No License Required to Eat Breakfast

Come Join Sparc this Saturday at Gus’ Keystone restaurant. No license required to eat Breakfast, or talk Ham over Ham.


Afterwards come to the site and help Sparc usher in a new area as we are Tankless. We have lots of new stuff at the site including parts and pieces that are available for the members to help complete their projects. Ask Kevin or one of the officers about what is available. See you for Breakfast. The info is at the below link.


Second Saturday Breakfast

Tank Out

As Harry wrote earlier today…

“At 11:50 today the fuel tank departed the property never to be seen again.  I will send pictures later.  RT says it will be about a month before we see a bill because he has to wait for the soil sample results to come back.  He sees nothing to be concerned about though – there was no sign of leakage.”

Well the club’s largest liability is off the site. Just waiting on the resulting soil test and fingers cross we are good. The soil looked clean and the tank held it’s 400 gallons for how many years so that looks promising. Both Harry and I were surprised at the depth of the tank, it also took RT aback,  the bottom was darn near 7 feet down. Below is the link to the  Gallery of her being removed. Just some work on resetting the fence posts and we are good to go.
