We were able to walk to the gazebo in October, 2014. In
April 2015, we needed a gondola, but couldn’t find one.

  2. 2. Member’s Bounce! We happened to go to the West Baden Springs Hotel in French Lick, Indiana in October, 2014. Whenever I see anything that has to do with the PGA, I take pictures of it to send to fellow blogger, and all-around great guy, Rick Williams, PGA, http://mindbodygolf.wordpress.com I had no idea how significant this display was until I came home and looked at the full—sized pictures. I sent the pictures to Rick in a blog post called “This One’s for You, Rick Williams” http://lesliejochase.com/2015/01/25/this-ones-for-you-rick-williams-pga/
