Thanks to all the guys that came out last Saturday to help clean up the field property. We made a very good impression with the land owners! I met with the owner this morning and went over what is left to be done.
He has agreed to supply a front end loader and an operator for this Saturday so that we can deal with some of the larger items. This is a very good thing, because it means we won't have to pay for the rental. Bottom line is that we should take advantage of this oportunity to use the equipment and operator.

If you don't know where our field is, you take the Tooele exit off I-80, and take the very first right, which is an overpass that leads to an apparent dead-end, called "Hardy Road". If you reach the McDonald's, you've gone too far. It's right before the Chevron. The field isn't open for flying yet, even for club members (gotta clean the site and arrange for the locks), but if we work hard at it, we may be able to get it ready so that at the start of next flying season, it's available.
The following message is from Wade regarding this Saturday's field clean-up:
