On Nov. 8th, we held our 3rd workday with the Navy Supply School. Once again, Capt. Davis and Lt. O'Brien showed up with over 2 dozen volunteers to help out. The progress made by the Staff and Students was simply amazing - we accomplished our goals for the day, and more! The outer ditch of the Redoubt is now completely clear of brush. In some areas of the ditch, we even got to the point of raking up small bits of debris! We were assisted in our efforts by our regular volunteers, several CDSG members, and Dave P. from the Yahoo Coast Defense list!


Folks at work...










The ditch - "after" pictures...



Cast and Crew...(minus me!)


Our resident chain-saw wizards have started on the task of taking out some of the large trees that have been allowed to thrive on or around the Redoubt. This particular tree's roots had started to shift the large blocks forming the "wing" walls of the main entrance to the works.



By the time we'd finished lunch, we'd hit all our objectives for the day. Many of the volunteers and sailors were still eager for more, so we headed up to the roof of the Redoubt to extend our progress there as well...







A view of the recently cleared redan with a new brush pile. All this material was moved up from the ditch - and is awaiting our next chipper rental....stay tuned.
