Gemma beats Ôhorrendous’ weather to retain title

first_img30 Mar 2015 Gemma beats Ôhorrendous’ weather to retain title England international Gemma Clews beat both the field and atrocious weather to retain her title in the Delamere Comboy Scratch. She scored two-over par 75 around her home course of Delamere Forest in Cheshire, to win by a stroke in what were described as “the most horrendous conditions imaginable.” The scratch event, which was started last year, should be played over 36 holes but organiser Jackie Hesketh recounted how the competition was reduced to 18 holes after two failed attempts to start the first round. “We eventually managed to get them out at the third attempt, after making it a one-round competition.” she said. “Shortly after they had all started and the rain had stopped, the wind speed got up to 40mph, the balls were moving on the greens and the gazebo for the starter on the first tee took off and landed halfway down the first fairway! “The Delamere members did a wonderful job in clearing rain from a few greens and all the competitors appreciated the effort that everyone went to and thoroughly enjoyed the course.” Clews (Image © Leaderboard Photography), who is a member of the England Golf women’s squad, was one shot clear of regional squad player Billie-Jo Smith of Lincolnshire and Surrey’s Iona Stephen.

Urban Forestry Restoration Project: Helping our Trees Help Us

first_imgFacebook2Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The City of LaceyThe Urban Forestry Restoration Project, administered by the Washington State Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) Urban and Community Forestry Program, is an exciting opportunity to enhance the capacity of urban forests to manage storm water and improve air and water quality by improving the health and functionality of trees and forested sites in urban settings. Even more exciting is our opportunity to participate in this program here in Lacey at Lake Lois Habitat Reserve.A Puget SoundCorps team will work with City staff to remove the English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, Spurge Laurel, Scotch Broom and Robert’s Geranium from Lake Lois Habitat Reserve during the month of December. These invasive non-native plants prevent forested areas from providing our community the full benefits and services of healthy forests by competing for water and nutrients, and in some cases even killing trees. Many undesirable plants that grow in dense thickets also harbor rats and other vermin, creating a public safety hazard as well. Once the unwelcome plants are gone, native vegetation will be planted in its place.The Lacey Board of Park Commissioners approved the Forest Management Plan for Lake Lois Park and Lake Lois Habitat Reserve in September of 2012. Volunteers have been removing invasive plants and re-planting those areas with native trees to implement the recommendations in the plan.  Paul Royer, Chair of the Park Board states, “Many people are not aware of Lake Lois Habitat Reserve, but once they have been out to volunteer, they realize the importance of what they are doing and the difference it makes in the health of the forest.”To learn more about future volunteer opportunities, contact the Lacey Parks and Recreation Dept. at (360) 491-0857, or Lacey’s official website at www.ci.lacey.wa.us.For more information about the Urban Forestry Restoration Project, visit the Project online or contact Micki McNaughton at (360) 902-1637 or micki.mcnaughton@dnr.wa.gov. DNR’s Urban and Community Forestry Program is made possible through a partnership with the USDA Forest Service. Puget SoundCorps is part of the broader Washington Conservation Corps program administered by Washington Dept. of Ecology. Puget SoundCorps crews work on projects that help restore and protect water quality in Puget Sound. The Washington Conservation Corps is supported through grant funding and Education Awards provided by AmeriCorps.last_img read more
