Upcoming Tee Pad Workdays on the General

We have a couple of important dates coming for work days to help complete tee pad installation on The General.  

First, this Sunday, April 27th, we hope to install the last 5 ground boxes on holes 4,5,6,7 and 15.  Work will begin after the Sunday Social between 12 noon and 1pm.  Meet at The Hawks Nest or come anytime that afternoon.  Work is primarily clearing and leveling a 5'x12' area and placing a box in that area.  You can bring rakes, shovels, picks but most important is bring yourself as we have tools.  

Second date is Saturday, May 3rd.  On that day we plan to fill and compact all 12 ground boxes and cover them with rubber pads similar to tee pads on the Hill.  We will need wheelbarrows and shovels that day.  

Last will be installation of platforms on 6 of the uphill holes.  Stay tuned for details.

We are close to having The General tournament ready in under 8 months due to the efforts of Devens volunteers.  Let's finish strong over the next few weeks to showcase this new course at The 28 Chain Salute.

Thanks to all our great volunteers.
