Hi folks, Three saws are ready for Sat wood cutting. If the weather cooperates and we have a good group we may get to the wood road crossing. Lets hope!

This week -

* Shop - Jason, Jonathan and the crew worked on vacuum brake parts and computer design.

* Kubota - Mike worked on the engine, he may post an update on the Kubota thread.

* Archives - Linda worked on more catalogue programs.

* Kitchen - Cindy and the kitchen crew picked up supplies for more great lunches.

* Cutting crew - Fred cleaned and sharpened the saws and replenished the fuel and oil for Saturday.

* Photo Charter - A production train ran to TOM and back on Weds with a crew of 9.  Photo locations, line set ups and angles were scouted for the March 25th Excursion.  Weeds/brush will be cleared in a few photo locations.  Of note is that the Excursion is sold out, anyone who missed out on the 3/25 trip may reserve seats on the next Extra which is planned for Thursday, April 28th.

* Comm - A new data feed was run to the freight house to extend WiFi to the gift shop.  A wireless router was purchased and tested on Thursday.  The equipment is for a new sales and inventory control system for the gift shop.  The system uses a tablet to ring up sales, the tablet is tied to a receipt printer that controls the cash drawer.  The new system will display inventory levels and deduct merchandise as it is sold.  Set up and test runs are planned for Monday.

* website updates - Recent News, ticket Prices and Museum Events 2016, with major help from James P.

I'm guessing there were several other accomplishments this week.  Always a lot going on behind the scenes.

Also;

  * The Back Forty at TOM was walked this afternoon, location of the corner pins were marked with GPS so they can be found from across Trout Brook. I gained access through the SVCC land that comes up to West Alna Rd. An old skidder road almost takes you to our land.

Paid some bills and did some work on the volunteer letters.  Trying to mail merge on a non-MS Office program, not easy.

Augusta show report: We had good sales, mostly of donated model material.  Maybe around $300 or so sales, which is good for that show.
