We need 4-6 good strong people to help pre assemble the

"WALL OF DEATH"

and

"THE BUS HOP"

Building skills not necessary but could help, anyone with structural skills would be good too.

If you have a chainsaw bring it.

Post here if you can help

Be at Anvil Protection at 6:30 Wednesday January 14

#5 19351 94th Ave Surrey (Port Kells)

More questions call me

Tom,

My little germ factories have brought disease into the house. If I am not still infected on Wednesday, I'll bring a chain saw and a positive attitude.

Thank you to those members that came out last night with good spirits, great ideas and tools in hand (I think almost everyone brought a chainsaw)

  • Greg (Big Booger)
  • Ken (Good 350R)
  • Bob (bobhami)
  • Bill (wjm)
  • Bren (drzsms)
  • Graham (mayham)
  • John V
  • Ted
  • the other fellow who's name I didn't get
Tom and Ted got started on the Bus roof before we got there





After Tom moved the bus out of the shop plans began to formulate for the Wall of Death. Once a plan wasfigured outthings started happening all over the place













Just to get an idea of how tall and at what angle the wall was at they put a temporary deck on half of it.



Since we had some time left we even got around to building the ramps for the DSBC booth display!!



Bren was the official structure tester



A HUGE chunk of work got done last night. Thanks everyone :dr:

Thanks to those people that came out to help on Saturday:

  • Graham
  • John
  • Bren
  • Bill
  • Sharon
  • Alex
  • John V
We started the day off by bringing a load of lumber and track obstacles to Tradex.







Then we went to Randy and Dee's place and picked up a huge load of logs. Thanks to Darren and the use of his truck and crane it made the job a whole lot easier (however at times it appearred that safety was NOT an issue!!)











At times it was best to keep your distance





The logs were then delivered to the Tradex. Thanks the the tent guys we were able to get our hands on their forklift and get those logs off loaded quickly.









Check out the rest of the photos in the photo gallery at http://www.dualsportbc.com/photogallery/showgallery.php?cat=788&password=&page=1

The final lift of 4x6s left from my shop today and are on their way to the Tradex, so everything should be there.

Note the weather at the Tradex compared to Port Kells, hope it holds

Anyone recognise these gloves
