I know on Labor Day if we go to Gilberts I was hoping to maybe grill and drink beer
More the reason to use power tools! Like I said, we can build the stand in about two hours, maybe less. Then, we can enjoy the stand, and when the bash day occurs, we're set. This will last a while, plus with the synthetic turf on the stand, it won't be a muddy mess

The way I designed the stand, their should be only 4 cuts total, but some drilling is required, however, I've got 3 cordless drills and two powered drills, and plenty of batteries for each. Other than that, screws and bolts hold everything together

I'd like to get it done on Monday, but if not alot of people are interested in helping, we'll just have a cookout and some bash/racing events.

PM/text me if anyone has any other questions.

What I'll do is put it all on my company's account, then people can either pay me cash, check, credit card as well, the credit card payments will go straight to the businesses account. Again, depending on how many people are willing to help, will determine the cost. All cash/checks will then go back to business. you can even write business name on check if preferred.

Thanks for those that helped out. We've got a small amount of work left, but nothing like we've been doing. Now on to improving the track
