Hedge BeGone

Well, because of recent mischief happening at the club, it was decided to remove the thick hedge alongside the parking  lot and and the southeast corner.  A great group of volunteers from the club completed the work on consecutive Wednesday afternoons until the job was done.  A big THANK YOU to all who helped out.  What a gargantuan job! The pics give you a chronology of the progress. We have already had some potential new bowlers wander in to get more information after being  able to see the action through the fence.
