Our new clubhouse

In early winter, 2012 our members voted to remove our old lean-to and replace it with an inclosed  modern club house. Dave Robinson drew up the plans and a bunch of guys put in a lot of time to make it happen. Here is the story in pictures.

Our improved runway

In 2008 our members voted to level our runway and parking area, then sow it with a high quality golf course grass seed. 
 
In 2009 we established three plots each testing five different types of grass. In fall of 2009 and summer of 2010 a clear winner was identified.
 
In fall, 2010, the runway was leveled with a bulldozer and the runway and parking area were dragged with a chain link dragger to smooth the field out.
 
After the field was prepared, grass seed was sown in fall of 2011 and new grass began to emerge in late November.
 
The following year we did not use the runway until the grass was well established late in summer.
