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!

Takes a huge load off of our setting up time.Folks, lots going on!
The painting of T604 really makes the place pop!! Congrats to the crew for bringing this home. The place looks amazing!!
We completed the remaining parts of the power project for T600 and T601. It's so nice having the overhead lines gone and out of everyone's way. Another plus, the park saves some $$$ as there is one less power meter charge every month!!
We started the art room walls, and they look great. Furthermore, this went WAY faster than the previous efforts. We need to fix one of the posts, and we should be done Thursday morning. Nicely done!
Today, our guys worked with Mike Hills and got a lot of cleanup and landscaping done. Another great collaboration!! When the barracks sit for a year, the leaves, dust, cobwebs, bugs, etc., really accumulate. We even vacuumed the glass!! Nicely done, but more to do.
Harry is putting together a project plan to restore the 90mm gun. Time to make this an organ ized and official project!! Tom A has already obtained quotes for sandblasting, removing the old tires and getting new tires. Once we have a plan organized, we'll submit it and figure out where to get the $$$, and start!!
And loads of other odds and ends!! Thanks!
