Rich told me the same thing yesterday. I also found out the baskets are going to be ready to put back in this weekend. I think I'll try to get a work party going on Sunday afternoon again (after the storms clear). I'll try to incorporate the digging up of baskets 7 & 8 as part of that. If Rich wants to he can then have the city cut down the pipe on #8 since we can not lower it.
Since I'm unemployed I probably have more "free" time than you so maybe you should pick the time. Do you think we'll need to remove the basket? It might be difficult to dig around the basket. If you think we'll need to take the basket out we'll need to get Rich there with the key.
Would you be interested in helping me dig up baskets 7 & 8 at O'hauser? They were installed incorrectly by the city years ago. The new number plates on top the baskets do not face the tee pad/fairway. I also think #8 needs to be lowered a little.
