26 June 2019Pauline Digs Deep at JSL Observatory

A busy and successful day for the Work Crew today at JSL Observatory.


Gales over the past couple+ years had taken their toll on our south-facing fence and it was never going to last out another observing season.


After much digging of deep holes, 3off 4x4 posts, four and a half hundredweight of Postcrete, and coach bolts & washers the fence is secure again and should be good for a few years to come.


Funniest moment of the day - we four guys got blethering and someone forgot to tell Pauline to stop digging.  Biggest hole we’ve seen hand dug (with a gardening trowel) .... ever! 😂
