Tee Up A Design For Your Dream Golf Course In The South End

WPB Golf Course

This Thursday’s SENA meeting will address one big topic: What would South End Residents and those who utilize the golf course like the city to put into a request for proposal for the possible development of the golf course.

A request for proposal (RFP) is a type of bidding solicitation in which the City announces that funding is available for a particular project or program, and companies can place bids for the project’s completion. Think of this as an opportunity to create a “wish list” of ideas that the City can use as a benchmark to help them draft the RFP. This can include things like: where should the entrance be, what size clubhouse, what amenities at the clubhouse, etc.

Need inspiration to get your started? Check out a drone video of the course here.

The meeting will be

Thursday July 7th,
6:30 pm

Run and Fun In the Southend This Saturday

It’s a Saturday filled with activity and adventure in the Southend this weekend.

Pound your protein smoothie and throw on your running shoes for the Stacey Konwiser Memorial Save the Tiger 5K  at the Palm Beach Zoo. This year’s race is all the more special as it pays tribute to the life of the Zoo’s beloved Lead Keeper and her love of all cats…especially tigers.

race

In honor of Stacey, Team AC-27, named after her radio call sign and comprised of several zookeepers and other staff, will also be running and walking in the race. Team AC-27’s ‘virtual team’ is now comprised of 120 people across 17 states! There will also be a ‘Remembrance Table’ in the fountain area where attendees can leave notes of encouragement for Stacey and her loved ones.

You’ll run or walk through the beautiful paths of Dreher Park and finish the race inside the Palm Beach Zoo passing the Tiger River habitat where 2 of the Zoo’s 4 Malayan tigers reside. You’ll also run past wallabies, Fennec foxes, New Guinea singing dogs, ocelots, and siamang gibbons on your way to the finish line at the fountain plaza.

Your registration includes admission to the Zoo for the day and discount coupons for friends and family to see you finish and explore the Zoo for the day. And, for the first time ever, every runner/walker registered will receive a shirt. (Note: The first 650 registered will be able to pick up their shirt at a packet pickup location or at race day check-in. Everyone from #651 on will get their shirt after race day.)

The Malayan tiger is the most endangered of the 5 remaining species of tigers. It’s estimated that there are fewer than 250 in the wild. The Palm Beach Zoo works closely with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), supporting species and habitat research and protection at Endau-Rompin National Park in Malaysia. A portion of each participant’s race registration fee helps fund the Zoo’s involvement with WCS.

Awards will be given in the following categories:
Top 3 Overall Male & Female
Top 3 Masters Male & Female
Top 3 Male ages 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+
Top 3 Female ages 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80
