I just got the go ahead for some materials from Home Depot this week. This Sunday at 10:00 am, we are going to be installing the steel sleeves and tee sign posts, moving rail road ties, forming the ties into tee boxes, laying down weed mat inside the boxes, and moving rail road crossing ties into place as bridges. Materials/tools needed: heavy duty staple gun and staples to install the weed mat, heavy duty scissors to cut the weed mat, 1/2 inch one foot installer bit and cordless drill/heavy duty drill to completely drill through whole fromt the spikes, mini/sledge hammers to pound the rebar through the ties into the ground, chainsaw to cut the ties, tools to remove stumps left over form the brushog, buckets to carry water to the holes for mixing concrete. My father is bringing his heavy duty gas generator to run the drills so if you have a 1/2 wide one foot long installer bit and drill please bring it.
If anyone has a dual axle trailor and truck I have more ties and limestone that I need to pick up this week. Please let me know if you can help with the truck/trailor this week. IF I get these extra materials, there are some spots that we could lay more ties to prevent erosoin like in the DU. The limestone would be thrown in a water shed creek/run off and hopeful preserve the efforts that were made earlier this summer when we ran the bobcat through that area.
If we have another big turn out, we could get this course up and running by the first of October. The Chiefs are off this Sunday so it is a great chance for you to come out and support your sport.

Thanks, John Theiss
