The weather was OK - no rain, warm but very windy.  We got a lot done with only 7 showing up for our Annual Work Day.

My hats off to Brandt, Mark S., Roger, Tim & Kat and Travis for coming out.  A far cry from last year where we had 60+ show up.  We even got some newspaper time last year.  I don't know what happened this year...Rick and I got the word out, but I guess everyone else was busy.

I'll try to post some photos pretty soon.

Next work days for the Batfish are:

~ Saturday, April 18th @ 9 AM
~ Saturday, May 2nd @ 9 AM

FYI - May 2nd is our 10th Annual Volunteer Workday where we get the park ready for the upcoming reunion.  I need everyone and anyone claiming to be a Batfish Volunter to man-up and come out on the 2nd.  We have a lot to do and only a few hands that show up.  Show some respect for our Batfish Veterans and come out.  I'm pretty sure lunch will be provided (am checking on that now) so will need a head count.

Thanks to all

Sounds like a plan.  I bet the weather will even be nice.

How many boards did you get to put down on Saturday?

We (Tim, Roger, Bradley Baker and I) got down about 17 boards and completed the area by the A/C units (minus a few boards because Rick is having an electrician come out and move the power box...so we had to leave some room - will finish on the 2nd).

We also finished a smaller section of 1/2 length boards a bit forward of that.  I promise to post some photos when I get home tonight.

Next time, we plan to prep, pull bolts and start putting deck down aft of where we've been working.  the plans are to make a walk-way on the starboard side from where they come on the boat to where we've got it completed.  Then we'll hopefully have the Guard guys come out again and kick @$$ on the old deck that remains.

so I'll make my plug now...who is coming on the 2nd?  Free Lunch (I've heard it's BBQ).  And Lance - No excuses...I expect you to be there.

You know that I'll be there on the 2nd.

Makes sense to keep continuing aft.  First impressions count and it will be nice to have visitors see a nice, new deck when they first come aboard.

May 2nd is quickly approaching.  I have 5 and maybe 1 more that have indicated they will show up.

Please consider coming out on the 2nd.  We have a lot to do...plus free food.

Hope to see you there.

Lance - I'll help you unpack...there is a house to rent just down the street from me.

Rain, Rain, Rain.

Tim and Bradley worked on getting a wall up in Ricks office to secure artifacts.

Ed and I did get many bolts pulled from the supports until the weather just too bad to be out in it.

Brandt worked in the FTR cleaning up the previously pulled bolts.

Tim's wife and my wife worked the front counter, cleaned and organized.

Rick sat around and then bought us Pizza   Shocked

Really wish it would stop raining...what's it been...2 weeks straight?
