The boxes used to carry out club bowls to the greens were unwieldy and falling apart. We never knew when the handles might give out or the boxes would split, sending bowls rolling everywhere. We had no skilled woodworkers among our members. Enter a Boy Scout in need of a project to apply for his Eagle Scout ranking.
Brian Babbe, Troop 295 of San Diego, took on the project of making new boxes for us. In order for his project to meet Scout requirements, Brian had to meet with us to learn our requirements, design the boxes, earn money to pay for the materials, put together and supervise a team of workers to build the boxes, and put on all the finishing touches.
The result was 23 brand new, stackable boxes, making better use of our bowls shed space. Why only 23 boxes, rather than 24, you ask? Well, Brian explained that one went by the wayside when he used his dad's tape to measure out the pieces and he discovered that the tape was off by 1/8 of an inch.
Another Scout in Brian's troop, Josh Hicok, is in the process of making new scoreboards for us, too.
Here is a photo of Brian and the new boxes.
