That was the inspection crew. 😀 Dwight and James were with me all day, with a mid afternoon visit by Bob C., Al Cook, Zack and Dave B. for his presidential inspection..

So, were Zack, Bob, and Al serving as Dave's Secret Service detail? :o

I understand that the Pavilion is a little short of funds for materials to complete due to this years Covid situation.  Without being an official fundraiser, if you have a few bucks to send in via the website (note it for Pavilion), or mail a check, it would be greatly appreciated.

The Pavilion will be one of the requests in this year's Annual Fund Drive.

Lumber prices are going up almost weekly. We could use the extra money..

I know in my area 2 x 8, 2 x 10, etc. pressure treated pine boards are double in price from a year ago.  Some home builders are either holding off or charging a lumber surcharge to keep up with the prices.  Throw a few bucks in guys so the Pavilion doesn't need to be in the annual fundraiser  -  we have more than enough projects that are waiting in line.

In February I priced the 2 replacement posts at $62 each. I picked up the 2 we needed at $97 a piece.. That is over a 50% increase in less than 6 months..

I am in the process of replacing (all) ties on my 7 1/2 gauge Bountyland Railway with ground contact rated 2x4's. 
I'm paying about $5 per each 8 foot 2x4 which yields 4 ties so they are costing me a buck 25, each.... and I need a lot of them.
Ouch!

We had a great crew today, lots of help. Got the 2 remaining (new) posts cut and stood in place, then put up the headers.

Mike,
        It is great to see your project moving ahead again! At least in August you will not have to worry about frozen ground the way you did last year!

I don't like to think of it as my project. It is our project.
