Andrew Kirk , Cory Mitchell and Chris Greene installed brackets for our new lights.  Keith, Eric Wittler and Cody “Lawnmower Guy” Carlyle welded up the overhead light extensions.  Ed, Eric and Cody drove over to Spanaway Airport and returned with a trailer load of equipment to be packed up for the upcoming test session.  Thanks to Lawnmower Guy for the use of his trailer!  Lars Pedersen spent most of the day driving around Pierce County picking up parts!  Sorry Lars.
