These bridges are bored sitting in my driveway. You should come on Saturday and help install them.
gearhead - if you're still good for Fri to drop off the bridges, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to set up the time.
Although it would be easiest if everyone was there at 8AM to set up the different crews and send them out, feel free to come late, or leave early. If you get to the Lodge and we've already started, I will tell you where we're working. I'm also going to put up some signs to show the way to the three sites.
We decided to assemble all the bridges with all their stringers instead of assembling 1/2 of the stringers onsite. Four of us were able to lift the 16ft bridge, but I'm not going to lie, it is heavy. Six or eight people shouldn't have a problem moving it around.
I have a plan for crews to accommodate any number of volunteers from 8, in which case we probably won't get all three bridges in, up to extremely optimistic numbers of people where we would get all the bridges in, the rest of the flagged route raked and ridable, and garbage and vines cleaned up. If you're planning on coming, could you PM or email me so I can get a better idea of how many people to expect?
I know the deck of he 16ft bridge doesn't look straight, but not all the decking is actually attached to allow spots for people to lift the bridge by the stringers more easily.
