FIELD CLEAN-UP APRIL 27 - ROLL CALL-
« on: April 16, 2019, 10:11:23 pm »
Let's support Graham in his field clean-up effort.  To slowly wake up I will be at the Tim's at Woodbine by 8:30 so my eyes can be open by 9:15 and drive to the field for the 9:30 field clean-up party.

Bring your boots, shovels, rakes and... oh, yes... a sense of humour. ;)  Yes, I will be wading in the creek to clean it up.  It's in my DNA.

I will be at Tim's no matter the weather.  If it is pouring we will be able to make the tough decisions in a dry place close to the field.  ;D ;D

The final go/no go will be made by Graham.

One week to go and I'm the only one showing up besides Graham, our dedicated Field Operations Manager. 
That can't be good for Graham or TEMAC. ;) ;) ;D ;D

@Frank v B , Don't be such a worry wort. 

On April 27th, I am hoping there will be a lot more support for Graham than last year.  I would like to see the line get longer!

I am planning to attend.  Wondering if it might also be useful to bring my weedeater (assuming it started this year lol) to work along the fences at the pilot stations etc.

Excellent idea Larry.  I am sure it will be useful around the creek area.

Hey everyone,

I crawled out of hibernation and checked out the field yesterday.  The ground is quite saturated in the parking lot, pit area, and the runway.  I made a futile attempt to roll the runway but gave up after a few passes due to excessive water underneath it.

With the forecast for more rain tomorrow, I think it is best to keep vehicular and foot traffic off the parking lot, pits and runway.  We need a few straight days of sunshine to dry things out.

So I am sorry to say that the Spring clean up is postponed to 04/May at 09:30am.

(Thanks to all of those responding enthusiastically to Frank’s call to duty!  I do hope you can make it out on the first Saturday in May.)

Cheers,
Graham

Hi Graham. I was afraid of that. I will not be able to make it on May 4th and I feel bad about it, but we are leaving on our first post retirement trip early on the 4th and will be away for 2 weeks. I am excited about going away, but sorry that I will miss both the field cleanup and Maiden Fest.
What could possibly go wrong?

Unlike Rob, I'm glad for the change.  Hopefully, the weather will be much better, and next week will be better for me as I wasn't able to make it this weekend.

Also, it'll allow me to get to the field and maybe do some flying   :o

Poor Rob... Not being able to clean the field 'cause he's going on vacation   :'(

We are going to try to come out on May 4th then, was thinking it was tomorrow but good thing I checked the forum!  Won't get there until probably 10:30 though (after swim practice).  Maybe Ethan and Tory, maybe Alex and Eli too.  We'll try to find rubber boots big enough for growing teenager feet :)

Tim's will have to do without us this week. 
Same time next week.  8:30 at Tim's, 9:30 at the field.
Short-sell Tim's stock!

Hello Frank, Graham, et al,

With the rain we got over the last couple of days, will the filed cleanup go ahead today?

Please post a current status if you would.
