Week In Review: July 28th - August 1st

Tyler DuBord: Facility Services Manager

Summer is upon us! We’ve been busy with several types of projects including parking lot maintenance, lawn care, carpet cleaning, etc. Summer is also a good time to begin talking about snow removal. As much as I dislike talking about cold and snow this early in the year, we’re better off getting bids out now and logistics handled prior to the snow flying! We all live in Minnesota where we know the weather can be more unpredictable than the Vikes scoring a touchdown.
 
Fortunately, I’ve been able to get the boat on the water and enjoy some of the nicer weather we’ve had this summer. Memorial weekend we brought it up to Lake Vermillion and had a blast. The weather was excellent and the boat ran great. As a bonus, we caught fish and cooked some nice walleye! Of course playing golf is one of my biggest enjoyments. I’ve played about 40 rounds already this year which started in Cozumel, Arizona, then a ton of rounds back here in MN. I am in a Tuesday night league where we’ve found ourselves in 2nd place ¾ the way through the season. Last year we made it to the Championship round but to fall to a good team. That was our first year in the league so we’re looking to bounce back strong again this year.
