It was actually pretty quiet out there this morning.  Most of the work now is cleaning up and leveling off.  The asphalt trucks are due to start pouring the streets later today or tomorrow.  

Today they poured concrete where the dumpsters will be located.


We could see someone out on the ballfield measuring the distance to the bases so we walked out to see what was going on.  (We still have Jim's permission to walk out on the pickleball courts for photos but don't try walking out there or you'll get chased off.  Strict safely rules are being understandably enforced.)

We met Ken Ziediel.  I immediately knew he was from Canada when he spelled his name with a "zed" instead of a Z.  Ken explained how the bases were installed.  He also mentioned the special kind of soil (gravel, grit or whatever its called) that will be spread along the warning track.  It will be similar to the infield mix but not nearly as expensive.  The posts for the dugouts are now being installed.

Ken is very camera shy so don't tell him his picture is on the blog.
(Hi Ken)

Monday night was the first bingo session of the season.  We had a nice turnout for October.  Congratulations and thank you to Flo Fillipi for all the work she has done in acquiring an additional license for Palm Creek.

Cute little MaryAnn Brown got to yell BINGO twice last night including the final black out game.  I wonder what she had for breakfast that morning that made her so lucky!

There may still be tickets available for the October 31 Halloween dance.  Costumes are not required.  Dance starts at 7pm with DJ Larry Pazier.  FREE popcorn.
