Then we drove to the Muster site where we were greeted with a fence on the hill top where we had planned to have the food, flea market and static display. A number of members put on their hip boots and walked down to the pond.
With the rain they have had and with the rain forecasted for the next week and a half and the fence a motion was made and passed unanimously that:
THE MUSTER WOULD BE HELD AT THE MAIN EXHIBITION GROUNDS ON THE GRAVEL DRIVEWAY USING THE PAVILIONS AND THE HYDRANT FOR PUMPING.
Flea market, food vendor, registration, information table etc will utilize one of the pavilions.
For those wanting to draft/pump, we can make a couple of drafting basins by using 2 ladders and a ceiling hook/pike pole formed into a triangle and with a salvage cover or cheap plastic cover laid over the ladders to form the basin. Note: I am sure Malden knows how to make one of these since it was taught in basic fire school 50+ yrs ago. Give him a call if you have any questions. We can lay one line from the hydrant with a pumper and use lines off it to keep the tanks filled. Very simple fire ground water supply evolution! For those wanting to play with drafting my suggestion is to obtain a 21/2 or 3” hard sleeve instead of wrestling with large sleeves. We will be flowing a limited amount of water, big sleeves not needed.
PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT about this change.
PLAN ON UTILIZING THE FOOD VENDOR, HE WILL SET UP EARLY, HAVE BREAKFAST SANDWICHES AND LUNCH PLUS DRINKS.Remember, the only way we can have the convenience of food on site is by us supporting the vendor.
We should be able to have a fun day and now we know where it will be instead of a last minute change and people not getting the word.
Any questions, call (240-229-2643) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) Frank Tremel.
We will have a short meeting as usual after the Muster. Something new to think about and discuss. It has been suggested to me that we hold this years picnic at the Pleasant Valley VFD carnival grounds which has rest rooms etc and a pond which might make a Muster site.
Pleasant Valley is located a few miles north of Westminster
