We finally wrapped it up around 7 or 7:30. We had completed cutting all 7 Saturns - 3 of them were completed with glitter paper and support lath; one had paper but no lath, and 3 were just cut and not finished. We have enough glitter paper for one of the remaining 3, but we'll have to find something else to cover the last 2. We also made all of the quotation signs for the ConCourse (see some samples in the photos below), 50+ crepe paper decorations for First Night, and many sections of stage kneewall. So there's still some things to finish up, but we got a lot done. Thanks to all the people who came and helped out! We appreciate it! Hope to see some of you again next weekend, when we get to laminate badges and do other fun stuff.

It's 6:00 and the work goes on....


During the work session today, we kept getting reports of the various committee members living in the path of Charley. Melanie Herz reports that she had to evacuate, but she's fine and she reports that she took the N4 volunteers database with her, so that's fine, too. Steve and Sue Francis report that Pat and Roger Sims and Dick Spelman are fine, with only some minor damage to their houses. Steve and Sue report that a neighbor's grapefruit fell over and knocked down Roger's fence... I suspect that was a grapefruit tree that she's talking about, or else that's some mighty big grapefruit.

More pictures. First Night decorations, lots of Saturn ring parts, and starting to apply the glitter paper to the rings.

The August 14 work session is underway at the NESFA Clubhouse. After finishing off the Progress Report mailing (which we needed to do first because it was piled on the table in the middle of the main room, we started in making Saturn rings, signs, and stage kneewall.
