Hangar Packing: 9 Nov

Post by John Brake » Thu Oct 24, 2019 4:50 pm

I'd like to arrange for the small hangar packing and the large hangar reorganisation for the winter.

Please reserve 9 November for the work day, starting at 11 am. If it's raining, we'll delay until the 16th.

See you there!
John

Should be a bright sunny day tomorrow, temperature around 15-20C, winds 10-15kts from the NW.

Oops! Sorry that's Arthur, Nebraska.

It's almost like that here now, except windier and colder.

The usual band of suspects turned up to close up the club in what could best be described as brutal conditions. 10-15kts at -2C required the very least amount of skin to be exposed when outside the hanger. Those of us closer to 80 than 60 were rapidly drained of energy. Never have so many owed so much to so few, springs to mind.

I have never seen Paul pack the main hanger so tightly, it's going to be interesting trying to do the reverse in a few months.

You won't have to wait that long....
Next weekend Rob wants to pull out the towplanes and winterize them, and then repack.
And if you weren't there, you don't realize that EBI is still out for its annual, so there will be another aircraft to shoehorn in after the winterization.

Hopefully Rob will indicate which day he is doing it, as help will be required. I will be unable to attend, so please try to help out.

Oh, Good grief - I just hope it gets warmer! Long Range shows it warmer after the 19th.
