A mini-collective of (at least) The People's Prince, Justin, 360/720 and Captain Kirk, conducted a working bee to fix a large proportion of the club dollies. They gave up a couple of hours of time they normally spend with their loved ones or least-hostile acquaintances, or doing remunerative work, to make glorious benefit of DBSC and it entire membership.
The volunteering work included:
- careful design review of why our new dollies had wheels constantly falling off;
- review of Chemistry 101 notes to select the appropriate riveting materials;
- procurement of approprate axle materials, rivets and split-pins during the week; and,
- fitting and testing all the new axles and securing the wheels appropriately.
Later in the day the People's Prince called for subsequently damaged dollies be put aside so they can be fixed immediately.
The idea of the club dollies is to facilitate efficiently emptying and filling the club of Lasers each Saturday afternoon.
Some leave dollies on the vinyl flooring and then go off for a shower, so it might be useful for new members to be aware of this Dollie Rant. Long-standing members might need to be reminded.
In particularly, let's try to hose and pack our Lasers well away from the roller-door so we have an efficient flow of Lasers.
