As of last week the future basketball court began to take shape (a flat square kind of shape).  Steve Jones with his big steam shovel (ok, diesel) made quick work of leveling the area.  Bill Rodwell thoroughly impressed the kids at Friday’s playgroup with the loud compactor (see photo below) that he muscled around the future court.

Next some stable ground fill may be brought in and Bill might even make a return visit to playgroup with the compactor to ready the area for the concrete slab.

Stay tuned… in the next few weeks we plan to have a GRAND OLE WORK PARTY at the playground.  Help will be needed for setting up the concrete form boards, scrubbing/cleaning the giant tires, hand digging out around the old playground structure, cutting brush, and more.
