The week in review
- Folks, I want to say thanks to our volunteer group. In spite of a couple of difficult projects, they came through with flying colors. Heck, everybody showed up, and we're not even getting paid! How cool is that?
The crew have the concrete demolition in the south shell room 96% completed. We'll finish it next week, and the following week, we'll haul the debris (all 30,000 pounds of it!) out of the building and to the recycler. The park has agreed to help us with this, and we should only have to handle this stuff once. This was a physically challenging experiment, and even though we have a very positive result, it's just physically and time wise to arduous. Thanks to Tom Anderson, we had two outfits show up this week to quote on the remaining demolition, which is the overpour in the corridor.
Very well done!
The other project was repairing the hinges on Igloo #6. Fred, Dan and Jack B. did an outstanding job. Three of the four hinges are in place, and the door is secure enough for the up and coming parts storage. Fred has the 4th hinge being repaired, but we'll do that one at our convenience. Remember, this was up in the air, and it was pretty cold this week, and the doors weigh 1200 pounds EACH!! So, again, hats off to an arduous task well done!
Thanks to everyone!
- Great picture!Bev

Folks, we got lots done!!
Fred and the crew got the milling machine back and operational again!! Nicely done!! Glad to see we can pick up where someone else left off.
Bob and Tom worked on improving the lighting in Smith's north corridor. Everything is mounted using existing anchors in the ceiling. Well done!!
We're getting plans together to build a cart for the OB. This is to sell merchandise outside the OB in nice weather.
We're also getting plans together to get our golf carts repainted in gloss OD with decals. Pat B is going to check auto body shops to paint these, as this is a bit outside our skill set, and these need to look first rate.
More work on the doors, etc., for the barracks.
And tons of odds and ends!
Well done, crew!!
