oKilled wasps in kitchen
oChanging rooms checked
oKilled wasps on playground.
oLook for wasps in storage on 9-26
2) The owners are building a new gate! Sooooo....
We'll use the old gate or a cattle panel connected to the cattle guard
to enable us to keep the gate open during the event... This can wait
until my return if ya'll wish.

shovel and hoe work.

oPlayground has been inspected, the wasps killed and the slide wiped.
9) Clean out the KITCHEN - I have a string of lights and there are
small fans, an inverter and marine battery will be available. I would
be good to have at least two other deep cycle batteries to power the
