Repaired Bikes Retrieved from Marshall!!

Sat., 9/16, 8 a.m. - Fred and Mark and I rendezvoused at W4W repair shop, emptied the trailer of scrap, hitched it up, drove to Marshall, WI, and retrieved 30 'repaired' bikes.

Half the bikes were taken to W4W where Mark and Don started cleaning them up and checking them over. 17 of the bikes were taken to to storage at the Ironworks.

So...if kids are looking for bikes, we should have 'em!

Ryan, a new volunteer showed up around 11 a.m.

So...Thanks to Fred and Mark and Don and Ryan. This has been hanging over our heads for many moons

Thanks too to Vance McCaw for storing the bikes for lo these many months. Bet he won't do that again soon.

A Note In Regard To Storage at Ironworks -

I talked to a woman named Megan. There is going to be some sort of art installation at the Ironworks and they want to use our space there. They are willing to move our bikes to a different, less-accessible area of the Ironworks from October 6th through October 29th. The bikes wouldn't be totally inaccessible, just harder to get to.
I don't see a problem with it...how about anyone else? Megan's ph. number is 852-3280, email is makatz@wisc.edu.
The bikes are kinda sorted out. If anybody wants to see the bikes and the space, contact me and we can go over and maybe tag the bikes to keep the groups cohesive.

UPWARD AND ONWARD!

yeah... let's go over to Ironworks sometime soon. I wouldn't mind seeing what it's all about (not too glamorous, I'm sure, but never the less... ) Would like to see what kinda inventory we have there.

some night I'm working, some night your working, some night.
