Greetings, Cougar Nation!

FIELD PREP DAYS
ALL parents and players are needed to help with field preparation this coming weekend, April 6 and 7 from 10 am to 4 pm. (Parents only please on Sunday due to CHSSA rules.)
Tasks (in order of importance):
* Cut turf into 6 equal sections (for 6 Tee Stations) or run one full piece. Cut out grass, lay down liner, base material, tamp then set down turf mats. Has to be flush with grass so mower does not hit turf.
* Hang rubber mats at 6 Tee Stations. This section runs along field side of the on-field batting cage.
* Work on Cougar and Visitor bullpen repairs. Use as much of our available turf as possible.
* Shovel, wheelbarrow a couple loads of dirt onto base cut outs. Rake out dirt.
* Bolt back together old Big Bubba which has been moved to the Upper Field, rehang net and vinyl skirt. Grease wheel fittings.
* Assemble new Big Bubba “Turtle” on Cougar Field (if it is delivered on time.)
* Hang netting both Bullpen swing-out protective screens, and in batting cage/tunnel.
Drop and fasten outfield curtain.
* IMPORTANT: We need a team leader for each of these priorities. If you are willing to take the lead on any of the above 7 items, please let Coach Lipka know. Thank you!!
MATERIALS/TOOLS: Most of the work needed this weekend is related to the layout, measurement and cutting of our new donated turf, which has a hard fiber backing. It is important to have the right tools to measure and cut this material:
• Boots, gloves.
• Corded Saws to cut turf.
• Sharp utility knives to cut turf which has a thick fiber backing or cordless small circular saw with appropriate blade.
• Measuring tape, straight edge or chalk line to line out turf cut lines.
• Socket set, pliers, screw drivers, hammers, grease gun to reassemble “Turtle” Big Bubba roll-on field portable hitting cage. Need heavy duty plastic ties (black) to fasten netting to aluminum piping.
• Flat shovels, hard rakes, tampers to rebuild bullpen mounds.
• Need bags of base material and plastic liner to put down under turf to prevent weeds from coming up.
The weather forecast for Saturday and Sunday is partly sunny and 60’s. See you on the field!
