Non member helping with the weed whacking/mowing Chanoa Lynn. She was driving by & saw Jeff, Skip, Morgan, & Mike weed whacking & stopped to help. She spent most of the day working on our club grounds.
Working on the towplane for the day was Martin Caskey, Jim Rickey & Karl Kunz. Sergio Grajeda was the 'utility man' helping with the towplane & the weed whacking or anywhere he could, as he usually does. The weed whacking crew consisted of Mike Paoli, Jeff Richardson, Morgan Hall, Skip Breidbach & Sergio.
Chanoa cleaned up the front around all the palm trees. Rick Eason & Kevin Shaw worked to disassemble the Blanik & get it on the trailer with Richard Walker & John Harbick helping loading. John also picked up all the bags of weed clippings from in front of the patio & loaded them in his truck.
Richard spent the day cleaning the sink area in the clubhouse in preparation for removal of sink, cabinets and drywall due to mold.
I didn't arrive until about 10:00 am but spent his time mowing Runway 8 again. The weeds and grass were still green and four or five inches high. I also mowed a pathway for the towplane/towrope from the pylon to the runway. That provides a path for the towrope & towplane so the towplane won't drag the towrope through the weeds. I left with the tractor in tow about 6:00 pm.
After the work Kevin & Sergio went flying in Kevin's Tarus motor glider for a couple of hours.
