hecko everyone! A clean-up day has been scheduled thanks to all the great offers to be there! I know that many of you really want the track to open this season and so would I. Nothing yet has been set in stone for 2013 but hopefully soon.
Clean-up Day #1 will be March 9th from 10am to 3pm.
There is nothing at the track to work with so if you can, please bring supplies and equipment.
Things that need to be done:
Trees need to be cut and trimmed.
Guardrail needs to be moved to starting line.
6 boards need to be replaced on grandstands.
Hand rail on grandstands needs repair/replaced.
Concession has some repairs that need to be done.
Would love to paint but have no paint at this time.
Trash needs to be hauled away (before 12 on Saturday)
A few ditches need cleaning to accelerate drainage.
Would love to paint grandstands, concession, starting line and window sills of the tower. Need paint and supplies.
There is a leak on one window in the tower that needs to be tracked down, repaired and the floor may need some attention.
Again there is nothing there to work with except water and electric.
Chainsaws, fuel, oil
If I remember correctly, the guardrail has 1" bolts. (It was installed behind concession and is no longer in use and the start line must have a safety barrier for the start line personnel.
Need 6 treated boards for grandstands - correct size to be posted since I haven't replaced any in 8 years.
Handrail - 1 inch tubing is now used. It doesn't have to be completely replaced but has rotten in several location.
Would love to see you and get the track property looking lots better.
Post if you plan to join us and tell us what you can bring on the 9th!
I appreciate each of you.
