Hello all, hope things are Good !!
Went down today at the pit at my shooting range but I had a look at our field !!!
Well Mr. Winter has done a little number on it !!!!!!
1--- The front support on the shelter has given way and the roof has fallen in / the roof panel still good so far ??
2--- Wacor has taken back one of the culvert boxes we used as a table, this is no big deal.
It is the one farthest from the shelter and now there is a small pile of snow and sand built up there from them plowing for use.
It will melt and we can smooth it out later, again no big deal !!.
3---The nails down the middle of the runway has popped up ( about a 1/2" to 1 " ) like last year due to the water under the landing strip freezing and lifting them up / plus there maybe more ???
4--- There is a bit of sand, dirt, and mud all over the runway etc.
Now all this can be fixed easy, so if you guys have a little time over the next while and have some old long 2x4's, screws and nails or a blower/brooms etc and you have the expertise in doing these things. I know your help would be appreciated !!!
I plan as things dry out a bit ( it is still very wet ) to hammer the nails back in with my mini hand sledgehammer as Peter and I did last year.
Hope to see some of you down at the field flying etc. over the next while, weather permitting !!!!
Just wanted to share a couple of pictures of the flying field. Put some skis on my RV-8. It was amazing! About a foot of snow out there still. Bumped into a guy in a front end loader clearing the gravel road. He said he would go up and clear our parking lot! The roof on the shelter held up under the snow load. Cheers Bob
