Course Update Tournaments, Irrigation, September Heat! 

Luke 10:2And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. (“or the equipment”)Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out(“equipment”) laborers into his harvest. I added equipment but thank you for your prayers last week! With only 1 & 3/4 of a pump for 300 plus acres we needed rain, and when the Baptist pray God answers. Not just for the Baptist but I heard he answers their prayers first! Both greens mowers broke down this morning on the first day of a home series of outings that last through the end of the month. We were able to get the greens cut on Players where the tournament will be today, tomorrow, and Saturday! 

  Thanks Mike Sloma from Residex and the Mirage for fairways. It worked great for a couple of days! I’m glad we are “Backed by Bayer” see you all later this morning. Mike below assisting in the sump pump drainage on five Players. We got rain & lightning! 
 It just takes awhile for the sump pump to move the water. Lightning below snapped a few cards.  

 Retired Federal Circuit Court “Judge” needed his jump box and Nancy did too so we could finish mowing greens. Also Chuck had to wait for a jump box too on the tractor blower but it wasn’t enough so we had go get his Dodge Ram 350. We also have to turn the jump boxes around quickly and get them back out to the tee mowers so they can finish all before 9:00 AM EST! 
 This too shall pass said the Judge! 

Travis rolled the Foxfire greens and watered them to get the dew off for members and regular play.  


 Jim had a trick he learned from Chuck he learned in Vietnam. But we need the Dodge anyway, and different jumper cables because we had to cut the end off our cables  to fix the blue jump box.  

 Chuck took me to Century yesterday and wanted to buy this mower but it was 30k and it has snow plow attachments!  

 Travis figured out how to start Chuck’s truck. Let’s see if it will crank the Kubota! Wow heck of day.  

   Irrigation watering in the grub control and checking the irrigation.  
 TJ was able to utilize our 30 year old fairway blower last week for a little while. We just rebuilt the engine in it!  

 18 Players tee broken gear drive was reputed and several solenoids this past week. We still have one more solenoid to switch on #9 Players tee and we should be back in complete operating order on the Players club. And with 10 minutes left Nancy is quick on the jump box turn around and air tank for TJ tee mower. Thanks for your prayers please keep praying.  

Chuck is going again!  

And a week ago last Monday I got to take Dad to the Central Ohio chapter meeting at the Clippers baseball game! Last time we went Dad took me 30 years ago.
