The weather is looking even worse for the weekend, so I don't think we are going to be able to get any painting done.
I have rebooked the line markers for a week later, and we have moved the painting bee to Monday 27th - hopefully not too many people are busy/away

Cheers

If all goes to plan on the 27th / 28th the track will be effectively finished ready for use on the 29th

Bump

Remember painting bee on tomorrow. Karl and I will be there from 7.30am, and we hope to wrap it up early-mid afternoon.
Come up and lend a hand, bring any rollers/poles and trays you have

Cheers 8)

We got 80% of the track done today before the bloody rain came and ruined the party again. But all the infield and curbs are done

Tomorrow is supposedly the lines going down, and putting the red stripes on the curbs, but I don't see the weather agreeing with us on that. So I'll see what happens tomorrow and we will probably have to shuffle that around a bit.
