2013 Ranch Goals/Projects

This year we hope to get quite a bit done.  We have just a few goals we would like to accomplish and may add to it as we go through the year.  These are listed in no particular order although the Pavilion is always the priority.

Begin (and hopefully nearly finish) Pavilion
Finish West Fence-cut and staple dancers & install gates along the fence line
Fix the upper dam and Build a new lower dam
Run water from the lower dam to the grass field by the pavilion
Run water to the potato field
Plant a larger garden including, potatos, tomatos, squash, corn, etc
Install a 'man gate' to the grass field
Make a parking area above the grass field
Build a wood shed/cover for fire wood
Build outdoor shooting range
Create small camp sites around the property
Rent a wood chipper to spread wood chips on the road
Move East Field Fence

This is a lot to do for one year but if we can do half of the projects or at least get some of them started then we are on track to greatly improving our future experiences there.

This also means that we have to do the yearly work as quickly as possible which includes repairing both the inner and outer fences.  We  hope to be finished with all of that by Memorial Day 5/27/13 so the rest of the Summer and Fall can be dedicated to the new projects we have.
