Runway numbers painting – volunteer opportunity!

Hello to all,

We have a great opportunity that is being presented to the airport – Oregon Pilots Association, Lane County Chapter, has been looking for a few community projects.  They would like to re-paint the runway numbers and center line for 77S.  Todd Hurt and myself have been working together to see when this project could happen – it appears that the either of the next two Mondays could work, with the 20th being the best for the volunteers. The tentative outline for the project is to start the painting at 8 am and be completed early afternoon.

Before we confirm dates, I would like your input – it is our intention to complete this project with as little interruption to the airport and it’s users as possible.  Could you please email myself or Todd Hurt at your earliest convenience if Monday 20th would cause any of you a great hardship.   Thanks

Todd Hurt adds:

Not to apply too much pressure but our volunteers are best set up for this Monday the 20th.

Another option would be to start at 8am, break for lunch and open the runway up for the one hour, then close it after lunch if needed.   So a window to depart or arrive in the A.M. and at noon.

Also if there are any available volunteers from 77S, we should be able to speed the process up.  As of now, I have 6 individuals for this Monday.
