Kevin : I assume you have heard about the Practice Field here off Rainier
in Seattle. I have helped there Sat and today..it is moving along great
with the huge help of one mentor and a few key team members. Also today
there were at least ten folks building and assembling.
Do you wish or need any suggestions as to tools, total workforce and such.
I am thinking I could send or get you some pictures and even copies of cut
drawings the mentor here has already done ..you know to either save you
time or to use a double chk your calcs and cutlists etc.
Like for the midField bumper things and etc.
I have only been assembler and carpet roll out so perhaps all the cut
lists are spec'd out on the FiRST supplied drawings.
Also are you aware of source of free carpet, like the Habitat for HUmanity
on 99 down around Harbor island ( on Idaho street) Last i looked they had
half doz rolls sitting outside for the taking, low loop/pile. ( also have
5$ / yd inside much.
So your build weekend is before Feb 13/14 or?
Let me know I could perhaps help if need be?
Brogan, a volunteer down in Seattle, Field supervisor for few yrs.
OH I see next weekend as in Feb 6..7th I will be out of town then whoops
