The following members were at the camp and putting in a full work day Saturday:
- Craig sprayed almost all of the food plots to get them ready for planting in about a month. Craig returned today to finish what fields he didn’t get the first time. You will notice that all “historically planted plots” were not sprayed. Some of the plots are simply non-starters, in our opinion. If a favorite plot didn’t get sprayed, let us know and we can still do something, but we had to knock down the massive growth that was in the plots and so we have hit the most heavily utilized plots.
- Joe and the Lewis brothers hit all the windfalls mentioned as well as cleared Pine Log road back and they were still at it headed down River Road and Hill Road when I left at almost five o’clock.
- Joe and I put a hasp/latch on the old dog food cabinet and put the combination lock on.
- Boo and Chase used Boo’s tractor with box blade and bucket to clean up the Cedar Tree road and also Middle Tree road so that Craig can get to it with the sprayer. Unfortunately the boom sprayer would not fit in between the high banks on Middle Tree with the ruts not helping, so Middle Tree field didn’t get dosed. We’ll have to use an ATV sprayer if anyone has one. Needs to be sprayed in the next two weeks or not at all to be in the 30 day window and our Oct 15 planting date.
- Boo and Chase used the bucket on Boo’s tractor to pull up the posts on the old Ricky/James deck. Pretty good trick Boo, I was impressed. I have a video I will post of Boo yanking those posts. Those posts are good and can be used for something. Allen (De) may use them to cover his porch he is working on for this trailer he is bringing down. The lumber underneath the old deck is all good, it was apparently treated lumber (yellow tag) and being covered, it has held up good. If you want any of it, you better get it quick because Joe will be pushing off into a gully next weekend with the bulldozer. How much does a 2×4 or 4×4 post cost these days?
Remaining work day schedule.
- September 3-4 Joe said the bulldozer is nearby and the next place it is coming is to Ragsdale. All I can say is Halleleujah! We need it! Those details will be up to Joe but this is the weekend we had planned, depending on weather.
- September 10-11 This is our backup, rain day or fall back day for the road work as a contingency for bad weather near or on the weekend of September 3-4
- September 24-25 Bow hunting plots planted. We had planned to have a conference call on this, but as no one participated in the last call, we’re not doing any more. We have some plans.
- October 15-16 Planting day, the fields will be planted and we intend for our fish fry to be around 1:30 to 2:00 on Sunday the 16th
Larry has removed the keyed locks to have them rekeyed. We didn’t have another lock to put on it with a key with me at the time but we do have another keyed lock which will be put on the main gate next week.
I am very encouraged by the talent and hard work ethic displayed this past work day. Good job!
I think I should remind everyone that three full work days are in the bylaws or it is a $100 fine per deficit day. The club is keeping accurate, observed and objective records.
