9 tons of gravel + 16 rowers = 90 minutes of fun

The wet winter turned parts of our boat place into a mud basin.

Resident engineers Tim and William decided that some grading and a lot of gravel would solve the problem.

9 tons of gravel (or to be precise: crush and run) delivered yesterday (paid for with a generous donation from Richard K. from Canada):

The challenge

15 rowers showed up at daybreak (one engineer an hour later directly from airport) to address the challenge. In a total of 90 minutes they

  • took the boats off the rack
  • moved 2 cubic yards of clay to do the grading
  • spread 9 tons of gravel
  • put the boats back on the rack

How its done? By having fun doing it: there is a row in wheelbarrow:

We thank all 15 rowers!!!

Since we finished unexpectedly quickly, the perfectionist seized the moment and did some house keeping. Thank you very much!!!
