I don't know how many who would read this have seen real craftsmen at work. Gary Smith wore me out just watching him. He is a testament to what a carpenter is. I have seen quite a few in my life but not as proficient as he. Gary you need to slow down a little so you don't make the rest of us so tired. Great job you did at the range it was a pleasure to see you at your craft.
Yes, Gary knows his craft. I had plans to build a 16X20 overhead shelter. When Gary and I talked about it Monday morning we decided that if we were going to build at all, might as well build as big as we had room for, so the 26X36 shelter was started Monday morning.
Two men with a plan on Monday, turned into a great project and a good time working with friends. I called for back up help and Mark Clemons showed up on Tuesday around 10 AM. Dennis was there on Wednesday, and Toby Osner came down at 6 AM on Wednesday morning and worked a solid day helping us, before he had to leave for home and work a nigh shift. Mark Bruckelmeyer was there early on Thursday for some valuable help. I will say, we cut it close getting everything done, and it took the the help from everyone that pitched it to get it done on time.
+1 on needing all the good help everyone there seemed to be more than eager to be of service to the final outcome imo a definite move in the right direction for the future of these matches a big thank you goes out to Hank for being willing to make this large investment to improve the comfort conditions for all that attend
