Status of other sites
Crown Basin – this is completed (upgraded from the previous model) and is open for use. Until we get the booking system organised please email me.
Vanguard, Saint Just and Mt. Hyde – the Turks are in place but not commissioned. About 3 hours per Turk is required for completion. I am hoping to get this done before the end of the month.
Deep Creek/Coronet Saddle – foundation requires completion (2 hours work for a team of 4) then the Turk installed.
All-in-all we are almost there. I am currently watching the weather and trying to find a settled enough period to fly in the remaining Turks. My challenge is the current variability of the weather and the need to plan several days in advance with certainty.
Zane Kerse (Club Treasurer) and myself spent last Tuesday evening working through the membership list making sure we have people’s details correct. Another work session should see everything in order and we will be in a position to send out proper receipts/membership. Apologies for the delay – the issue rests entirely with me and is because I have prioritised building Turks over doing admin (might also be that I prefer making things to working on a spreadsheet!).
We are making the final changes to the booking system and hope to have this live within the next week.
A thought of safety
A concern/nightmare for any small enclosed structure where people are cooking over an open flame is carbon monoxide poisoning. Each of the Turks is fitted with the following fire safety features:
- Fire extinguisher
- Fire blanket
- Smoke/fire alarm (kitchen rated and carbon monoxide)
- Digital carbon monoxide sensor
The carbon monoxide sensor is very interesting because it provides a readout in parts per million (ppm).
