 Well, some of you missed an opportunity to start the construction of our grand picnic shelter at the FNBWA clubhouse. As you can see from the photo, it involves considerable work. Gary is the "brains" and a lot of the "brawn" behind the project, but he had two old codgers for helpers, Mark and me. There are ten 12' poles and two 14' poles, all 6" x 6" and treated and were really heavy. Holes are about 3 1/2' deep and 2’ in diameter, all dug by hand with shovel and posthole digger. Of course everything has to be squared up and kept level so there's lots of measuring and checking with several levels and Mark's laser. Menards is supposed to deliver the trusses and metal roofing sheets sometime this coming week.
