CDSG Special Tour - Fort Adams

Sunday, April 1 , 2012

I would like to invite the members of CDSG to visit Fort Adams to view the nearly $2 million worth of improvements to the work. Non-historic features including fences and hedges have been removed from the interior of the fort. Casemates and bastions have been cleared of rubble and debris. Also not to be missed is the newly cleared outer works - see attached photo. See the extensive land defenses of Fort Adams as they have not been seen in 60 years! This will be your best opportunity to view the outer works before the growing season starts. Also included in the tour will be the Advanced Redoubt. Plan to meet at the Redoubt/Jail by the main gate of the Fort at 9 AM.

regards,

Chris

About how long of a tour is this going to be? I am not a CDSG member yet, but was thinking of becoming one.

I would expect that it will take most of the day, including the Redoubt. We will probably break for lunch after doing the main fort, and tour the Redoubt afterwards.

Wait... April 1st!? Is this a joke to "tour" the fort and when we all get there put us to work lol JK

I've only volunteered a few times due to my schedule but would i still be available to attend?

And does the tour include the infamous HDCP? Haven't been to Newport much to try looking for it. lol

Any of the other batteries viewable? Never had the inclination to hop the fences with the coast guard around Smile

I was only thinking of the 3rd system stuff for this one. That's a full day in itself. Keith you can come as a volunteer. No work on this one I promise. As usual plan for some mud, and bring a flashlight everybody!

Where is the meeting spot again ?

I hope to see you all there.

Thanks to zman, jack and everyone else who made this happen. I had a great time and it was great to finally get to meet everyone. Hopefully the next workday will be on a day off and I can finally help with the cleanup Smile
