The recently concluded Spring Cleanup broke the record as the fastest/quickest of all time. All categories, work assignments and tasks were done within roughly one hour after the start- from beginning coffee and donuts to the last sweep of the shed floor. Thanks to previous major investments in recent years of time, effort and materials the basic components of the field (safety fencing, shed, etc.) have stood the test of Mother Nature. Lead kudos go to Dave Londin for divining yet another built-up pit table as if by magic. Peter Peale’s new shed doors were also acknowledged, and the club owes thanks for everyone else who showed up and contributed- whether assisting with putting up the new tarp, repairing the post fence or just sweeping out the shed. Great job, guys!
Sad news to report. Two members of the extended M.A.A.W. family have left us in recent days. Director Marland Oliva’s Dad- Armand- passed after a long fight with Cancer. Former member Bill Gheduzzi succumbed to Type II Diabetes complications which included cardiac arrest. Both men were in their sixties- would that they could have been with us awhile longer- fair skies and a following wind to them both. On behalf of the Executive, Directorate and Membership; we offer our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to Marland’s and Bill’s families.
The Park Super has advised that they have opened the upper picnic area/pavilion for the season, and as a result we no longer need to monitor the access chain for entry or egress. Park personnel will take care of it both at the beginning and end of the day (dusk) as before.
