Black Mouse Update 6-02-22

Hello, Black Mouse Faithful,

We’ve been stuck in a holding pattern for quite a while now, so there hasn’t been much to report since I was told we can start the reopening process when the leach field project is completed and signed off by the state. 

With school about to adjourn and one concerning new development, it seems like a good time to share.

The last time I received communication from the district superintendent or head of operations – a couple of months ago – the project was about to begin. Since then I’ve left multiple voicemails and sent multiple emails without a reply. I’m a little troubled by that. 

A couple of days ago I walked up there to look for project evidence and found none, but I did discover a number of firs cut down and littered across holes 1,2, 3, and 9. Luckily no damage to tees, benches, or sleeves that I could see, but all of those holes are majorly affected, playability-wise.

Hole 1 tee area. The fairway also has several new very large trunks.

I just left more messages so we’ll see if I get a response. We may need to coordinate a show of solidarity and determination to get our course back. I think we should schedule a meeting and as a group determine a course of action.

To those who donated to the GoFundMe campaign, thanks again. Those funds remain untouched and safely in the hands of our club treasurer, Doug O’Dell.
