My boys and I competed in the Philadelphia Disc Golf open this past weekend.  All three of us "cashed" and took home some prizes.   So cool to share a new sport with the juniors.   Looking forwar

Back from the Azores. Tom may want to relocate. Temps in the 70s. A brief shower or two most days.Thick, weed-free Bermuda grass on lawns and golf course.  Looked bullet-proof.

My 8 yr. daughter’s school project (planting sunflower seeds after shutdown) has umm....been a success. She is ecstatic, 10-12 feet later.

Planted Brussels sprouts and broccoli outside this weekend. 

I see Brussel sprouts on the plant I planted last year.  Do you think they are good?

Not going to be able to get our mower tuned up, so I hope it will work "as is".

All golf courses closed ufn.

You'll probably get sprouts. They should produce flower and seed even in the 2nd yr. Frost is also supposed to enhance their flavor.

I wonder what would happen if I tried to sneak on to a course?  I have Neshanic Valley about 4 minutes from my house.  I want to take my pull cart out and play a few holes.

We pulled all the flags and everything and reporting anyone that does show up. We are still working but golf is closed

I figured that would be the case.  I was hoping the courses could stay open, but only allow walkers and no carts.  Hopefully in a few weeks courses can open again.

I noticed several cars parked near a closed course near my house a few days ago. There location was suspicious as there really is no other reason to park in the general area (nothing around) pretty sure it was a group of guys who just hopped on the course for a free play or some practice shots.

This social distancing thing is tough. They closed state parks where you have the most miles of trails and open space causing people to congregate in small local parks or their neighborhoods which in my opinion causes more "interaction". I get closing the bathrooms/eating areas down at state parks but policing parking areas just for access to trails sucks. I'd much rather be out among 100's of acres with my kids rather than a small local park with a packed trail and kids congregating on the playground. We already told them no playgrounds, just hiking, biking or scootering as a family.

I think Delaware's White Clay Creek state park is open for hiking. There are lots of trails.

I figure in a couple of weeks they will let walkers on.  I don't know if there is an inflection point where we can avoid both a medical and economic disaster.

Sucks. People just trying to enjoy a nice day and all stuck in the same (open) spots. I bet this park normally has 4-5 cars on a day like today. I count over 20 currently. Last thing the governor wants.

The PA Golf Association has already petitioned the Governor to reopen courses based on the stipulations of walking only, no rakes, no flags & raised cups.

That is about as likely as me driving the ball 300 yards.

I hope the Golf Association included the importance of receiving timely TACT long-range outlooks in their petition to the governor

We are in the same boat however since our club is member owned we cannot be kept from walking the course and playing.   It's a we are closed/but situation.  I have not played since we shutdown, but if it lasts too long I live 1 mile for the entrance to my club and I will be playing.

You can get more "social distancing" for walkers than in the grocery market. Just saying. What's the difference between taking a walk in the park and playing round on the course.

Yeah, makes no sense. Hopefully golfing and state parks can resume some activities at some point in April. Although I believe most parks are closed til the end of April. I can see keeping facilities closed but allow people to park in lots and use trails (or in golfers cases, courses). At the local, overcrowded park yesterday I was waiting for enforcement to swing by and tell us to disperse. Luckily, it hasn't gotten to that point yet.

Guns shops have been reopened with restrictions. Today there was a push from the legislature to reopen the liquor stores.

Golf, walking only, no flags, no rakes & raised cups is something I believe should be considered. Doctors have said walking & sunlight are very good for the immune system.

State parks I don't get. Golfing I do.
