Shane, there's a couple extra pads for "shorts"...

I expect to be one of those guys helping, and I assume Jeremy will be around too... I might be able to round up a person or two also if you need any more than that. Josh Ohnemus might be interested in at least helping to see how it works - as he's working on a course in Carlisle...

OK, all 47 concrete forms are clean and oiled, the park "windflower" is marked out in paint and everything is measured. We just recieved the baskets Tuesday and we put them all together and welded everything plus we repainted the welds. I have iron punches so every basket has our citys name punched in it in different locations.
Our next step is to go around to every pad and trash and bench location and spade around the paint so the bobcat doesn't tear everything to hell.
Then form, bed everything in gravel, tamp and we sould be ready to pour. I hope to start the spade work next week. Matters on the weather.
Here are the new and final measurments;
Hole 1- 238' w/ bench
#2- 247'
#3- 287' w/ bench and trash can
#4- Long 366', Short 302'
#5- Long 294', Short 220'
#6- Long 324', Short 226' w/ bench and trash can
#7- Long 438', Short 261'
#8- 274' and MAYBE a bench (the more I look at it, I don't like the location)
#9- 310' w/ bench and trash can
#10- 230' w/bench
#11- 254' w/ bench
#12- 299'
Practice basket will have a trash can close by.

I would also like to note that it is going to be hard to get bodies out there this spring during the weeknends. Every weekend from now til June is pretty much full with tourneys around Iowa.
NO!......Welp!?

Shane's right. At a bare *minimum*, you need 1 guy slopping mud, 2 guys on the screed, and 1 doing finish work. Much more workable is a minimum of 3 sloppers, 2 screed, and 2 finishers.

Broom is also correct.

All in my opinion, of course.

3 sloppers, 2 skreeder and 2 finishers? Damn guys, sounds to me like your all union. How many bosses do we need? :)

Doesn't seem like you're making too many mistakes mtldetect1.

Also, don't let the truck get too far ahead of the screeders. Once at Ewing, we had 3 finishers, but only 2 screeders and the truck was several pads ahead pouring concrete. The finishers had to work hard to save many of the pads, and we couldn't get a good finish on one of them because it was too dry by the time they got there.

Raw concrete that has not been leveled, dries out fast. If we had at least been able to level them off, there would have been more time to finish them.

Good notes, guys... I'm sure that among the three of us "on the team" , that's a good start to getting it done.

Just make sure you put a good textured finish on the teepads.

for future knowledge, pour a 4000 mix, have them bring it at a 6 to 8 slump, never, never have a truck go ahead to the next pad with out the screeder (or screeders if your union) :D as soon as it is screeded, bull float it then spray it with a anti-dry spray. The finisher, (finishers if your union) :lol: will be right behind him, (or them if your union) 8) and hits it with a walking edger, then hits ite edge line with a mag to get rid of the edge line, then (depending on the heat of the day and the humidy) with a pad that is 4 inches thick, 5 ft on the rear and seven ft in the front and 10 feet long = 3/4 of a yard, you should be able to finish 3 pads before going back to the 1st pad to broom it and always pull the broom, never push. For future knowledge
By the way, I am a union brother :wink:

thanks Jason... Does one of us have your phone number?

It sounds like we may be working this weekend, I need to figure out w/ Gary what's planned, and if other people will be helpful - and I'll roudn up people who have volunteered.

I remember meeting Bill @ the DSMDGC metting in Feb, but don't have his email - if anyone else knows who I'm talking about let me know.

Ok, this weekend, starting Fri night we'll be doing "pre-construction" for the concrete sites (pads, benches, trash cans).

I don't know exactly what time windows I want to get people together yet because of a funeral & another thing, but I'll post in the next day or two as to a final windows for a few hours where we can get people working together...
