Same old same old:

4-14-04 Flooded again.
(Wildlife conservationist have taken an interest in the property.)


The crew actually got on the courts on Saturday.

And scraped mud off the surface.


When there's a pond at the club and we have heavy rains (heavy rains), mud washes down onto the courts and it has to be removed. Because: The mud is scraped off the courts into piles and then shoveled into wheelbarrows and trucked up the hill behind court 3 and dumped, later to be taken away by the same bobcat (Eldco) that brought the new clay. All cyclical, like. Mudding is arduous and messy and everyone hates to do it. Especially on a sunny Saturday. (On Saturday the crew's conversation was about whether people in coal mines were having more fun? or people in hell? Rocky opined that we may never know, or we won't know for a while.) We have two and a half courts still to be mudded.
