lifted on the Oak Wilt closure and cutting and trimming can be done. If you plan to go outside the July 23 day let me know and we will guide you to the courses that still require maintenance.
Prior to the major work day there will be individuals reconnoitering and flagging the following possible reroutes. No major course changes have been proposed. 8 of the 16 30-minute courses have been identified for possible improvements.
C-1, start at the west end Bird Field Gate, add some minutes to course with end of course at current spot. Bottom of la4rge hill, possible reroute to right and hit the cover is right and across the large opening at bottom of hill.
