Wasn't that bad Ian! LOL! I got up at 5:15 and out of the house at 5:30 and with no traffic put me there at 7:30...

If you got it no problem, but if something comes up still willing to do it, just let me know... :-)

Thanks, guys

Normally I could get it done but it is likely that this Friday I'll have a scheduling conflict.

The good thing is the heat has slowed the grass down. it isn't as thick, this time.

Thanks, Mike

The field is good to go (Dean, you can show up at a more "reasonable" time w/o a mower  Wink )

Between my initial cau and Stingers weed whip and final cut tonight, and I did a bit of tidying up, as well, the field is in good shape  Very Happy

We are preparing the field tomorrow for the Oct. 24th Meet.

This will be a "go" regardless of the weather.

We have the option of meeting indoors at the Black Creek Centre in the event of rain; our goal is to have an outdoor event, and the field will be ready, but we have a weather contingency, this time.

I drove by the field yesterday.

The grass is starting to grow and will need maintenance cutting even though the 1st meet is in June.

Right now, I am still getting over that virus that has been going around and have not started on my own 1+ acres.

Hopefully I will be able to get around to cutting it soon.

If anyone local is open to cutting ig, please feel free but lets make sure we post updates; don't want someone making the trip there, just to find out someone else cut it 2 days previously Wink

I drove by today to check it out (Thursday)
I am going to give it a try on Friday AM or Saturday. ( What ever the knee will let me do. )
I will post after.

Thanks Wayne  Smile

Just don't do any damage to your knee!

Doesn't have to be cut to the quality needed for a meet, just need to keep it from being a hay field, when we go to do the 1st field prep.

Thanks Wayne, you da man! I am thinking a crew the weekend before the June meet maybe get together and clean things up a bit. Dig out the riverbeds, do another cut, lift and clean stone roads, etc... Maybe discuss at Oshawa with a few guys...

I checked out the grass at Black Creek yesterday, Mike / the caretaker has cut the grass around our battle site, only the grass on top of the hills needs trimming, can be done any time .
I will keep checking so that when Tank day gets closer we can keep the grass trimmed short.

Weather forecast is looking good for the June 18th meet.

Basically, bring your hats and sun screen!

Dianne and I went over the site again last night with  the lawnmower, rakes and blower.
My cut is not as short as we might like it.
A trimmer would be helpful and maybe a shorter cutting lawnmower but I do not know what others are bringing. ( Dean ??)
I will try to remember to bring my blower but that is all I will have room for.

Donn't forget I will bring hot dogs and condiments.
