    We took a look at the new pond in Carrollton this weekend. We put in the boats, drove around, checked out the amenities.



    The parks department in Carrolton is one of the best I have worked with so far. They are very enthusicastic about having us out there and will be making improvements on the pond in the future.



    We hope to have 1 or 2 events out next year.



    Here are some of the pictures, the rest you can get from google earth.

    Here is a view directly above the two cypress trees. Th Pit area is immediately south in the grass under the trees just outside the outfield.

    High water is said to be no more than 6ft, water level was not high when we were there and it was estimated to be 5ft. During the October battle we will need floats (same as Nats this year) and we will have access to a flat bottom aluminum boat for retrieval.



    Looks great so far and its in a metropolitan area, lots of hotel and food options.



    We should be able to work out the rest soon, and put it on the schedule



    See you there
