PostSubject: Kitchener field update   Sun Aug 06, 2017 8:22 pm

And so, the work continues as we build toward the big weekend in Sept.  

This post is going to be a long one with lots of pics so sit back and enjoy... 

I can't say enough about my partner in crime Ed, or knispel as he is known on the forum.Without him this project would just be too much for me. The man spent 4 hours today weed whacking the entire field. He handled that weed whacker like a surgeon! But the results are spectacular as you can see here below. 







Also Ed made the most awesome telephone poles to go on the field and brought his big concrete bit to drill holes. We will be working on stringing the lines in the next few weeks.



Here is a shot of the tunnel completed with stone framing courtesy of Derek...





I have been making sandbags and concrete bunkers. The bunkers out of plastic take out containers. They don't look too bad...  Very Happy








And the V-1 launch ramp will be under construction next week and in the meantime 3 rockets are being built...



And last I leave this for you guys to guess what is being built here... scratch

Don't forget about Castle Itter.
There seems to be great potential for a great battle scenario but I will leave that up to the experts in the field .
Looking forward to the battle
plan.

No you can hide a tank inside through the back and poke the barrel out the front.

Admittance to the airshow is $7.00 per day and we would ask that you "donate" $25.00 for the weekend to our club. Oshawa sales of the tickets with a free t-shirt went over very well and those funds have been used up to strip the field and some other costs for things like round up. Our next big project is we are looking on Monday at a "clubhouse" trailer to store all our stuff that would be permanently parked beside the gazebo. We also hope to have the water feature up and running for airshow weekend as well as a couple of other surprises...

Full information on the weekend to come in a couple of weeks...

And for our next step the purchase of a storage/club house trailer. It's going to take some work but the price was right and will be delivered this Saturday... thumbs up I'm thinking camo for the outside and we will gut the inside and do some wiring for power, probably get a little fridge, BBQ and we will be good to go! As always any donations greatly appreciated to help cover purchase costs and reno!

Have microwave, coffee maker, air conditioner, will look for fridge as the one that is in it is no good, Have outdoor speakers to be mounted. Yes, was thinking of camo. With red cross would make it interesting for sure. On the mice and critters thinking small electric fence around the bottom of the trailer and of course we will rip out all piping, toilet, shower, and seal everything up with expanding foam. I did a quick inspection of the roof and only leakage I can see is around the air unit but we will fix that. Like I said, lots of work to do...

Will we be allowed to have the unit hooked up to power at the club? Recommend at least 14ga wire extension cords if 75' away, and 12ga if 100' away from source. That will allow us to keep a full 15A draw at the trailer. AC requires an addition al 15A (30A minimum service) so I'd just either remove it, or completely seal it up.


My 2 thoughts. If semi-permanent.
Jack up the whole unit and block it up on the frame. Removing the wheels (Store in back or someplace.)

  • That removes any reliance on the suspension for stability.
  • Allows for increase elevation for cutting any grass/weeds that would grown around it.
  • Easier maintenance of any openings underneath.

Rip out the sleeping areas and make work stations.

  • Soldering guns, moving lights, cutting mats, etc...


I would keep the roof as light a colour as possible for heat. However, putting a big Can-Am logo on top has it's appeal as well. Smile

I would hope that this is done (external looks) before the September airshow, or is being done away from public view. Having a dilapidated trailer sitting there half torn up with hundreds of people going by = bad juju and looks bad on the club (IMHO) and they club has been nice enough to let us do pretty much whatever we want to their property...
