Volunteers / April 2020 Work Reports
« on: April 01, 2020, 06:52:22 AM »
I'm starting this topic not to necessarily report on work coming up or accomplished, but mainly to keep the continuity of topics.

With Maine's stay at home order for the month of April, it means that the only official thing occurring this month will be the board meeting on the 11th.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

Volunteers / COVID-19 (aka "coronavirus") and the WW&F...
« on: March 15, 2020, 04:32:45 PM »
Forgot to mention - at the board meeting, we did discuss 1918 Spanish Influenza Corona virus related issues (sorry, got caught up in the wrong century), and we have canceled Easter Eggspress.  Other events, such as Spring Work Weekend, will be dependent on what the situation is at the [time of the] April [WW&F BOD] meeting.

[Mod note: Clarified what "April meeting" referred to.]

Volunteers / 2019 offsite volunteer hours
« on: January 01, 2020, 08:08:47 AM »
Happy New Year 2020 everybody!  Now that 2019 is over, it's time for everyone who has off-site hours to please get them to me.  The ideal format would be a date, a beginning and ending time, and what you did; but if all you have is total hours for a month then we'll make it work.

Even before we have those in, we've had a few record months for volunteer hours, and hours for the year nearly match last year's.

Deadline is end of January so that we can work on getting the thank-you's out before the springtime.

Anticipated work for Saturday Oct 5:

* FWW Prep: A crew will be putting out road cloth on the roadbed up to the bridge.  Maybe beyond the bridge if it goes well enough and it's ready.  I'm sure Mike has some last minute prep stuff to do as well.  Ties need to be moved from the parking lot to the staging area.  Rail may need the same.
* B&SR tankcar 14: See Zack.
* Car barn extension: see Brendan, although the concrete may not be strong enough yet to do much.

Moderator Announcements / 4/29/19 outage
« on: April 29, 2019, 06:12:40 PM »
At some point this afternoon the forum crashed, somehow.  Ed told me about it, and after some Googling I found out how possibly to fix it.  Which worked.

No idea what happened, or how.  Hopefully should be stable for a while.
