Second meadow kiosk in ball field parking lot with course map planned. Max is building a work tracker spreadsheet to keep track of status of current and planned projects.
9: Meadow pin position names - We had a lot of confusion with the color of the new baskets. Club officers had never intended for baskets to be referred to by a color however many people saw them as white (short) and blue (long) pins. We are getting ready to update teesigns and look to have a clearer naming scheme for the course. With that we all agreed the pins should be named Pin A, Pin B, and so on moving forward. Max will change this on Udisc now and the new signs will reflect the change.

They receive $1 off all club events and discount at the club store. To join GVDG contact a club officer or join at any club event.
