- All of the buildings at the base were checked for / cleared of hazardous substances before being turned over to us. That's part of the contract between the Pentagon and Wall Township. There is some lead-based paint but all that means is you wear a mask when necessary. In this case, 99% of the work is with bare sheetrock.

Our next big work day is Saturday, Feb. 10. This is a joint work day with
the NJHDA (New Jersey Historic Diving Association) since we share our wing
at InfoAge with them. We'll work on demolishing the inside of the 9032-A
wing -- which will become the second event room, right down the hall from
the current event room -- since both MARCH and NJHDA need more space for our
events this spring/summer. Fred, Steve, and I did some "test demolishing"
tonight after the board meeting and it went very well. We developed a good
technique for demolishing without creating too much mess, and for reusing
some of the inside wall materials that we're removing. Best of all, we
found a technique that moves along quickly and without any extreme physical
labor! So with a few of our people and a few of the divers, we can knock
out this whole event room in one solid day. Then the VCF East 4.0 can be
literally TWICE as big this year than last year. It will also be an impress
project that MARCH can take some credit for on behalf of InfoAge --
something that's good for the whole museum, not just for our club.
I might also call for one or two informal work days this month, to be
By the way, if anyone happens to be around at random times, then try to ping
me or Steve or Fred -- there are always small projects that need doing, but
there are never enough people to do them!
