BRINGING IN FILL (ROUND ONE)

August 27 & 28, 2008

Since the building site is in the flood plain, fill must be brought in to bring the floor of the groomer garage up to the proper elevation.  This is the first round of filling.  More will be needed once the walls are poured.
 
The tractors of Gene Knox and Louise Stickney are ready to begin leveling the fill as it is delivered.  Bob Stickney gets ready to set up his theodolite to check levels.
 

Jim Knight (center) stopped in to check on the progress. 

Bob Stickney is on the left and Gene Knox on the right.

 
Gene tells Kevin Knox where to dump the next load of fill.
 
Here comes another load!
 
Louise and Gene get to work leveling the fill.

Fern Dumoulin  clears the underbrush from the area

between the building site and Route 2.

 

The supervisors!  It's a tough job,

but somebody's got to do it!

 

By mid-day of the second day of the filling operation, levels around

the footer trenches were considerably higher ...

 
... and the planking for making the footer forms was delivered.
 
The end of day two of bringing in fill ...
 
... and it's time to load up the tractors and head home.  Thanks go to Rob Cameron for letting the Club use his trailer to haul the tractors back and forth!
