Saturday Aug 25th is Field Preperation Day

posted Aug 25, 2012, 4:31 AM by Andy Martin

Saturday, August 25th, is field lining and preparation day. There will be two work sessions, one in the morning, and another in the afternoon.

Morning session: Meet at Pillow Elementary School at 9 a.m.  for a quick orientation session. Then work crews of coaches/team managers/parents will tackle Burnet, Pillow, Lucy Read and Cook shortly after an orientation session. 8 to 10 team members at each facility will help make this task go quickly and efficiently. We usually finish up the morning fields before noon. 

Afternoon session: Meet at the NASA Club House at 9211 Research Blvd. Work crews in the afternoon will tackle RSP, Quarry and St Francis.

Take a look at how it's done:

Experienced volunteers will be there to help get you started. Please do not assume that someone will volunteer if you don't. The really cool part of this is that you will finally get to apply the pythagorean theorem that you learned so many years ago. And we have already done all the math! Take a look at how it's done:

We will have a complete lining kit available for every location, but additional useful tools would include a claw hammer, a pocket knife, work gloves, 100 foot and 300 foot tape measures. And of course, the most valuable contribution is your time.

All ages are welcome!
