Thanks again for your investment and dedication to J-Park, Kevin. I am personally in favor of keeping 9 DB-5s on the course as a tribute, but if there's a better way to serve the Town's purchase, I certainly wouldn't be opposed to it. A few new updates with respect to the basket project:
I picked up the first 19 baskets from Powmat with the help of Earl. Another huge thanks to Earl and his employer, Powmat, for facilitating the receiving of the baskets and contributing an additional $1000 towards the fund!
Thanks to JWinn for help unloading too. We will do a test run this weekend with the practice basket, and I hope to have a larger scale workday on April 22 and April 23, weather depending. I obtained a large hammer drill to use but had to order a large-enough coring bit to accommodate the new sleeves. I plan on purchasing the remaining materials this weekend to make sure we're all good to go.
The J-Park Discs turned out great and we sold the majority of them the first night. Big thanks to Mel for contributing the design and supporting the fund. The J-park donation jar has also been hard at work thanks to Michigan Jeff. I will update the fund balance shortly to include all of the recent fundraising and donations. If you are available on April 22 or April 23, not playing in the monthly and would like to help out, please let me know. Right now the extended forecast looks perfect for installation.
