Big News!! Tell EVERYONE! As of today and according to Club Manager Bob Hoener, Hollinger's projected "close for the season" date is November 1st, NOT mid-October!
Thank the warm weather forecast, and spread the word (not everyone does the social media thing . . .).

As always, if the weather proves uncooperative, the date may change. Stay tuned, get out there, and Play the Clay!
