Devens, MA


Rock and roll! Check out the efforts of these cool folk working to bring the Bay State another great place to toss. Their first big work event is set to happen this weekend. I wish you good weather and great energy. Here are the temporary targets that will grow this course.


I went to the Home Depot this morning and bought the rest of the materials for our temp baskets. After some experimentation, I figured out that the best way to cut a hole in a tennis ball is by using a drill with a hole-cutting attachment. The utility knife method was just too difficult and dangerous for me (I've lost enough fingers already thank you very much). Once I exerted some pressure on the ball to flatten it a bit, the drill cut a nice hole through the ball. It took me a few tries before I got it right, but once I learned to go slow and steady, it was no problem.

Next, I drilled four holes in the bottom of the buckets to make it kid-proof and slightly less attractive to thieves. My prototype from last week did not hold, so I'm going to try some different adhesive this time. It's hard to find adhesive that says it works with plastic.

Oh and by the way....check out all the possibility for expansion on this course. Damn!
