We met our goal of $20,000 before the Saturday deadline. For more details on the event head over to USA Ski Jumping by clicking the poster below.
Here are some pictures of workers (ski jumpers) laying the plastic so that the hill could be used for summer jumping.
Here you can see what we place under the plastic. Old gravel pit conveyer belts are recycled to be used as the first layer of construction. A layer of rubber is then layed down over that. Finally, the plastic is screwed down onto the rubber. The conveyer belts are bolted down to concrete at the top.
Screws are partially screwed into the plastic before the plastic 'shingles' are lowered down to the workers laying them in place. This speeds up the process of installation.
What a difference from 11 months ago.
