We had a great turn-out for this morning’s work party at the new field. Our goal was to assemble the shade frames and a few other light jobs. The team had that done in less than an hour so we tackled installing all of the roof panels. 400 (maybe 4,000, wait a minute 4,000,000 ) screws later all three shade structures are fully assembled and ready for final placement. THANK TO EVERYONE who helped out this morning.
Here is a picture mid-way through today's work:
We will gather together again this Saturday October 17th from 8:00 – 12:00 to install the pit coverings and move the newly assembled shade structures. We will need many hands to maneuver the rolls of astro-turf into position. Please make every effort to join us on Saturday, many hands will definitely make this light work.
Now... even BIGGER NEWS!! We expect the new runway material to arrive next week. That means we can install it on Saturday October24th. SO, lets plan on it! We are installing US 230 Aeromodeling Fabric from US Fabrics. It comes in 300’ length rolls and as the name says it is designed for outdoor model runways. This will be easier to install than our previous runway material and offer a much better surface to go with our much better location. We will plan to install the runway on Saturday October 24th again starting at 8am.
